Our numbers show 310 business and property services outfits based in the City exhibited signs of distress in August. London-wide, the figure came to nearly 2,140.Their woes came despite an overall improvement in corporate health during the traditionally quiet summer month. The number of companies operating on the edge declined marginally to 1,806, while in the City the number fell to 1,363.Nick Hood, partner at Begbies Traynor, said the insolvency practitioner’s separate Red Flag alert system identified around 17,000 business at risk across the UK in August in services sectors such as construction, IT and recruitment.Hood added: “As the full impact of the October spending review begins to be felt in the latter part of this year and on into 2011, failures of these types of companies will inevitably rise, causing significant problems for the London economy.” center_img whatsapp Government cuts herald tough times for services firms whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepedia Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Jasmine Dow was among the 5,000 people gathered in Melbourne’s Federation Square.She said, “The “Light the Dark” vigils were advertized only 32 hours before thousands of people gathered around Australia to mourn the death of Reza Berati on Manus Island under Australia’s watch. Not only did we mourn Reza’s death, but also Australia’s unethical and inhumane treatment of refugees and asylum seekers.“At the Federation Square vigil the mood was sombre. The presenters spoke with a clear and unified message. We stood listening, with our candles lighting the darkness, in the hope that our corporate voice would be heard; a voice that says that the actions of our government are done not in our name, a voice that says the current solution is ‘wrong’, a voice that calls for another way, a way of compassion.“When I reflect on the vigil, I can’t help but reflect on our own faith confession: Jesus, light of the world.  This ‘light of the world’ was himself a refugee. I am challenged by the vigil and by our faith confession on what the church will do, or is doing, as the Body of Christ, to light the darkness of Australia’s refugee policy. How we will hold the leaders of our nation accountable?”In commenting on Reza Berati’s death in a media statement on Feb. 20, Bishop Philip Huggins, chair of the Anglican Church’s Migrant and Refugee Working Group, said that the federal government’s policies on asylum seekers must be reviewed.“A civilized government must be able to control its refugee intake without resort to measures of intentional cruelty,” he said.“We have previously been a generous nation towards refugees. Refugees’ contributions have, thereafter, enriched our common wealth. Our own history tells us what blessings follow when the spirit and detail of the Refugee Convention is honored. Conscience cries out for a review of current implementation measures.” Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Submit a Job Listing Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem By Emma HalgrenPosted Feb 26, 2014 Rector Belleville, IL Rector Washington, DC Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Hopkinsville, KY An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA center_img Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Curate Diocese of Nebraska Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Director of Music Morristown, NJ Submit a Press Release Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Smithfield, NC Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Submit an Event Listing Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Courtesy photo[Episcopal News Service] The University of the South, the Episcopal college and School of Theology in Sewanee, Tennessee, stepped up its racial justice and reconciliation efforts on Sept. 8 with the release of statements denouncing its past association with the Confederacy and committing “to an urgent process of institutional reckoning.”“The University of the South categorically rejects its past veneration of the Confederacy and of the ‘Lost Cause,’” the university’s Board of Regents wrote, pledging to “make Sewanee a model of diversity, of inclusion, of intellectual rigor and of loving spirit in an America that rejects prejudice and embraces possibility.”Vice Chancellor and President Reuben Brigety II also announced a new round of initiatives intended “to lead in embracing equality and inclusion.” These include recruiting more students and faculty from underrepresented communities; continuing its research-based truth and reconciliation program; ensuring that “the full history of the South” is presented; and creating a commission that will evaluate memorials, buildings and place names on campus.Reuben Brigety II, vice chancellor and president of Sewanee: The University of the South, speaks at the university on Feb. 28, 2020. Courtesy photoBrigety wrote that this is the first time Sewanee leadership has “so clearly and powerfully” repudiated the racism that has haunted much of the university’s history. “By facing up to our past, we embrace the promise once and for all of moving beyond it.”Sewanee’s connection with white supremacy dates back to its founding in 1857 by southern dioceses of The Episcopal Church that wanted to establish a “slavers’ university, to represent the interests of a slaveholding society,” according to Sewanee history professor Woody Register.For nearly four years, Register has served as the director of Sewanee’s Roberson Project on Slavery, Race, and Reconciliation. While the six-year research project is ongoing, the students and faculty working on it have delivered a preliminary research summary to the university leadership.Among its findings are that Sewanee “was the only institution of higher education designed from the start to represent, protect and promote the South’s civilization of bondage; and launched expressly for the slaveholding society of the South.”The summary also describes early Sewanee as “a child of the Confederacy,” with key leadership roles typically filled by men who had been slave owners, defenders of slavery and Confederate military leaders. The university also received key financial backing from donors whose fortunes derived from some of the South’s largest slavery-based plantations.“There remain many buildings and monuments on Sewanee’s campus that memorialize slaveholders or supporters of the Confederacy, articulators of scientific and other theories of white supremacy, and defenders of Jim Crow segregation,” the Roberson Project said.Sewanee workshop guides priests grappling with Confederate symbols in their parishesSewanee also refused to admit African Americans for nearly a century, and the university’s administration only allowed the School of Theology to accept its first Black student in 1953 after all but one of the theology faculty members resigned in protest of the university’s racially exclusionary policies.In recent years, Sewanee – which is still owned by 28 Episcopal dioceses – has sought to reckon with its white supremacist past through research and by moving or removing Confederate memorials on campus. The new statement builds on those efforts with a more forceful renunciation of that part of Sewanee’s past.“At its worst, the university has been associated with the most repugnant aspects of our national and regional history,” the regents wrote. “We are not flinching from that hard truth, for the truth, as we were assured long ago, can make us free—free from the prejudices and the passions of the past.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Baseball 2017 Preview: Pasadena City College Lancers Talent Stands Out

first_img All-SCC First Teamer Jeremy Conant leads the Lancers in 2017.Pasadena City College third-year baseball head coach Pat McGee will model his 2017 Lancers differently than his first two squads. Last year’s high-octane offense will change more to one that manufactures runs through a variety of ways. And for the first time, PCC’s pitching is deep in reliable arms.While several key players from last year have moved on with scholarships including All-South Coast Conference First Team first baseman Joe Quire (Azusa Pacific University) and catcher Justin Cage (Curry College, Mass.), McGee brings back two prominent starters in All-SCC First Team designated hitter Jeremy Conant, now the first baseman, and talented shortstop Alex Briggs, who has already signed a scholarship to attend Long Island University (Brooklyn, NY). The pair were the only Lancers to play in all 36 games last season.Conant was the 2016 team leader in home runs (4), RBI (27) and total hits (61) while batting .377. Briggs, who hit .252 with 19 RBI, led the squad in runs scored (34) and defensive assists (124). Briggs turned 21 double plays as one of the conference’s best defensive middle infielders.“For the first time in three years here, I can say that I have two true sophomore leaders,” McGee said. “I have great faith in the sophomore leadership. They have earned the respect of their teammates and coaching staff as a result of their tremendous work ethic and character. Conant is one of the state’s best hitters, and we expect Briggs to be a force at the plate this year.”Also part of McGee’s starting nine features returning DH from the ’15 team in Anthony Fickewirth and sophomore transfer third baseman Andres Kim, who earned a scholarship to UC San Diego after being an All-Mission League and Pasadena Star-News All-Area Second Team infieder at St. Francis High. Kim batted .338 his senior prep year and is expected to bat lead-off for PCC.McGee is high on freshman second baseman Jose Jimenez (Roosevelt High), who may alternate with Kim at third base as well. Jimenez was an All-Eastern League player.“Jose hits the ball hard to all fields,” McGee siad. “He’s a steady fielder, and he’s one of many players in our lineup that can run the bases well.”Behind the plate, McGee is excited about the throwing arm of first-year catcher Jessie Garcia, who was Valle Vista League MVP as a senior (batted .432). As a junior, he caught Los Angeles Times Player of the Year and Colorado Rockies’ draft pick Peter Lambert when they helped San Dimas High win 31 straight games as a nationally-ranked school. Matt Shults (South Pasadena) is another catcher with a strong arm and gives PCC depth in the backstop position.In the outfield, John Bicos (St. Francis) will be the team’s centerfielder and is a player that McGee hopes can “add some RBI in the middle of the lineup.” Tanner Whitlock (Burroughs High, Burbank) is the lefty-hitting part of a platoon in left field with right-handed batting Nico Martinez (Alto Loma). In right field, Brett Wheat (La Salle High) and Sumner Smith, a 2-time, PSN All-Area Team selection and All-Pacific League First Team choice from Pasadena High. Sumner knocked in 27 RBI and batted .366 as a senior.The pitching staff, coached also by assistant Nico Calderaro, is the most talented since McGee took over the program in 2014. The team is bolstered by four top starters including letterman and scheduled opening day pitcher Chris Brown, who led last year’s staff with a record of 4-3 and a 3.78 ERA in 50 innings, and returning All-SCC honorable mention from 2015 in Nick Esparza, who was that team’s most reliable pitcher with a 4.33 ERA in a team-best 68.2 innings pitched.Maranatha High product Paul McAllister comes in as a PSN All-Area First Team selection, and an All-Olympic League choice who pitched as a senior to a 6-1 record with 60 strikeouts in 60.2 innings. He hurled three shutouts. Rounding out this fearsome foursome is redshirt freshman Race Gardner, who helped Glendora High to a Palomares League title as an All-League First Teamer in 2015. Gardner transferred from APU.“All four guys have the ability to pitch at the front end of games,” McGee said. “Both Brown and Esparza can pitch to contact, and they bring solid community college experience to the hill. McAllister and Gardner are hard throwers but can locate and hit their spots. These guys are going to keep us in games and allow us to be selective as we go to the bullpen.”Among the relievers, John Mendoza (La Serna High) is a hard-throwing closer type while the potential is there for Jesse Hanckel, PCC’s football quarterback in 2016, who was an All-Olympic League First Team baseball player at Village Christian High. In his final two prep seasons on the mound in 2014-15, Hanckel put up outstanding numbers with an 18-5 record, 139 Ks in 134 innings, and a 1.62 ERA.While McGee’s Lancers have talent, the coach is mindful of the things that helped the program get better in his first two seasons.“One of the things we established was a fundamentally sound defense, both in the infield and outfield. I expect that to continue for us. Our biggest challenge will be to generate enough runs to give us a chance to win games. We have 20 freshmen on the roster so they have to develop at a faster rate in order for us to compete in a very difficult South Coast Conference North Division.”Besides pitching coach Calderaro, in his third season, McGee has added Jason Munoz to the assistant coaching staff.PCC opens its 39-game schedule for the 2017 season on Friday, Jan. 27 when it travels to face West Los Angeles College. First pitch is 2 p.m. The Lancers then host the same Wildcats team on Saturday, Jan. 28 in their home opener at Brookside Park’s Jackie Robinson Memorial Field.

Serving the Legal Needs of a Recovering Puerto Rico

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago HMB Law Group Hurricane Maria hurricanes Natural Disasters Puerto Rico 2018-10-10 David Wharton About Author: David Wharton Share Save October 10, 2018 1,859 Views On Wednesday, attorneys Stephen M. Hladik, Miguel Maza, Rose Marie Brook, and Steven Horne announced the formation of HMB Law Group, LLC, a new law firm headquartered in the heart of San Juan’s financial district. HMB has been designed from the ground up to meet the dynamic legal challenges of both financial institutions and Puerto Rican community members as the island recovers from the devastating storms.Specializing in the needs of the real estate finance industry in Puerto Rico and beyond, HMB Law Group will offer a complete suite of legal services. The Default Servicing Department will be headed by founding members Stephen Hladik and Miguel Maza. Hladik is a former Pennsylvania Deputy Attorney General in charge of the Harrisburg office of the state’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, a recognized expert in lending law, mortgage foreclosure and tax sale law, and has represented clients from every sector of the mortgage industry. Maza has practiced in all aspects of consumer finance law for almost a quarter century, successfully representing lenders and creditors in numerous matters across the Territory and in the United States.Hurricane Maria’s impact on Puerto Rico caused $90 billion in damages to the island, and independent study from George Washington University’s Milken School of Public Health in August increased the official death toll from 62 to 2,975. In late September, HUD Secretary Ben Carson and Puerto Rico’s Governor Ricardo Rosselló announced the formal execution of a $1.5 billion grant agreement to help citizens in Puerto Rico to recover from Hurricanes Irma and Maria, $1 billion of which will be allocated to rebuilding housing.With many Puerto Rico residents having fled before and after the storm, the island’s housing and foreclosure crisis has been exacerbated by the difficulty in communicating with those borrowers—a problem that the newly formed HMB Law Group hopes to help address.“In addition to my experience as an attorney, I am very happy to apply my years of special servicing experience to work with clients to deliver an effective borrower outreach solution,” Horne said. “Many borrowers have left the island; some permanently, some planning to return. We have the ability to quickly locate them and help them to identify the best alternative for their particular situation.”“I am very pleased to be working with Steve, Rose Marie, and all of the members of the firm,” said Maza. “We have put together an all-star team that will make a very positive impact on the island.”HMB is also a flagship sponsor of PR18, an upcoming industry conference that will gather industry and government leaders in Puerto Rico to help design the next phase of the rebuilding process.
