West Texas bishop announces leadership transition plan

Rev. Gary Lillibridge, in a Jan. 28 letter to the diocese, announced his intention to step down from his responsibilities as the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas sometime during 2017. His plans call for an orderly leadership transition over the next three years. As he begins his 11th year as a bishop this year, Lillibridge intends to remain very active, busy, and dedicated to the people and ministries of the diocese throughout this transition.In 2017, Lillibridge will turn 61 years old and will have been ordained for 35 years. His leaving the position of diocesan bishop is by no means for retirement; rather, Lillibridge plans to stay active in his ordained ministry. He has no set plans at this time, and he trusts God will lead him when the time is right in his next season of ministry.Asked about his announcement, Lillibridge noted, “I love and care deeply for the Diocese of West Texas and continue to be grateful for the opportunity to serve as its bishop. I grew up here, this diocese sent me to seminary, and I have served here since my ordination in 1982. We continue to have many things to do together, and we will continue to do them. I certainly have mixed feelings about this announcement, but also have every confidence that three more years is the right amount of time for both the diocese and for me.” He will speak more about these things during his annual address to Diocesan Council on Feb. 21.During his council address, Lillibridge will also outline a plan for the election of a bishop coadjutor to be held on Oct. 25 of this year. A bishop coadjutor has the automatic succession upon the resignation of the diocesan bishop. West Texas has a long tradition (dating back to 1914) of electing a bishop coadjutor who then works closely with the diocesan bishop for a smooth and orderly transition. The Standing Committee of the diocese has the responsibility of oversight of the election process. It is expected that the bishop coadjutor will begin responsibilities in 2015.This decision comes after deep and prayerful consideration by Lillibridge and his wife, Catherine, and they both remain deeply thankful for the diocesan family’s partnership in the Gospel.

How talented kids from low-income families become America’s ‘Lost Einsteins’

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Editor’s Note: This story was first published on theconversation.comInnovation is widely viewed as the engine of economic growth.To maximize innovation and growth, all of our brightest youth should have the opportunity to become inventors. But a study we recently conducted, jointly with Neviana Petkova of the U.S. Treasury paints a very different picture. We found that a child’s potential for future innovation seems to have as much to do with the circumstances of his or her family background as it does with his or her talent.We concluded that there are many “Lost Einsteins” in America – children who had the ability to innovate, but whose socioeconomic class or gender greatly reduced their ability to tap into the social networks and resources necessary to become inventors. Our analysis sheds light on how increasing these young people’s exposure to innovators may be an important way to reduce these disparities and increase the number of inventors.Academic gaps widen with timeOur first finding is that there are large differences in innovation rates by socioeconomic class, race and gender. Using new de-identified data that allows us to track 1.2 million inventors from birth to adulthood, we found that children born to parents in the top 1 percent of the income distribution are 10 times as likely to become inventors as those born to parents in the bottom half. Similarly, white children are three times as likely to become inventors as are black children. Only 18 percent of the youngest generation of inventors are female. Although the gender gap narrows somewhat each year, at the current rate of convergence, we won’t see gender balance until next century.This is not to say that talent doesn’t play some role in determining who invents in America. In fact, math test scores for students even as young as third grade tell us a great deal about who will innovate. Unsurprisingly, inventors are typically found in the top tiers of math test scores. More concerning is that while high-achieving youth from privileged backgrounds go on to invent at high rates, many comparably talented children from more modest backgrounds do not. Even among the most talented kids, family background is still an important determinant of who grows up to invent.The relative importance of privilege and skills changes as kids get older. And it does so in a way that suggests that differences in educational environment contribute to disparities in patent rates. Near the start of elementary school, we can identify many high-achieving students from less privileged backgrounds. But as these students get older, the difference in test scores between rich and poor become much more pronounced. By high school, youth from less privileged backgrounds who appeared to hold promise as future inventors when they were younger have fallen behind academically. Other recent research suggests that differences in schools and neighborhoods play a large role in this socioeconomic divergence in skills.If we could somehow get all kids to grow up to invent at the same rate as white boys from America’s wealthiest families – that is, families with an income of $100,000 or more – we would have four times as many inventors in America. So what can be done to keep these “Lost Einsteins” in the pipeline to become innovators?Cities full of inventors spawn more innovationWe found that increasing exposure to innovation may be a powerful tool to increase the number of inventors in America, particularly among women, minorities and children from low-income families. To test the importance of exposure, we first counted the number of inventors that lived in each child’s city when the child was young. We use this measure as a proxy for exposure to innovation. After all, a child’s chances of coming into contact with inventors increase when there are more inventors around. We found that growing up in a city with more inventors substantially increases the likelihood that a child will become an inventor as an adult. This is true even when we took kids who were the children of inventors out of the analysis. This suggests that it’s not just children of inventors who are likely to become inventors themselves.As time goes on, less privileged kids who had the talent to become inventors fall behind their more well-off peers academically. ShutterstockWe also found that kids who go on to become inventors tend to invent the same kinds of things as the inventors in the city where they grew up. For instance, among current Boston residents, those who grew up in Silicon Valley around computer innovators are most likely to invent computer-related technologies. On the other hand, Boston residents who grew up in Minneapolis – a hub for medical device companies – are more likely to invent new medical devices. These detailed patterns suggest that there is something specific about interactions with inventors during childhood that causes kids to follow in their footsteps.The effects of growing up around inventors are large. Our estimates suggest that moving a child from an area at the 25th percentile of exposure to inventors, such as New Orleans, to one at the 75th percentile, such as Austin, Texas, would increase the child’s chances of growing up to invent a new technology by as much as 50 percent.These effects are stronger when children are exposed to inventors with similar backgrounds. Girls who grow up in a city with more female inventors are more likely to invent, but growing up around adult male inventors has no effect on girls’ future innovation rates. Similarly, boys’ future innovation is influenced by the number of male rather than female inventors around them during childhood.Chicago students participate in an invention workshop meant to encourage more American students to become engineers and inventors. AP/Peter BarrerasSince underrepresented groups are likely to have fewer interactions with inventors through their families and neighborhoods, differences in exposure play a large role in these disparities. Indeed, our findings suggest that if young girls were exposed to female innovators at the same rate as boys are to male innovators, half of the gender gap in innovation would be erased.Together, our findings call for greater focus on policies and programs to tap into our country’s underutilized talents by increasing exposure to innovation for girls and kids from underprivileged backgrounds. It may be particularly beneficial to focus on children who do well in math and science at early ages.Such policies could include mentoring programs, internships or even interventions through social networks. At a more personal level, those in positions to be mentors might give more thought to making sure students from underprivileged backgrounds have the guidance needed to follow them in their career paths. The more each of us does to help boys and girls from different backgrounds achieve their innovative potential, the more it will spur innovation and economic growth for us all.

Generally High over a river meadow a sharp edged dwelling house rises on the gentle ridge of the Cainsdorfer local situation. It uses the available hillside situation of a generous property, contrasts by his clear geometry, nevertheless, consciously and strikingly with the grown landscape. Save this picture!© Bertram BölkowThe polygonal volume adapts itself in his relative cubic capacity of course in the context of a heterogeneous structured outskirts situation. The granulation and the scale of the mostly empty single constructions of the surroundings will transfer into the solitaire construction. Nevertheless, by the clarity and precision of the form, the big single openings and not least by the material of the extremely smooth view concrete facade, the house changes the usual picture of the surroundings. Construction Save this picture!© Bertram BölkowThe building was completely established as a monolithic, ferro-concrete construction with nuclear insulation. Topmost demands were made to the external highly demanding view concrete intention bowl of the bivalve outer wall concerning the quality of the concrete. By means of a two-ply, constructive armouring an extremely slender external wall strength was achieved in a dimension of only 15 cm. Save this picture!© Bertram BölkowThe smooth surface of the concrete is improved, in addition, with a fine colour glaze optically and is protected by a clear hydrophobizing prolonged before decomposition. The disguising of the building incisions in the facade was realised as a curtain wall facade with anodized aluminium boards. Interior The internal complexity and the different space heights are not discernible from Outside and are experienceable only with entrance of the building for the visitor. Also it behaves with the creation of the interiors. Of the hardness of the concrete above all natural materials step here, like dark wood, bright natural stone, cream-coloured materials and against colours which emit a big warmth and security in the combination.

Charitable giving makes people more attractive to others, data shows

She can be reached via Tagged with: Research / statistics Melanie May | 14 February 2018 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis145 Data analysis by eharmony and JustGiving has revealed that when people are known to give to charity, they appear more attractive to others.In fact, charitable giving boosts perceived levels of attractiveness for a third (32%) of singles with this feeling strongest among those aged 18-34. Altruistic people also receive more communication when online dating. In addition, the eharmony and JustGiving data shows that over a fifth (23%) would rather receive a charity donation on their behalf than a traditional Valentine’s gift.Data mined from eharmony also shows that singles who reference some form of philanthropy on their profile – with keywords including charity, volunteering, giving or donating – receive over a third (34%) more communications than those who do not.Similarly, those who appear to be innately more generous, based on psychological analysis from their answers to eharmony’s Relationship Questionnaire, receive around 80% more messages.The analysis also considers location and reveals that residents of Liverpool, Manchester and Belfast possess the highest levels of philanthropy, making them the UK’s most charitably-minded cities. When considering gender, women are found to be somewhat more altruistic than their male counterparts.Jonathan Beber, Head of Research and Development at eharmony said:“Altruism is a key dimension of compatibility which helps us predict whether two people will have a satisfying relationship together.“This is because sharing altruistic traits means you and your partner prioritise caring for others in the same way. Research also suggests that altruistic singles tend to end up in happier in relationships, perhaps because they are more generous-hearted.“On the other hand, if two people have significantly differing altruism levels, they may encounter more conflict in their relationship. For example, a person who scores low on altruism may be critical of a more generous partner who spends a lot of time volunteering, helping others or donates money to charity.”  627 total views,  3 views today Advertisement Charitable giving makes people more attractive to others, data shows  628 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis145last_img read more

Oakland City leadership promotes rapist cops

first_imgThe Anti Police-Terror Project pickets the Oakland Police Department promotion of rapist cops on July 14.Oakland, Calif. — Mayor Libby Schaaf and her new Chief of Police Anne Kirkpatrick demonstrated a blatant disregard for the failure of the Oakland Police Department’s leadership in the investigation of the 2015 rape and sexual abuse of minor “Celeste Guap,” as they promoted two of those responsible to high leadership positions on July 14.The teenager had been raped and sexually abused by Bay Area police officers.  Despite the fact that she was a key witness in as yet uncharged cases against at least eight officers, “Guap” was sent off to a Florida rehabilitation center before a single charge had been filed. “Celeste Guap” is a pseudonym used after Florida law enforcement released the teenager’s real name. (, 9/8/2016)Yet city officials went to great lengths to protect the police officers. Not even the mainstream media were allowed inside the secretive promotions ceremony for Officers John Lois and Roland Holmgren.  The promotions seemingly occurred under the radar of Federal Judge Thelton Henderson, who held a hearing July 10 related to failures of the city leadership and the Oakland Police Department to properly investigate the child rape and trafficking scandal, brought to light in the federally sponsored Swanson-Barron report. The OPD is still under federal monitoring from the 2003 Negotiated Settlement Agreement (NSA).Chief Kirkpatrick has approved major promotions for the very officers who, the Swanson-Barron report found, failed to properly investigate the rape scandal, notify the federal monitor, the district attorney and mayor, and even encouraged destruction of evidence in the case.Schaaf closed her investigation before findings were even issued. Lois was promoted to assistant chief, the second-highest post in the department. Holmgren was promoted to captain, overseeing the criminal investigation division.According to the East Bay Express, the Swanson-Barron report documented the failings of Lois, Holmgren and Captain Kirk Coleman of the criminal investigation division to sufficiently investigate officer wrongdoing during the Guap case in 2015. The three were the most senior personnel overseeing the sex-crime allegations. (July 10, 2017)A brief filed by civil rights attorneys Jim Chanin and John Burris, who originally brought the class action which led to the NSA, noted: “There is no evidence that any of the officers engaging in this behavior, or any of the supervisors who observed it and apparently failed to report it, stop it, or discipline their subordinates, were ever investigated, and if appropriate, disciplined by the Oakland Police Department.”  (East Bay Express, July 6, 2017)The Anti Police-Terror Project staged a picket line outside the outrageous OPD promotions ceremony held on the outskirts of Oakland calling for “Prosecution not promotion” and the firing of rapist cops.The APTP challenged Mayor Schaaf’s and Chief Kirkpatrick’s ability to get a handle on the blatant culture of sexual abuse and general disregard for the rights of the Black community, people of color, LGBTQIA, undocumented, disabled and unhoused people of Oakland.  Endorsers of action also included the National Brown Berets, the People’s Commission for Justice, Peace Out Loud and Workers World Party.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Homebuyer’s Economy in 2019

first_img Share 1Save With financial situations threatening to worsen in the coming year, economic growth is projected to slow to 2.2 percent in 2019, down from the previous year’s 3.1 percent growth, according to Fannie Mae Economic and Strategic Research Group’s January 2019 Economic and Housing Outlook. Fannie Mae notes that despite the boost in 2018, household income is expected to wane this year, but the labor market is expected to remain solid.According to Fannie Mae, the housing market should remain relatively stable as interest rates are expected to change very little in 2019, giving potential homebuyers new opportunities following 2018’s “erratic interest rate movement”.Fannie Mae notes that the Fed’s plan for the year remains central to the forecast, and with tightening financial conditions and muted inflationary pressure, only one interest rate hike expected for the year.“Economic growth in 2018 will likely turn out to be the strongest of the current expansion, and inflation remained anchored even as the unemployment rate dipped to multi-decade lows. However, home sales experienced a setback, partly attributable to the most aggressive pace of monetary tightening of the expansion,” said Doug Duncan, Chief Economist at Fannie Mae.“This year, the expansion is likely to become the longest on record, but the path to continued growth faces a number of downside risks with fewer upside risks,” Duncan said. “With fading impacts of fiscal policy and tight financial conditions around the globe, we’re seeing moderating economic growth in the next couple of years. The Fed’s continued efforts to unwind expansionary monetary policies implemented during the recession have the potential to add to the headwinds facing the economy. However, we believe that contained price pressures should afford the Fed sufficient latitude to slow or pause rate hikes this year. This will allow the economy to continue growing, albeit at a slower pace, and housing to regain its footing.” Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Previous: Spotlight on Fast-tracking Foreclosure Next: A Housing Heat Wave Hits the South Economy Fannie Mae Fed Mortgage Market 2019-01-22 Seth Welborn Subscribe Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / The Homebuyer’s Economy in 2019 Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Homebuyer’s Economy in 2019 Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago January 22, 2019 1,148 Views The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
