However, their restraint went out of the window when they spotted the wine list and, before they knew it, they had ordered some “superlative” bottles from the 1 Lombard Street cellar. The Capitalist hears the party enjoyed an “extremely rare” Egly Ouriet 1999, a bottle of Domaine Leflaive Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet from 2001 and a Chateau Leoville-Las Cases 1982 – the claret credited with sending sales of Bordeaux into orbit. To set the seal on their successful deal, the bankers chose a bottle of Chateau d’Yquem 1991 – the sweet wine that set the standard for Sauternes “perfection”. The bankers may not have got much work done for the rest of the afternoon, but at least no-one can fault their dedication for quality over quantity.

This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols.’ Our identity as Christians is to be in the place where Jesus stands, the place from which we can see into the boundless reality that is the outpouring of God’s life. Standing there, standing in the truth, is like standing under a waterfall: the life of God is around us, soaking and overwhelming us.We can’t grab it and hold on to it, we can’t contain it. The mystery of the Trinitarian life which we celebrate next Sunday is the mystery of just being immersed in this – the mystery of which baptism is such a fitting sign.And living in this mystery is the opposite of idolatry, because an idol is precisely what we have made and can manipulate. Idolatry is ultimately not the worship of things so much as the worship of myself – the reduction of God to the scale of my wants and my comfort. And it is horribly easy to take even the signs and witnesses of God’s truth and turn them into idols in this sense, into things that reinforce who I am or who we – as a nation, a class, a race – are.Quite literally, God alone knows what was going on in the head of the President of the United States as he stood outside a church this week brandishing a Bible, having walked to the church with his path cleared by tear gas and rubber bullets, posturing before a nation more tragically divided than it has been for decades, wounded at so many levels. But objectively this was an act of idolatry – standing somewhere else than in the truth, using the text that witnesses to God’s disruptive majesty as a prop in a personal drama. In a context where racial privilege itself has long been an idolatry, where long-unchallenged institutional violence has been a routine means for the self-defence of that privilege, the image of the President clinging to the Scriptures as if to an amulet is bizarre even by the standards of recent years.But as we look towards our celebration this coming Sunday, we have to ask about our own faithfulness in standing in the truth, our own idolatries, great and small, as individuals and as a society on this side of the Atlantic. Too easy to focus on that image from Washington as a sign of what’s wrong there; but what do we use to reinforce our status and comfort? How does the poison of privilege undermine our own integrity? – and yes, it’s a question that a place of privilege like the university or Magdalene College needs to be asking with some urgency.All of us are in some way touched by idolatry because we all inherit a human condition in which we are in thrall to the fear that we are surrounded by enemies, that we are all either winners or losers, that we have to earn our security at theexpense of our fellow humans. And this is the world of untruth from which we are rescued in the baptised life.So our calling is to go back again and again to stand under the waterfall; to remember that sensation of being unable to measure and contain what surrounds us, and to be reborn in the truth – not so that we can point fingers and judge but sothat we can simply declare and show that idolatry in whatever form traps us in a world so much smaller and drier than the real world, the world held eternally in the life of the Father, the Word and the Spirit. ‘This is the true God, and eternal life.’ Rector Washington, DC New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Youth Minister Lorton, VA Posted Jun 5, 2020 Rector Belleville, IL The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Tags Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Albany, NY Rector Hopkinsville, KY Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem center_img Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Curate Diocese of Nebraska Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Featured Jobs & Calls Submit a Press Release Anglican Communion, Submit an Event Listing Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Shreveport, LA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Tampa, FL Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Bath, NC Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Course Director Jerusalem, Israel In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Knoxville, TN Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA George Floyd Statements Cathedral Dean Boise, ID AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Trump brandishing a Bible ‘an act of idolatry,’ says former Archbishop of Canterbury Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 last_img read more

Broad Street House is new build home in Suffolk by Nash Baker Architects. The house utilises a palette of natural and traditional materials to blend with the rural street scene, and the exterior uses oak cladding and handmade bricks (both locally sourced) to blend with the architectural character of the village. To create a more distinctive look, the bricks were laid in a variation of ‘Monks bond’ using white iron-free sand for the lime mortar which was sourced from the local Wivenhoe pit. “We wanted to ensure that the architectural expression would be contemporary and of its time whilst in its materiality being nevertheless reflective of local vernacular traditions.”Save this picture!© Nick GuttridgeThe client’s brief was to replace the incongruous pre-existing 1980’s building with an exceptional contemporary home that was both sympathetic to the neighbouring properties, whilst still being of its time. They required an open plan living arrangement that on the ground floor would provide them with dedicated work rooms for their respective professional activities as silversmith and baker, and a first floor, that could take advantage of the natural daylight and the expansive views across the marshes to Orford Ness, and the coast beyond.Save this picture!© Nick GuttridgeIn contrast to the brickwork at the ground floor, the upper level appears lightweight, utilising ribbons of untreated oak cladding to wrap up and across a pitched roof. The oak cladding was sized to match the brick course dimensions, so that the two elements of construction have a complimentary design intent.Save this picture!© Nick GuttridgeSave this picture!Ground Flor PlanSave this picture!© Nick GuttridgeInternally, the house has a muted decorative scheme with exposed concrete ceilings complemented by a floor of whitewashed Douglas fir planks and fitted joinery made with lacquered birch faced plywood. Studio and office rooms occupy the left side of the ground floor layout, mirrored on the right of the rear reception room by an open plan kitchen area defined by a parallel wooden dining surface in walnut with expressed dovetail joints. The reception room opens out onto a red brick terrace and garden through a series of glazed sliding doors, mirrored on the upper storey where corresponding doors on the master bedroom and en-suite bathroom open out onto a covered terrace sheltered by the oak clad roof that gives spectacular views of the Orford Ness marshes and the Suffolk coast.Save this picture!© Nick GuttridgeThe careful specification of materials and technical detailing have created a dwelling which is sensitive to its historic setting, yet unashamedly modern.Project gallerySee allShow less”Floating Fields” Wins Shenzhen UABB Award And is Set to Continue Through 2016Architecture News“La Llena” Equestrian Center / Vicente Sarrablo + Jaume ColomSelected Projects Share Architects: Nash Baker Architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeNash Baker ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOrfordUnited KingdomPublished on March 17, 2016Cite: “Broad Street House in Suffolk / Nash Baker Architects” 17 Mar 2016.

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea Settlements with the federal government for mortgage servicing misconduct led to sharp year-over-year declines for Citigroup and Bank of America in both fourth quarter and full-year net incomes in 2014, according to Q4 2014 and year-end earnings statements for both banks released on Thursday.Burdened by legal and related expenses and repositioning charges, Citigroup reported fourth quarter 2014 net earnings that were only a fraction of what they were in the same quarter a year earlier. Citigroup reported net earnings of $350 million on $17.8 billion in revenues for Q4 2014, way down from the net earnings of $2.5 billion the bank rolled in for Q4 2013 on the same revenues, $17.8 billion. Net income per diluted share fell from $0.77 in Q4 2013 all the way down to a mere $0.06 for Q4 2014 for Citigroup.Bank of America reported relatively minor losses in the fourth quarter of 2014 with a net income of $3.1 billion on $19.0 billion in revenues compared to $3.4 billion on $21.7 billion in revenues in the same quarter of 2013.Both institutions had a rough year in 2014 on the regulatory side of things. In July, Citigroup settled with the Department of Justice for $7 billion over the sale of toxic mortgage-backed securities. A month later, Bank of America settled with the DOJ for a record $16.65 billion over similar matters. The money paid out in penalties and consumer relief in 2014 took a toll on year-end net incomes for both institutions.Citigroup’s full-year net income for 2014 was only slightly more than half of what it was for 2013 – $7.3 billion in 2014 compared to $13.7 billion for 2013. Revenues were similar, and were actually slightly higher in 2014 – $76.9 billion compared to $76.4 billion for 2013.”While the overall results for 2014 fell short of our expectations, we did make significant progress on our top priorities. During the year, we increased our market share among our target institutional clients, grew our core loan book, and improved both our net interest revenue and margin from 2013 levels,” said Michael Corbat, CEO of Citigroup. “For the first time since its establishment, Citi Holdings was profitable for the full year and we accelerated the utilization of our deferred tax assets. We strengthened our capital planning process and made Citi a safer and stronger institution, as evidenced by the increases to our capital, leverage and liquidity ratios. Although we made some difficult decisions over the course of the year, I believe they allowed us to put our franchise in a position to have a successful 2015.”Bank of America’s full-year net income was $4.8 billion for 2014, compared with $11.4 billion for 2013. Net income per diluted share fell from $0.90 in 2013 to $0.36 in 2014. Revenues for Bank of America dropped down to $85.1 billion in 2014, compared to $89.8 billion in 2013. On the positive side, the bank originated $15 billion in residential mortgage loans and home equity loans during Q4 2014, which helped approximately 41,000 homeowners purchase a home or refinance a mortgage.”In 2014, we continued to invest in our businesses while reducing expenses and resolving our most significant litigation matters,” Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan said. “Last quarter, consumer deposits and loan originations were solid; wealth management client balances grew to $2.5 trillion; we increased lending to middle-market and large companies; and we retained a leadership position in investment banking. There’s more work and tremendous opportunity ahead as we improve on the platform we’ve built to serve our customers and clients, and we enter 2015 in good shape to manage both the opportunities and the challenges the markets and economy will offer.” Previous: Indecomm Global Services Welcomes New VP of Sales Next: Dallas Fed to Host Government Outreach Meeting on Regulatory Burdens February 4 Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Settlements Cut Into Citigroup, Bank of America Net Earnings for Q4, Full-Year 2014 January 15, 2015 763 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Related Articles  Print This Postcenter_img Home / Daily Dose / Settlements Cut Into Citigroup, Bank of America Net Earnings for Q4, Full-Year 2014 Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

first_imgOlivia Covington for www.theindianalawyer.comn a decision handed down one day before Indiana’s 2018 primary election, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals found a rational relationship between an Indiana statute prohibiting sex offenders from entering school property and the state’s interest in protecting children. The court ruled the state does not violate a convicted sex offender’s voting rights by prohibiting him from voting at a polling place located in a high school and instead requiring him to vote via one of three alternatives.In Brian Valenti v. Connie Lawson, et al., 17-3207, Valenti was convicted in 1993 of a lewd or lascivious act with a child under 14 in California and served 10 years in prison. Valenti later moved to Indiana, where he is considered a serious sex offender who is prohibited from knowingly or intentionally entering school property pursuant to Indiana Code section 35-42-4-14(b).That prohibition poses a problem for Valenti on election days, because his neighborhood polling location is in the Blackford County High School gym. Instead of voting in the high school gym, state law allows Valenti to vote via absentee ballot, at the county courthouse, or at the local civic center.Despite those options, Valenti sued the state under the First and 14th Amendments, arguing the prohibition on his entering the high school gym violates his right to vote. Valenti’s as-applied challenge sought declaratory and injunctive relief, but the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana granted summary judgment to the state after finding the state’s interest in protecting children from serious sex offenders outweighed the “minimal burden” imposed on Valenti. The court relied on the balancing test laid out in Burdick v. Takushi, 504 U.S. 428, 112 S. Ct. 2059, 119 L.Ed. 2d 245 (1992) to reach that decision.The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the grant of summary judgment to the state on Monday, though Senior Judge J. Phil Gilbert — sitting by designation from the Southern District of Illinois — said the district court’s reasoning was wrong. Gilbert pointed to Indiana’s practice of allowing felons to vote once they have been released from prison, but with some restrictions such as those imposed on sex offenders such as Valenti.“Accordingly, Valenti only has a statutory right to vote here, not a constitutional right,” Gilbert wrote. “And since the Indiana statute does not infringe on any fundamental right or suspect class, it only requires rational basis review — not something higher, like the constitutional balancing test seen in Burdick.”The 7th Circuit then found that the restriction placed on Valenti survives rational basis review because Indiana’s interest in keeping serious sex offenders away from schools is rationally related to I.C. 35-42-4-14(b).FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

first_imgDear Friends,I’m sad to report on the passing of two citizens who were dedicated to the service of their country and community. Joe Somerville and Don Doll died last week, and I’d like to extend my deepest condolences to all of their family and friends.Joe served two years in U.S. Army and led a successful business career before retiring to Ocean City. He was an officer and long-time member of Fairness in Taxes, a former chairman of Ocean City’s Utility Advisory Commission, a citizen representative on the city’s Floodplain Management Committee, and a member of the former Economic Advisory Council. Somerville was never afraid to speak his mind and did not always agree with city officials. But his loyalties were always with Ocean City and with his fellow citizens.Don was a U.S. Air Force veteran and a long-time member of the American Legion Morvay-Miley Post 524 in Ocean City. He was a two-time president of the Ocean City Board of Realtors. He served on Ocean City’s Zoning Board and Historic Preservation Commission. As an officer and active member of the Exchange Club of Ocean City, Don was involved in planning Ocean City events like the annual Halloween Parade, Miss Ocean City Pageant and Exchange Club Fishing Tournament. He was also a member of the Miss Night in Venice Committee.Joe and Don are great examples of the community spirit that makes Ocean City unique, and they both will be missed.I want you all to be aware that the paving contractor for South Jersey Gas will be restoring streets this month that were excavated during an upgrade to high-pressure lines earlier this year. Milling and paving on Asbury Avenue from 21st Street through 29th Street is expected to start on Monday (May 8). Crews then will move on to West Avenue from 12th Street to 16th Street (starting approximately May 15). All work is scheduled to be complete before Memorial Day Weekend.Ocean City is the subject of a case study published by the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance. The article explains how the Purchasing Office saved the city $44,517 per year or more than $220,000 over the term of a 60-month contract without sacrificing any productivity. The feature is great example of the day-to-day work that all city departments do to increase efficiency and save taxpayer dollars. Read the complete story .Our 35th annual Spring Block Party is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday, May 6) on Asbury Avenue between Fifth Street and 14th Street. Parking in the area of the block party will be free on Saturday. I hope you get a chance to stop by and check out all that our downtown merchants and event vendors have to offer.Warm regards,Jay A.
