With about 364,000 Filipino seafarers crewing the global shipping fleet, they make up 28% of the total crew numbers.In response The Mission to Seafarers, the global maritime welfare charity, has announced today that they have set up a new emergency communications fund, which will give free access to Wi-Fi and hand out phone cards to Filipino seafarers in our directly funded international centers.Ken Peters, director of justice and welfare, said: “With so many Filipino crews around the world, we are very anxious to ensure that any crew member who needs to call home in an emergency can do so, regardless of the ability to pay. At the mission, we have offered an immediate bursary for 7 days, to MtS centers, to enable them to fund free calls home, either by connecting to Wi-Fi or to fund the distribution of free phone cards, SIMs or top up cards. We will monitor this situation closely but it comes in response to so many worried and distressed seafarers who are far from home and are desperate to get news quickly as they come ashore in port.”Ben Humphries, mission chaplain in Mombasa, Kenya, said: “I have just been in the mission chapel with Loggan, a Filipino seafarer on the Bahamas registered cargo ship ‘Kumasi’ which docked in Mombasa earlier today, having crossed the Indian Ocean Piracy High risk area from the Maldives. Loggan came to the mission anxious for news of his wife and young children as they were enduring the typhoon following on closely from the earthquake of three weeks ago.Loggan had been at sea for four weeks and was desperate for his ship to sail within range of the Kenyan phone networks so that he could get news of his family. After having spoken with them, and watched some videos of how his family had survived which his friends had posted onto his phone, he then wanted a few moments of quiet and to have his family prayed for.Humphries said: “Clearly these are the stresses that seafarers have when they await news of their family in worrying times, and this is how The Mission to Seafarers can help. I am delighted we are now able to offer direct, practical communications services for free, in our key centers so that other seafarers can contact home quickly at this terrible time.”The Mission to SeafarersFounded in 1856, and entirely funded by voluntary donations, today’s Mission to Seafarers is a registered charity that offers emergency assistance, practical support, and a friendly welcome to crews visiting over 260 ports around the world in 71 countries.Whether caring for victims of piracy or providing a lifeline to those stranded in foreign ports, we are there for the globe’s 1.3 million merchant seafarers of all ranks, nationalities and beliefs.The Mission to Seafarers’ Patron is Her Majesty The Queen and our President is Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal.

Son relatos de resurrección: de episcopales que han reinventado la Iglesia y, en el proceso, se han reinventado a sí mismos.“No estamos tratando de reconstruir una vieja iglesia”, dice J. Scott Mayer, el obispo provisional de Fort Worth, que también es el obispo de la Diócesis de Texas Noroccidental. “Estamos tratando de participar en la resurrección para convertirnos en un nuevo cuerpo”.Esas personas han creado nuevos ministerios y, en el proceso, están desarrollando nuevos modos de ser la Iglesia, mientras sirven a sus comunidades.Y cuando “van a la iglesia”, algunos episcopales de Fort Worth adoran en espacios no convencionales, tales como un teatro y una franja comercial. En un caso, los episcopales del Condado de Wise celebran su culto en un edificio que comenzó por ser la misión episcopal de la Ascensión [Ascension] en 1889 y durante los años transcurridos ha sido una fábrica de colchones y, más recientemente, una capilla de bodas.Incluso la oficina del Obispo es diferente. Si bien el modelo de obispo provisional se está usando en otras partes de la Iglesia Episcopal, es todavía una relativa rareza, pero una que el obispo Mayer cree que ilustra cómo las diócesis podrían concentrar sus recursos.Él hace notar que el obispo Sean Rowe, de la Diócesis de Pensilvania Noroccidental, quien también es obispo provisional de la Diócesis de Bethlehem en la parte oriental del estado, señala que en los años sesenta, la Iglesia Episcopal tenía menos diócesis y que ahora tiene más diócesis y menos gente.“Ese puede no ser un modelo sostenible para todos nosotros”, dijo Mayer, añadiendo que si bien él no está necesariamente abogando por combinar diócesis, la Iglesia puede necesitar encontrar nuevas maneras de compartir recursos diocesanos.“Y, en este caso, el recurso a compartir sería el obispo”, afirmó.Mayer es el cuarto obispo provisional de Fort Worth. El primero fue el entonces obispo de Kentucky Edwin F. Gulick Jr. (“Ted” ), seguido por C. Wallis Ohl Jr., obispo jubilado de Texas Noroccidental y luego por Rayford B. High Jr., obispo sufragáneo jubilado de Texas.Fort Worth tiene 17 congregaciones, entre ella una congregación luterana pastoreada por un sacerdote episcopal. En el tiempo transcurrido desde la escisión, la diócesis ha visto un aumento de un 19,3 por ciento en miembros comulgantes y un 11,9 por ciento de aumento en sus ingresos operativos. Desde su reorganización en 2009, Fort Worth ha pagado anualmente el monto total solicitado por la Iglesia Episcopal para apoyar el presupuesto trienal de la denominación. Es la única de las seis diócesis del estado de Texas que lo hace.Katie Sherrod, directora de Comunicaciones de Fort Worth le dijo a Episcopal News Service que después de la reorganización de la diócesis en 2009, todos sus archivos estaban en desorden puesto que el antiguo obispo estaba ocupando las oficinas diocesanas y otras propiedades de la Iglesia Episcopal. “Dedicamos 2009 y 2010 a localizar a los episcopales, a reconstruir congregaciones, a encontrar clero y a localizar lugares de culto. Para 2011/2012, finalmente tuvimos una evaluación realista de la membresía en las congregaciones de la diócesis”, explicó ella. “Es en esas cifras en las que se basas la evaluación de nuestro crecimiento”.Transformar la manera en que la Iglesia Episcopal ministra en los 24 condados del norte de Texas central surgió de la necesidad, en parte, en tanto la Iglesia Episcopal y la diócesis buscan recuperar las propiedades y otros bienes aún controlados por los que se fueron. El Tribunal de Apelaciones de Texas está considerando el caso luego de los argumentos de la vista oral del caso el 19 de abril de 2016.“Se prevé, sin embargo, que el fallo de este tribunal será recurrido ante el Tribunal Supremo de Texas por cualquier parte que en contra de la cual decida el Tribunal de Apelaciones”, dijo Sherrod.La Iglesia Episcopal, a nivel denominacional, ha apoyado la reinvención de la diócesis. El Consejo Ejecutivo, el cual se ha reunido en la diócesis dos veces desde la secesión, ofreció en junio una combinación de una subvención directa del presupuesto general de la Iglesia, dinero recaudado por la Oficina de Desarrollo de la Iglesia y el Obispo Primado, y subvenciones para la plantación de iglesias y el desarrollo de zonas de empresa de misión a través de la Resolución 2015-D005 sobre el proceso de plantación de iglesias.La financiación, equiparada por la diócesis y sus congregaciones, ayuda a sostener al clero que está a cargo de comunidades de fe de rápido crecimiento.El Banco de Alimentos de los 4 Santos, un esfuerzo para responder a las necesidades de los hambrientos y entablar relaciones con ellos en un desierto alimentario en el lado este de Fort Worth, ha recibido una subvención de Zona de Empresa de Misión de $20.000. El ministerio usará el dinero para comenzar a comprar el equipo necesario para una despensa de beneficencia autorizada. La despensa funcionará a partir de la iglesia episcopal de San Lucas del Prado [St. Luke’s in the Meadow Episcopal Church] el Banco de Alimentos del Área de Tarrant. San Lucas; San Martín [St. Martin’s], en Keller Southlake; San Esteban [St. Stephen’s], en Hurst; y San Albano [St. Alban’s] (que se congrega en el Teatro Arlington), son los cuatro “santos” asociados en el ministerio.Otras solicitudes de subvenciones, entre ellas una para plantar una iglesia en la zona de rápido crecimiento del este de Fort Worth, se encuentran en proceso, en un empeño de reclamar fondos adicionales relacionados con [la resolución] D005, dijo Sherrod.En los próximos días, Episcopal News Service publicará cuatro relatos de la resurrección de la Diócesis de Fort Worth.– La Rda.

Photographs:  Marko ZoranovičText description provided by the architects. The presented single-family house is built in the village of Suha, in the suburbs of a famous medieval town, Škofja Loka in Slovenia. The building is built as a replacement structure on the site of a former farm building which represented the eastern side of a unified space of a farm courtyard. Due to the cultural heritage regulations the new building has a gabled roof and follows the gauges of maximum allowed building dimensions of the demolished structure. The investor of the new building is the farm owner’s son, who is academically educated and therefore has very urban housing needs in terms of the program of the house, which is located in a traditional rural area. Save this picture!© Marko ZoranovičRecommended ProductsWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesDoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeThe immediate location of the house is situated on the edge of the Sora River slope, turning towards the direction of the river in the south and west, from where it has beautiful panoramic view of the medieval castle built high over Škofja Loka town. The building has a basement, a ground floor and first floor. It is positioned perpendicular to the river slope. In this way the basement opens towards the lower river terrace, while the ground floor is open – with a wide glass surface – towards the farm courtyard, which lies on the upper river terrace. The first floor with the sleeping rooms is facing east. Building’s public access is from the south side via accessible route, offering both access on foot and access with a car to the garages located in the basement. Along the longer, east side an external staircase leads to the main entrance. Save this picture!© Marko ZoranovičThe west side of the building is immersed into the existing grassy slope, where the Japanese-style garden stairs lead to the grassy surface in front of the living room on the ground floor of the object. In this way the building is well integrated into the site. Save this picture!© Marko ZoranovičSuch position of the building maintains the urbanistic image and roundedness of the farm courtyard which is surrounded, like a large atrium, by the homestead owner’s buildings and the new houses of his children. The cross-section of the building is in the shape of the letter ‘Z’ with the ground floor completely open towards the courtyard on the west side of the building, while the first floor faces towards the east side of the building. The program division of the building into floors is simple and logical. The basement floor features a large garage, a storage room, fitness, sauna, a boiler room and a utility room. From here the stairs lead to the ground floor and further to the first floor. The ground floor is a long, rectangular shape. On its narrower, north side, the staircase and main entrance are located, along with the doorway and a toilet. The remaining large unified space is dedicated to the program of kitchen, dinning room and living room. This space opens through a 12-meter-wide unsupported window to the ‘atrium’ of the house from where picturesque views open to the river and the old town. This is actually a ‘balcony’ room with a view. Save this picture!section 02From the ground floor the staircase leads to the first floor and into a longitudinal corridor along the west side, featuring a long, panoramic window which allows views of the town panorama. The east side of the corridor is dotted with the sleeping and ‘working’ rooms of children and parents with corresponding bathrooms. The entire eastern side of the corridor is lined with wardrobes. The parents’ bedroom has a separate bathroom and a south-facing panoramic window which allows picturesque views of the surroundings from the level of the bed. Save this picture!site planThe building construction is made of reinforced concrete, the partition walls are brick and the roofing is made of wood. Above the ground floor, a more complex bridging is realized for the purpose of the large ground-floor panoramic window. The external load-bearing walls are insulated with 25cm thick insulation, on which white plaster is placed. The zinc roof is light grey in colour. A glass projecting roof is installed over the building’s main entrance. The green ‘terrace’ in front of the living room is equipped with a wide walking surface made of teak wood. Save this picture!© Marko ZoranovičThe heating is a combination of under-floor heating, recuperator, heat pump and two geothermal bore holes. The low energy house has minimal electric energy consumption. Because of its low energy consumption, the house has apertures only where they are needed, or where additional views of the surroundings are thus enabled.Save this picture!sketch 02Project gallerySee allShow lessGlobal Holcim Awards 2012 WinnersArticlesSOILED: Platescrapers / CARTOGRAM Architecture + Urban DesignArticles Share CopyHouses•Slovenia Photographs CopyAbout this officeArhitektura d.o.o.OfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSloveniaPublished on April 04, 2012Cite: “Suha Private House / Arhitektura d.o.o.” 04 Apr 2012.

Text donations up 32% in a year to almost £50m

Drivers of growth highlighted in the review include the higher donations individuals can now donate by text. This follows 2018’s lifting of the previous limit of £20 per donation via premium SMS to £30.PSA’s research also pointed to the growth in mobile donations outside of telethon events, with industry participants suggesting that promotion of premium SMS as a donation channel during telethon events has had a positive effect on broader consumer awareness, as well as an indirect positive impact on the number of individuals opting to subscribe to charities and make regular donations via premium SMS.However, the report states, while 2018/19 saw a substantial increase in donation totals, these can vary year to year due to some key charity telethon events only occurring every two years. For example, in 2018–2019 across all spending channels, an additional £33.9 million was raised through telethons, compared to that raised in 2017–2018.Overall, PSA found, the phone-paid services market grew by £90 million last year, and was valued at £630.9 million: up from 2017/18’s £540.5 million, and largely driven by Operator Billing.  560 total views,  2 views today Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis24 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Throughout the past eight years, students have advocated for extended weekend library hours, extended Market Square hours and the creation of new food options in the King Family Commons, Boschini said.Chancellor Boschini speaks at his annual town hall in March 2013. Photo by TCU 360 Students can meet with Boschini at 9 a.m. Wednesday in the Dee J. Kelly Center at his spring student town hall. Typically, students ask questions about the increasing tuition price, the core curriculum and the future of TCU, Boschini said. The town hall was created to resolve student protests after a 6.5 percent tuition hike in 2011 that raised tuition to $32,400. Michael Millican, TCU alumnus, led a group of around 50 student-protestors who stood on the steps of Sadler with posters in November 2011. Students protest an increase in tuition without transparency at the Occupy Sadler protest in November 2011. Photo courtesy of TCU 360“The event was just a very quick show of strength,” Millican said. “There were quite a few media outlets present and probably 30 to 50 students.”Occupy Sadler capitalized on the political buzz of the simultaneous Occupy Wall Street protest, which captured the media’s attention.To end Occupy Sadler, Boschini held his first town hall and has held separate town halls for students and faculty in the past eight years. Chancellor Boschini spoke to students on the steps of Sadler in November 2011 at his first town hall. Photo by TCU 360While TCU did not increase merit-based scholarships in proportion to tuition increases, as the Occupy Sadler protest demanded, Millican sees a lasting impact from his efforts.“I would like to think the upcoming town hall is an offshoot of our efforts all those years ago,” Mullican said. “We did what we did because we love TCU and hated to see the university price existing students out so cold-heartedly.”However, the issue of increasing tuition without paralleled increases in merit-based scholarships has not disappeared.The TCU Board of Trustees has already voted to increase tuition for the 2019-2020 school year by 4.9 percent from $46,860 to $49,160. Boschini said he hopes to receive new ideas from students at the upcoming town hall.“It’s less like people grinding an axe and more like people promoting a new idea, which is good,” Boschini said.
