Are we stewards of the earth’s natural wonders?

Reply EXPLORING OR EXPLOITING – As our family enjoyed the natural aura of Bok Tower Gardens, located far away from Florida’s Interstates and tollways, I thought with sadness about America’s shrinking National Parks, our dismissing the significance of climate change and rampant profit-minded exploitation of natural resources.A young man recently pointed to the text in Genesis and asked, “What does it mean when God charges Adam to subdue the earth? Does that mean we can do with the earth whatever we want?” I smiled and shared with him the text telling us that God placed Adam in the garden לעובדה ולשומרה, to work it and to safeguard it.We work the land to provide food and shelter, and to benefit the basic needs of humanity; at the same time, we safeguard the natural beauty of the land without exploiting resources. Yes, we need more oil and materials to benefit companies who employ people. We also need the sense of appreciation that acknowledges our responsibility of stewardship and prevents us from taking the world’s natural wonders for granted.Writing in 1951, Abraham Joshua Heschel offers us a very contemporary insight: As civilization advances, the sense of wonder declines. Such decline is an alarming symptom of our state of mind. We will not perish for want of information, but only for want of appreciation. You have entered an incorrect email address!

Speck fishing around here all the time, and on the day after Thanksgiving, and other times often heading to the coast to saltwater fish from the bridges, or going to around Cocoa area, and salt water fishing. Plus bass fishing at the local lakes routinely. We are just finishing up our Christmas Eve dinner at home. I am stuffed. I cooked for us, rather than head out to the restaurants, and wasn’t really sure what was open anyway. Tomorrow I have got a few other things to cook, to add with what we already have ready. A long long time ago when both my parents were still living, the day after Christmas was always reserved for us to go to Cocoa and fish off the pier, or over to Daytona and fish off the pier. One time I almost froze to death it was so cold! We caught the fish though! I kept drinking hot chocolate and I was so cold I think half of the drink, splashed out of the mug, from my chills and shaking. It was windy out there too on that one particular day I remember so well…..my husband to be, was there then too, he remembers….. Mama Mia December 24, 2017 at 6:41 pm My father- in- law taught me how to throw a cast net. We went crabbing too, lowering little wire traps tied with chicken necks in the middle of the traps, and would wait and pull them up, and have several blue crabs and this went on and on until we had a lot of them. You could see lots of crabs swimming across the surface of the water. They liked to eat them, but I didn’t like the taste of them at all. Most of the time they used them as bait to catch reds and drums. I have never been a big seafood person, but my husband loves seafood, as well as my father, who loved seafood, and my father- in- law did too. I did like drum and flounder, but NO NO NO to mullet. The absolute worst tasting fish I ever had! Smoked mullet are not for me!!! Looking back it is funny to me, that my daddy, my father-in-law, and my husband, were or are, a lot alike. December 24, 2017 at 7:05 pm Did you all hear about that wreck where two semis were involved and one truck had live fish that spilled out all over the highway and cars were running over the fish, as they flapped around making a slimy mess. Not exactly the drivers’ fault, that were approaching the wreck, as you don’t expect live fish to be out there in the roadways. They were tilapia. I wonder where those live tilapia fish were heading? They never said in the news???? This was on the I-4 eastbound in Orlando on Friday. Today riding on Poncan Road heading west past the NOCIA building and grounds, right past there on the same side, the right side, I saw the most beautiful large camellia bushes in full bloom. First there were some at an entrance to someone’s place, and then further on down the road a little ways, were lots and lots of large camellia bushes planted along inside a fenced in area, that was so beautiful to see with all the blooms on them here at Christmas time! I have been by there so many times, and knew they were camellia bushes, but they were not in bloom then. They are so pretty! Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Mama Mia Reply Mama Mia Yes rabbi, Bok Tower Gardens is a beautiful and special place. I love going there. It is sad that there are those in power, federally, statewide, and locally, who do not appreciate and defend our public lands and National Parks for future generations of our young people to enjoy like we did. Treasures, right under our noses, more valuable than gold, but they like the gold better, as it is all about just how much money $$$$$$$ they can extract from the park lands and other public lands. The pirating of our assets, the robbing and raping our natural resources, and the destroying of God’s creation…..also the slaughtering of wild burros and horses that have been around ages on our public lands, set aside through acts of Congress for them to remain there, and ignoring those laws and removing them and sending them to slaughter! Before I moved here to Florida I used to go fishing my daddy at the river, out on the huge boulder rocks that were there, and fished for carp. The water was extremely deep, and he used a homemade dough recipe and made dough balls that he baited on the hooks. It had cotton, flour, water, molasses, and maybe some corn meal, I am not sure, it was ages ago, but I made it for my daddy to fish with, as he taught me how to make the dough, to fish the bottom of the river. He caught some big carp that had the biggest scales on them! Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. It is really hard to catch fish over at the coast now days. I think it is due to the mile long nets they have out there everywhere. Wiping out all the fish! Plus the pollution that seems to have increased all spilling into the ocean waters. I really have to wonder what is store, for our oceans in the future.

Web-based key recovery service aims to boost regular giving

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 6 July 2006 | News Professional fundraising organisation Fundraising Initiatives has announced Key2Giving, a new web-based key recovery service that aims to increase the number of donors giving a regular gift. The tool will be unveiled at next week’s Institute of Fundraising National Convention in London.Key2Giving is designed to take advantage of the trend for “tangible giving” by providing donors with a service that returns lost keys to them from anywhere in the country.For a donation of £5 a month, individual members of the Key2Giving scheme will receive an engraved key fob, which is branded on one side with their charity’s logo and has a Freepost address on the other side. Should the keys be lost, anyone finding them can simply drop them in a post box and the keys will be returned to their owners. Advertisement As well as individual membership, Kye2Giving offers dual membership at £8 a month for two key fobs, and household membership at £12 a month for up to four fobs is also available.Key2Giving will be promoted both online and by Fundraising Initiatives’ face-to-face and door-to-door fundraising teams, with the main recruitment vehicle being the key2giving.co.uk website, on which participating charities will have their own microsite. The company believes this new service “will make cost-effective, risk free regular giving available to all charities.”Fundraising Initiatives’ deputy managing director Anne Bolitho said: “The problem with establishing a committed programme for small charities is that it can involve substantial investment upfront, for example with direct mail or DRTV.“But Key2Giving will be self-financing for charities. It is a genuine ‘no-win, no fee scheme’ as, apart from a small set-up fee, charities only pay for the donors we recruit once they have banked their donations.”She sees Key2Giving as “not just a simple tactical fundraising tool. It is a strategic fundraising mechanism that will have wide-ranging effects on how small charities conduct their fundraising.”A pilot trial is currently ongoing with mental health charity Guideposts Trust, with donors recruited through face-to-face and door-to-door fundraising, and other confirmed member charities are Childlife, Pattaya Orphanage Trust, The Connection at St Martins, and the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity.Key2Giving is similar to an established key recovery service that has been run by Canadian armed services charity War Amps since 1946. During that time, more than one million sets of lost keys have been returned to Canadians through War Amps’ ‘Key Tag’ service.

While there are many books that suggest philanthropy can change the world, few provide a hands-on guide to the actual process of funding – how to select a method for supporting social projects and what business methods to adopt in doing so. How do you really ensure that your assets will achieve maximum impact and efficiency?The Business of Giving tells you how. It explains, in practical terms, the systems and processes philanthropists need to adopt in order to achieve their goals. It provides a ‘toolkit’ for philanthropic investment, taking you through each stage of your decision making. The techniques given are equally applicable whatever investment vehicle is being utilized; from traditional grants to new products such as social bonds and impact investing.As well as proposing an innovative model for implementing philanthropic giving as an integrated system, the author also provides a comprehensive review of the state of philanthropy today; outlining current thinking on its effectiveness and presenting a critique of different philanthropic styles.

Neighbors celebrate the 33rd year of National Night Out

first_imgprintFort Worth residents in nearly every neighborhood turned on their porch lights on Tuesday for the 33rd year of National Night Out.Neighbors gathered at more than 190 block parties to meet with Fort Worth police officers, firefighters and city officials.For the residents of the Westcliff neighborhood, NNO was an opportunity to visit with neighbors outside their houses and connect with police officers on a deeper level.Susan Thornburgh, who has lived in the Westcliff neighborhood for more than 22 years, said this opportunity is crucial.“We don’t always get a chance to get out and visit people,” Thornburgh said.Thornburgh was one of 50 neighbors who amassed in the parking lot of the Westcliff shopping center from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday.Spanning about five parking spaces long and two rows wide, the party was bustling with activity.Westcliff Neighborhood Association president Loren Baxter talks with vendors from Chase.A car parked with its trunk gaping open provided the perfect seat for Sal Ann Sauer, a neighbor who had collected donations from local businesses for raffle prizes.Every 15 minutes, her voice rang clear over her microphone announcing the winner of another raffle drawing.Meanwhile, residents strolled past tables laden with information pamphlets, goodie bags and stationery marked by the cardinal bird mascot of the neighborhood.A boy pulled on his mother’s arm as he motioned toward the fire truck sent from Fort Worth Fire Station 21. Excitement was in the air.Caught up in the middle of the activities was neighborhood police officer Charles Gonzalez, who was handing out police sticker badges and educating residents on crime prevention.Neighborhood police officer Charles Gonzalez talks with president Loren Baxter.Gonzalez is in his 16th year of working as a neighborhood police officer. To his credit, he attends all the neighborhood meetings in the area he patrols.He said he strives to make connections with the community, and it seems to be paying off.“The people here love the police,” Gonzalez said. “They’re incredible.”Gonzalez attributes this camaraderie to FWPD’s neighborhood police program, which assigns one officer to a specific area of Fort Worth.“You have one officer you address issues with,” Gonzalez said. “I address the issue. I make the follow-up connections.”Those connections made an impact on Thornburgh.“The police here are top notch,” Thornburgh said. “We know them. They’re a part of our community.”NNO is a police-community partnership event that focuses on generating support for local law enforcement and strengthening neighborhood spirit.

Ozod Ovoz website blocked

first_img Reporters Without Border called on the Uzbek government today to comment on the blocking of the Internet website of a local freedom of expression group, Ozod Ovoz, which often carries criticism of Uzbek President Islam Karimov. The authorities regularly censor such critical news websites. Ozodovoz.org, launched in April as an outlet for those who want to protest online about lack of freedom of expression, has been inaccessible in Uzbekistan since 2 September, from both private homes and cybercafés. Ozod Ovoz said anti-Karimov messages were posted on the site shortly before it was blocked.The website, based in Azerbaijan, is thought to have been blocked in Uzbekistan by the state-run Internet service provider UzPAK, which has a near-monopoly of Internet access. Those trying to connect to the site get a message saying access is not authorised. Ozodovoz.org editor Bobomurod Abdullaev said he was no longer able to update the site. But CASCFEN, a press freedom network in Central Asia and the southern Caucasus that Ozod Ovoz belongs to, said its staff in Azerbaijan were able to post material on the site.

He claims they simply can’t operate with one hut as they would not have enough space.“The other most critical problem also being that Nevsail will not be able to take any group bookings, such as sports teams, work outings, school tours etc, as there are both males and female arriving to us who need a separate changing facility,” Mr Neville explained.“Last week we alone, we had a school tour of 25 kids/teens that came for two days of activities with us, who then booked and stayed in Myles Creek guest house in Kilkee. These kids and teachers eat locally also.“We also had a school tour of 56 kids, both girls and boys, and there is just no possible way to look after this size of a group of people with just the one hut. So we are in real trouble here,” he confessed.Mr Neville went onto say that if Nevsail Watersports is not able to continue it could mean a serious loss of income, employment and services to the business.“I believe the wider communities and businesses in Kilkee and County Clare would suffer too,” he concluded.To sign their petition visit  https://my.uplift.ie/petitions/nevsail-watersports-forced-to-sink-because-of-clare-county-council WhatsApp Print Exercise With Oxygen Training at Ultimate Health Clinic Limerick businesses urged to accept Irish Business Design Challenge Email Limerick on Covid watch list last_img read more

Ocwen Acquiring PHH Corporation for $360 Million

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Ocwen Acquiring PHH Corporation for $360 Million Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago February 27, 2018 3,044 Views Ocwen Financial Corporation, an Atlanta-based financial services holding company, today announced a definitive agreement under which Ocwen will acquire all of the outstanding shares of PHH Corporation, a mortgage platform with established servicing and origination recapture capabilities, for approximately $360 million in cash. The purchase price represents a 35 percent discount to PHH’s GAAP book equity at December 31, 2017.On a combined basis, as of December 31, 2017, the company would service 1.9 million loans with an unpaid principal balance of $328 billion and originate over $3 billion of residential mortgage loans, including reverse mortgages, annually. Ocwen projects that the increased size and scale of the combined company should create various strategic and financial benefits, including:Accelerating Ocwen’s transition to an industry-leading servicing platform,Improving servicing and origination margins through improved economies of scale,Reducing fixed costs (on a combined basis) by eliminating redundant corporate overhead and public company-related costs, andProviding a superior foundation to eventually enable the combined servicing platform to resume new business and growth activities to offset portfolio runoff.It is anticipated that at closing, which is expected to occur during the second half of 2018 following various required approvals, there will be sufficient available cash on PHH’s balance sheet to enable $260 million of the $360 million purchase price to be funded out of PHH’s available cash, while providing for sufficient additional liquidity to fund its operations going forward. Ocwen will also assume $119 million of PHH’s outstanding corporate debt.Ron Faris, President and CEO of Ocwen, said, “We are very pleased to announce the proposed acquisition of PHH, a leading non-bank servicer. PHH is a high-quality servicer with complementary capabilities and business lines to Ocwen, making it a great strategic match for us. In addition to providing significant scale benefits, this transaction gives us the opportunity to migrate to their existing BlackKnight LoanSphere MSP servicing platform more quickly and with less risk than had we just implemented the system ourselves. We are also excited by the opportunity to welcome the PHH employees to the Ocwen family and by the opportunity to bring our industry-leading and innovative loss mitigation capabilities to existing PHH servicing customers currently struggling with their mortgage payments.”Robert B. Crowl, President and CEO of PHH, said, “We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Ocwen, and we look forward to working with them to bring this transaction to a successful close. We are excited by the opportunity to build a stronger combined company for our servicing and subservicing clients, our borrowers, and our employees.”The acquisition is subject to various closing conditions, including PHH shareholder approval and regulatory and other approvals, and is targeted to close in the second half of 2018.Ocwen will host a webcast and conference call on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, at 8:30 a.m. EST to discuss the transaction during the company’s Q4 2017 and year-end 2017 financial results call. The conference call will be webcast live over the internet from the company’s website. To access the call, click on the “Shareholder Relations” section. A replay of the conference call will be available via the website approximately two hours after the conclusion of the call and will remain available for approximately 30 days.

Kraninger Nom Advances to Senate Vote

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Kraninger Nom Advances to Senate Vote Kathleen Kraninger took a step towards becoming the next Director of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection after a 50-49 procedural vote by the Senate advanced her nomination towards a full Senate vote. She will succeed Acting Director Mick Mulvaney at the bureau if her nomination passes the Senate vote next week.Kraninger’s nomination was passed by the Senate Banking Committee in August. During that hearing, Sen. Mike Crapo had said, “It is my hope that, if confirmed, Ms. Kraninger will be more accountable to senators on this Committee than Director Cordray was.”During her testimony, Kraninger hinted at pursuing a similar path as the current Acting Director Mick Mulvaney. She said that she had four initial priorities for the Bureau if confirmed as Director The first priority she said would be to make the Bureau “fair and transparent.”Secondly, Kraninger intends for BCFP to work closely with other financial regulators and the States on supervision and enforcement. Third, she said, “The Bureau must recognize its profound duty to the American people to protect sensitive information in its possession.”And lastly, she said that she would look at making the Bureau “accountable to the American people for its actions, including its expenditure of resources.”Kraninger is likely to follow the path set by Acting Director Mulvaney during his time at the BCFP. Mulvaney’s entry into the Bureau in November 2017 was a controversial one and has been in the news this year as much for the changes he’s brought to the Bureau as the controversies around them. From requesting $0 for the Bureau’s budget in Q2, and recommending four key changes to make the BCFP “more transparent and accountable,” to the more recent change of name from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, the Acting Director is expected to leave his mark before he hands over the reins to his successor.
