Canada weighs LSE deal

first_img whatsapp whatsapp Share A KEY inquiry into the London Stock Exchange’s merger with Canada’s TMX Group has recommended the Toronto bourse appoint more directors, but did not oppose the proposed tie-up marking the first hurdle for its approval.The Ontario government committee reviewing the deal plans said an equal number of directors should be appointed. Under the current proposals, TMX would only hold seven of the 15 board positions in the combined group.The legislative group made nine recommendations for the Canadian federal government and the Ontario Securities Commissions to consider, although said it had no power to impose its views on the deal. The Ontario government plans to submit the report to the federal government’s industries ministry, one of several agencies required to approve the transaction.

first_img Rector Washington, DC Posted Dec 31, 2012 Julian Malakar says: Featured Jobs & Calls TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Tags Course Director Jerusalem, Israel January 1, 2013 at 12:08 am You do remember that ‘the agony of Christ on the Cross’ was caused by religious people? They hunted him down and attacked him until finally they killed him on a charge of religious heresy. Therefore as we contemplate the agony of Christ on the Cross this should not become a call for more religious abstractions, nor should it be interpreted as the call for some more religion, only of a different kind, but rather religious people must change their hardened hearts, become more humble and repentant and find God, and not find religion or abstract doctrines about the cross. Rector Bath, NC Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Smithfield, NC Julian Malakar says: Rector Tampa, FL January 13, 2013 at 5:12 pm I want to reveal from the heart the prayer of faiths that know God:in our prayers if we lie flat we see God made the earth for us to be from Him. If we touch our foreheads to the ground we see God is greater than all imagination. If we stand nodding, we see God says “yes” to all prayers. If we put our hands together we see God wants to be embraced. If we genuflect we see God wants our hearts to soar. If we dance we see God reveals himself for joy. God’s love is for all. For Heaven we are made for. Let Episcopalians rejoice : we know Jesus.

His agony caused not by a particular group of people in a time but of spiritual sins happening all the time until Judgment Day. Because of this Church celebrates Holy Communion until His coming again, following Christ’s command, to reflect His agony and be humble and repented.If we have faith on the word of God in the Bible, we know that Jesus, the Son of God, is creator of all seen and unseen like heaven, angels, black matter etc. as said in Apostle Creed. Had He chose to save Himself from His attackers, He could do so, but humankind would miss His abandon love for forgiveness of sins to be His children. His love for forgiving our debts is not without any preconditions. Preconditions believe Jesus as Son of God and sin no more. How can human know what sins are to the eyes of God, not eyes of human? Good writings or sermon in pulpit would not satisfy human mind unless it has solid evidence that new teachings are from God, as Jesus proved Himself, His divinity to the world thru miraculous signs, like resurrection. Like Philip asked Jesus to show His Father to believe Him, people like to see thru godly resource; new teaching comes from God not from human mind. There are plenty of eyewitness evidences recorded in the Bible causing the Bible to believe word of God and recognizing good and evil works. Like all that glitters is not gold, all religious people are not religious. Priority of the Church (Body of Christ) is to make its sheep educated enough listening master’s cry at the cross and restraint sins attracted by human body and blood and find God everywhere as Mother Teresa found in the eyes of the poorest of poor. Youth Minister Lorton, VA Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, January 16, 2013 at 12:41 pm “Let Episcopalians rejoice: we know Jesus.” I am an Episcopalian too. What Jesus we are talking about? Are we talking about resurrected Jesus in the Bible glorified as “Christ”, savior of all souls, thru Him humankind “came back to pavilion” where we used to belong since creation as children of God; or Jesus in the Koran honored as prophet, but less than Prophet Mohammed, godly man but not crucified and resurrected; or historical Jesus as a good man, married and have family?What we believe play an important role in innovating new teaching, accepting or rejecting new teaching by congregation over existing practice in the Church. Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME [Episcopal News Service] “Our brothers are looking for the Holy One even if they don’t yet have the language for what it is they are seeking. Are you looking everywhere for Jesus? Go out and seek other anxious children, those brothers and sisters of ours who are also looking for him. We will find him in our Father’s house, even if it’s in another room,” said Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori in her Dec. 30 sermon.The presiding bishop preached during the 11 a.m. service at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Ramallah; Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem Suheil S. Dawani presided over the Dec. 30 service attended by some 40 people. The Rev. Hannah Daleh, rector of St. Andrew’s, and the Rev. Canon John Organ, the bishop’s chaplain, assisted.The presiding bishop is visiting Israel and the Palestinian Territories at Dawani’s invitation. She is accompanied by Bishop James Magness, the Episcopal Church’s bishop suffragan for federal ministries; the Rev. Canon Robert Edmunds, the Episcopal Church’s Middle East global partnerships officer; and Alexander Baumgarten, director of the Episcopal Church’s Washington, D.C.-based Office of Government Relations.The full text of the presiding bishop’s sermon follows.First Sunday after Christmas30 Dec 2012St. Andrew’s, RamallahThe Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts SchoriPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal ChurchSeveral years ago, I visited a congregation in western Kentucky, where the teen-aged boys and girls gave me a T-shirt with their motto:  Grace Church Acolytes – playing with fire since 1853.  On Christmas morning at St. George’s Cathedral I met an 8-year-old doing the same thing – he was entrusted with carrying the gospel book.  An older boy carried the flaming thurible, spreading sweet incense around the altar, over that same gospel book, and throughout the congregation.  That’s what Samuel was doing – serving in the Lord’s house, keeping the oil lamps burning.  The children in our midst learn many things from playing with fire – not just fire safety, but the possibilities that come when God’s word is flaming up within us and among us.  They also learn about the remarkable fires that can be lit when that living Word runs through the stubble of the world’s leavings.  That is exactly what Jesus’ earthly parents had on their hands in a youngster who engaged his elders with the burning coals of God’s word.It’s been a joy and delight to see how deeply valued children are here, how they are encouraged to grow and develop their unique gifts and treasure the ways they’ve been created.  Even and perhaps especially in the midst of the challenges of life here, there is something remarkably peaceful – filled with peace – about the presence and affirmation and encouragement of children, from the very youngest to those beginning to mature into adults.  The birth of God in human flesh continues in our midst as the body of Christ is renewed.  Toddlers take communion, included as full members of this body.  Children take their place in the worship of the church.  Youth learn about serving their neighbors in the wider world, and the hard and life-giving work of peace-making.I’ve met children and youth on the streets of Jerusalem who know something of their own strength for this work.  A girl of about 10 stopped me when I was out running by pounding on her wrist with the other hand, demanding to know what time it was – she and her friend must get to school on time!  I understood not a word, but she got her message across.  Another day, a gaggle of teen-aged boys standing at a bus stop laughed at me running up a steep hill, asking in their broken English if I wanted help, or a push up the hill.  These children are bold enough to challenge because they know themselves beloved and treasured.  When people know their own dignity, there is enough room for humor, and peace begins to be made.  Jesus’ response to his parents’ three-day frantic search sounds like that – he’s gently making fun of them for not knowing where he’d be.  They had taught him well, after all.At the same time, the world then and now is filled with children and young people who are not valued for themselves or loved and respected as the image of God.  Too many young lives are seen as commodities to be traded, sold, or enslaved to suit the purposes of others.  Modern slavery is just as vicious as anything practiced in our human past.  Babies are sold in China[1]; children are held as slaves to fish in Lake Volta[2]; thousands of girls and a few boys are enslaved in prostitution all over the world[3].  Children in many places find limits placed on their futures because of gender or social status, and economic realities limit the access of millions of children to education and the possibility of meaningful employment.Jesus was born into a world of profound limitation, yet he became the open door for all God’s children.  His taking on mortal flesh as a powerless infant shows the world that God’s greatest treasure is to be found in that same condition.  The adult Jesus insists that his friends not keep the children away, for they show us the infinite worth of God’s reign in our midst.  The kingdom is open to those who care for the least of these, and that kingdom welcomes all who encourage rather than dissuade the little ones.  Isaiah reminds us that “a little child will lead them” – for children can show us the path to that ancient dream of peace.Are we older ones willing to be led?  Are we willing to discover the divine light in the younger among us?  Babies aren’t just cute bundles to be dandled on a knee; they are agents of change, as anyone who has ever listened to a loud cry can attest.  That cry insists, “change me” or “change something about my environment – now!”  The insistence of those who have more words is just as significant.One of the greatest challenges for our tradition in these times is how and whether we will listen to those cries for change – toward peace, for justice, for meaning in the face of a world that can seem meaningless.  In the western context, young adults are frequently absent from our churches.  They are, however, asking questions of utmost spiritual significance – “how can I live a meaningful life; how can I build a world of justice for all people; how can I make a difference in this world?”  Some who have grown up in Christian communities are asking why the churches don’t help them discover answers to those questions.  Others can’t hear good news in unfamiliar music or the language of insiders.  Why do churches refuse to change in ways that might address those seekers and their hunger for good news?Many in and outside the churches are discovering, or perhaps remembering, that vital communities of faith have always had to wrestle with the challenges of new contexts and questions.  Moses did.  Abraham did.   Those who went into exile in Babylon did, and so did those who returned here with new ways of worship.  Even Jesus changed, and his conversation with the Syrophoenician woman is a great example.[4]  The woman asks for healing for her daughter, and when Jesus declines to heal a Gentile, she pushes until she gets what she is after – an acknowledgement of her dignity, and access to the healing power of God.The younger ones around us are making the same challenge:  “we want to see God, we want to encounter the holy in our own lives and contexts.  We don’t understand what you’re doing there inside your churches.  We need to see God out here, on the street, in our lives as students, looking for jobs, struggling to find a way in this world, finding a reason to live.”Christmas Eve in the cathedral was glorious, but it was even more wonderful to talk to the people who stayed after for hot chocolate.  I met a group of five young adults – I think secular Jews – Israelis who had come to see a Christmas celebration, and were filled with wondering questions.  Some of them knew far more about what was going on than I expected.  They were all eager and hungry to connect with the divine.  It is not only Jesus’ parents who have been searching for him with great anxiety – his siblings are.  We can help others discover him, in his father’s house, which includes all creation, not just the part of it inside churches.  He’s all around us, and everywhere, not only inside here.  Our brothers and sisters are looking for the holy one, even if they don’t yet have language for what they seek.Are you looking everywhere for Jesus?  Go and seek out other anxious children, those brothers and sisters of ours, who are also looking for him.  We’ll find him in our father’s house, even if it’s in a different room.[1] http://rendezvous.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/12/26/buy-sell-adopt-child-trafficking-in-china[2] http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2012/09/slavery-still-exists/262847/[3] http://www.nbcbayarea.com/investigations/From-Sex-Slave-to-Activist-How-a-Berkeley-Woman-is-Using-Her-Past-to-Help-Others–184471481.html;

South Korea Lifts Ban on U.S. Poultry/Egg Imports

first_img By NAFB News Service – Aug 20, 2017 SHARE Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleU.S. Pork Heading to Argentina NAFB News Service The U.S. Department of Agriculture says South Korea has lifted a ban on U.S. poultry and egg imports. That will allow American farmers to resume selling their products to a country that suffered from a shortage of eggs after its worst-ever avian flu outbreak. South Korea was actually importing more eggs from the U.S. earlier this year as it battled its avian flu outbreak. South Korea placed limits on U.S. egg imports in March after the first U.S. case of bird flu was found in Tennessee. Jim Sumner, President of the U.S. Poultry and Egg Export Council, says, prior to the South Korean move, “Americans were putting table eggs in there like they were going out of style. They are still in desperate need.” South Korea has the fourth-largest economy in Asia. It was hit hard by a deadly outbreak of H5N8 bird flu after the first case was confirmed last November.The outbreak led to a culling of 37 million farm birds, a record number totaling more than one-fifth of the total poultry population. USDA is working to convince Korea to limit future shipment restrictions to only the geographic regions in which the disease is detected.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News South Korea Lifts Ban on U.S. Poultry/Egg Imports Facebook Twitter South Korea Lifts Ban on U.S. Poultry/Egg Imports SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Previous: What a $15k Tax Credit Could Mean for Homeownership Next: Industry Prepares for Increased Foreclosure and Loss Mitigation Activity Americans are spending a considerable more amount of time at home over the past year due to the pandemic and adapting to this new norm, increasingly renovating their living spaces accordingly. Buildfax’s latest Housing Health Report has found that as more time is spent at home, homeowners have turned to exterior home renovations, including secondary structures, solar panels, decking, and pools.Buildfax found that single-family housing authorizations increased 9.08% year-over-year and 2.57% month-over-month in February 2021. Meanwhile, the trailing three-month outlook (December 2020-February 2021) increased 10.98%—the sixth-consecutive month of upward activity.Much of the nation’s workforce has adapted to a remote work situation, with more time spent at home and many seeking larger and more spacious homes. More time at home has resulted in the construction of pools, secondary structures, solar panels, and decking amid the pandemic. The highest year-over-year growth was seen in the construction of pools, with 35.39% growth over 2020, as secondary structures to accommodate things like home offices experiencing 24.39% year-over-year growth.“As we approached one year since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we saw some clear trends emerging related to homeowner behaviors that may be here to stay,” said Jonathan Kanarek, Managing Director of BuildFax. “Increasingly, homeowners have turned to projects outside of the home, as they look to improve or expand their livable spaces—like installing a pool or backyard office space. These projects reflect shifts in how Americans use their homes following adjustments to remote work and less travel amid the pandemic. As a whole, investment in the existing housing stock has seen remarkable growth, as Americans continue to spend time at home and prioritize home improvements, rather than re-enter the competitive housing market.”More time at home has also resulted in increased energy costs, as homeowners have turned their attention to energy efficiency and cost-cutting measures, with the installation of solar panels seeing a year-over-year rise of 14.62% over 2020.Click here to access Buildfax’s February 2021 Housing Health Report.  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Eric C.
