The company is now without the core team that led it so successfully through the last decade. The £2bn man – that’s how much the markets marked down the firm when they learnt of Becht’s departure – will be a tough act to follow. There’s no doubt that replacement Rakesh Kapoor has a lot to prove, and until he’s had a chance to get his feet under the table the share price could be dampened. But 25 years at the company must count for something, and management will be hoping that next week’s first-quarter figures will boost morale and restore value. Nestle’s market cap fell by £4bn when its finance chief Paul Polman was passed over to take charge in 2007, but the shares quickly recovered and long-term performance has been strong.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Tags Rector Knoxville, TN [Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] Ambas cámaras de la Convención General adoptaron el 12 de julio una resolución que les permite a todas las congregaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal el uso de versiones en lenguaje expansivo de tres plegarias eucarísticas del Rito II del Libro de Oración Común de 1979.La Resolución D078 facilita un lenguaje alternativo para las [fórmulas alternativas] A, B y D de la Gran Plegaria Eucarística. Los cambios estarán disponibles para uso experimental hasta que se concluya la próxima revisión completa del Libro de Oración Común.Toda la cobertura de ENS de la 79ª. reunión de la Convención General se encuentra aquí.La revisión del libro de oración ha sido tema de gran debate durante esta convención, la cual finalmente convino en la creación de nuevos textos litúrgicos que respondan a las necesidades de los episcopales de toda la Iglesia en tanto siguen usando el libro de 1979. No se ha fijado ninguna fecha específica para comenzar esa revisión total.Los diputados adoptaron por abrumadora mayoría la resolución en una votación por órdenes, la cual se exige para autorizar liturgias de uso experimental. Los resultados fueron:Clérigos: 78 sí, 19 no, 12 divididosLaicos: 89 sí, 14 no, 6 divididosSe requerían cincuenta y cinco votos de cada orden para la aprobación. Los votos divididos se registran cuando el clero o los miembros laicos de una diputación dividen sus votos entre sí y no.Luego de aprobada la resolución se envió rápidamente a la Cámara de obispos, la cual la aprobó en una votación de viva voz después de poco debate.La Rda. Laurie Brock, diputada de Lexington, propuso la [Resolución] D078. La secundaron oficialmente la Rda. Beth Scriven de Misurí y el Rdo. Scott Gunn, de Ohio Sur.Brock le dijo a los diputados que el amplio plan para la revisión litúrgica y del libro de oración no cambia el hecho de que cada domingo los feligreses oyen las palabras en el actual libro de oración que son “fundamentalmente masculinas” . Ella dijo que ofrecer las versiones revisadas de las actuales plegarias eucarísticas es “una manera inmediata de llevar de vuelta a nuestras congregaciones el anhelo que hemos oído en esta Convención, de manera que Dios pueda celebrarse en todos los géneros”.[Hablando] de una manera más práctica, ella dijo que la resolución “reconoce la realidad de que muchos de nosotros estamos haciendo esto los domingos y no querríamos ser procesados por el Título IV por hacerlo”, refiriéndose a los cánones para la disciplina del clero.A continuación algunos ejemplos del lenguaje opcional incluido en los ritos de uso experimental:Los sacerdotes pueden comenzar cualquiera de los tres ritos diciendo: “Bendito sea Dios: santísima, gloriosa e indivisa Trinidad”. La actual aclamación de apertura de “ Bendito sea Dios: Padre, Hijo y Espíritu Santo” es también una opción. En cualquier caso, la respuesta del pueblo es “Y bendito sea el reino de Dios ahora y por siempre. Amén”.Al comienzo de la Gran Plegaria Eucarística en los tres ritos, el sacerdote puede decir “Dios sea con ustedes”, en lugar de “El Señor sea con ustedes”.El Sanctus ahora puede decirse usando “Bendito quien viene en el nombre del Señor”, además de “Bendito el que viene en el nombre del Señor”.En la Plegaria Eucarística A, los celebrantes tienen ahora la opción de decir “ … tú, en tu misericordia, enviaste a Jesucristo, tu Hijo único y terno, para compartir nuestra naturaleza humana, para vivir y morir como uno de nosotros, y así reconciliarnos contigo, el Dios y hacedor de todo”. En la versión original, esa oración concluye con “…el Dios y Padre de todos”.La Plegaria Eucarística B contiene un texto opcional para la oración: “Únenos a tu Hijo en su sacrificio, a fin de que, por medio de él, seamos aceptables, siendo santificados por el Espíritu Santo”. La opción dice: “Únenos en el sacrificio de Cristo, a través de quien somos aceptables a ti, siendo santificados por el Espíritu Santo”.En la Plegaria Eucarística D se ofrece la opción de añadir la palabra “matriarcas”, después de “patriarcas” en esta oración: “Y concede que alcancemos nuestra herencia con [la Bendita Virgen María, con los patriarcas, profetas, apóstoles y mártires (con _____) y todos los santos que han encontrado favor contigo en tiempos pasados”.Las opciones que se ofrecen en la D078 han de proporcionarse a la Iglesia sin costo alguno por distribución electrónica, dice la resolución.La resolución le pide a la Comisión Permanente de Liturgia y Música, o SCLM [por su sigla en inglés] que considere revisar la Plegaria Eucarística C, a veces llamada la oración de la Guerra de las Galaxias por su referencia a “la vasta extensión del espacio interestelar, las galaxias, los soles, los planetas en su trayectoria, y esta frágil tierra, nuestro hogar insular”.A la SCLM se le pide que supervise el uso de los ritos en lenguaje expansivo y que comience una traducción en equivalencia dinámica de los ritos en español, francés y creole haitiano.La D078 solicita $12.500 para la labor inherente. El presupuesto 2019-2021 ya ha sido aprobado, de manera que esa parte de la resolución se convierte en lo que se conoce como un mandato sin financiación y es potestativo del Consejo Ejecutivo determinar la fuente para financiarla.– La Rda Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora principal y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Six Nations conclude investigation into tunnel altercation at Murrayfield

first_imgWednesday Feb 28, 2018 Six Nations conclude investigation into tunnel altercation at Murrayfield The tunnelgate incident has been laid to rest after Six Nations Rugby concluded its investigation into the scuffle that took place in the tunnel before kick-off at Murrayfield on Saturday. Both sets of players have, however, been warned. Speculation about the pre-match bust up were fuelled at halftime when the BBC played a clip as their cameras caught footage of the incident, albeit from the other side of the field.We were then supplied with footage from a fan overlooking the tunnel, but that too was fairly inconclusive, only showing Owen Farrell running in but giving no explanation as to what had provoked it.Six Nations Rugby gathered material from the RFU and SRU, as well as from the BBC and the match officials, and also viewed available footage of the incident.“It concluded that there was some evidence of pushing and shoving in the tunnel at the relevant time but no clear evidence of violent conduct or similar against any individual player,” today’s statement read.“Accordingly, Six Nations Rugby will be writing to the SRU and the RFU to remind them and their respective players of their obligations to uphold the reputation of the tournament at all times, but no further disciplinary action will be taken. “Six Nations Rugby will also remind all Unions of their’s and their players’ obligations.”You can view the incident in the two videos below. As suspected by many fans, it appears that it was nothing more than a bit of pre-match adrenalin head of a heated encounter.Meanwhile, Ryan Wilson, who was also involved, will today face his disciplinary hearing for allegedly making contact with the eyes of Nathan Hughes.

A Wild Start to 2017 for Oil Futures

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News A Wild Start to 2017 for Oil Futures Oil futures made a sharp turn lower Tuesday, giving up their highest levels in about 18 months to mark their lowest settlement in about two weeks, with traders anxious to find out whether OPEC and other major oil producers will stick to their pledge to cut back output. February West Texas Intermediate fell by $1.39, or 2.6%, to settle at $52.33 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the lowest finish since Dec. 20, according to data from Dow Jones. It had traded as high as $55.24, which would have marked the highest settlement level since July 2015.Prices saw a sharp reversal from an early rally and at least part of the reason for the move was technical, Tyler Richey, co-editor of The 7:00’s Report, told MarketWatch. “There was a roughly $1 ‘gap’ between Friday’s primary session close and this morning’s 9 a.m. open and fast money traders chased it lower to ‘fill the gap,’” he said.

UTPB gets OK for tuition hike

first_img Facebook utpb logo words OR USE THIS ONE The University of Texas System Board of Regents on Monday approved two-year tuition increases submitted by all academic UT institutions, including the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, to provide them with needed revenue to boost student success, including an emphasis on increasing graduation rates and recruiting and retaining top faculty.The approved increases, to be instituted in the fall of 2018, range from $6 to $306 per semester for in-state undergraduate tuition, depending on the institution, followed by increases of $100 to $300 per semester in the fall of 2019, a news release said.As part of the Board’s consideration, it required tuition proposals from all eight UT academic institutions to include detailed plans for how the increased revenue would directly support student and faculty excellence. Each institution was also required to gather substantial input from students and the local community on the impact of tuition increases as it developed its proposal, the release said.Currently, resident undergraduate tuition and fees for 15 semester credit hours is $3,616, counting required fees per semester, UTPB President Sandra Woodley said Monday.For 2018, tuition and fees will increase to $3,922 for 15 semester credit hours, Woodley said.In 2019, it will rise to $4,233 for 15 semester credit hours. The increase will bring in about $1.5 million in net revenue, she said. This includes fees specifically earmarked for things like athletics and technology capacity.“We greatly appreciate the support on the tuition increases,” Woodley said. “For us, it’s about $300 per semester for undergraduate students. That was really important for us to be able to pour those funds into the strategic planning we’re doing at the university.”Woodley said the funds would go toward strategic enrollment management, providing amenities and student support services for retention and graduation.She added that one of the things UTPB will do with the funds is earmark more than what’s required for needs-based financial aid.“Even with this $300 increase for the students, it still puts us below the average of our peers. So we’re still relatively affordable and we’re taking extra steps to ensure we have students with need won’t see an increase at all,” Woodley said. “We want to make sure that as we increase the resources to the institution, we don’t price out students who may have a financial barrier.”She also wants to make sure students have a good experience with everything from paying their bills to getting financial aid and having professional advisors on hand.“The other thing we’re working on is creating a welcoming, inviting space for students, particularly traditional students to want to come,” Woodley said.This would include secure, 24-hour study spaces at the Student Activity Center, providing secure access via keycards and easier access to technology for studying and participating in group projects, for example, she said.She said there will be a comprehensive approach to grow the university over the next five years and she will be working with community leaders and the UT System to accomplish the goals.Institutions asking for the highest percentage increases, including UT El Paso, UPTB and UT Tyler, currently have tuition rates less than $4,000 per semester, still placing them among the most affordable in Texas and significantly lower than peer institutions across the nation, the release said.For the first time, UT El Paso, UTPB, UT Rio Grande Valley, UT San Antonio and UT Tyler will charge “differential” tuition based on a student’s major. Programs that cost more to operate, such as business and engineering, typically charge higher tuition rates. UT Arlington, UT Austin and UT Dallas already have differential tuition programs in place.Tuition proposals for out-of-state students, graduate and professional students were also approved by the Regents.In addition, the System’s six health science institutions received authorization for their respective five-year tuition plans, with the vast majority of increases for health profession programs averaging less than 5 percent per year, the release said.Currently, tuition for health profession programs is among the lowest in the country. For example, medical school tuition costs less than two-thirds of the national average for public medical schools. Similarly, the debt burden for graduates of UT medical schools is a quarter lower than the national average, the release said.The UT System Board of Regents last approved tuition increases for academic and health institutions in February 2016. Prior to that, most UT in-state undergraduate students had seen little to no increase in tuition since the fall of 2012, the release said.
