Despite the winter weather and dangerous seas, refugees are continuing to make the perilous journey to the Greek islands in their thousands.“For those refugees who arrive safely, the medical issues are numerous,” the United Society’s Max McClellan, who is in Greece assisting the Diocese in Europe and ecumenical partners as they respond to the crisis, said. “Beside routine maladies and medical conditions, the refugees suffer from conditions brought on by their arduous journeys and cramped living conditions, like scabies.”The Anglican Chaplaincy in Greece, in partnership with United Society is supporting the work of the Greek medical organisation Medical Intervention (MedIn) on the island of Samos. Together, they are providing medical help, with the church also helping to pay for medicine, soap, blankets and sleeping bags. MedIn also provides baby milk to those with young infants.“Urgent action to support refugees is vital,” Max McClellan said. “While countries disagree over their responsibilities and their response, refugees are dying.“As was noted during a joint statement issued by the World Council of Churches and the UN: ‘It is of urgent importance that safe and legal passage for refugees coming to Europe be expanded and facilitated. Closing national borders to refugees is not a solution because it only shifts the responsibility to the next country.’”He said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with those who lost family members off the coast of Samos yesterday.”The United Society’s director of global relations, Rachel Parry, added: “This tragic accident serves to further underline the shocking situations that are forcing people to make these inherently risky journeys. Desperate families choose to travel to Europe knowing the risks, but they have no other option.“While governments are depriving refugee families of assets and closing borders, the loss of these Kurdish lives is yet another appalling tragedy; may it be a reminder that motivates governments into action, rather than falling on closed minds, cold hearts and unmoving policies.“Change must happen, and happen fast.”Click here to read more about how the United Society and Diocese in Europe are responding to the refugee crisis.

Year one runs from 5 September 2011 to 31 March 2012. Year two runs from 1 April 2012 to 31 March 2013. Projects must operate in a specific locality, not regionally or nationwide. Applications are invited from voluntary and community organisations, social enterprises and informal groups. Grants must be spent mainly on revenue rather than capital needs.

Indiana Lt. Governor visits Farm Progress Show

first_img By Gary Truitt – Aug 30, 2017 SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Indiana Lt. Governor visits Farm Progress Show Day one of the 2017 Farm Progress Show drew thousands of farmers to the show site in Decatur, IL. Among the producers who strolled the massive exhibit field under a warm August sun was Indiana’s Lt. Governor and Secretary of Agriculture Suzanne Crouch. After visiting several of the exhibits, she told HAT she was impressed with the technology and encouraged about the future of agriculture, “Farmers in the Midwest are feeding people all over this country and all over the world. So we have to be prepared for the future.”Crouch also praised the spirit of American agriculture represented by those who are attending the Farm Progress show, “They represent the values that we feel are important. They are risk takers; they are entrepreneurs; they embrace God; they value the land. That is what Indiana is all about.”Crouch told HAT the technology on display at the show represents the future of agriculture and demonstrates the need for a technology trained work force, “Indiana has been and continues to be a leader in programs that foster a workforce that can advance this kind of technology in food production.”  She added that agriculture is looking to the future, a future where technology and innovation will play a key role.

Woman playing ‘Pokemon Go’ finds missing man with dementia in park

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) —  An 83-year-old man with dementia was reunited with his family on Friday — and he has “Pokemon Go” to thank for it.Homer Howard was discovered a state away from his hometown of Maineville, Ohio, by Allison Hines, according to Cincinnati ABC affiliate WCPO. Hines just so happened to be in Kenney Shields Park in Covington, Kentucky, at the right time on Friday morning. The park is a daily destination for her due to its designation as a Pokestop — a real-life location with in-game supplies for the video game which swept the nation with an unrivaled hysteria in the summer of 2016.But on Friday, Hines came across a stranger who seemed in need of help. Hines passed the elderly man, waving due to his Navy baseball cap. Hines herself is a Navy veteran.“As I turned the corner, everything in my being said, ‘Stop, turn this car around and go check on him,’” she told WCPO.Hines went back and spoke to the man, who told her his name — Homer Howard. But he was very surprised to find out he wasn’t even in his home state anymore.“I said, ‘Do you know you’re in Kentucky?’” Hines said. Maineville is 30 miles northeast of Covington, and it’s still unclear how Howard made his way so far south after being reported missing by his daughters, Tammy Richardson and Tonya Geringer, 24 hours earlier.“Lots of thoughts went through my mind,” Richardson said. “I just had to stop them. I just had to keep hoping, praying and waiting until we heard from him.”Howard returned home to his daughters on Friday evening and Hines said she hopes she can take him to dinner soon.“I’m very grateful for ‘Pokemon Go,’” she said. “My goodness. What I loved about it is, when I played its it got me out in the community. It was a social game. Today, it saved a man’s life.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Utah edges Tulsa 69-64 behind Gach, Barefield

first_imgDecember 1, 2018 /Sports News – Local Utah edges Tulsa 69-64 behind Gach, Barefield FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Both Gach and Sedrick Barefield scored 15 points apiece to lead Utah to a 69-64 victory over Tulsa on Saturday.Jayce Johnson added 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Utes. Utah (4-3) improved to 3-0 at home this season.Jeriah Horne scored 15 points, Sterling Taplin added 12 points and Lawson Korita chipped in 11 to lead the Golden Hurricane. Tulsa (5-3) lost for the third time in four games after shooting just 36 percent from the field.Utah missed nine of its first 11 shots before snapping the slump with four straight baskets. Gach provided the first three, including back-to-back 3-pointers. Riley Battin capped it off with a third 3-pointer to put the Utes ahead 15-6.Tulsa took its own cold start on offense a step further. The Golden Hurricane missed all 15 shots they attempted from 3-point range in the first half and opened up 0-of-18 from outside. They shot a scant 26 percent from the field (8-of-31) in the first 20 minutes.Tulsa didn’t score consecutive field goals for the first time until Daquan Jeffries and Martins Igbanu had back-to-back jumpers in the final two minutes of the half. Their baskets answered back-to-back baskets from Donnie Tillman and Jayce Johnson and cut Utah’s lead to 21-15.The Utes eventually carved out a 30-19 lead on Gach’s third 3-pointer early in the second half.Lawson Korita finally broke Tulsa’s long-distance drought with a corner three, highlighting baskets on four straight possessions for the Golden Hurricane. Tulsa trimmed the deficit to 34-30 on Jeriah Horne’s jumper. Sedrick Barefield and Parker Van Dyke answered with back-to-back 3-pointers to quell a potential rally and push Utah’s lead to 40-32.Tulsa cut the deficit to a basket on a 3-pointer from Jeffries with 6:46 remaining. Utah answered with a 7-0 run, capped by a Barefield 3-pointer, to extend its lead to 57-47 with 4:20 left.BIG PICTURETulsa: Poor shooting ultimately undercut a golden opportunity for the Golden Hurricane to score a big road upset over a Pac-12 team. Tulsa gave itself plenty of chances to get baskets after pulling down 17 offensive rebounds, but the Golden Hurricane just couldn’t get shots to consistently fall.Utah: Defense came to the rescue for the Utes after an anemic offensive effort. This could be a recurring theme for Utah. With several inexperienced freshmen playing key roles, things are likely to be bumpy on offense as the season progresses.UP NEXTTulsa hosts instate rival Oklahoma State on Wednesday.Utah plays instate rival BYU in the Beehive Classic on Saturday.

Sultana supplies face short-term shortage

first_imgUK bakeries have faced a 15% rise in the price of sultanas over the last two months amid warnings that supplies from Turkey could dry up by early summer – three months before the next harvest.Bulent Ergani, marketing and sales manager at the Tugrul Tarim export company in Turkey, told British Baker that a lack of rain had meant a poor harvest, with yield down from 300,000 metric tonnes (mts) last year to around 200,000 in 2007. “I expect in May or June that there will be no more exports,” he added.Mark Setterfield, managing director of RM Curtis, estimated in the firm’s latest market report that, after exports and domestic demand in Turkey, there would be a “grand total” of 40,000mts to last until the next harvest. He said prices would remain high and supplies could “run dry”.However, David Armstrong, chief executive Bako (UK Bakers Buying), said: “Our understan-ding is that most of the fruit destined for export has already left Turkey.” Since post-Easter usage is lower, he did not envisage supplies running out, but said that Bako is looking at other suppliers, notably Iran, to ensure its customers’ demands were met.Ben White, sales director at the family-run Marshfield Bakery, north of Bath, said the price of sultanas had risen by 15% in two months. “But we cannot pass on those charges over that period, as the outlets we supply have six-monthly or yearly price lists, so we have to absorb it,” he added. The bakery uses sultanas in its fruit cakes and chocolate sultana flapjacks.last_img read more
