In the third year of Sharing Faith Dinners, the Dioceses of West Texas, Fort Worth, Northwest Texas, North Carolina and a few individual churches across the country and even Canada joined the Diocese of Texas for the annual event.Sharing Faith began in 2012, fashioned after Houston Interfaith Ministries’ Amazing Faith Dinners, where people of different faiths gather for a simple meal and to answer questions about their faith experiences. The Diocese of West Texas joined in 2013 and the idea continues to spread.“It’s funny that we have to plan an evening to talk to friends about our faith, but each time I’ve done Sharing Faith, it’s been a gift,” said Carol Barnwell, director of communications for the Diocese of Texas. “To enjoy the hospitality of people I may not know is always lovely. And to hear the very personal experiences of God from others is a humbling experience. Each time, I feel like I’ve received a gift and each story allows me to see God in a new way.”Photo: Diocese of TexasThe evening is designed to promote listening. A moderator provides guidance for the group, allowing each person to speak without interruption or crosstalk. Every year, participants share stories of great joy and pain, moments when they questioned their faith, and moments when they were affirmed in their beliefs. Friends often share tears and laughter as they learn about each other in a new, deeper way.At an event in Houston’s Montrose neighborhood, parishioners of St. Stephen’s and St. James’ Episcopal churches gathered at the home of Carvel Glenn and Randall Lamb. A dozen participants shared jambalaya around a table and then chose cards that prompted each person with a question.“It was a night of sharing heartfelt stories and everybody was feeling safe enough to feel vulnerable,” Lamb said in his distinctive southern drawl. “It’s like one of our dogs, Aretha. She loves to have her belly scratched, and she will flop on the ground to expose her belly to be scratched. I guess everyone was just sort of flopping and having their belly scratched.”Stephanie Davidson, a member of St. Stephen’s, attended her first Sharing Faith Dinner at the home of Lamb and Glenn. “I learned something from every single person there,” she said. “Normally I’m the kind of person that would interject, but the format really allowed me to listen and learn. I really felt God’s presence among us.”In North Carolina, organizers designed their own question cards and named the event “Go Speak! Sharing Your Faith” in order to coincide with a wider diocesan theme. On the night of the gatherings, tornado and flood watches were in effect for much of North Carolina, but it didn’t seem to hinder participation. More than 40 percent of churches in the Diocese of North Carolina joined the event.North Carolina’s communications coordinator, Summerlee Walter, said the feedback has been extremely positive, especially among smaller churches. “We have a lot of very small, rural churches,” she said. “A large percentage of those churches participated. It was really nice to have a diocesan event that didn’t require travel and allowed those smaller parishes to feel they were a part of the wider diocese.”In a video posted by the Diocese of North Carolina, participants talk about their experience immediately following their dinners. One participant, Reid Joyner, admitted he had little experience describing his faith, but the environment helped him share. “The questions were really helpful for this Episcopalian that doesn’t find it particularly easy to talk about his faith,” he said. “But telling my story was easy, and I was glad to do it.”In homes and churches, and other creative places, Episcopalians learned a great deal about each other as well as themselves through the simple act of sharing a meal and sharing their faith.The Sharing Faith Dinners tradition will continue to grow in Texas and beyond.

11 things you can do to adjust to losing that 1…

There are serious health repercussions of this forcible shift in the body clock.Springing forward is usually harder that falling backward. Why is this so?People’s natural internal body clock and daily rhythms are slightly longer than 24 hours and every day, so we have a tendency to delay our sleep schedules. Thus, “springing forward” is going against that natural rhythm. It is like a mild case of jet lag caused by traveling east when we lose time and have a hard time falling asleep at an earlier hour.We co-lead a sleep evaluation center at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Childrens’ Hospital of Pittsburgh and take care of patients with different kinds of sleep disorders. We regularly see patients who are dealing with the effects of sleep loss. We fully understand what’s going on with them because of our in-depth understanding of how the sleep-wake processes work.Consequences of sleep loss varySleep loss from springing forward has been associated not only with sleepiness at work but also an increase in work accidents.fizkes/Shutterstock.comMany studies have now demonstrated that there is an increased risk of heart attacks, stroke and high blood pressure associated with sleep deprivation. Workplace injuries increase and so do automobile accidents. Adolescents, of course, find it harder to wake up in time to get to school.Is there something we can do to deal with this loss of sleep and change of body clock timing?Of course. The first step to dealing with this is increasing awareness and using the power of knowledge to combat this issue. Here are some quick tips to prepare yourself for the upcoming weekend.Do not start with a “sleep debt.” Ensure that you and your child get adequate sleep on a regular basis in the weeks leading up to the time change each year. Most adults need anywhere from seven to nine hours of sleep daily to perform adequately. Children have varying requirements for sleep depending on their age.Prepare for the time change. Start going to bed or putting your kids to bed 15 to 20 minutes earlier each night in the week preceding the time change. Also, move your wake timing during the week as this will help you fall asleep earlier. Aim for waking up an hour earlier on the Saturday before the time change.Use light to your advantage. Light is the strongest cue that helps adjusts our internal body clock. When possible, expose yourself to bright light early in the morning upon awakening. If you live somewhere where natural light may be limited in the morning after clocks change, use artificial bright lights to signal to your body clock to wake up earlier. As the season progresses, this will be less of an issue as the sun rises earlier in the day. Conversely, at night, minimize exposure to bright light, especially the blue light emitting from screens of electronic media. Turn off electronics even earlier than the usual recommended duration of one to two hours before bedtime. In some places, it might be helpful to have room-darkening curtains in the bedroom depending on how much sunlight that room gets at bedtime.Carefully plan your day and evening activities. Start planning your day the night before the time change with a good night’s sleep.Incorporate exercise in the morning and leave relaxing activities for the evening. This may help you to wind down. Take a walk even if it is just around the house or your office.Set an alarm for an earlier bedtime and earlier electronics turn-off time.Start with a protein-heavy breakfast, as sleep deprivation can increase appetite and craving for high-carbohydrate foods and sugars.Stop using caffeine after noon.Adults, decline that wine at bedtime.Try to be patient with your kids as they adjust to the new times. We all know that sleep deprivation impacts the entire family. Children are just as confused about this change as adults. Some kids have a harder time adjusting than others. You may notice more frequent meltdowns, irritability, loss of attention and focus. Set aside more quiet electronic-media-free time in the evening or maybe a 20-minute nap in the early afternoon while they deal with this change.Use electronics judiciously. Television, smartphones, tablets and video games are some of the perils of the world we live in. While there are benefits of this technology, especially in helping people stay connected, it can be disruptive at bedtime and in the bedroom. The blue light emitted from these devices signals our internal clock to wake up later the next day and shifts our body rhythm. It is a modern-day challenge that we have to constantly deal with preserving our natural sleep wake rhythm and our health.As the National Sleep Foundation celebrates its annual Sleep Awareness Week March 10 to 16, let’s pledge to uphold its theme to “Begin with Sleep” when planning for our day. A good night’s sleep is the recipe for a productive and fulfilling day.Deepa Burman, Co- Director Pediatric Sleep Evaluation Center and Associate professor of pediatrics, University of Pittsburgh and Hiren Muzumdar, Co-director, Pediatric Sleep Evaluation Center, University of PittsburghThis article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

Local newspaper owner is 4th Brazilian journalist to be murdered this year

first_img Help by sharing this information August 23, 2016 – Updated on November 3, 2016 Local newspaper owner is 4th Brazilian journalist to be murdered this year 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Follow the news on Brazil April 27, 2021 Find out more April 15, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns last week’s murder of local newspaper owner Maurício Campos Rosa in Santa Luzia, a town near Belo Horizonte in the central state of Minas Gerais, and urges the local authorities to leave no stone unturned until the instigators are identified and brought to trial. News BrazilAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Violence Receive email alerts Source: Facebook Reportscenter_img to go further Organisation BrazilAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Violence Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil May 13, 2021 Find out more RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America RSF_en News News Aged 64, Maurício Campos Rosa had just left the home of some friends on the evening of 17 August when he was shot five times with a revolver beside his newspaper’s vehicle. He died shortly after being rushed to hospital. The owner and editor of O Grito, a free local newspaper distributed on the streets of Santa Luzia for the past 20 years, Rosa also reported for the Diários Associados media group. A few days before Rosa’s murder, O Grito had reported that several local elected officials were illegally participating in a garbage collection cooperative.He is the fourth Brazilian journalist to be murdered this year, following João Miranda do Carmo, Manoel Messias Pereira and João Valdecir de Borba. “How many more Brazilian journalists will have to be murdered before the authorities seriously address the problem of violence against the media?” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America desk. “The Minas Gerais judicial authorities must do their duty and identify those behind this cowardly act. This latest murder has silenced not only a journalist but also an independent media outlet. It must not go unpunished and it must not be forgotten, as is so often still the case in Latin America.” The Santa Luzia municipal authorities have yet to comment on the murder. The police have opened an investigation and have so far not ruled out any possible motive. RSF joins the Minas Gerais Union of Professional Journalists (SJPMG) in demanding a swift and impartial investigation into Rosa’s murder in order to identify those responsible and to ensure that it does not go unpunished. Coinciding with the start of the Rio Olympics, RSF launched a campaign on 04 August to draw attention to violence against the media in Brazil. This latest murder unfortunately confirms that the federal authorities must urgently propose concrete measures to protect journalists and combat the impunity that still prevails in many of the country’s regions. Brazil is ranked 104th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index. last_img read more

Under the Memorandum of Understanding, Bionomics and EmpathBio propose to collectively explore a combination drug treatment regimen with Bionomics’ BNC210 and EmpathBio’s 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) derivative EMP-01. The parties will explore whether the different mechanisms of action of EMP-01 and BNC210 may offer the potential for developing an improved treatment regimen for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). BNC210 is Bionomics’ lead drug candidate, which has been granted Fast Track designation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of PTSD and other trauma-related and stress-related disorders. A new solid dose formulation of BNC210 has recently been developed and will be used in a Phase 2 study in PTSD, projected to commence in the middle of 2021. MDMA-assisted psychotherapy (two to three treatment sessions) has demonstrated significant symptom improvement in PTSD patients which continued at least 12 months post-treatment (Jerome et al., Psychopharmacology 237: 2485-2497, 2020). The FDA has granted a Breakthrough Therapy designation to MDMA-assisted psychotherapy, which is currently in Phase 3 trials being conducted by US not-for-profit organization, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). EmpathBio’s EMP-01 is one of 11 programs in atai’s pipeline. EmpathBio specifically focuses on developing MDMA derivatives that EmpathBio believes may permit the entactogenic effects of MDMA to be separated from some of the known adverse effects. If successful, such an approach could help minimize some of the transient physiological changes caused by MDMA, potentially expanding the pool of PTSD patients who will be medically eligible for the therapy. Bionomics’ Executive Chairman, Dr Errol De Souza, said “We are delighted to have entered into this exploratory collaboration with EmpathBio, which is looking at novel approaches to the treatment of PTSD. We consider that EMP-01, a derivative of MDMA, being developed by EmpathBio could be a very interesting treatment regimen when combined with BNC210 for the treatment of PTSD. Our entry into a Memorandum of Understanding with EmpathBio has drawn together an initial collaborative framework of preclinical studies, in which we can develop some deeply informed views about the possibility of a combination treatment regimen warranting clinical evaluation at a later date.” EmpathBio CEO, Glenn Short, said “We look forward to collaborating with Bionomics and the possibility of expanding the development potential of EMP-01 in combination with BNC210. Current clinical trials for MDMA carry a significant psychotherapy protocol which we could possibly re-evaluate with Bionomics’ BNC210 to reduce some of the unwanted side effects and improve patient outcomes. We are fortunate to be working with a Bionomics team that brings a wealth of scientific and clinical experience to the collaboration. Should the results of our exploratory studies support progressing to clinical trials, we will look to negotiate a legally binding definitive Agreement with Bionomics to conduct combination treatment regimen trials.” atai CEO, Florian Brand, said “We are extremely excited for Bionomics and EmpathBio to have entered into this collaboration, bringing incredible expertise together to explore how we might increase the efficacy of treatments for PTSD. This shared goal will allow us to advance our understanding of treatments as we evaluate this specific treatment regimen and the ways in which it may reduce unwanted side effects, with the ultimate mission of delivering increased optionality for patients.” About Bionomics Limited Bionomics (ASX: BNO) is a global, clinical stage biopharmaceutical company leveraging its proprietary platform technologies to discover and develop a deep pipeline of best in class, novel drug candidates. Bionomics’ lead drug candidate BNC210 is a novel, proprietary negative allosteric modulator of the alpha-7 (α7) nicotinic acetylcholine receptor. Beyond BNC210, Bionomics has a strategic partnership with MSD (known as Merck & Co in the US and Canada) and a pipeline of pre-clinical ion channel programs targeting pain, depression, cognition and epilepsy. www.bionomics.com.au About EmpathBio EmpathBio, a wholly-owned subsidiary of atai Life Sciences, is a preclinical biopharmaceutical company developing derivatives of 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA) for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other indications.

Extending Foreclosure Protections for Homeowners

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: The Ongoing Struggle of Pending Home Sales Next: Financial Services Law Firms Navigate Modern Challenges Foreclosure Mediation Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Act Rhode Island Senate Bill 2270 2018-06-27 David Wharton in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Government, Journal, News, Servicing Home / Daily Dose / Extending Foreclosure Protections for Homeowners The Rhode Island legislature has voted to extend the sunset provision on the state’s Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Act, which mandates “good-faith effort” mediation between lenders and homeowners facing foreclosure before that foreclosure can go forward.The Act, which was originally passed in 2013, was due to expire on July 1 due to its original sunset clause. It requires the lender and homeowner “to deal honestly and fairly with the mediation coordinator with an intent to determine whether an alternative to foreclosure is economically feasible.” The mediator must a member of a HUD-approved counseling agency and is required to serve as an “unbiased, impartial and independent coordinator” between the lender and homeowner.Rhode Island Senate Bill 2270 shifts the sunset clause of the Act back to July 1, 2023, extending it by another five years. A companion bill, House Bill 7385, would have removed the sunset clause entirely, but it stalled along the way. Senate Bill 2270 is now headed for the desk of Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo. Why was there a sunset clause on the original bill in the first place? According to The Jamestown Press, optimism. The Jamestown Press reports that “The sunset clause was added because legislators hoped the economy would bounce back stronger by now. The Jamestown resolution, however, says ‘while foreclosure rates have improved since the depths of economic crisis, the percentage of Rhode Islanders facing foreclosure today is still four times higher than pre-crisis rates.’”The AP reports that nearly 1,000 homeowners have sought mediation since 2013. Furthermore, Rhode Island Housing—the organization that administers the state program—more than 70 percent of the homeowners who have participated in the mediation program have come to terms with the lenders and were able to remain in their homes.According to The Jamestown Press, “Before the law took effect, Rhode Island had one of the least restrictive foreclosure procedures in the country. Lenders merely were required to provide notice to the homeowner of their intent to initiate foreclosure. They also had to post public notice of the foreclosure in a newspaper. There was no required court involvement and no requirement that lenders meet with borrowers to explore alternatives to foreclosure.”The housing crisis a decade ago saw nearly 10,000 Rhode Island homes go into foreclosure. Had the Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Act been allowed to expire, Rhode Island would have once again joined the handful of states that do not require a judicial or mediation process prior to foreclosure.
