Casino is set to pay more than €700m for the Thai assets. Tesco, the world’s third largest supermarket by sales, had been tipped as a top contender for the purchase because it is the market leader in the country and has previously done deals with Carrefour, which is the world’s second largest supermarket group by sales. Carrefour had been looking for up to $1bn for stores in Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. The Malaysian and Singapore auctions are ongoing.

Mally Lloyd, de Massachusetts, lo escucha atentamente. Foto de Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City] Mientras el Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas (PB&F) se acercaba al 1 de julio, fecha límite del presupuesto, Michael Curry, el obispo primado electo le pedía a los miembros del comité que elaboraran un plan para ayudar a que la Iglesia “pusiera a Jesús al frente”, compartiera las buenas nuevas e hiciera discípulos.“Me refiero al movimiento de Jesús, de la evangelización, de hacer discípulos y de nuestro testimonio a través del servicio público y de la promoción social pública”, dijo Curry al comité durante una breve conversación en el transcurso de una reunión a las 7:30 A.M. “Eso puede sonar como retórico sin auténticas consecuencias, pero permítanme asegurarles… que estamos hablando de la Iglesia que avanza, que toma la evangelización en serio —a la manera episcopal, pero tomándola en serio porque hay una buena nueva que compartir. La hay de veras”.El servicio personal y el testimonio público y la promoción social “es lo que hacemos; ese es el movimiento de Jesús”, dijo Curry.El obispo primado electo, que le recordó al comité que su período no comienza hasta el 1 de noviembre, dijo que el PB&F está haciendo la obra de Dios. Él comparó el trabajo de los miembros al de Pedro y Pablo, cuya festividad la Iglesia celebra el 29 de junio, diciendo que según la palabra de Jesús se extendía de Jerusalén a Roma y luego a todo el mundo conocido en esa época, los líderes tuvieron que organizarse y decidir cómo compartirían sus recursos.“Tuvieron que tener su propio PB&F para solucionar cómo su distribución y sus fondos se usarían para cambiar el mundo”, dijo Curry. “La obra que hicieron en el siglo I es la obra que ustedes están haciendo en el siglo XXI. Dios les bendiga”.Curry dijo que el comité tenía la ardua tarea de resolver de qué manera el movimiento de Jesús puede “traducirse en realidades prácticas y concretas desde el punto de vista del presupuesto”.“Pongan a Jesús al frente. Pongan por delante la divulgación de esa buena nueva. Pero formando a nuestro pueblo como seguidores de Jesús —como discípulos de verdad— al frente de ello”, sugirió. ¨Luego pónganse a inspirarlos y capacitarlos para servir en sus vidas personales, y para que nosotros demos testimonio en la plaza pública, en el frente. Esa es la Iglesia; ese es el movimiento. Sé muy bien que los movimientos pueden flotar en el aire si no se encarnan en la realidad.El obispo de Nebraska, Scott Baker, le preguntó a Curry si él ve cambios específicos en las estructuras de la Iglesia de manera que el PB&F pueda cumplir el presupuesto del trienio 2016-2018 que está elaborando para someterlo a la consideración de la Convención. El obispo primado electo, a su vez, le preguntó a la presidenta del PB&F, Rda. Canóniga Mally Lloyd, de Massachusetts, si el comité había participado en alguna conversación con el Comité Legislativo sobre Gobierno y Estructura de la Convención.Ella le dijo a Curry, “estamos de algún modo trabados” entre tener que ajustarnos a las normas que rigen la labor del PB&F y esperar obtener lo que llamó una “hoja de ruta” a partir del debate y de los cambios estructurales de la Convención [y] cómo esos cambios se llevarán a cabo en el trienio 2016-2018, “y dejar al Consejo Ejecutivo que se las arregle con el presupuesto que tenemos que presentar”.La Convención General aprueba el presupuesto trienal, y el Consejo con frecuencia revisa los tres presupuestos anuales, basándose en los cambios que se producen en los ingresos y en los gastos.Curry, que formó parte del Equipo de Trabajo para Reinventar la Iglesia Episcopal (TREC), dijo que no sabe lo que la Convención decidirá acerca de los cambios estructurales. “Pero puede haber algún modo de anticipar algunas de esas posibilidades creativas… de manera que el Consejo pueda girar cuando lo necesite —que puede ser la decisión más sabía para avanzar”, afirmó.“Cuanto más espacio creativo haya, tanto más posibilidades para un sistema grande como este de girar con rapidez y emprender lo que debe hacerse”, recalcó.David Quittmeyer, miembro del PB&F y proveniente de la Diócesis de la Costa del Golfo Central, le preguntó a Curry si él tenía en mente algunos puntos de giro a los cuales el comité debiera prestarle atención.“No sé lo que ocurrirá ni con la que vamos a terminar al final del día”, dijo Curry, añadiendo que la “parte decisiva” será que dimensiones de las recomendaciones del TREC “tendrán la capacidad de servir a este movimiento del que hablábamos”.Curry sugirió que los miembros del PB&F se preguntaran “qué le permitirá a la comunidad denominacional energizar y equipar a nuestras comunidades diocesanas y locales para participar realmente en la evangelización”.“Creo que esta misión ha logrado impulsar la organización”, afirmó, añadiendo que en las estructuras denominacionales “hay algunas cosas que están dadas, pero hay otras cosas que no están dadas”.Él les pidió que consideraran “cambios que van a facilitar nuestra capacidad de remontar rápidamente y de participar seriamente en la evangelización”.El PB&F está contemplando cómo adaptar el anteproyecto del presupuesto del trienio 2016-2018, de $120 millones balanceado por el Consejo Ejecutivo, que se aprobó en enero. El anteproyecto del presupuesto del Consejo se compiló después que los comités, comisiones, agencias y juntas de la Iglesia presentaron sus informes a la Convención que contenían resoluciones de financiación. Algunas de esas solicitudes se han enmendado aquí en la Convención. Además, muchas nuevas resoluciones presentadas desde que el Consejo aprobó su presupuesto también solicitan dinero a ser incluido en el presupuesto 2016-2018. El PB&F deberá decidir cómo financiar todas esas solicitudes que están ante la Convención.El PB&F usará los comentarios que ha recibido de las dos audiencias y de las sesiones del comité durante las cuales ha oído las opiniones de episcopales invitados a discutir las partidas de su presupuesto, el anteproyecto presupuestario del Consejo y cualquier legislación aprobada o sujeta a la consideración de la Convención General para crear una propuesta presupuestaria final. Ese presupuesto debe presentarse a una sesión conjunta de la Cámara de Obispos y de la Cámara de Diputados a más tardar el tercer día antes del programado fin de la Convención. Según el programa provisional de la Convención, esa presentación tendrá lugar a las 2:15 P.M., hora local, del 1 de julio.– La Rda Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

  • Got Prediabetes? 1 in 3 Do … and Don’t Know It

Please enter your email address here The Anatomy of Fear Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter From Florida Hospital – ApopkaThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates more than 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, and another 86 million adults – more than 1 in 3 – are prediabetic.center_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here To this point, a study published online in the Journal of the American Medical Association last September stated nearly half of all American adults have diabetes or prediabetes.We sat down with Damon Tanton, MD, endocrinologist, with Florida Hospital to ask a few questions about prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes. Below are his responses.What is diabetes?Damon D Tanton, MDEndocrinology, Diabetes and MetabolismDiabetes is a disease that results in an abnormal rise in blood glucose (sugar) levels. This is also called hyperglycemia. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of this condition.So, what is prediabetes?Prediabetes – sometimes referred to as impaired fasting glucose (IFG), impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), or insulin resistance (IR) – is a condition where your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, especially after meals, but not high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes.Are there signs or symptoms of prediabetes?The most common symptoms of insulin resistance are:Weight gain, especially around your mid-sectionCravings for sweets and carbohydratesExtreme fatigueSleepiness after carbohydrate-rich mealsLightheadedness or weakness when fastingUnexplained irritability, especially between mealsIrregular menstruation, increased miscarriage rate, infertilityA darkening of the folds of the skin, especially at the neck and groin [called acanthosis nigricans]So who’s most at risk for prediabetes?If you’re inactive and overweight, you should be tested. Other risk factors include:A close family member, such as a parent or sibling, who has diabetesAfrican-American, Latin-American or Asian/Pacific Islander descentElevated blood pressure, cholesterol or triglyceride levelsA history of gestational diabetes or polycystic ovary syndromeWhat can you do?If you’re concerned, ask to be tested at your next office visit, or schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider. He or she can order a simple, fasting blood test, similar to one drawn from those with diabetes.Will I develop Type 2 diabetes?Having prediabetes doesn’t mean you’ll definitely develop Type 2 diabetes. Without intervention, however, many patients with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes in the upcoming 5 years, according to the American Diabetes Association. If you have prediabetes, long-term damage— especially to your heart and circulatory system — may already be starting.What is Type 2 diabetes?High blood glucose (sugar) results when your body is no longer able to use the hormone, insulin, effectively — this is known as insulin resistance.At first, your pancreas – an organ located between your stomach and spine that helps with digestion – makes extra insulin to overcome this resistance.  Over time, however, the pancreas is unable to make enough insulin to keep blood glucose at normal levels.How does insulin work?Insulin transfers excess sugar from your blood to your cells to be used for energy. When your body becomes insulin resistant, sugar starts building in your blood, and this begins to cause damage to your blood vessels, nerves, and organs.So what’s the good news?Progression from prediabetes to type 2 diabetes isn’t inevitable.  You can prevent, or at least postpone, the conversion to diabetes.What can you do?With healthy lifestyle changes — such as eating healthy foods, regular physical activity, and maintaining a healthy weight — you may be able to reverse your blood sugar level back to normal.Research shows optimizing your lifestyle not only reduces your risk for diabetes, but does so even better than using medication. What’s more, improvements in glucose levels (and symptoms) may be seen in as little as three months.Source: National Institutes of Health; American Diabetes Association; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Florida Hospital Diabetes Institute Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Set atop a hilly site in an established North Toronto neighborhood and surrounded by traditional homes, the project is the result of a mixed brief from a professional couple keen on building a family home.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanWhile one partner is drawn to contemporary design, the other prefers traditional. This dichotomy surfaces throughout the design and construction process, providing numerous challenges and opportunities for creative solutions.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThis same tension is often visible in the market place, especially within the ubiquitous developer home, where modern living, open-concept interiors, and traditional architectural expression are at odds with each other. The Courtyard House sets forth a viable alternative to the standard developer home. It draws from standard construction methods, material palettes and vernacular domestic elements to create a contemporary architectural expression that is architecturally coherent.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanThe steep front grade of the property proved a challenge in siting the house. In an effort to maintain the height of the building relative to its neighbors, the second floor is merged into the roof form to create a dormer expression. On the interior, bedroom spaces feature sloped and carved ceilings that embrace the exterior form.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanSinking the main level of the house into the ground allows for the main entry to be integrated into the landscape, and the opportunity to build a beautiful front stair out of large, contemporary stone slabs. Save this picture!Section 1Large operable windows and sliding doors encourage natural ventilation, passive cooling and lessen the cooling load of the overall house, while providing ample natural light. The open plan allows the family to spread out, while custom millwork pieces create distinct spaces within the whole. The large windows and courtyard configuration allow the house to be experienced from many different angles, both inside and out.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanSet amongst large, traditional homes in an established neighborhood, the Courtyard House creatively integrates and composes traditional materials such as tumbled brick, cedar shingles, and wood siding into a formal language that is reflective of its open and contemporary interiors while respecting the visual cadence (roof lines, address, driveway, etc.) of the neighborhood.  Save this picture!© Tom ArbanThe architectural expression of the Courtyard House sets forth a viable alternative to the standard developer home. It draws from standard wood-frame construction methods, traditional material palettes and vernacular forms to create a contemporary architectural expression that is coherent. Save this picture!© Tom ArbanUnlike its neighboring buildings, also situated on large plots, the shallow floor plate of the house takes advantage of the wide lot. The traditional components and layout of the house are redistributed and reoriented around a central courtyard which capitalizes on the unique lot.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanTherefore, a hybrid approach is suggested – instead of a strong modern aesthetic (flat roof, white walls, etc.), one that embraces traditional materials and construction with the demands of modern living is suggested. Instead of alienating its neighbors, the house respects and engages them.Project gallerySee allShow lessPlayHouse / Street Monkey Architects + BjerkingSelected ProjectsHow Supercomputers are Shaping the Future of our CitiesArchitecture News Share Courtyard House / Studio JCI Year:  Architects: Studio JCI Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeStudio JCIOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTorontoWoodHousesCanadaPublished on March 29, 2015Cite: “Courtyard House / Studio JCI ” 28 Mar 2015.

  • Black and Brown unity in Alabama

    first_imgBlack and Brown unity at Voting Rights March, Shelby County, Ala.WW photo: Minnie Bruce PrattColumbiana and Gadsden, Ala.“Forward ever, backward never! Not one step back!” shouted over 100 people in Columbiana, Ala., on the morning of June 20 at the first annual march for restoration of voting rights. The Alabama NAACP and the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice called the action.The Black and Brown unity crowd was protesting the U.S. Supreme Court strike-down of part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act last year, as well as the growing right-wing assault on voting access in the U.S. Speakers made clear these attacks are racist in intent. One said, “The Klan doesn’t wear white robes anymore. They wear black robes and they are in the courthouse.”Columbiana is the county seat of rural Shelby County, now a “white-flight” suburb of Birmingham complete with McMansions, horse farms and up-scale housing developments with names like “Old Ivy.”Its all-white Board of County Commissioners won the suit to gut the Voting Rights Act by removing Section 4, which had mandated that states with a history of racist discrimination in voting must have any voting law change OKd by the federal government.Marchers saw the attack on voting rights as an attempt to wipe out hard-won victories of the Black Civil Rights Movement, known worldwide through the Selma struggle, only 60 miles to the south.NAACP Shelby County President Rev. Kenneth Dukes had stated previously: “Shelby County has become the new Selma. Not because of the brutality. But because we’re still here fighting for the same things, fighting the same battle.” Dukes is a bus driver for the Montevallo school district.Ben Monterrosa, of the California-based, Latino/a-focused Mi Familia Vota, thanked all those who had “fought the fight” for many years for voter rights. He stressed: “We can not depend on the courts or elected officials — but on ourselves. Strength in unity!” Other speakers emphasized the importance of wresting back local community control of decisions about education, health care and jobs.As the march wound through the tiny town to the courthouse on a street lined with police cars, we sang civil rights protest songs updated to “Ain’t gonna let the Supreme Court turn us around” and “We shall overcome — today.” Marchers included American Federation of Government Employees members; the Montgomery Mu Nu alumni chapter of the traditionally Black men’s fraternity Omega Psi Phi; representatives from the traditionally Black Alabama Education Association; NAACP Women in Network members; and officers from Birmingham, Calera, Jemison, Montevallo, Troy and elsewhere.ICE out of Alabama!That afternoon, 90 miles north in Gadsden, over 50 people protested in front of the Etowah County Jail/ICE Detention Center. The demand was “No more cages in Alabama!” The county has a contract with U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement to jail more than 300 men detained because of their immigration status.The protest, “Chant down the walls,” was part of a series of concerts and demonstrations at detention centers begun in Los Angeles by the National Day Laborer Organizing Network. On the parking lot in front of the jail, Los Jornaleros del Norte (Day Laborers of the North), part of NDLON, played traditional Mexican ballads about worker struggles as well as spirit-lifting salsa.On this blazing hot afternoon, protesters sang and called out to the incarcerated men in spite of the phalanx of police in front of the fortress-like building. Caroline Earhart, a member of the Huntsville Visitation Committee, held up a sign with the names of those who are now her friends inside the jail, and was greeted by thank-you signs in one high-up window: “Caroline, thank you from Robelto.”The men have come from all over the world and all over the U.S.; some have been jailed for many years. At the Detention Center they live in extreme social isolation, in conditions among the worst in the U.S., including no access to exercise facilities, recreation or educational programs, according to Detention Watch Network. In addition to DWN, groups participating were the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice, Southerners on New Ground and Birmingham Quaker meeting members. The Adelante Worker Center near Birmingham called the protest.Kenyan citizen and former Etowah detainee Sylvester Owino spoke at the rally, saying: “I spent nine years in immigration detention before finally winning my release in March. I am coming back to Alabama to let other detainees know that they are not alone, and we all must keep fighting. I also want the public to know more about the abuses that go on inside the Etowah Detention Center and the way those of us caught up in the immigration detention system are treated as less than human.”As recently as 2013, Gadsden was counted as one of the 10 poorest cities in the U.S., but the County Jail/Detention Center stands out on the aging street as impressively new and modern.The name of the street where the jail was built underlines how racism buttresses the U.S. prison system, both governmental and for-profit. The Etowah Detention Center is located on Forrest Avenue — named for Nathan Bedford Forrest, founder of the white supremacist Ku Klux Klan after the U.S. Civil War.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Each year, $3–5 billion in delinquent real estate taxes are offered for public sale. In a tax-sale state, delinquent taxes can be sold as quickly as within six months.Even in an upswing market, these are serious numbers, and investors must be vigilant to protect their assets. Delinquent and sold reporting is best monitored with real-time, accurate, and detailed information regarding delinquent and sold tax liabilities.First and foremost, you must have a firm grasp of the state-specific tax foreclosure and sale regulations. An investor must discern if the delinquent asset is facing a tax sale or a tax deed sale. In a tax-sale state, the asset can go to sale anywhere between six months to a year, and there is typically a redemption period for the owner before the loss of the property once taxes have been sold. A tax-deed state is a bit more generous and can take about three years, but they do not offer a redemption period once the property has been sold. Every state has its own specific rules, and the 50 states are comprised of over 26,000 taxing agencies. Risk is real but can be minimized with the expertise and knowledgeable assistance of a professional property tax service firm. It is imperative that any tax-service provider report the next critical date and actions that can be taken. There can be multiple payoff amounts, monthly penalty and interest charges, and loss-of-property dates. A strong and knowledgeable provider can assist with redemption and payments as well as third-party buyer negotiations.Strong portfolio management is also key to comprehending risk and exposure to unpaid taxes. Once again, seek guidance from the experts. With the right real estate tax provider, customer service and portfolio management will be of utmost importance. Find a company that will provide personalized and flexible service to fit your portfolio. Current as well as delinquent and sold taxes must be monitored daily. At a minimum, it is advisable to implement a tax-status update process and have comprehensive reporting available on a timely basis. Be certain that payment support is available at all levels to meet deadlines and deter additional penalties.
