Our connections do not go beyond our own bishop. Our parishioners neither know nor care about the activity, or lack thereof, of the national church.It is occurrences like this that sap trust in the national church and everyone connected with it. The result is that the national church is identified not only with dissension over relative trivia but also with utter incompetence.I speak as one who, in the past, attended several general conventions and fully understands the good will and great efforts that many people have given on behalf of the national church and the Anglican communion.

There are potentially many explanations for the multiple errors in the document including:Too many spreadsheets, too little time The inability to keep up with the rapid discourse as the debate between a 15% and 19% ask continued through the final discussions on the last day of meetingThe scheduling of the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget & Finance’s first meeting the day after the February Council meeting, necessitating agreement by the Executive Council to a final document before the Treasurer’s Office had adequate time to draft the document for final review by Executive CouncilIn spite of best efforts, the result is a document that does not fully reflect Council’s work.Below are some of Council’s concerns:Formation and Vocation: Line 526 “Staff Costs” under Formation and Vocation reads $537,030 for the Triennium. Line 556 “Total Formation and Vocation” reads $286,438. Because none of the detail lines are completed, perhaps it is simply the memo line in 556 that is mistaken. Line 556 is a total of lines 527-555, not lines 480-527 as it currently reads. This will impact the bottom line.Episcopal Service Corps: $200,000 – This item is currently subsumed under Mission Personnel in line 710. Council allotted $200,000 of new spending for the support of a local network in a covenant relationship. Episcopal Service Corps, which is an umbrella organization that supports young adult internship programs, throughout the church, was identified as the network to support in 2013-2015. Council’s thinking is that in each triennium this line will be shifted to a new organization with a new Memorandum of Understanding or a Covenant to provide ongoing support for emerging networks not originating with or from the General Convention or staffed by The Church Center. The draft proposed budget is balanced at $104.9 million. However, there is an internal inconsistency related to the proposed Development Office. The amount proposed as income from unrestricted endowment, and therefore not from general operating expenses, for the proposed Development Office is $3.7 million. The amount proposed as expenditure is $2.5 million. If the two numbers are brought into alignment, either by decreasing income or increasing expense, then the budget will be unbalanced by about $1.2 million.This Council has taken great care to receive accurate and even conservative projections of income for 2013-2015. It was difficult to make reductions resulting in cuts in programs the Council believes are extremely important. While difficult, it was the right thing to do in order to equip PB&F and General Convention to approach the formation of the budget of The Episcopal Church realistically.

Austin Sunday afternoon. Freshman defender Tijana Djuricek tallied a pair of assists on two first-half goals and freshman forward Natalee Heiser found the back of the net twice to lead the team.“We finally put together a complete 90 minutes,” TCU head coach Eric Bell said. “We took care of business against a team that is pretty good.”TCU set the tone in the first half by building an early 2-0 lead in the first half. Djuricek’s magic touch from the corner proved fruitful for the Frogs as she assisted on both goals in the first half. In the 15th minute, Djuricek found a flying Karitas Tomasdottir who headed the ball for the first goal of the game and her third of the season. The assist served as Djuricek’s first career point.Djuricek earned a corner kick for the Horned Frogs in the 37th minute. She attempted a long shot from midfield that deflected off of the Lumberjack’s goalie past the end line, setting up another corner kick. Another perfectly placed cross from Djuricek found Heiser to give the TCU a 2-0 lead.“We talked a lot about the start of the game,” Bell said. “We wanted to start off well and tried to get the momentum, be aggressive and attack.”Bell had nothing but praise for Djuricek following her strong play in the first half.“We were getting lots of opportunities, but our services have been inconsistent,” Bell said. “We talked about it as a staff and decided to give Tijana a shot at it. She did fantastic. You need a good services to create scoring chances and she gave us that.”The Lumberjacks began the second half with a strong push to try to cut the TCU lead in half, but the Horned Frogs withstood the pressure and put the game out of hand in the 56th minute. A shot from freshman defender Ariana Owens was saved, but Stephen F. Austin’s goalkeeper coughed up a rebound that was read perfectly by freshman midfielder Yazmeen Ryan and shot into the back of the net giving the Frogs a 3-0 lead.Heiser earned her second career multi-goal game of the season in the 78th minute as she converted a feed from Owens. The feed from Owens was her first career point.With the win, the Frogs concluded non-conference play with six wins and three losses.The Horned Frogs will begin conference play next weekend, hosting the Kansas Jayhawks Friday night. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina. If you walk by my desk in the newsroom you’ll immediately know I’m Post Malone’s biggest fan.

In statements posted on the embassy website on 14 and 29 February, he condemned the “irresponsible” comments and “absurdities” being said in the French media about China.In his previous position as China’s ambassador to Canada, Lu distinguished himself by his contempt for press freedom, publicly calling on the Canadian government to “spend less time bowing down to Canadian journalists preoccupied with human rights.”The ambassador’s statements reflect a policy concerted at the highest level of the Chinese government that aims to control international media coverage, as RSF demonstrated in a report entitled “China’s Pursuit of a New World Media Order” in 2019. to go further

She graduated from Texas Tech University where she received her M.A. in Mass Communications and her B.A. in Journalism. Casperson previously worked as a graduate teaching instructor at Texas Tech’s College of Media and Communications. Her thesis will be published by the International Communication Association this fall. To contact Casperson, e-mail: [email protected] Editor’s note: This article first appeared in the October issue of DS News, out now. Kerry Franich is a certified specialist in appellate law who works in Severson & Werson’s Orange County office where he prosecutes and defends State and Federal Appeals covering subjects including financial services, real estate, arbitration, unfair competition, discrimination, judicial disqualification, and civil procedure. DS News spoke with Franich about the greatest challenges financial services’ attorneys are facing today and how his years of experience help him navigate today’s climate.What current challenges are appellate attorneys who work in default litigation facing?Procedurally, court congestion has worsened in many jurisdictions, which causes a lot of appeals to progress at a seemingly glacial pace. That’s frustrating for both us and our clients, particularly when a sale is being delayed because of an appeal. Similarly, cases filed in trial courts these days often survive longer than cases filed several years ago because today’s cases are usually less vulnerable to pleadings challenges. More frequently, eliminating them requires a motion for summary judgment or trial. So, one challenge is ensuring that our clients don’t get trapped in a holding pattern just because of a pending appeal or lawsuit. We find that stagnant cases often lead to other problems: property preservation issues, needless escrow advances, and ballooning loan balances, all of which reduce the probability of the borrower curing the default or qualifying for a modification. There are substantive challenges too. Regulatory compliance is rightly a top concern for most of our clients right now, but there are also basic macro-level changes occurring in the law right now that are equally important. For example, in some jurisdictions, our basic understanding of loan servicers’ roles and obligations is changing. Do they owe borrowers a duty of care when reviewing loan modification applications? Courts are dividing over that question, so the answer may depend on the jurisdiction in which you’re litigating. Likewise, litigation involving the various state homeowner bills of rights that were enacted years ago are now reaching appellate courts. So, we’re starting to receive guidance from those courts about what certain sections of those bills mean and require. In short, the challenge is keeping up with rapid changes in law, anticipating the direction the law is headed, and writing briefs that help shape the law’s direction. What strategies can servicers employ to avoid costs and delays? It obviously depends on the case, but generally speaking, there are a few strategies that servicers can consider. The common theme running throughout them all, however, is to be proactive rather than reactive: foreclose, sell, and evict. Absent confirmed wrongdoing or a genuine threat of exposure to liability, foreclosing, selling properties out of REO, and evicting as quickly as possible tends to mitigate costs and reduce the probability of sequel lawsuits. In some cases, proceeding with a foreclosure, sale, or eviction can also prompt new settlement negotiations or voluntary dismissals. However, depending on your jurisdiction and the facts in your case, this strategy may be unavailable (for example, there’s a stay forbidding a sale). In addition, servicers should stop successive modification reviews if possible. Anyone on the front lines of foreclosure-related litigation has no doubt encountered the homeowner who applies for a loan modification after filing a lawsuit, is denied, and then re-applies again a few days, weeks, or months later. This area is fertile ground for wasting both time and attorney fees.Successive reviews can also be dangerous. For example, when a borrower files a meritless lawsuit after repeatedly getting denied a loan modification, but the servicer thereafter commits an egregious mistake while re-reviewing him or her (such as inadvertently foreclosing during the review). Servicers need to be careful to avoid creating liability where there was originally none. Depending on the jurisdiction and the circumstances of the case, a servicer may be required to re-evaluate the homeowner for a loan modification. However, if no obligation exists, servicers that value efficiency will choose to decline starting another review when it has no chance of success and creates no advantage in defending the litigation. In what ways do you help the servicers you work with streamline the appeals process? We search for ways to terminate the appeal short of a decision on the merits. In cases pending in backlogged appellate courts, search for opportunities to ditch the appeal earlier by motion. Appellate courts tend to issue decisions on motions a lot faster than full-blown decisions on the appeals’ merits. Sometimes, this is as easy as identifying a jurisdictional defect, like an untimely appeal. But there are other more subtle attack strategies too. Has a pivotal issue in the appeal become moot? Is there a way to have a party designated as a vexatious litigant? Is there an order you obtained in the trial court you can enforce while the case is on appeal? If so, that might be a source of unexpected leverage—most appellate courts have the inherent power to dismiss an appeal where a party fails to comply with a trial court order (the disentitlement doctrine). In short, don’t assume you’ll need to wait two years for an appellate court to file a decision on the merits. There may be a way to kill the case earlier. How can attorneys partner with servicers to predict and plan for litigation expenses? Forming an estimated budget at the suit’s inception is typically helpful for both us and our clients. And if something in the case occurs that dramatically impacts the budget’s estimate, then obviously updating the budget is important. Flat fee billing structures are helpful for those clients that want greater accuracy in forecasting legal expenses. Another area that is sometimes overlooked is scrutinizing whether any offensive litigation can be filed that might offset the cost of defense. Default servicing litigation has traditionally been strictly defensive in nature. But an unsettling number of lawsuits against servicers sometimes reveal fraud and other misconduct committed by borrowers or other third parties. Yes, pursuing a cross-complaint may be futile if the target has no assets. But not always.

ABCNews.com(NEW YORK) — A bus carrying high school students struck a highway overpass on Long Island in New York on Sunday, injuring more than 40 people, police said.The charter bus was traveling eastbound on the Southern State Parkway in Lakeview on Sunday evening when it slammed into the overpass, police said. The top of the bus was sheared off by the impact of the crash.Commercial vehicles such as this bus are not allowed on New York State parkways because the bridges are so low in certain areas.New York State Police Maj. David Candelaria described multiple of the injuries as serious, adding that some of the passengers had to be extricated.“This was treated as a mass-casualty incident,” Candelaria said at a press conference at the scene. “I give credit the Nassau County police ambulance bureau’s emergency services unit and the Lakeview Volunteer Fire Department. They set up a mass-casualty treatment triage and probably saved lives.“We’re very lucky. This could have been tragic,” he added.The injuries ranged from broken bones and cuts and scrapes, Candelaria said.Two of the injuries were serious, five were moderate and the remainder were minor, police said in a press release.Forty-four people were on board the bus, including the driver, five chaperones and 38 students.The teens, all between ages 16 and 18, were returning from a trip to Europe and heading to meet their parents at a nearby mall when the accident happened, authorities said. It was not clear which schools they were affiliated with.The bus was operated New Jersey-based Journey Bus Lines, which did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Police told ABC’s New York station WABC that the driver is not from the area and was not aware of the parkway system. The bridge is one of the lowest, if not the lowest, on the entire system, according to WABC.The New York State Police Department said the driver would undergo drug and alcohol testing.The crash is under investigation.
