Makes perfect sense for an Episcopalian. Peter Leahy says: July 13, 2012 at 2:21 pm I question the accord and relationship with the Mormon Church. Their teachings across the board are not compatible with Christianity as it has been practiced since the time of Jesus. The second class status of non-whites is particularly appauling and still widely held. The fact they actually practice post death baptisms/conversions alone including those of the holocaust and even family members of Presidents is creepy and they restart them after the controversies die down. They teach the ghosts of our founding fathers have appeared in their temples requesting conversion including departed Episcopalians! They have doctrine that allows them to lie in any discussions with non-members to protect their faith. Secret handshakes and passwords required to enter heaven that only they know but are actually stolen Masonic rituals. The fact they teach that if you pay the tithe, learn the handshakes you can get to be a God of your own planet! What psychological damage does growing up in a church that teaches you that the men will be God if they only obey completely and that the wives and daughters will be separated from them for eternity if they do not subjugate themselves to their God-husband. Despite their attempts to have a squeaky clean image what they teach is not Christianity and engagement gives them legitimacy.

If not, then resolutions at General Convention have little meaning and we are rather more congregational than episcopal. If the Episcopal Church is to have ecclesiastical integrity, then all clergy must play by the rules whether they like them or not. I have to say I’m not optimistic about this. July 13, 2012 at 6:36 pm What Brad Purdom points out is correct. The engagement in dialogue with the Mormons is meant to be interreligious in the same way that we engage in interreligious dialogue with those of the Jewish, Muslim, and Buddhist faiths, among others. The idea is to engage people of faith across many religions for the purposes of friendship, good will, understanding, peace, and reconciliation among all peoples of the world. We coexist on the earth and must learn to share the blessings of the earth with all nations and peoples. Mutual understanding and ongoing conversations have the potential to lead to better cooperation and collaboration in our communities for the common good.

Unless issues of sexuality are THE only issues on which one bases one’s adherence to a particular denomination. Personally, I think the Roman Catholic church is in the process of disintegration and those who seek a refuge there from so-called “revisionist teachings” may find themselves unpleasantly surprised that they have no say whatsoever in the running of their parish, much less their diocese. Personally, I’ll take messy Episcopal Christianity over clean but tightly controlled Roman Catholic Christianity. Rector Pittsburgh, PA By Matthew DaviesPosted Jul 12, 2012 July 19, 2012 at 11:30 pm You know? After reading through the Passed Resolutions synopsis and then all of the comments, I have to just say: What a true image of a family! Many opinions–some seeming to come from a more enlightened place, and some even from a place that, shall we say, may be a little south of the heart of the Gospel message–but all of them from an honest and true place of our personal experience of human coexistence as one giant family. I personally think that the more politically liberal of the resolutions which were passed are wonderful affirmations; but on a much broader and more universal plane, I think that as we as Episcopalians strive to acknowledge and discuss our differences openly and yet join together in unity at the table to be fed as one body from our great God’s heavenly Grace–not condemning or pushing away those who we may disagree with–we do well to make a more intentional gesture to those among us who may, even as ‘open’ a church we may seem, still feel abashed and less-than-worthy to share that banquet with us in the full freedom and expression of personal spirituality and individual discernment of the Holy Spirit within; and who may feel as though they lack the full acknowledgement of the Church itself, that they, too, are crucial members of this Body: To make it obviously clear that although there may be visible room, “This seat is open. Come sit next to me.” How wonderful to know that we belong to a Church, that, even if we may need to be reminded at times, somehow innately knows no matter what our differences may be besides, when we join our voices as one to confess our singular Faith in the Creed and exchange the Peace with a heart free from malice and hate, that we ARE truly one. Thanks be to God for all the tireless efforts of our Bishops and Representatives: May he grant them all a heart of love and service; the wisdom and strength to open them effectively to our world; and the faith and perseverence to present them back to him. Amen. Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Smithfield, NC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Associate Rector Columbus, GA July 16, 2012 at 7:57 pm I gather the longing for Rome that I have been reading is related to Rome’s unenlightened stance on same-sex relationships. Those who think that this will help them will find that Rome, whatever it says, is hurtling at locomotive speed toward loving, Christian, open acceptance of gay folks. Yes, yes I know what they say, but official, public statements are at odds with congregational attitudes and behavior. I predict that Rome is only ten years behind us. As a gay man in a 42 year old relationship, I weep with joy that most Episcopalians are becoming more Christ like daily. I am so proud of my brothers and sisters. I too pray that God has his way with the Church. I also pray for those who disagree with me. In the words of the first priest that I asked about this, “Dan, there have always been gay men and women in the Church. What we are discussing is whether we will say there are.” AMEN. Peace.

Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Dot Cellini says: Rector Knoxville, TN Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Bath, NC Rector Belleville, IL Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Collierville, TN Comments (16) Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA [Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis] General Convention has called on the Episcopal Church to re-imagine its structure, taken historic steps towards full inclusion, endorsed positive investment in the Palestinian Territories, and reaffirmed its commitment to building Anglican Communion relationships while declining to take a position on the Anglican Covenant.Based on the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission, the budget for the Episcopal Church in the 2013-2015 triennium was adopted unanimously by the 77th General Convention July 11.The budget, available here, is balanced at $111,516,032, compared to $111,808,350 for the current triennium, and comes with a small surplus of $30,000.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and outgoing President of the House of Deputies Bonnie Anderson addressed the media at a closing news conference July 12.At this convention, “you have seen the Episcopal Church not only of the future, but of today, in the presence of young adults, a more significant number than we’ve seen in a long time, people of many nations and tribes and language traditions,” said Jefferts Schori, noting that more than 40 international guests attended convention. “The Episcopal Church is healthy, it’s becoming healthier, and it’s poised for an even more significant impact on the world around us. There’s no stopping us. Watch out world. We’re coming.”Anderson, who now steps down as House of Deputies president, said it has been a great convention and that the deputies, 44 percent of whom were new, were extremely well prepared.General Convention, which met July 5-12 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, is composed of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies, which includes clergy and laity.Structural reformOf the almost 400 resolutions submitted to General Convention more than 90 related to structural reform. Most of those resolutions were similar in nature and it was the work of the structure committee at convention to consider the legislation and make its recommendations to the house.Applause and cheers erupted July 11 as Resolution C095, which calls for creation of a task force to re-imagine the workings of the Episcopal Church in the 21st century, sailed unanimously through the House of Bishops. A day earlier, deputies also had passed the resolution unanimously.The legislation creates a special task force of up to 24 people who will gather ideas in the next two years from all levels of the church about possible reforms to its structures, governance and administration. Its work will culminate in a special gathering of people from every diocese to hear what recommendations the task force plans to make to the 78th General Convention. Its final report is due by November 2014.Full story.Bishop Stacy Sauls, chief operating officer for the Episcopal Church, praised the work of both the structure committee and convention.“My hope has always been that we would begin to have a conversation and the church embraced that. The conversation became a movement of hope for the future of the church.”He added that the people of Episcopal Church have realized – and the institutional is getting it – “that we are standing on the brink of an unprecedented moment; have seen it as opportunity rather than threat.”Full story.The spending portion of the budget for the next triennium is allocated according to the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission, and the categories of administration and governance. The five marks are:To proclaim the Good News of the KingdomTo teach, baptize and nurture new believersTo respond to human need by loving serviceTo seek to transform unjust structures of societyTo strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earthThe budget assumes $73.5 million in commitments from the church’s dioceses, nearly $4 million less than that in the current triennium. That total is based on keeping at 19 percent the amount that the church asks dioceses to contribute annually to the church-wide budget.Same-gender blessingsIn a historic move, convention authorized provisional use of a rite for blessing same-gender unions. “The Witnessing and Blessing of a Lifelong Covenant” rite will be available for use starting Dec. 2 (the first Sunday of Advent), but clergy will need the permission of their bishop under the terms of the resolution.The resolution calls on the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music “to conduct a review process over the next triennium, making clear that this is a work in progress,” the Rev. Ruth Meyers, deputy of the Diocese of Chicago, told the deputies. She chaired the convention Prayer Book, Liturgy and Church Music Committee’s subcommittee on blessings and the SCLM.The resolution directs the SCLM to include “diverse theological perspectives in the further development of the theological resource” and to invite responses from throughout the church as well as from the Anglican Communion and the church’s ecumenical partners.The resolution states that, under existing canons, clergy can decline to preside at a blessing liturgy and says that no one “should be coerced or penalized in any manner, nor suffer any canonical disabilities” for objecting to or supporting the 77th General Convention’s action on blessings.Full story.Gender identity, expressionTwo resolutions passed by convention offer support for the transgender community by adding gender expression and identity to two canons that prevent discrimination. One makes clear that the ordination discernment process is open to them, and another guarantees their equal place in the life, worship and governance of the church.Full story.Following action on same-gender blessings and transgender rights, the majority of the Diocese of South Carolina’s deputies left the General Convention July 11 because, in the words of its remaining clergy deputy, the gathering had passed resolutions that violate the doctrine, discipline and worship of the Episcopal Church.However, that deputy, the Very Rev. John B. Burwell, told Episcopal News Service, “We are not leaving the Episcopal Church.”Positive investmentConvention overwhelmingly supported a resolution on positive investment in the Palestinian Territories. But the bishops agreed to postpone indefinitely a conversation on corporate engagement.Resolution B019 affirms positive investment “as a necessary means to create a sound economy and a sustainable infrastructure” in the Palestinian Territories. It also calls on the church to support “the Jewish, Muslim, and Christian study on peace with justice in the Middle East,” and produce an annotated bibliography of resources.Resolution C060, which called on the church to engage “in corporate social responsibility by more vigorous and public corporate engagement with companies in the church’s investment portfolio that contribute to the infrastructure of the Occupation,” was tabled after Bishop Sean Rowe of Northwestern Pennsylvania called for the conversation to be postponed indefinitely. The deputies had passed that resolution on July 9, but it would have required the bishops’ consent.Full story.Anglican Covenant, Continuing IndabaConvention also affirmed its commitment to building relationships across the Anglican Communion, especially through the Continuing Indaba program, and to decline to take a position on the Anglican Covenant.After considering eight resolutions, the General Convention’s committee on world mission recommended adoption of two resolutions on Anglican Communion relationships and the Anglican Covenant, a document that initially had been intended as a way to bind Anglicans globally across cultural and theological differences.Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas, chair of the World Mission Committee, told ENS following the vote that the resolutions are “a genuine pastoral response because we are not of one mind, and to push a decision at this time would cause hurt and alienation in our church on both sides and instead we chose to stay in the conversation.”Full story.The Rev. Gay Jennings of Ohio was elected to serve as the next president of the House of Deputies and Byron Rushing of Massachusetts as the next vice president. Each will serve a three-year term beginning at the end of General Convention.Other legislation that convention passed includes:SudanResolution A019, re-affirming advocacy support for peace in Sudan. (Full story)Release of Cuban prisonersResolution A021 (http://www.generalconvention.org/gc/resolutions?by=number&id=a021), calling for the release of all in Cuban prisons for religious activities or peaceful advocacy of political change in the Republic of Cuba; and to support advocacy efforts for the humane treatment and pastoral care of four Cuban nationals convicted of spying for the government of the Republic of Cuba, who are serving prison sentences in United States.EcumenismResolution A036, which commends the 11-year relationship of full communion with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and asks the Lutheran-Episcopal Coordinating Committee to address areas where Episcopal and Lutheran practices differ, especially around the matter of who can preside at Holy Communion and the role of deacons.Studying marriageResolution A050, authorizing a task force to study marriage. It calls for creation of a 12-member task force to study marriage, including needs for pastoral responses by clergy for same-sex couples in states where civil marriage is legal, as well as issues “raised by changing societal and cultural norms and legal structures.”Prayer BookResolution A059, revising the Holy Week readings in the Prayer Book to correspond with those in the Revised Common Lectionary;Poverty and justiceResolution A135, a compilation of several other resolutions that responds to issues of poverty and injustice. It commits the church over the next three years to “teaching, preaching, organizing, advocating, and building mutually transformative relationships with those who are poor to focus our hearts and the mission of our congregations and dioceses on reducing poverty and increasing economic and racial justice.” It also calls for every meeting that takes place in the church to include time for prayer and reflection “on how our work engages issues of poverty and economic and racial justice networks” in order to “cultivate mindfulness about poverty in our communities and world.” Full story.Monitoring women, other underrepresented groupsResolution A144, requiring the tracking of the ratio of women to men in bishop election processes, along with racial and ethnic minorities, and encouraging dioceses to strive for greater diversity in candidates.Support for Gaza hospitalResolution B017, calling on the church to support the Diocese of Jerusalem’s Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza with fundraising and advocacy after the United Nations Relief and Works Agency cut its financial aid, slashing the hospital’s budget nearly in half.Reconciliation or dissolution of an Episcopal relationshipResolution B021, which amends the canons to provide a mechanism for addressing disagreement in the pastoral relationship between a diocese and its bishop.Denominational Health PlanResolution B026, to give dioceses and parishes an additional three years to meet the requirement that they provide parity in health insurance cost-sharing between lay and clergy employees. That deadline now is extended until Dec. 31, 2015. Dioceses and parishes still must offer health insurance to employees through the Church Medical Trust by the end of 2012. It also calls the Medical Trust to continue to explore “more equitable sharing of health care premium costs.”Access to Holy Baptism, Holy CommunionResolution C029, affirming the Episcopal Church’s teaching that Baptism is the norm for those who wish to receive Holy Communion.Relocating Episcopal Church CenterResolution D016, to approve a move away from, but did not authorize the sale of, the Episcopal Church Center headquarters at 815 Second Avenue in New York. (Full story)Establish development officeResolution D025, establishing a Development Office for the Episcopal Church to solicit major gifts and other resources.Pilot Student Loan ProgramResolution D049, which calls for creating a pilot student loan fund for seminarians who agree to exercise three years of ministry in under-served areas of the Episcopal Church.Dialogue with Mormon ChurchResolution D081, directing the Standing Commission on Ecumenical and Interreligious Relations to initiate dialogue between the Episcopal Church and the Mormon Church “for the interreligious purposes of friendship, goodwill, mutual understanding” and in anticipation of the 78th General Convention to be held in Salt Lake City in 2015.For a full list of resolutions acted on at the 77th General Convention, click here.— Matthew Davies is editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

For TCU students, pathway largely paved for landing internships, jobs

For TCU students, pathway largely paved for landing internships, jobs

first_imgFacebook Equestrian upsets No. 1 Baylor, swept by Texas A&M at NCEA Championships Dean Strakahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/dean-straka/ ReddIt Facebook Dean Straka is a senior journalism major from Lake Forest, California. He currently serves as Sports Line Editor for TCU 360. His passions include golf, God, traveling, and sitting down to watch the big game of the day. Follow him on Twitter at @dwstraka49 Twitter + posts Twitter Equestrian defeated in Big 12 Championship Dean Straka printThe spring semester of 2016 at Texas Christian University will conclude in fewer than three weeks, and students of all classes are finalizing their plans for the summer months ahead.Sophomore marketing major Olivia Hartjen will travel to Ethiopia for two weeks as part of an internship with the Adera Foundation, a North Texas based Christian non-profit organization aimed at improving peoples’ lives around the world.Hartjen discovered the internship opportunity at the TCU Career and Intern Expo, an event hosted in February at the University Recreation Center in which businesses from varying fields showcased potential employment opportunities for university students.“It was easier to find an internship than it probably should have been,” Hartjen said. “I wasn’t expecting to find anything that necessarily fit my unique desire to do ministry non-profit with business, but I found it, interviewed with them, and now I’m getting to do it.”Hartjen’s surprisingly simple road to finding an internship that suited her skills and passions was not a matter of sheer luck.In an age where so many college students, including Hartjen, have expressed how daunting it can seemingly be to land an internship or post-graduate job, the task is not as difficult as it may appear, at least for TCU students. The university has invested in countless efforts to ensure that students have a well-paved path to successfully finding and landing employment when the occasion calls for it.The most prominent resource that the university boasts in preparing students for the work-force is the Center for Career and Professional Development, as sector of the university’s student affairs department.John Thompson, the executive director of the center, said that a core function of the center is to assist students in developing a plan that will successfully allow them to achieve their career goals.“We help you set up a path,” Thompson said. “We recommend to you all how to do resumes, cover letters, how to search for jobs; all the things that are fundamental for career success.”Thompson said the process is fined tuned right down each student’s area of study, with the center providing a sample resume for every major at the university“It’s really important that we provide this service,” Thompson said. “Each college has a consultant that can review your resume and cover letter, and tell you what your materials ought to look like.”The assistance doesn’t stop with resume and cover letter guidance. Thompson added that the center provides mock interviews for students, complete with video recordings so students can evaluate their performance before the real deal comes along.“If you are not really comfortable with interviews, we will catch you doing little tendencies that you probably aren’t even aware of so things will go smoothly when it actually counts,” Thompson said. “If you go in there and make a good impression in a real interview, you will probably get an opportunity.”It’s not just the center that is being proactive in prepping students for internships and post-college employment though. Hartjen, a member of the Neeley Fellows program in the Neeley School of Business, said the business school itself provides exceptional career assistance for the fellows.“It’s cool because the (Neeley) school will actually forward your resume to companies based on what you want to do, so you will get reached out to by employers that you didn’t even necessarily seek yourself. Neeley works so hard to build really great relationships with different companies in and out of the area,” Hartjen said.Fellows members even had the opportunity to travel to New York City over spring break in March to visit companies that may be of interest to them.“A lot of the companies we visited had past fellows and just maintained really good relationships with the Neeley School,” Hartjen said. “We got to speak with Mark Bezos, the brother of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, which was kind of nuts. He runs a non-profit and told us about different opportunities there to use marketing with or without non-profit, so that was probably the highlight for me.”The extensive efforts that the such programs make to support students are not without reasonable cause. Thompson said he believes that work experience is just as valuable, if not more valuable, than education when it comes to achieving a successful career.“The most important thing that a student can do outside of academics is internships,” Thompson said. “It used to be all about GPA, but nowadays full-time employers want experience. That’s why we try to generate as many opportunities for internships as we can. We bring employers to campus to meet students and in a good year we have over 5,000 postings on our job board.”That, however, is not to say that TCU students don’t have to put in their fair share of effort in the internship and job hunt. The job market remains competitive for college students as companies increasingly recruit within the demographic.Valerie Thannisch, the executive director of selection at financial planning organization Northwestern Mutual’s Fort Worth office, whch actively recruits among TCU students, said the office receives an exponential amount of job and intern applications each year compared to the number of individuals they can bring on.“Our location will get about 1,000 applicants for internships and another 1,000 applicants for full-time jobs each year, and from those pools we will take about 20 people,” Thannisch said. “We typically have to make it a three to four interview process to weed out applicants and find the best suited ones.”The element of competitiveness differs for each field of study too, as not all students have the same networking opportunities within their particular school such as those in the Neeley Fellows program have.Ryan DeTamble, a sophomore political science major, said he had a difficult time finding any employers geared towards political science at the Career and Intern Expo hosted by the university earlier in the semester, which he said is reflective of the current political job market.“Political science is a very tough field to get into immediately because there are a lot of political science majors out there and only so many positions out there,” DeTamble said.“A lot of times the internships at places such a congressional office are unpaid, which might turn some people off, but they’re still highly sought after positions.”DeTamble said he has yet to secure an internship for this summer.DeTamble added that seemingly increased competitiveness in the workforce may also be the result of students pursuing internships at younger ages, something he has seen among his sophomore counterparts in recent months.“Even though internships and jobs are something that people might historically tend to associate with junior and senior year, I’m only a sophomore and a lot of my sophomore friends are taking interest in the work-field and applying for internships,” DeTamble said. “Internships are a very important part of career planning.”DeTamble said he believes that sophomore standing may also play out to be a disadvantage in seeking internships in comparison to being an upperclassman.“I would like to work for a ‘think tank’ type of organization, but often times they will put junior or senior standing if not graduate-student standing as their criteria for hiring,” DeTamble said. “I think it can definitely be a challenge for people in my shoes.”Competitiveness and high demand however isn’t the sole explanation for a student not landing an employment opportunity. Thompson said he believes that many TCU students who struggle to find employment are simply shooting themselves in the foot.“Not nearly as many people are taking advantage of the resources we provide as we hope – maybe only about 50 percent of the students who are seeking a job or internship do so,” Thompson said. “Lots of the people who aren’t getting internships are trying to do it all on their own. They are either looking in the wrong places or they don’t even know where to begin to look.”A strong objective is critical to success as the workforce becomes increasingly competitive. Thannisch said a key component of Northwestern Mutual’s hiring process is recognizing applicants who have a clear vision of what they want and how to achieve those goals.“We look for applicants that are go getters,” Thannisch said. “We want students who are well connected in the area since they are essentially building their own business with their own client base. We may even seek out people and introduce ourselves to them if we believe they are the right fit.”Beyond competitiveness though, there are even simpler factors that can be hindering to the students’ success in becoming employed. Thompson said that interviews can often be the end of the road for some students if they are not adequately prepared.“An interview is basically over in ten seconds, and if the employer doesn’t like you, you can talk for an hour and they won’t hear anything,” Thompson said. “We see a lot of people do things during our mock interview recordings that are not good. Their answers ramble on, they aren’t always distinct in their answers and a lot of them have bad body language.”Thannisch attested to the fact that she frequently encounters Northwestern Mutual applicants making critical mistakes during interviews that she conducts.“Professionalism can be very hard to learn outside of experience,” Thannisch said. “A lot of people we have turned away after the interviews have simply lacked confidence or have told us things about them that are not good to know such as partying. I even had one girl told me once that if she was chosen, she wanted to just sit around the office and not do much work.”Whether or not students find themselves in such a position may come down to a matter of dedication and maturity on their part. Thompson stressed the importance of using the resources that the university provides to bypass such detrimental and easily avoidable gaffes.“We’re here to help you make assessments for who you want to work for and how to go about doing so,” Thompson said. “I want you to find something that will fit your major. I want you to go get an internship that will allow you to find out whether or not what you are learning in the class is right or wrong.”At TCU, students have what they need to succeed. All they can do is take full advantage of the opportunity, and let the cards fall.Think you learned some valuable career tips from this article? Take the quiz here to find out.

Calm Conditions for Housing in Q3?

Calm Conditions for Housing in Q3?

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post According to Bankrate, homebuyers were “sailing calm waters” with lower rates and slowing home price appreciation.“Our view is that the housing market peaked in 2017, we saw about a 3% drop in sales in 2018. The pace of home price increases started to slow in 2018,” says Doug Duncan, Chief Economist at Fannie Mae. “Starting at the beginning of 2019 rates started to come down, then we saw this big drop in rates. We didn’t expect such a significant drop-off—it was 30 points more than we forecasted.”According to the latest Existing Home Sales report by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) notes that single-family home transactions increased 1.3% from July to August, and home sales passed last year’s number by 2.6%. Sales prices jumped 4.7% in August year-over-year, moving the median existing home price to $278,200 from last August’s $265,600, the NAR report shows.“The housing market is sitting well,” says Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic. “We are sub-4% on mortgage rates and sub-4% on unemployment. This is the first time since World War II era that we have both metrics (under 4 percent). Incomes are rising faster than inflation. This is the reason we’re seeing home sales up.”Despite the positive increases, housing supply remains the weak spot of the market as inventory fell to 1.86 million units in August, down 2.6% from the same time last year.“On the for-sale side, inventory remains low and the homes that are being started are priced above what many homebuyers are prepared to pay, so there’s an affordability problem,” says Michael Neal, a senior research associate in the Housing Finance Policy Center at the Urban Institute.Bankrate also looked at refinance activity, noting that between September 11 and 25, the number of refinances dropped by 17%, according to data from the Mortgage Bankers Association.“I think it’s overall a positive for consumers to buy houses and refinance at these lower rates,” says Marc Doss, Regional Chief Investment Officer at Wells Fargo. “But there are people who are trying to perfectly time rates, which is impossible. People have the chance to float down now. Don’t wait too long. Don’t try to get too cute.” Share Save Home / Daily Dose / Calm Conditions for Housing in Q3?

Justice R Devdas while issuing the notice, recorded the submission made by the government advocate that as of now the State Government, Director of Medical Education/The Commissioner of Health and Family Welfare Department has not called for any counselling in respect of the allotment of Primary Health Centres/ Government Hospital for Compulsory Rural Service. The Marks Cards of the students can be directed to be issued, the government advocate said. The Court directed the State to pass necessary orders in that regard The petition filed by Dr. Sharanya Mohan and 43 others through advocate Manik BT of Thiru and Thiru Chambers has challenged the validity of the notification dated 15.02.2021, issued by the Directorate of Medical Education, directing colleges to withhold all original documents of students who have completed their medical courses. Further the petition also seeks the quashing of Rule 11 of the Karnataka Selection of Candidates for Admission to Government Seats in Professional Educational Rules 2006, in so far as it relates to candidates admitted to the MBBS course executing bonds as it is ultra vires to the Karnataka Professional Education Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Determination of Fees) Act 2006 as well as National Medical Commission Act 2019. It also seeks to quash Rule 12 of the Karnataka Compulsory Service Training by Candidates Completed Medical Courses (Counselling, Allotment and Certification ) Rules 2015, dated 24-7- 2015 in so far as it relates to issuance of completion certificate to candidates who have successfully completed rural service as not only ultra vires to the Karnataka Professional Education Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Determination of Fees) Act 2006 but ultra vires the University Grants Commission Act 1956 and National Medical Commission Act 2019 .Compulsory Service Not Applicable To PG Medical Students Admitted Before 2018-19 : Karnataka High Court In 2019, the High Court has upheld the constitutional validity of Karnataka Compulsory Service Training by Candidates Completed Medical Courses Act, 2012 and Rules of 2015, which mandates all students who have enrolled for Graduation, The fresh plea states that in light of the National Medical Commission (NMC) Act 2019, coming into force there is a paradigm shift that took place in medical education. Under the NMC Act, States have lost their right in regulating medical college admissions through policymaking and legislation. By this law, only the Central Government through the NMC Act has the power to regulate medical courses. However, the State Government’s powers regarding maintaining reservations within the State quota have not been interfered with. The plea states that notification issued by the DME stems out of the Compulsory Act which has become a non-est law in light of the NMC Act and by the upholding of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) by the Constitution Bench of the Hon’ble Apex Court. Further, it is said that many states in India do not have a compulsory rural service program. In such a case, the candidates from those states have a distinct advantage over Karnataka students; thus, there is no equality and there is a violation of fundamental rights. It is also claimed that the state government has collected bonds from students as per Rule 11 of the Karnataka Selection of Candidates for Admission to Government Seats in Professional Educational Rules 2006. The said Rule is ultra vires the Karnataka Professional Education Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Determination of Fees) Act 2006 as well as the Karnataka Educational Institutions Prohibition of Capitation Fee Act 1984 Act and the impounding of the documents of the Petitioners by Directorate of Medical Education, is illegal.

‘We shouldn’t be the “stars” of the school-­shooting generation’: Inside Parkland shooting survivors David and Lauren Hogg’s new book

‘We shouldn’t be the “stars” of the school-­shooting generation’: Inside Parkland shooting survivors David and Lauren Hogg’s new book

first_imgJoe Raedle/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Teen activist David Hogg and his younger sister Lauren Hogg rose to national fame in the aftermath of the Valentine’s Day massacre at their high school in Parkland, Florida. The two survived when a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, killing 17 people with an AR-15-style weapon.In the wake of the tragedy, the siblings, along with their classmates and friends, launched the March for our Lives and #NeverAgain movements to fight for gun reform so others wouldn’t suffer the way their community did.The brother and sister duo is out with a new book, “#NeverAgain: A New Generation Draws the Line,” that goes inside the making of the #NeverAgain movement. The teens said they are donating proceeds from the book to charity and local community organizations.Below is an excerpt from the new book, which debuts today.Excerpt from “#NeverAgain: A New Generation Draws the Line”Before February 14, we thought we had plenty of time. We wanted to do something that would make the world a better place, to fight for justice as lawyers or activists or crusading journalists, to be responsible citizens and raise good-­hearted children. But first we had to finish high school.After February 14, we knew how fast time could stop.We learned so much at Marjory Stoneman Douglas. We studied Supreme Court decisions, read Shakespeare, and explored the mysteries of black holes. We spent a huge amount of time on contemporary issues like poverty and the environment. In our psychology classes, we talked about death and grief and mental illness. We debated gun control and the NRA. We spent a whole week studying school shootings. But it all seemed a little bit distant, a little bit like a dream. Either it happened before we were born, or it was happening somewhere else.When it happened to us, we woke up. We knew we couldn’t wait until we got out of college and settled into jobs. We had to make the world a better place now. It was literally a matter of life and death.So we stood up and tried to make our voices heard. We’re really proud of what we have accomplished so far, and are so grateful to all the people who have joined our cause. They gave us strength. They gave us hope. You give us hope.But let’s face it — ­it’s not enough. And the merchants of chaos keep peddling their wares.Sixteen days after we woke up, a man in Detroit who had just gotten out of a hospital where he was being treated for hallucinations shot and killed his daughter, her mother, his cousin, and two people who just happened to be there. Anyone who knows about history knows that the founders did not intend for anyone with an illness or a grievance to be able to take out their rage on the world with weapons that they could not have begun to imagine. This is madness.It’s almost summer now, and the death count continues to rise in America. Without a radical change in America’s priorities and in our gun laws, our protests will have been in vain. Power and cynicism don’t give way easily. But we have no intention of stopping.After you spend a few hours hiding in a classroom while your friends and teachers are slaughtered, you can’t stop thinking about how insane this is and how to change it. Volunteer in political campaigns? Try to fix the mental health system? Fight the gun lobbyists? Push for comprehensive background checks?We think you should. We hope you do. There is a whole world to change.You probably don’t know who Tyra Hemans is. She was at Parkland that day and she had friends die. She was with us in Tallahassee when we asked our state legislators to do something. She was with us at the march on Washington. She’s a great speaker and a loving person. But we got famous and she didn’t.What about Zion Kelly? In September 2017, Zion’s twin brother, Zaire, was murdered in Northeast Washington, D.C., by a kid with a gun. Zaire — ­a standout student and athlete at Thurgood Marshall Academy — ­was just sixteen years old. To honor his brother’s memory and find meaning in his loss, Zion, who is as shy as Zaire was outgoing, has nonetheless made it his mission to stand up, speak out, and change the world. We were honored that he joined us on stage in Washington. But we got famous, and he didn’t.Or what about the protests at Liberty City in Miami? Four kids were shot there in April, and two of them died. One of them was about to get inducted into the National Honor Society. Hundreds of students turned out to protest. Only one newspaper went to cover the protest, only one reporter actually bothered to interview them. The TV coverage was shot from a helicopter, and made the Liberty City protest look like a riot. We got headlines, they didn’t.Those kids tried to make their voices heard just like we did. They lived through the exact same thing we lived through. But they don’t live in a gated community. They are from a lower socioeconomic status and they are a different color. Instead of riding their bikes to school listening to NPR on their iPhones without even thinking someone might shoot them, they had to worry about it every day. In raw statistics, their odds of getting shot are twice as high as ours, and a lot of American kids just like them live in places where they have a higher death rate than soldiers in Afghanistan.We’re super glad people are listening to us, but we’re not the story. We shouldn’t be the “stars” of the school-­shooting generation, which is a horrifying thought on so many levels. If people only listen when privileged white kids get killed -— ­and even then, only when the number of dead kids is high enough to make the news -— ­we’re never going to fix this problem.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
