The said series is not part of the FTP signed with Sony.

E. B. Du Bois and the Black Social Gospel, renowned social ethicist Gary Dorrien describes the early history of the Black Social Gospel from its 19th century founding to its close association in the 20th century with W. E. B. Du Bois. He offers a new perspective on modern Christianity and the civil rights era by delineating the tradition of social justice theology and activism that led to Martin Luther King, Jr.The book has earned Dorrien the 2017 Grawemeyer Award in Religion. Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, jointly with the University of Louisville, awards the $100,000 prize to honor and publicize creative and significant insights into the relationship between human beings and the divine. The award also recognizes ways in which this relationship may inspire or empower human beings to attain wholeness, integrity, or meaning, either individually or in community.Dorrien is the Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary in New York City and Professor of Religion at Columbia University. An Episcopal priest and lifelong athlete, Dorrien is the author of 17 books and approximately 275 articles that range across the fields of ethics, social theory, theology, philosophy, politics, and history. Philosopher Cornel West describes him as “the preeminent social ethicist in North America today,” and philosopher Robert Neville describes him as “the most rigorous theological historian of our time.”Dorrien is among the five Grawemeyer Award winners being named this week pending formal approval by the university’s board of trustees. The University of Louisville presents the prizes annually for outstanding works in music composition, ideas improving world order, psychology and education and presents a religion prize jointly with Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. The 2017 winners will present free lectures about their award-winning ideas when they visit Louisville in April to accept their $100,000 prizes.The Black Social Gospel emerged from the trauma of Reconstruction to ask what a “new abolition” would require in American society. It became an important tradition of religious thought and resistance, helping to create an alternative public sphere of excluded voices and providing the intellectual underpinnings of the civil rights movement. This tradition has been seriously overlooked, despite its immense legacy.“We urgently need this historical and theological account in our religious communities and public discourse,” said Tyler Mayfield, Faculty Director of the Grawemeyer Award in Religion and the A.B. Rhodes Associate Professor of Old Testament at Louisville Seminary. “Dorrien’s book highlights a disremembered part of American religious history, one that holds relevance for contemporary discussions about race and U.S. religion. His compelling narration of the Black Social Gospel as a profoundly religious tradition of thought and activism underscores the crucial connections among the Black Church, social Christianity, the creation of black institutions, and the struggle for freedom.” 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 Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Washington, DC Rector Shreveport, LA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Smithfield, NC Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Tags Director of Music Morristown, NJ Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Submit a Job Listing Rector Knoxville, TN Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Pittsburgh, PA Episcopal priest Gary Dorrien wins Grawemeyer Award in Religion Renowned ethicist’s latest book focuses on early history and influences of Black Social Gospel Submit an Event Listing This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Hopkinsville, KY Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH last_img read more

BL House / Studio Guilherme Torres

Client: BL Adapting the house structure to a narrow lot in a condominium in Londrina, Brazil was the greatest challenge of this building designed by Guilherme Torres. In order to take advantage of the natural characteristics of the land in relation to its neighbours, the house was partially lowered in the social area, where it recedes 5m from the street. This receding provided the environs with abundance of natural light with the bonus of privacy in both the social and leisure areas.Save this picture!© Beto ConsorteRecommended ProductsWindowsFAKRORoof Windows – FPP-V preSelect MAXEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreLouvers / ShuttersLunawoodThermowood BattensDoorsEGGERWood Laminate Doors in Molecular Plant Science InstituteThe structures of the house hide their actual functions, making it look serene as well as impressive. Its elongated structure is parted by a wood box. Within the wood box one can find the stairwell and the main entrance on one side and the service area entrance on the other side. As the doors and the structure have been wainscoted, they become appropriately concealed in the composition. The garage has a gentle slope paved with stones, giving the structure an elegant look. Save this picture!© Beto ConsorteWood, stone and masonry work are conspicuous in the whole house. The structures were designed and built in with concrete and metal structures, which made the house lighter. The living area was sealed with glass and aluminium, yet integrating it with the swimming pool. The brick pillars were coated with sisal rope, material which is abundantly found in Brazil. The project allocates the spaces in a linear form, and all the bedrooms have French windows overlooking the leisure area. The home-theatre above the garage holds a winter garden providing the couple with privacy.Save this picture!© Beto ConsorteProject gallerySee allShow less12th International Architecture Exhibition VeniceArticles2010 Monsters of Design (MoD)Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard BL House / Studio Guilherme Torres CopyHouses•Londrina, Brazil Year:  CopyAbout this officeStudio Guilherme TorresOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLondrinaWoodHousesBrazilPublished on August 16, 2010Cite: “BL House / Studio Guilherme Torres” 16 Aug 2010.

She told Welsh technology news website PingNews: “Last year, I wanted to take part in Sports Relief, but I had no one to go with and I ended up not going.

TCU overwhelms Texas Tech, claims wins Big 12 tournament

first_imgFrogs claim back-to-back titles with 4-0 sweep of Texas Tech Facebook TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello ReddIt Twitter TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Robbie Vaglio printThe Frogs capped their dominant performance against Big 12 competition this season with a 4-0 sweep of No. 41 Texas Tech  at the Big 12 Tournament to claim their second consecutive Big 12 Tournament championship.With this accomplishment, TCU became the first team in the Big 12 since 2009 to claim back-to-back regular season and tournament titles.Cameron Norrie, a native of Auckland, New Zealand, was named Most Outstanding Player for the second straight season – a first-time achievement in conference history. Norrie, the No. 1 ranked singles player in the country, moved to an 11-0 record in the three Big 12 tournaments he has participated in, 6-0 in singles and 5-0 in doubles.“There’s a lot to be proud of,” Coach David Roditi said. “The guys had to overcome a lot to be here. I’m very proud as the head coach of the Frogs, and very proud to be Big 12 champs.”It was TCU’s 19th appearance in the conference tournament final, and TCU took the crown for the 15th time. The win marked TCU’s second conference tournament championship under head coach Roditi. It is the eighth instance in program history that TCU has claimed at least a share of the regular season crown and the conference tournament championship.From the beginning, the Frogs were in control of the match. In doubles play, the No. 33 pair of Jerry Lopez and Reese Stalder were the first pair off the court with a 6-1 victory over the No. 13 pair of Connor Curry and Bjorn Thomson. Norrie and Trevor Johnson secured the doubles point for the Frogs with a 6-2 victory.In singles action, the Frogs quickly won four first sets. Johnson moved to 5-0 in singles play with a 6-1, 6-3 victory to put the Frogs up 2-0. The Frogs won the final two points almost simultaneously, as both Norrie and Stalder finished on cue. Stalder finished with a 6-0, 6-1 victory; seconds later Norrie clinched the championship for the Frogs with a 6-1, 6-3 victory.With the win, the Frogs automatically qualify for the 2017 NCAA Championships.

There are eight candidates now, but only two of them will proceed to the general election in the fall.”The LWV has also made it easier for non-voters, especially young people who have just reached voting age, to register. Pasadena Area’s website features a red button on its home page that registrants can just click, and it will take them to the California Online Voter Registration website.The chapter has also been conducting voter registration drives in schools to encourage voting age students to register. It has even come up with a smartphone app for the purpose. In California, the registration deadline to be able to vote in the 2016 Presidential Preference Primary is on May 23. For the General Election on November 8, the registration deadline is October 24.After the voter registration campaign, what the Pasadena Area LWV does is provide opportunities for voter to know more of the candidates.“For the primary, we have done a couple of candidate forums where we provide opportunities for people to hear from the candidates, to compare all of the candidates,” said Nichols. “We are strictly nonpartisan, so we don’t favor any one particular party and we never recommend candidates. We make it possible for people to hear from the candidates on an equal footing.”The organization also provides Pro-and-Con forms when propositions or issues are on the ballot during certain elections. Nichols said they also conduct presentations to groups where they present both sides of each issue or proposition, part of the group’s voter education campaign.Pasadena Area also subscribes to an update California League of Women Voter’s website,, that now contains not only information about candidates and propositions, but also information about a candidate’s financial support base and the interests that are behind certain propositions.“They have updated the website that they’ve used for years that provides information about candidates, and they’ve merged with another organization that has more financial information about the candidates,” Nichols said. “All these information is now available on Voters Edge. We want to know where a candidate or a proposition is coming from.

Thus, aggrieved by the inaction of the University on the fee issue, the students have expressed their concern.Significantly, as mentioned, the issue of the students is related to the ‘Facilities Fee’ and ‘Library Fee’ being charged from them.While ‘Facilities Fee’ amounts to Rs. 15,000/- for the 5th year students of batch 2016-2021 and Rs. 16,000/- for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th-year students of batches 2019-2024, 2018-2023, 2017-2022 respectively, the ‘Library Fee’ amounts to Rs. 5,000/.The Students have contended in this context that none of the university facilities were being used since the university was closed down on and from 15.03.2020.Further, they say, the existent Covid-19 threat and the current Academic Schedule raises questions as to when the university gates will be thrown open to us, if not posing clear indications of closure for the better part of the Academic year 2021-2022.Also, they requested pro-rata deduction of the Mess Charges for campus residents and day scholars, Annual Room rent along with additional room rent as per applicability and the Facilities Fee from the previous payment cycle, which was not utilised from 15.03.2020 till the conclusion of our previous semester.Lastly, the postponement of the last date for payment of annual fee i.e. 31.08.2020 has been prayed for.Citing BCI Advisory bearing number BCI:D: 314:2020(LE), dt. 27.07.2020, they have requested that they be given the liberty to pay the revised annual fee in instalments and that an additional month’s time i.e. till 30.09.2020 be given, for acceptance of the payment of reduced /re-considered fee.The matter was heard by the High Court on 18.09.2020. While declining to stay the aforesaid Office Memorandum, the HC granted a weeks’ time to serve the Registrar, CNLU. The matter has been posted for further hearing on September 28.

But there are students that have interests that don’t readily relate to math and so I have to do a lot of research to find ways to do that. But that’s what I love to do.”Bennett graduates in May and plans to return to Bay Minette to teach.Her future plans include teaching on the college level and Troy University would be her college of choice. Sanchia Bennett has a talent for crunching numbers.She has an even greater talent for relating to others, especially children.Bennett is a senior math major at Troy University and, for two-plus years, she has volunteered as a tutor at the Troy Public Library. Next UpHer ability to teach, her love of children and her unselfishness with her time and talents vaulted her above a group of outstanding and dedicated tutors as recipient of the 2008 Troy Public Library Outstanding Tutor of the Year Award.Teresa Colvin, children’s librarian, said Bennett is one of the most dedicated tutors that she has ever had.“She has the ability to relate to children in a special and unique way,” Colvin said. “They fall in love with her and work extremely hard for her. The grades of her ‘children’ soar and even other children are amazed. Parents call the library to ask about her. She is the most requested tutor that I have ever had.” Karen Bullard, TPL assistant director, has observed Bennett at “work” and said she does an excellent job.“Sanchia is a delight to know,” Bullard said. “The way she works with children is amazing. She will make a difference in the world.”Bennett graciously and modestly accepted the award and expressed sincere appreciation for it.“I always try to do my best and I hope that I do,” the Bay Minette native said. “Teaching was not always my first career choice. I thought that I wanted to be an accountant. But, I had a chance to tutor at the university and at the library and just fell in love with teaching.” Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell Latest Storieslast_img read more
