Foto de Chloe Nguyen /Diócesis de Utah.[Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City] Los tambores taiko de la iglesia japonesa de Cristo [Japanese Church of Christ] en Salt Lake City abrieron el espectáculo La Vitrina de Utah (Utah Showcase) para un atronador comienzo con un resonante número de apertura que representaba a un dragón que le deseaba a los escuchas larga vida y buena salud.La noche llegó a un final igualmente espectacular con la actuación del American Festival Chorus and Orchestra de 220 voces, cuyo programa de himnos incluyó una de las famosas composiciones de la era de la frontera del autor mormón William Clayton: “Venid, venid, oh santos” [Come, Come, Ye Saints].En el ínterin, hubo actuaciones del Coro Inspiracional Bautista Calvario [Calvary Baptist Inspirational Choir]; de los Lux Singers, un grupo religioso de la iglesia episcopal de Santa María [St. Mary’s Episcopal Church] en Provo y de El Coro Hispano, un coro de la catedral catolicorromana de la Magdalena [Madeleine] que canta música religiosa tradicional de México y Centro y Sudamérica.El Ballet Folclórico Citlali escenificó danzas folclóricas de México. Foto de Chloe Nguyen/Diócesis de Utah. Nguyen/Diocese of UtahEl Ballet Folclórico Citlali escenificó varias danzas folclóricas mexicanas. Los hombres, vestidos de blanco de pies a cabeza, realizaron varios complicados pasos de chaqué, mientras las mujeres, en elegantes vestidos con volantes, giraban en un caleidoscopio de color en torno a ellos.Luego vino la familia pow wow, cuyos miembros representan las tribus ute, navajo, shoshoni norte y hopi, que realizaron una serie de danzas tradicionales acompañados por un círculo de tambores.Con los elaborados trajes que usan en las contemporáneas competencias de pow wow, mujeres y hombres danzaron en los estilos de las planicies del sur y de los lakotas del norte, una danza de cascabeles ojibwe, una danza de la hierba omaha y una danza del ave de la pradera de la tribu de los pies negros, entre otras. La puesta culminó en una rápida pieza de gran maestría derivada del show del Salvaje Oeste de Buffalo Bill, con un bailarín solo que improvisaba al sonido de los tambores.Existen al presente 566 tribus nativoamericanas reconocidas por el gobierno federal, le dijo al público el líder de la familia pow wow. “Aún estamos aquí”, afirmó, mientras el grupo abandonaba la escena en medio de una ovación.Un bailarín de la familia de pow wow hace una demostración de una danza estilo lakota norte. Foto de Chloe Nguyen/Diócesis de Utah.“Además de la diversidad religiosa que los visitantes a veces pueden encontrar sorprendente, nosotros aquí en Utah tenemos un sólida herencia de diversidad étnica y cultural que anima y fortalece a nuestra comunidad”, dijo Scott Hayashi, obispo de la Diócesis de Utah, al comienzo del programa. “Esta noche estamos mostrando esa rica herencia”.La Diócesis de Utah organizó el programa de casi dos horas de duración para los asistentes a la Convención General. Muchos de ellos salieron apresuradamente de una retrasada sesión legislativa para estar allí.El acto tuvo lugar en el Tabernáculo de Salt Lake, en la Plaza del Templo, monumento histórico y sede del afamado Coro del Tabernáculo Mormón. La imponente estructura dorada del órgano del Tabernáculo, de 11.623 tubos, constituyó un impresionante fondo visual para los intérpretes, todos los cuales donaron su tiempo y talento para la velada.Elder L. Whitney Clayton, en representación de la Presidencia de los Setenta, uno de los principales organismos gubernativos de la Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Últimos Días, le dijo al público que el Tabernáculo, construido entre 1864 y 1867 y conocido por su acústica capaz de registrar la caída de un alfiler, tiene forma de arco porque fue diseñado por un constructor de puentes.“No contaban con muchas de las cosas que usaríamos hoy para construir un edificio como éste, pero les sobraba madera, tenían cuero sin curtir y tenían iniciativa, y esa tres cosas juntas hicieron un edificio bastante bueno”, dijo Clayton.El obispo de Utah, Scott Hayashi, da la bienvenida a los convencionistas a La Vitrina de Utah. Foto de Chloe Nguyen/Diocese of Utah.“Creo que lo más importante de toda la estructura es que cuando los pioneros mormones llegaron aquí, venían en carretas, algunos de ellos a caballo, pero muchos de ellos a pie. Cuando llegaron aquí comenzaron de cero y levantaron esta maravillosa ciudad en la cual vivimos y que es el hogar de tantos de nosotros”, dijo Clayton.Clayton expresó profunda gratitud por el liderazgo de Hayashi. “Quiero mencionarlo de manera muy personal, por su amistad, por su cordialidad, por su voz de integración y de aceptación de los puntos de vistas e ideas de otras personas. Su voz ha sido decisiva para muchas cosas buenas que han sucedido en este lugar y en este estado”, añadió Clayton.“Creemos que somos hijos de Dios, que somos verdaderamente una familia. Como hermanos y hermanas en esa familia cada uno de nosotros tiene una oportunidad maravillosa —en verdad, diríamos que un deber divino— de tratarnos los unos a los otros con bondad y respeto al tiempo que adoramos al Señor y seguimos sus enseñanzas según los dictados de nuestra propia conciencia y de nuestra propia tradición”, dijo Clayton. “Oramos que la bendición de Dios sea con ustedes a través de vuestra convención”.El American Festival Chorus and Orchestra cerró el programa con “El Señor te bendiga y te guarde” [“The Lord Bless You and Keep You”].A uno de los presentes se le oyó decir mientras se encaminaba hacia la puerta: “si no te sientes bien después de esto, algo te pasa”.— Tracy J.

NHÀ TẰM is one of the residential house projects being redesigned for improvements by Landmak Architecture company. The house is located in the high class Ciputra Hanoi urban area, with the original premises being constructed in bulk approximately 15 years ago. This house model has become out-of-date and obsolete nowadays, whereas the initial ventilation and lighting did not satisfy the utilizing demands for room functions. The house owners have implemented improvement, modification, renovation, decoration, etc., for many times but the house malfunctions have not been thoroughly resolved. Therefore they came to us in 2016 with the determination to bring a “makeover” to the house.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Trieu ChienThe functions are extremely important and must be well dealth with, while factors such as Nature, Greeneries, Ventilation, Lighting must be prioritized during design researching. With that actual state, we decided to intervene in the house structure. A lot of partition walls were destroyed, pillars and beams were  cut and reinforced at critical positions in order to generate continuities, connectivities for various functions of the house. A part of the original garage roof was taken away so as to create a vertical garden along the wall and a dry garden atop the floor surface. This solution helps us readjust the traffic approaching the house’s main hall, cut some more roof for the stair lighting, heighten the back roof so as to make activity rooms (worship room, laundry room, children recreation room) as much convenient and exciting as possible.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienSave this picture!© Trieu ChienAfter nearly 2 years of construction, the house has finally been finished, satisfying initial expectations. Even the factors of greeneries, ventilation, lighting, water surface have managed to bring forth surprising vibes. Greeneries have become available everywhere; natural light, wind, and rain may go inside the house. Borders between Outdoor-Indoor, Above-Below have almost been cleaned out, etc. Wooden raw materials and fine details of Wood and Steel have been cut using the CNC techology so as to bring about special impressions on particular positions, thus, the house space has become very modern and comfortable while preserving the traditional essence of Vietnamese culture.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienProject gallerySee allShow lessKaohsiung American School Athletic Complex / MAYU architects+Selected ProjectsGenesis Skycellar / Superimpose ArchitectureSelected Projects Share “COPY” NHÀ TẰM / Landmak Architecture CopyAbout this officeLandmak ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationTừ LiêmVietnamPublished on March 08, 2018Cite: “NHÀ TẰM / Landmak Architecture” 07 Mar 2018.

The deputy said he has secured a commitment from the government to reconsider the tax and its implications for Shannon Airport. “This is a very serious issue for Limerick and the Mid-West.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Email Advertisement Facebook Print Twitter “I have consistently called for this destructive and short-sighted tax to be removed, and I repeated this call to Minister for Finance Brian Lenihan and Mary Hanafin, Minister for Tourism, Culture & Sport in the Dail during this debate,” said the deputy.He added jobs, not taxes, were needed and that Shannon Airport needs to be in as competitive a position as possible.“This year alone, Shannon will see a reduction in its passenger numbers of almost 30% or 800,000 passengers to just two million.“The airport board announced that they have set a target of 2.5 million passengers by 2015.  Removal of the travel tax will greatly assist in meeting this target”.In reply, Minister Lenihan said the issue would be considered in the context of the forthcoming budget.  “The penny seems to be finally dropping with the minister that we must make it as attractive as possible for people to visit here.  That means keeping the cost of getting to and from Shannon as low as possible,” continued O’Donnell.  “In that context, the commitment to reconsider the tax is potentially very significant for Limerick and the Mid-West”.

Hares on the March. December 2015Jack and Jill Foundation. Hares on the March.LIMERICK artists have moved to the wild side to produce a hare raising exhibition in aid of a national childrens’ charity.The Jack and Jill Foundation will benefit from the “Hares on the March” exhibition which will run at more than 50 locations in Dublin over the next two months for people to find, enjoy and possibly purchase via auction.   Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up ‘The White Hare of Creggan’ by Clare Hartigan from Castleconnell; ‘Shinare’ by John Shinnors from Roxborough and ‘Harris the Hare’ by Jane Murtagh from Cratloe and the students of Villiers School Limerick are among the 110 artistic hares that make up the exhibition.The Jack and Jill Foundation is inviting people to visit Dublin, especially over the midterm break, to find and consider buying one of these mystical hares, with a map for the Hare Trail available at any of the locations displaying the work, including Arnotts, Easons, St. Stephen’s Green Centre and The Chester Beatty Library at Dublin Castle.Since 1997, the Foundation has supported almost 2,000 children – 93 of them from Limerick – from birth to four years old with brain damage, severe intellectual and physical trauma.Creator of “The White Hare of Creggan”, Clare Hartigan said that as she normally paints on a white background, she started off thinking about a white hare and ‘Alice in Wonderland’ came to my mind immediately. In Ireland, of course, the white rabbit would be a hare. I then started to wonder was there a magical white hare in Ireland and then I came across the “White Hare of Creggan”, a creature that was seen only in flashes and that nobody could ever catch.  The inspiration for Jane Murtagh and the students of Villiers School’s “Harris the Hare” came from Assyrian bas relief sculpture and Islamic art.  On his route to those exotic locations, Harris discovered Thomas Harriot’s  phonetic alphabet which he used for his signature on his finished portraits.The Jack and Jill Foundation is hoping that funds raised from “Hares on the March” will make a a major contribution to the €2.7 million it needs in 2016 to provide home nursing care to sick children nationwide, with every €16 raised funding one hour of home nursing care.Some of the other big name artists involved in “Hares on the March” are Pauline Bewick, Peter Curling, John Doherty, Martin Gale, Graham Knuttel and Donald Teskey, with a full list of artists and their hares and the latest auction bids on www.jackandjill.ie.last_img read more

Fed Survey Finds Increased Optimism for Future Financial Prospects

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media. He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Individuals’ optimism regarding future financial prospects increased substantially from 2013 to 2014, while perceptions of current financial well-being improved only modestly, according to a survey conducted by the Federal Reserve released Wednesday.The Fed’s 2014 Survey of Household Economics and Decisionmaking, which was completed by about 5,800 individuals last fall to provide insight into various aspects of Americans’ personal finances such as economic security, banking, credit access and usage, housing, household debt (including education and student loan debt), savings, and preparedness for retirement.The survey found that 65 percent of adult respondents said they were either “doing okay” or “living comfortably” as far as their personal finance situation, which represented an increase of 3 percentage points from the survey the previous year. Meanwhile, the percentage of respondents who said they expect their income to be higher in the next year jumped from 21 percent in 2013 to 29 percent in the 2014 survey.”In general, the majority of the population is continuing to recover from the financial crisis and the effects it had on their personal finances and financial well-being,” the Fed wrote in the report.Despite the reasons for optimism, however, the Fed said the survey’s findings “highlight that economic challenges remain for a significant portion of the population.” The survey indicated that many Americans are not prepared for economic emergencies or for the future. Just more than half of survey respondents, 53 percent, said they would be able to cover an emergency expense costing $400 without borrowing money or selling something. Nearly one-third of respondents said they have done without some type of medical care they needed in the last year because they could not afford it. Also, 49 percent of part-time workers surveyed and 36 percent of all workers surveyed said they prefer to work more hours at the same rate of pay if they could.Further indicating a lack of financial preparedness, the survey found that 31 percent of non-retirees (almost a quarter of them over age 45) had no retirement savings or pension. Less than half of adults who said they were saving for retirement said they were “mostly” or “very” confident they could make the right investment decisions to manage the money they saved. Thirty-eight percent of respondents who were not retired said they had no plans to retire, and among households with an income of less than $40,000 per year, 55 percent of respondents said they have no plans to retire or plan to keep working as long as possible.Homeowners generally remained positive in their attitudes toward housing; 43 percent of respondents said they believe the value of their house increased in the last year, while 39 percent said they expect home values to rise in their neighborhood in the coming year. Many of the respondents who rent said they wanted to buy a home but could not due to financial barriers; about half said the inability to afford a down payment was the biggest barrier to homeownership, while about 31 percent said the inability to qualify for a mortgage was their main reason for renting.Also according to the survey, 23 percent of adult respondents said they had some form of education debt, though it was not exclusively student loan debt; 14 percent of those with education debt said that some of the debt was on credit cards.For complete survey results, click here. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News May 27, 2015 1,032 Views Fed Survey Finds Increased Optimism for Future Financial Prospects The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Fed Survey Finds Increased Optimism for Future Financial Prospects Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea Consumer Optimism Federal Reserve Personal Finances 2015-05-27 Brian Honea  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img Previous: Freddie Mac Prices Fourth Structured Credit-Risk Offering of 2015 Next: New VP of Enterprise Sales and Business Development Joins Altisource Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles Tagged with: Consumer Optimism Federal Reserve Personal Finances Subscribelast_img read more

Cordray says Wells Fargo’s effort to downplay the scandal was “spin” that “was crushed by the facts and by the ensuing public outrage.”Wells Fargo is currently set to pay $3 billion as part of its settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice after the SEC charged the bank with misleading investors after opening fake accounts. Wells Fargo’s penalties include $500 million to the SEC.”The Wells Fargo matter is an object lesson in how small risks can balloon into large ones in any profit-making entity if they are not monitored closely,” he writes.Watchdog: How Protecting Consumers Can Save Our Families, Our Economy, and Our Democracy, on The Columbus DIspatch, releases March 2.

Eight dead in three shootings at Georgia spas; suspect in custody

first_imgCherokee Sheriff’s OfficeBy IVAN PEREIRA and MATT FOSTER, ABC News(ACWORTH, Ga.) — At least eight people were killed in three separate shootings at spas in the Atlanta area on Tuesday, according to law enforcement officials. Police said late Tuesday they had a suspect in custody and believe he carried out all three attacks.While responding to Young’s Asian Massage in Acworth, Georgia, at about 5 p.m. deputies found two people dead and three others injured, according to a spokesman from the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office. The three injured were taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, where two later died, said Capt. Jay Baker, director of communications from the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office.About 47 minutes after that incident, Atlanta police responded to a 911 call of a robbery in progress at Gold Spa on Piedmont Road and found three women dead from gunshot wounds, a spokesman told ABC News in a statement.While on the scene, the officers were advised of shots fired at a spa across the street, identified as Aromatherapy Spa. When they went to investigate, police found a woman inside dead from a gunshot wound, Sgt. John Chafee of the Atlanta Police Department said in a statement.All four deaths in the Atlanta shooting were identified as women and “it appears that they may be Asian,” police said at a press conference. Two victims in the Acworth shooting were Asian women, while a white woman and white man were also victims, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office said. A Hispanic man remains in the hospital from that shooting as well.Rita Barron, owner of Gabby s Boutique next door to Young’s Asian Massage Parlor, the location of the first shooting, told ABC News that she first heard one loud pop between the businesses’ shared wall and became concerned.“I have two customers in my store and I heard what sounded like a pop and I thought oh my god something is wrong but I don’t know what was it,” Barron said.Robert Aaron Long, 21, of Woodstock, Georgia, was identified as the suspect in the Acworth shooting and was taken into custody in Crisp County, Georgia, following a police pursuit, authorities said.Initially police said they were unsure whether the three shootings were connected, but Atlanta police said late Tuesday it was “extremely likely” Long carried out all three attacks, based on surveillance video.Long’s vehicle was spotted at about 8 p.m. in Crisp County, which is about three hours south of Atlanta, and deputies performed a PIT maneuver to spin out the car, the Crisp County Sheriff’s Office said. Long was arrested without incident.“Many have asked whether these shootings are related to Cherokee County’s shootings. At the moment, it is too early to confirm that, but we have spoken with Cherokee County officials and we are looking into that possibility,” Atlanta police said in a statement.Prior to Long’s arrest, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office had shared photos of the suspect leaving Young’s Asian Massage in Acworth.While no motivation has been established, anti-Asian hate crimes and harassment have been on the rise over the last couple of months, according to crime data.Stop AAPI Hate released a statement about the shootings, saying, “The reported shootings of multiple Asian American women today in Atlanta is an unspeakable tragedy — for the families of the victims first and foremost, but also for the Asian American community, which has been reeling from high levels of racist attacks over the course of the past year. Few details about these shootings have been released, including whether or not they were motivated by hate.”“Not enough has been done to protect Asian Americans from heightened levels of hate, discrimination and violence,” the statement continued. “Concrete action must be taken now. Anything else is unacceptable. As further details of this tragedy unfold, our hearts go out to the loved ones of the victims and to the Asian American community in Atlanta.”The FBI said in a statement to ABC News that it is now assisting with the investigation.Meanwhile, Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with his South Korean counterpart, Minister of Foreign Affairs Chung Eui-yong, in Seoul, South Korea, on Wednesday and spoke about the shootings in the Atlanta area that killed eight people on Tuesday, including four women of Korean descent.“I want to mention the attacks that happened just a few hours ago in Atlanta, in which several women were killed, including, we believe, four women of Korean descent. We are horrified by this violence which has no place in America or anywhere,” said Blinken. “And I want to mention our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who died, to anyone in the Korean community who is shaken and deeply disturbed by this incident … We will stand up for the rights of our fellow Americans, Korean Americans, to be safe and to be treated with dignity.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
