October 29, 2014 at 12:33 pm Why was the story titled “GTS8 issue statement, clarify their efforts to return to seminary” pulled? It is listed on the email site but goes to a page not found page. Can’t we read both sides positions? October 14, 2014 at 5:44 pm A wise choice, indeed. October 14, 2014 at 7:48 pm …let’s hear Dunkle speak…I’ve wondered if the faculty is into cronyism…8 versus 1 to obvious…they sound like they want to lead…hasn’t the Episcopal church always cherished the individual over community…and the larger the community hopefully more qualified individuals that make it up…cut the obvious cronyiism…walk like an Episcopalian, with a brain in your own head…has the faculty heard of anything besides political theology? Susan Zimmerman says: Tags Theological Education Comments (14) Janet Campbell says: The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Zachary Brooks says: Rector Martinsville, VA October 16, 2014 at 7:07 pm It’s hazardous to compare academic institutions to corporations, I think. True, the content of the letter of the faculty to the board of GTS was certainly ill-advised. Had they written an entirely different letter, a message with nuance but not outright demands, we’d probably not be talking about this sad tragedy now. What’s left out of a critique of the faculty by many who are observing all of this from the outside, is that their treatment by the seminary’s administration may have been as bad as they have said. If the board was fully aware of how contentious the situation had become at GTS, and had done little or nothing to address it, then the board shares some of the blame as well.I think many of us would like to see a “happy ending” to this dispute, an ending that would somehow reinstate the faculty. It’s hard to know how this may happen, but it’s not an impossible outcome. October 14, 2014 at 10:49 pm No, the Episcopal Church does not cherish the individual over the community. We try to see persons in community and community in persons. Individual persons don’t even become persons in the absence of nurturing community. Our Church is much more naturally both/ and rather than either/ or. Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Shreveport, LA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA October 16, 2014 at 5:35 pm It doesn’t really matter who said what to whom. The departure of the Dean – fair or not – is the key to moving forward. Presidents and deans are supposed to prevent this kind of mess from ever getting to this point. This is a dispute between the faculty and the administration. It happens on campuses all over the country every week… and they get handled. This one has been needlessly turned into a national story that could bring down the institution itself. Don’t think for a minute that every bishop with a seminarian at GTS is not ready to pull them right now if today’s pow-wow does not produce a convincing plan for going forward.BTW worshiping on campus every day is part of the faculty contracts. If you are going to go on strike, you have to withdraw from every activity that you have been contracted to do. It isn’t about anything more than that.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Pittsburgh, PA [Episcopal News Service] Former Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold will facilitate the Oct. 16 meeting between trustees of the General Theological Seminary and eight professors whose employment is at the core of the dispute involving complaints about the conduct of the school’s dean and president.The General trustees agreed Oct. 13 during a teleconference to have the facilitated discussion with the aim of achieving greater clarity, understanding, and reconciliation, according to trustee Chair Bishop Mark Sisk (retired of New York).A meeting between trustees and the professors was already scheduled for Oct. 16. The addition of a facilitator is a new development, one apparently suggested by the eight professors and agreed to by the board. The board asked Griswold to fill that role.When Sisk wrote to the eight on Oct. 1 reiterating an offer he said had been previously made to the professors, he said the meeting had to be “wholly confidential, off the record, and no one involved will make use of anything said at it.”The conflict between the Very Rev. Kurt Dunkle, who became dean and president in July 2013, and eight of the 11-member faculty at the nearly 200-year-old seminary was made public late in September when e-mails and letters from the departing professors to students were circulated and the professors announced a work stoppage.Professors Joshua Davis, Mitties DeChamplain, Deirdre Good, David Hurd, Andrew Irving, Andrew Kadel, Amy Lamborn and Patrick Malloy wrote to the board on Sept. 17 to outline their issues with Dunkle. They outlined what the seminary later called “alleged inappropriate and harassing statements by the Dean.” The eight also said his management of the faculty and staff and his relationship with students has created a climate of “deep despondency, anxiety, hostility, fear, and retaliation” in the GTS community.The eight professors listed five actions they wanted trustees to take, including:* Appoint a committee of board members, to be determined by the faculty, to meet with the eight during the October meeting of the Board of Trustees;* Give faculty immediate oversight over the curriculum, schedule, worship, and overall program of formation for the seminary;* Hire an outside person for pastoral support to staff, students, and faculty; and appoint a dean of students;* “Restore and ensure” that faculty get due process in connection with appointments, worship and formation, and curriculum implementation and give the academic dean authority to “implement properly the academic program,” according to Association of Theological Schools (ATS) standards and the faculty’s Declaration of the Way of Wisdom; and* Hire a fundraiser to begin a capital campaign.“Simply put, we must respectfully inform you that if Dean Dunkle continues in his current position, then we will be unable to continue in ours,” the group told the trustees.A week later, Sisk wrote to the trustees, Dunkle and the faculty to say that the board had hired the law firm of Covington and Burling “to determine the basis for the alleged inappropriate and harassing statements by the Dean.”The next day the eight professors called that decision a refusal “to deal with the heart of the matter,” and announced that they would stop working beginning Sept. 26 and would not return to work until the board as a whole immediately scheduled a time to meet with them during the trustees’ October meeting.And they said they had formed the General Theological Seminary Faculty Union and hired an attorney.The executive committee of the seminary’s Board of Trustees said Sept. 30 that “after much prayer and deliberation and after consulting our legal counsel” its members had “voted with great regret to accept the resignations” of the eight faculty members.The professors have said they never tendered their resignations.The eight at the center of the controversy had been among a roster of 11 faculty members plus Dunkle. General now has four full-time faculty and 11 adjunct faculty, seminary spokesman Chad Rancourt has told ENS. This does not include any instructors who may be brought in to teach classes previously handled by the eight.Eighty-six students are matriculated for the current semester, Rancourt said. General expects to be able to complete all of its classes this term. Out of 23 scheduled classes, 13 were not affected by the departure of the eight professors. General has tried to cover the remaining 10, he said, “drawing upon our remaining full-time faculty and noted scholars in the New York City metropolitan area.”The school is currently on its fall break and reading days until Oct. 20. The trustee board is to gather Oct. 17 for its annual fall meeting.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Both sides have behaved badly, the dissident faculty by making extreme demands in the tone of an ultimatum and the trustees by claiming that the faculty had resigned and thereby firing them en masse. Hopefully the trustees and dissident faculty can find a way toward reconciliation, partly by repenting of these hasty, probably emotionally-driven deeds. It is hard, however, to see how the Dean’s ministry can be effective after all that has happened, regardless of the rights and wrongs of the situation.

October 16, 2014 at 1:56 pm The faculty at GTS received poor legal advice, and their initial letter, a list of demands, started this whole debacle. Employees in any business know better than to make the statement that if the boss continues in his position, they can’t continue in theirs. They didn’t leave the board room to maneuver, insisting that any meeting with the board include only people who the professors agreed to. What did they think would happen? Did they expect the board to crumble and accede to their demands? Fire the dean in the face of their threats? The foolishness of the faculty behavior distracts from their grievances. Their refusal to worship with their opponents was a particularly venomous act. I have no sympathy, Joseph D Herring says:

The Small Business Administration has approved $1.4 billion in loans to renters, homeowners and business owners. The National Flood Insurance Program has paid more than $919 million in claims to Floridians. The state of Florida offered $25 million to citrus growers through the Florida Citrus Emergency Loan Program and activated the Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan program. The state also provided 25 percent of the funding for the Transitional Sheltering Assistance program, which paid for short-term hotel stays for Irma survivors; 75 percent of the cost of TSA was paid by FEMA. In addition to support from the state of Florida and the federal government, survivors are receiving help from friends and neighbors who are pitching in to meet Irma-related needs.The state and federal governments have significant, but not infinite, resources. There are some things that government cannot fund, due to budgetary or legal constraints. Long-Term Recovery Groups may be able to fill those gaps by providing money, labor, and materials that address unmet needs.LTRGs are nonprofit, community-based organizations made up of volunteers, civic groups and residents of the affected area. The groups reflect the diversity of the community and focus on locally-driven solutions that will serve the people living in the community. By working together, LTRGs are able to leverage resources from a variety of sources like philanthropies, charitable organizations and faith-based groups who supply donated goods, volunteer labor and funding.As the groups began to form in the wake of Hurricane Irma, FEMA Voluntary Agency Liaisons crisscrossed the state meeting with local groups and offered technical assistance to the LTRGs. The Voluntary Agency Liaisons are experienced emergency management professionals who can share best practices from past disasters, guide LTRGs as they develop bylaws and committees and identify services that may be available to aid survivors.There are currently more than 20 LTRGs throughout Florida. LTRGs have helped survivors rehabilitate their storm-damaged homes using volunteer labor and donated building materials. In some cases, LTRGs have paid for supplies and equipment survivors need as they recover from Hurricane Irma. The groups also assess needs, offer information, and help survivors develop recovery plans.Volunteer Florida recently gave $5 million to fund LTRGs and agencies assisting survivors. FEMA and the state of Florida will continue partnering with the LTRGs as the recovery continues.For more information about a Long-Term Recovery Group in your community, please call 211.For more Hurricane Irma recovery information, visit www.FEMA.gov/IrmaFL.

OneBlood reports having over a 500% increase in hospital orders for plasma from recovered COVID-19 patients. “The need for these donors is enormous. They’re playing a key role in helping patients…”From AdventHealth Dr. Eduardo Oliveira, executive medical director for critical care services at AdventHealth was joined yesterday morning by Susan Forbes, senior vice president of corporate communications and public relations at OneBlood to discuss the critical need for convalescent plasma donors. Together they briefed the media during AdventHealth’s Morning Briefing on the latest COVID-19 information. The good news that was emphasized by Dr. Oliveira was that patients who have recovered from COVID-19 are eligible to donate convalescent plasma for others who are infected with the virus. “It’s bad news because you got COVID, good news that you recovered from it, and even better news that now you can help others recover who did not have the chance to produce those antibodies to defend themselves,” said Oliveira. “This is an all-hands-on-deck situation at OneBlood,” said Forbes. “We’ve had over a 500% increase in hospital orders coming in, so the need for these donors is enormous. They’re playing a key role in helping patients, and they are urgently needed to come forward to help. Donors really are the unsung heroes in our community who are playing a huge role in helping save lives.” Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate July 25, 2020 at 1:20 pm Reply TAGSAdventHealthConvalescent PlasmaCOVID-19Donors NeededOneBlood Previous articleKrystal Parker named President of Central Florida Christian ChamberNext articleAdult Literacy League shares need for volunteers to teach Central Floridians to read; Training end of week Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Mama Mia Convalescent plasma is plasma taken from fully recovered COVID-19 patients and used to help treat patients currently struggling with the coronavirus.

Mama Mia Forbes encouraged eligible donors to register at OneBlood.org for the convalescent plasma donation process. Convalescent plasma donations may be made every 28 days. Highlights from the briefingThe importance of convalescent plasma in treating COVID-19. Convalescent plasma has been used successfully for the past 50-60 years with some success and was used in SARS and MERS epidemics a few years ago. It is now helpful in treating COVID-19. Individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 have antibodies in their blood that help block the virus and their plasma can be used in transfusions to help others who are battling active infections. Convalescent plasma treatments lead to better outcomes for COVID-19 patients. AdventHealth has used convalescent plasma in nearly 300 patients in various stages of COVID-19. In some cases, it has kept the illness in patients from progressing to where they would need to be in the ICU. In cases where patients are very ill in the ICU or on ventilators, convalescent plasma has helped accelerate the healing process and helped patients recover much faster. OneBlood has an urgent need for recovered COVID-19 patients as plasma donors. As the blood provider for local hospitals, OneBlood is collecting convalescent plasma from people who have recovered from COVID-19, seven days a week. Potential donors are asked to register in advance on oneblood.org and those who fit the criteria will be able to set up an appointment for collection.Dr. Oliveira said COVID-19 patients who receive convalescent plasma may also be treated with antiviral, steroid or other medications to treat the coronavirus. I would like to know what One Blood or the hospitals charge to “sell that blood” to patients in need. I bet it would astronomical to see it listed on a hospital bill for a corona virus patient. Maybe instead of such big bucks going to the CEO, they should pay donors for their donations of this needed supply of blood, since so many people are in dire need due to the covid-19 pandemic, and for being out of work trying to survive. I just see the word “donate”, with no info about compensation for the convalescent plasma….??? It is my belief that if a good person donates to help someone fight off the virus, and that blood bank doesn’t pay the donor anything, then the blood band and the hospital should not charge anything for that blood to be given needy patient, in a life or death situation….just saying. Can’t even get a movie ticket for donating blood now….what movie places are open? Country has gone to hell…..I see they are going to open a drive- in theater on a lake in Orlando somewhere, and people are going to pay to get in small boats, that hold 8 people, and gather around out on the lake, and watch the movies from the waterway, and will get free popcorn…lol, and can purchase other snacks and drinks. I bet they will bring their own liquor flasks along ….lol Sure will be a B, if someone out of those 8 or so in the boat, has to go to the restroom, and go back every time to the potty, or worse, someone letting it all hang out, and go in the water, standing up from the boat??? lol You have entered an incorrect email address!

We urge the international community to forcefully condemn their detention.”Reporters Without Borders added: “There can be no justification for remaining silent in the face of these flagrant violations of freedom of information, not even the ‘respect for sovereignty’ that the Chinese government repeatedly cites in response to criticism of its repressive and discriminatory policies towards Tibetans.”A Tibetan exile known only as Tharpa told Reporters Without Borders that he learned from two local sources that Kalsang Choedhar, a monk from Palyul monastery, was arrested in the market in Sog, in eastern Tibet, on 12 October for circulating information about a two-week-old crackdown by the Chinese authorities in Driru county.Choedhar’s mobile phone was confiscated following his arrest and he is currently being held incommunicado in an unknown location. Hundreds of Tibetan monks from Palyul monastery demonstrated outside Palyul county government offices and a police station to demand Choedhar’s release. Officials said he had been transferred to Chamdo.Tsultrim Gyaltsen, a 27-year-old Tibetan writer who uses the pen-name of “Shokdril,” was arrested in Khardrong, in Driru province, on 11 October, and a 25-year-old associate known only as Yulgal was arrest the next day. Both are accused of “political activities aimed at destroying social stability and dividing the Chinese homeland.” Their current place of detention and physical condition are not known.Gyaltsen’s computer, mobile phone, books and other personal effects were confiscated by Chinese security officials who went to his home at 1 a.m., witnesses said.A former monk, Gyaltsen has written two books about Tibet and used to edit a Tibetan-language magazine called The New Generation. Yulgal is a former Security Bureau officer who resigned because of the “political” nature of his work.The manner in which the three are being held is similar to that use with Lobsang Namygal, a Tibetan poet also known by the pen-name of “Sangming,” who has been held incommunicado ever since his arrest on 15 May 2012 for publishing the Dalai Lama’s banned speeches and other politically sensitive works about Tibet.Namygal’s detention was kept secret for more than a year. His family knew absolutely nothing about his whereabouts until March 2013, when they learned that he was probably being held in Chengdu prison (in Sichuan province) although they still did not know why.It was only in September that the authorities confirmed that he was being held in Chengdu and gave the grounds for his arrest. They also confirmed that he was not permitted any visits. He still has not been allowed to speak to a lawyer or receive visitors.An employee of Chengdu’s Buddha Cultural Centre until his arrest, Namygal is the author of a book of poems that express his views and arguments in favour of Tibetan independence. He was previously held for a year after being arrested in 2008 in connection with demonstrations in Lhasa linked to the Beijing Olympics.The situation of news and information providers is worrying throughout China but particularly in Tibet, where any criticism of the Chinese authorities is severely punished.Chinese embassy officials in Thailand directly threatened the French journalist Cyril Payen after France 24 broadcast his documentary “Seven Days in Tibet” in May and tried to get the TV station to remove it from its website.China is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Enemies of the Internet” and is ranked 173rd out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

The spot centers on Gordo’s background, highlighting his humble beginnings of growing up while living in a local Pasadena garage and delivering the Pasadena Star-News — experiences that inspired his life’s work: fighting for working families as an attorney who represents local working people and representing his neighbors on the Pasadena City Council.To view “Garage” click here or on the image below:Since launching his grassroots, people-powered campaign for mayor, Gordo has amassed widespread support from hundreds of Pasadena community members, neighborhood leaders, and the Pasadena Firefighters Association, IAFF Local 809. He’s also won over former Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, who is co-chairing Gordo’s campaign. In the March primary election, Gordo finished in first place with more than 46 percent of the vote, defeating the incumbent and two challengers. However, he was unable to win 50 percent plus one vote to win the seat outright, forcing the Nov. 3 runoff against Tornek.“We’re getting our message out leading to November,” Gordo said. “I have seen Pasadena at every level, from the garage to the board room at the Rose Bowl to City Hall. I know this city well from many vantage points.”For more information please visit www.VictorGordoforMayor.com.

More Cool Stuff Community News L.A. County Sees Record High Number of Daily COVID-19 Cases at 7,593 Pasadena officials preparing for rollout of vaccines By BRIAN DAY Published on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 | 5:15 pm Top of the News STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Subscribe Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Make a comment Community News <span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”>?</span>Los Angeles County recorded the highest number of COVID-19 infections ever at 7,593, while health officials in Pasadena made preparations to distribute vaccines that are expected to become available over the coming months.Thirty-five new infections were detected in Pasadena on Tuesday, and no new deaths were reported, according to city data.The city has seen a total of 3,746 cases of the virus and 132 deaths since the onset of the pandemic in March.Over the prior week, Pasadena saw an average of 41.7 new infections each day, city data shows.Huntington Hospital reported treating 63 COVID-19 patients on Tuesday.While public distribution of vaccines is likely still months away, city officials are already making preparations for their arrival.“We are currently planning a multi-faceted COVID-19 vaccination campaign to ensure safe and equitable access once for all Pasadena residents once the vaccines are available,” Pasadena Public Health Emergency Manager Adrienne Kim said in a video statement.During the H1N1 flu pandemic of 2009, public health officials made successful use of Medical Points of Dispensing, or MPODs, to distribute vaccinations through the local community, she explained.“Since then, we have conducted MPOD exercises every year and have enhanced our plans to transform a location, such as a school, parking lot, or community center, into a large vaccine clinic and offer vaccines by drive-through or walk-up methods,” according to Kim.“Although we don’t expect COVID-19 vaccines to be available to the general public until well into 2021, the Pasadena Public Health Emergency Preparedness team has already been hard at work planning COVID vaccine MPODs,” she said. “We are securing sites, connecting with community partners, and of course, staying up to date on the rapidly involving information about the various vaccines our community may receive.”More information will be released as it comes, Kim said.“We will continue to communicate with you and keep you informed about when, where and how you will have access to a COVID-19 vaccine in accordance with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccine playbook,” she said. “In the meantime, we so appreciate everyone doing their part by washing hands, masking and social distancing.”The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced “the highest number of new COVID-19 cases and people hospitalized with COVID-19 that L.A. County has ever experienced throughout the pandemic,” the agency said in a written statement. Forty-six new fatalities were reported.The county has recorded a total of 408,396 cases of novel coronavirus and 7,700 deaths.“The number of new COVID-19 cases significantly surpassed the previous high of 6,124 new cases seen last week, and signals that the virus is infecting more people at a faster rate than ever seen in L.A. County before,” according to the statement. “The daily test positivity rate today is almost 12 percent, up from 7 percent one week ago.”Officials reported more than 2,300 patients were hospitalized with COVID-19 countywide on Tuesday, with 24 percent of them being treated in intensive care units, according to county health officials.“This exceeds the peak of 2,232 people hospitalized with COVID-19 during the July surge,” the county statement said. “The daily number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 has increased nearly every day since Nov. 1 when the daily number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 was 799.”L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer said the situation was bad. And it was almost certainly going to get worse.“Today, Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020, is the worst day thus far of the COVID-19 pandemic in Los Angeles County,” she said. “However, it will likely not remain the worst day of the pandemic in Los Angeles County. That will be tomorrow, and the next day and the next as cases, hospitalizations and deaths increase.”“Every resident and every business needs to take immediate action if we are to dampen this alarming surge. We are in the middle of an accelerating surge in a pandemic of huge magnitude,” according to Ferrer. “This is not the time to skirt or debate the safety measures that protect us because we need every single person to use every tool available to stop the surge and save lives.”State public health officials reported 12,221 new infections and 70 new deaths on Tuesday, raising the statewide totals to 1,225,189 documented cases of COVID-19 and 19,211 deaths.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior week had climbed to 7 percent, while the 14-day average was recorded at 6.5 percent, according to a California Department of Public Health statement.As of Tuesday, L.A. County represented 33 percent of California’s COVID-19 infections and 40 percent of the state’s fatalities.
