IEA: Liberalise for lower prices

first_img whatsapp KCS-content Share The price of essential goods is more important to levels of poverty than differences in income levels, a leading think tank said today. Governments’ obsession with misleading poverty targets has led to an ever increasing welfare budget that simply imbeds dependence, the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) said. Instead, protectionist measures like the EU’s common agricultural policy should be dropped along with excessive regulation, lowering prices, it argues in the report. More could be done to simplify the tax system and incentivise the poor to enter the jobs market, it found. “People trapped in dependency have continued to struggle as the price of many essential goods such as housing has risen,” said the author Kristian Niemietz.

Photo: St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church“Because I so easily ‘fall in love’ with money,” wrote one Post-It respondent. “Giving, even though it scares me, forces me to notice when materialism is driving me more than trust in God.”The invitation to link church members’ money lives to their faith lives transforms the totality of their lives, according to the Rev. Chris Harris, St. Bart’s curate.The Giving Wall, like the money autobiographies and simple-living classes he offers, are spiritual exercises and are part of the church’s year-round formation efforts – not to be confused with seasonal pledge drives.The focus and emphasis of traditional stewardship campaigns are changing, according to Richard Felton, executive director of The Episcopal Network for Stewardship, or TENS, which partners with and offers resources to dioceses throughout the Episcopal Church.Gone are traditional seasonal money pitches. Big red thermometers with dollar-and-cent signs inching upward have been replaced by budgets detailing ways staff and office hours translate to mission and ministry.The once church-wide dinner galas marking stewardship campaigns have been replaced by smaller potluck meals, and more intimate opportunities for conversation and deeper relationship in members’ homes, according to Felton.Gone also are pleas for assistance with campus repairs from finance-minded parishioners. Instead, parishioners hear personal stories of transformation, of deepening faith and ministry that, said Harris, when “authentic and vulnerable, end up building community in a way that giving flows from that.”The new stewardship focus includes stories like the one Joyce Vidal recently told Sunday morning worshippers at St. Barnabas on the Desert about her shift from being a “reluctant churchgoer under the radar” to gratitude for “the opportunity to serve, to grow in faith and in my relationship with God and to experience the healing presence of Jesus.”After participating in the choir and various ministries, the eight-year member of the Scottsdale, Arizona, congregation said she began to understand that “this community is such an expression of discipleship on so many levels.“I belong,” Vidal said. “The more I participate at St. Barnabas, the more my gratitude grows.”The church’s mission: making disciplesMaking disciples is the church’s mission, said the Rev. Jim Clark, St. Barnabas’ rector.“People give to cancer research because it’s clear to them what the mission is and people value that; they give to the mission of a university because it’s clear what the university is doing,” Clark told the Episcopal News Service. “Other people give in a very particular way because they believe in what is being accomplished.“But the church has not done a good job of (communicating the) great value in making disciples of Jesus. That is the church’s mission.”He said the church’s mission “is not to be a soup kitchen or a food bank. If disciples go out and do all those things, that’s the genius, but the charism, the unique thing the church has to offer the world, is to make people like Jesus. It is worthwhile, perhaps the most important thing any human being can do to support one another.”Marcia Shetler, executive director of the Richmond, Indiana-based Ecumenical Stewardship Center, said the most successful stewardship happens in churches that offer year-round formation and that practice generosity as a spiritual discipline, as “part of what God calls us to do as Christians.”At the same time, the ESC director said, a pledge drive is also necessary because “it’s the way to show and to practice what we are planning to do” especially if churches present mission-based budgets detailing how giving impacts various ministries of the church.ESC offers resources and educational opportunities to 20 North American denominational partners, including the Episcopal Church and TENS, an associate partner.But a huge challenge is our culture’s reluctance or inability to talk about money, and that often spills over into church life, she said.Unlike the early church where members pooled financial resources to help one another, “the challenge for us in North America in general is this attitude of secrecy about money, that our finances are a private matter, not really something we should talk about in church,” Shetler said.And for those heavily in debt, “it becomes a matter almost of shame, and the last thing they want to do is share their finances with their sisters and brothers in Christ, unfortunately, because the church has not always done a good job of creating safe space for them.”The Giving Wall at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Poway, California, is filled with parishioners’ reasons for why they commit to giving to the church. Photo: St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal ChurchHarris, a former attorney, agreed that money talk is a challenge. “Take a look at social media. We put all kinds of stuff up on Facebook. We share our love lives, our health, if our dog dies, but how often do you see a post where someone says, ‘Anyone know a good bankruptcy attorney? I’m getting worried about my debt.’ ”And yet, says Harris, 47, most Episcopalians are statistically three paychecks away from having a concern about whether or not they will be able to make their next mortgage or rent payment. “It’s hard to preach about abundance when people are living in that reality,” he said.“There’s a reason Jesus talked about money as often as he did,” added Harris. “It is a complete disservice in this hyper-consumer culture we live in when we don’t talk about it. If money was one of the major distractions to our relationship to God 2,000 years ago, tell me it’s not a thousand times more so today. Besides sex, it’s the other reason our relationships break up.“If we don’t want to talk about money and we’re nervous about that, then you really need to talk about it.”Or, he said, if money talk prompts eyes to start rolling and people are hoping we’ll get back to spiritual matters and off this money talk, “pay attention – because that’s ground zero of what Jesus was trying to get us to notice,” Harris said. “That whole notion is false – that I can let Jesus into part of my life but not my lifestyle, not my pocketbook, (because) I don’t want to change that much.”Often rectors, too, are uncomfortable with money talk – St. Barnabas’ Clark acknowledges he once was.But he realized that “making disciples is not just about money … it is about the much bigger picture – of my whole life in response to God’s goodness, abundance and generosity to me, God’s grace – and what is my response to that?”With 455 pledging households, St. Barnabas’ three-pronged financial pledging campaign this year included sharing stories of parishioners’ growth in faith, presenting to the congregation a mission-based budget, and a series of potluck meals in homes to share gratefulness for the church.“We had conversations. We told stories. We put it on Post-It notes on boards positioned around the campus,” Clark said. “Everybody said it is one of the most meaningful things we’ve done. It changes people’s lives. It’s a mission worth giving to.”Shetler said another challenge results from churches’ reluctance to adopt acceptable philanthropic practices, such as using legacy programs and endowments. “Many church members make big gifts to their alma maters and to other charities but somehow the church isn’t looked at in the same way,” she said. “And the majority (of churches) do not encourage folks to consider leaving a legacy through their will to the church.”But she said there is hope – and help. The Lake Institute for Faith and Giving, a research and educational arm of Indiana University, offers assistance and resources for religious fundraising.TENS’ Felton said perceptions about stewardship have evolved from being a dreaded seasonal task to “teaching and inspiring generosity in all sorts of ways. That is what the church should be about, generosity – not just in money but in how we forgive people and how we welcome strangers.”The organization’s “Living Generously” stewardship resources offered assistance to member partners for 2016.  An annual conference, “Journey to Generosity,” is planned for May 18-20, 2017 at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Minneapolis.St. Barnabas’ Vidal said she still isn’t all that comfortable talking about money, but “I am comfortable talking about my gratitude for St. Barnabas that includes my commitment to pledge … and how this gratitude is manifested in my pledge.“Writing my check is an act of prayer for the mission of St. Barnabas,” she said in her remarks to parishioners. “Dropping that check in the basket, seeing it raised and blessed reminds me that God is blessing my gift of gratitude.”–The Rev.

Schoolboy prop’s incredible trysaver inspires unbelievable coast to coast try

first_imgTuesday Aug 20, 2019 Schoolboy prop’s incredible trysaver inspires unbelievable coast to coast try This try scored in South African schoolboy rugby on the weekend has got quite a bit of attention this week. It features two of the traditional rivals in the country as they went head to head in a thrilling derby match in Stellenbosch.ADVERTISEMENTHosted by Paul Roos – the school that has produced a number of Springboks, including latest scrumhalf sensation Herschel Jantjies – a packed crowd got to witness some excellent tries.There was one clear moment of the match though, taking place late in the first half as Paul Roos broke down the left flank. Incredibly, the breakaway run that ended up in the hands of their left winger, was sensationally chased down, by a prop!The crunching tackle caused a turnover, but that wasn’t the end of the action.Grey College fullback Franco Knoetze then ran from his own tryline, straightened up and scythed through the defence, hitting sixth gear to go all the way untouched for a memorable try.The derby was won 51-28 by Grey College, thanks in part to the brilliant commitment from the likes of their courageous prop.ADVERTISEMENTYou can see more replays of the try below and full highlights lower down the page.In their emphatic 51-28 victory over Paul Roos, Grey College fullback Franco Knoetze scored one of the more memorable tries in the Derby’s history to get the entire crowd on their feet ⚡️👏🔥 pic.twitter.com/wLrtfl3cOZ— SuperSport (@SuperSportTV) August 18, 2019Full highlights:ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_img “COPY” eHouse / Axelrod Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/102761/ehouse-axelrod-architects Clipboard Projects Photographs:  Amit Geron Text description provided by the architects. eHouse is a single family house that borrows from two traditions in architecture – a Mediterranean aesthetic of sun and light and a minimalist discipline of line and plane. Save this picture!© Amit GeronRecommended ProductsDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20WindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsThe design exhibits a masterful use of that most modern of materials, concrete. The core of the house, both conceptually and structurally, is several vertical and horizontal planes. Conceptually, the vertical planes define the axes of the house and the horizontal planes the spatial volume. Structurally, the concrete elements support every other architectural surface, predominantly glass and drywall. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe extensive use of glass allows that most Mediterranean element, sunlight, to permeate into every room. Whether, direct, indirect, or filtered, light fills this house. Many smaller glazed areas reveal hidden views of exterior garden. A large 14 meter expanse of glass floods the main living/dining/kitchen area with daylight. The entire 14 meter window system can even be rolled back to create one super room of indoor and outdoor space. In plan, the house is defined by two axes; one running lengthwise through the main living space and one perpendicular from the main entrance to the staircase. The longitudinal axis is reflected in the roof plane with a long skylight that runs the entire length of the house. The transverse axis is punctuated with a dramatic front entrance of horizontal wooden slats and cantilevered canopy. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe private sector of the house contains six bedroom/studies. The master bedroom, half a flight above the main level, appears to float above the rest of the house. Its cantilevered floor slab with a meter of vertical glass beneath it completes the illusion of lightness. Three children’s bedrooms are on the main level and two guest/ study rooms are placed on the lowest level. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe site is masterfully landscaped and includes several decks and a reflecting pool. Because the site is comprised of two standard Tel Aviv lots, extensive outdoor space was available for these site amenities. The placement of fenestration within the house makes full use of the views to the outside and creates interior view corridors at every turn.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe large floor plan of 500 square meters (5,000 square feet) gave expression to a flowing main level with ample opportunity for outdoor living.

GuideStar UK preview on hold to improve login

first_imgGuideStar UK will offer what it claims to be “the most comprehensive web-based encyclopaedia of registered charities in England and Wales.”The charity wrote to all 167,000 charities featured on the website giving them each a unique password that wouldl allow them to view their entry and add to it.Password holders who logged in on the first day will have seen information about their charity’s activities and finances, extracted verbatim from documents filed with the Charity Commission. They would also have found a guide showing them how to add, if they wished, logos, links, information about achievements and future campaigns, newsletters and press releases.Before the preview was put on hold, Erica Roberts, GuideStar UK’s chief executive, said: “this preview will contribute to ensuring that the site when it goes public is as good as possible.”There is no deadline: the option to update the entry on the website will remain for charities to use whenever they wish.Roberts says that the government-funded website, a free resource for charities and visitors to the site, will attract 1.6 million visitors in its first year.Funding for the site included a grant in March 2003 of £2.9m over 3 years from HM Treasury’s Invest to Save Budget, and grants from charitable trusts including The Weston Foundation, The Community Fund, Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, The Bulldog Trust, and The Dulverton Trust, as well as from individual philanthropists. Howard Lake | 7 September 2005 | News GuideStar UK preview on hold to improve login Charity information site GuideStar UK yesterday began a month’s pre-launch preview for charities before the site is launched publicly. However, responses within the first day from over 200 charities made it clear that the site’s registration and login procedure needed to be improved, so the preview is currently on hold until 22 September 2005.GuideStar UK apologises for the delay, but thanks the charities who explored the preview for their prompt and constructive feedback.A GuideStar spokesperson said: “feedback from charities is an important function of this preview, which is part of our continuous consultation process.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
