I was in Terry’s first church Christ Church, Clifton, Bristol as a teenager and attended Clifton High School as a boarder, just over the road from the church. I became a Christian in my 6th form, partly through Terry’s preaching and through other friends at church who had been converted, and through the prayers of many unseen and unknown. I’m so sorry he has gone, he was always a great preacher, and so caring. Please send my belated sadness to Hazel and the family. I am still walking with the Lord, by His grace, and live in Bradford Yorks with my husband . We have 5 grown children and five grandchildren. With very fond memories of Terry and the fellowship I enjoyed there.

He was 78.He is survived by his wife, Hazel, and their four children: Julian, Joanne, Rachel and Michael, and their spouses, & nine grandchildren.A celebration of his life and ministry will be held July 13 at Heights Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Albuquerque. The family asks clergy to vest according to their tradition and process. Rio Grande Bishop Michael Vono and other diocesan officials will attend.Terence was born in Manchester, England, the seventh of ten children. His passion from a very early age was to serve the Lord, and he was called to be a preacher and teacher at the young age of 15 at a summer camp in the Lake District of England. After serving in Singapore and Malaya in the military he returned to the university, and then went to teach at the Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda, for two years. Just before he left for Africa he met his wife-to-be, Hazel, and they married on his return in 1962.In 1963 he followed his first calling, and went to seminary at Oak Hill Theological College, Barnet, and earned a Doctorate of Theology in 1967. He was ordained a deacon by the bishop of Bristol in 1967 and to the priesthood the following year. He served his first curacy at a university church, Christ Church in Bristol.After serving in a suburban church, St. John’s in Woking, and an inner-city church, The Christian Family Center in Bristol, in 1980 he was called to be Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology at Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, where he earned a Doctorate of Ministry at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in 1986.In 1989 he was elected dishop of the Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande and consecrated on March 4, 1989. According to the history of the diocese, as bishop “he decentralized some of the financial decision making of the diocese into the hands of the four deaneries, and also set a conservative agenda for the diocese. Funds were withheld from the national church, which mirrored the bishop’s and many others’ growing alienation. When issues of sexuality came to the fore, Bishop Kelshaw was highly visible, both locally and nationally, as a strong proponent of traditional values.“Bishop Kelshaw was among the bishops who filed a presentment against retired Bishop Walter Righter for the ordination of a man in a same-sex relationship, and he was a vocal opponent of the election of V. Gene Robinson as Bishop of New Hampshire. By the end of his administration, Kelshaw had ceased to attend meetings of the House of Bishops, which increased the alienation of the diocese from the national church. By his retirement in 2005 the diocese was perceived as one of the most conservative in the church. After his retirement, Bishop Kelshaw left the Episcopal Church for the Anglican Church of Uganda.His family’s obituary remarks that: “He will be remembered for the way he brought Scripture to life using his incredible knowledge of the Word. He served the Lord with great resolve teaching others about the love of Christ. The Bishop surrounded himself with children at the close of services to pronounce the blessing, a trademark of his love for the young ministers of the church. He will be greatly missed by family and friends.“Terence has run the race with courage and perseverance, keeping his eyes on Jesus, his Savior and Lord. Now he has obtained his athlete’s crown, and is with the saints in glory. Praise God.”Contributions may be made in lieu of flowers to Trinity School for Ministry, Kelshaw Student Scholarship Fund at 311, Eleventh Street, Ambridge, PA 15003.

A healthy diet isn’t always possible for low-income Americans, even when…

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom By Lindsey Haynes-Maslow, Assistant Professor of Agriculture and Human Sciences, North Carolina State University and first published on theconversation.comWhile researching how hard it is for low-income Americans to eat healthy on tight budgets, I’ve often found a mismatch between what people want to eat and the diet they can afford to follow. This made me wonder what eating right costs and how much of this tab gets covered by the largest federal nutrition program, commonly known as SNAP or food stamps.To find out, I teamed up with Kranti Mulik, an agricultural economist.MyPlate and SNAPWe based our nutrition assumptions on MyPlate, the federal government’s dietary guidelines, which account for differences according to age and gender. The guidelines spell out what you should eat from five food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy and protein – including meat, beans, eggs, tofu and other soy-based products, nuts and seeds.

But to estimate the monthly shortfall for people living in economic hardship who get SNAP benefits, we took into account, not just grocery prices and SNAP benefits but the effort eating home-prepared meals requires.This includes traveling to stores and shopping for ingredients, as well as prepping, cooking and serving meals and cleaning up afterward. To estimate this value, economists have used the average U.S. hourly wage rate, multiplying it by the time it takes to prepare meals. They find that labor is worth 40 percent of what Americans spend on food that they eat at home.For people who rely on SNAP benefits, the labor costs can be daunting. They may not live close to supermarkets or any stores that sell produce. They might not own cars and lack access to transit, and they might lack the basic cooking equipment needed to prepare meals.The government does not officially bill SNAP as covering everything that beneficiaries spend on food – that’s why the word supplemental is part of the program’s name. In 2016, however, it estimated that Americans could afford to feed a family of four a healthy diet for as little as $588 a month – less than the $649 that a family of four can get at most in SNAP benefits. Remember, this amount excludes the labor of preparing meals.We calculate that it would take about $1,100 per month, including labor, to keep food on this hypothetical family’s table. According to our calculations, SNAP covers about half – between 43 and 60 percent – of what following a MyPlate diet costs after taking into account the labor required for meal preparation.For households that purchase only fresh produce, grains, dairy and meat, this shortfall is much bigger than for those buying canned, frozen fruits and vegetables. Serving a meal of freshly steamed broccoli, whole-wheat pasta, and roast chicken costs more than heating up canned diced tomatoes and red beans to eat with white rice.Besides, many breadwinners who have to stretch their food dollars work multiple jobs or have other constraints on their time. For them, every hour spent on meal preparation can amount to an hour’s worth of pay lost.$600 more per monthBased on our model, we found that a family of four with two adults and two teens or tweens would need to spend more than $600 per month in addition to their SNAP benefits if they ate only fresh produce, grains, meat and dairy.That same household would need to spend almost $500 more than the maximum SNAP benefits if they ate a vegetarian diet with a mix of fresh, frozen and canned fruits and vegetables – and derived their protein from tofu and other soy-based products, beans, eggs, nuts, and seeds.Even excluding the labor, it takes to put food on the table, that family would need to spend at least $200 monthly on top of its members’ SNAP benefits to consume a healthy diet.

With the cottage restored to its former glory, the new extension meets the old with a touch of glass. Its palette is muted but precise, with crafted iroko timber glulams meeting sharp board-marked concrete walls. Together they form a restrained but striking palette that sits comfortably next to the detailed tiled faces of the cottage.Save this picture!© Adam CurrieThe finished scheme manifests itself as a new two-storey extension, with a separate garden room building. The double height space above the kitchen and dining area flow into the more secluded lounge. Looking out over the still pool and the retained mature trees, one encounters the garden room. A separate building, the garden room acts as a self-contained retreat, approached under a louvered timber walkway.Save this picture!© Adam CurrieSave this picture!© Adam CurrieEnvironmental concerns were considered throughout the project, with the concrete walls and flooring providing essential thermal mass, and green roofs reducing the water run-off and also filtering pollutants.Save this picture!© Adam CurrieThe result is a project that allows the architectural languages of the contemporary and Victorian to relate to each other and form a stimulating and respectful dialogue.

Harvard strikers show solidarity with COSATU

first_imgThe following abridged solidarity statement was sent to the Congress of South African Trade Unions by the Harvard University dining hall strike committee.To our sisters and brothers of COSATU,Our sisters and brothers of the Harvard dining hall workers of the UNITE HERE union Local 26 voted enthusiastically to send a solidarity message to you.We greet you with solidarity.For 40 years we have supported each other. During the appalling South African apartheid government, our members were arrested many times in the battles to stop Harvard University from supporting your enslavement by the apartheid government.Some of the same corporations we are fighting today — Goldman Sachs, Bank of America and Citigroup Bank — profited greatly from your slavelike work conditions. These corporations lead the Harvard Corporation, which controls all major decisions at Harvard.During apartheid, our dining hall workers refused to serve banquets for the South African apartheid government put on by the Harvard administration.To force the Harvard administration to stop their support for apartheid, we had a coalition with the Black students and others. This coalition put on a rally of over 5,000 workers and students to demand Harvard divest from enslaving you, and at this rally we had COSATU leaders speak. COSATU’s words inspired us, because you used that time to support our struggle and the strike that we were about to have.Our solidarity back then led us to have successful struggles. Today, we face the same opponents as then, from the Harvard Corporation to Johannesburg. Again it is the “less-than-1%” exploiting the “over-99%.”Our issues we are fighting for today — health care, retirement and layoffs — are similar to those of all workers of the world. Today, we are both on strike to stop this cruelty to workers.Again: Solidarity. A better world is in birth.The Harvard University Dining Hall Workers Strike Committee, UNITE HERE Local 26Ed Childs, Chief StewardFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Population size and status of the southern elephant seal (Mirounga leonina) at South Georgia, 1951?1985

first_imgThe elephant seal population of South Georgia was surveyed comprehensively during the 1985 breeding season. 87711 females and 10260 adult males were counted. The counts were corrected using a model of the haul-out distribution to adjust for date of count. Annual pup production was estimated to be about 102000. Counts made at various beaches on South Georgia between 1951 and 1964 were examined to compare pup production then with present data. Although the population has fluctuated substantially, the 1985 population estimate was very similar to the estimate based on an incomplete survey in 1951. This contrasts with the Indian Ocean and Macquarie Island populations of this species which recent surveys show to be declining.last_img read more
