Fiona Bennett, minister of Augustine United Reform Church (Protestant) in Edinburgh, told ENInews: “We’re delighted. It’s been some time coming.” She described her church as an inclusive one, friendly to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual community in Scotland .Sturgeon promised religious organizations that oppose homosexual weddings the Scottish Government will bring forward no legislation impinging on an individual’s freedom of speech or freedom to practice or preach religion.“The Scottish Government,” she said, “will take all necessary steps to protect churches and individuals within those churches who do not wish to conduct same sex weddings if they do not agree with them.”A spokesman for the Roman Catholic Church said: “The Scottish Government is embarking on a dangerous social experiment on a massive scale.”The Rev. Rod Thomas, chairman of Reform (a conservative evangelical network within the Church of England), said in a texted statement: “God designed marriage to be the union of one man and one woman, reflecting the union of Christ as bridegroom and the Church his bride. God is not a person with whom even U.K. prime ministers can negotiate a more congenial set of commands.”The announcement came as U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron hosted a meeting of prominent gay leaders at his London home, 10 Downing Street.“I am absolutely determined that this coalition government will follow in that tradition by legalizing gay marriage in this Parliament,” he said.“The prime minister’s sneering remarks show his own intolerance of religious people who disagree with him on gay marriage,” said Mike Judge of the Christian Institute. “It is incredibly arrogant of him to tell churches what religious beliefs they should and shouldn’t hold. No wonder huge swathes of churchgoers are suspicious of his motives.” Director of Music Morristown, NJ The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Albany, NY Rector Collierville, TN Featured Jobs & Calls An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Press Release Service Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Martinsville, VA Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Featured Events Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Tampa, FL Rector Shreveport, LAlast_img read more

To celebrate teachers and all that they do, 76 local Domino’s stores recently handed out gift certificates for free medium one-topping carryout pizza to teachers throughout Orange, Osceola and Polk counties.“All owners and franchises for the last three years agreed to offer these hard working teachers this gift of a medium pizza, said Josh Gabish, Operating Partner at the Apopka Domino’s Pizza.  “It’s something we do to recognize them and thank them for all the hard work they do all year long.” Gabisch also mentioned that, “both of my children attended Apopka schools.”“Teachers are the core to kids’ education and they often have a thankless job,” said Rich Price, another Central Florida Domino’s Pizza franchise owner. “The school year is over and all of the Central Florida Domino’s owners wanted to come together to show how much we appreciate educators throughout the area.”Local Domino’s stores recently handed out more than 19,000 gift certificates for free medium one-topping carryout pizzas to teachers across 300 schools in surrounding counties.“Many teachers dedicate their lives and work extremely hard to educate our youth, and they do it without praise or recognition,” said Price. “Giving away pizza is the least we can do to say ‘thank you.’”About Domino’s Pizza®Founded in 1960, Domino’s Pizza is the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, with a significant business in carryout pizza.

Florida home sales up by 8 percent, prices by 4 percent…

first_img The Anatomy of Fear By Ivan Cholakov | Shutterstock.com LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 According to Florida Realtors, between July and September, the state “saw an increase in new listings as well as closed sales across all price tiers above $200,000, with many first-time buyers getting a shot at those newly listed homes located at the more affordable end of the price spectrum.” O’Connor explained that current owners “locked into low mortgage rates from a few years back have been waiting for a chance to buy a bigger or better home at similar rates – and that’s exactly what we saw happen throughout the summer.”The favorable interest rates encourage existing homeowners to “upgrade,” creating an inventory for first-time homebuyers.According to an August “State Migration Study” by Lending Tree, the nation’s largest “online lending marketplace,” Florida’s housing and real estate markets are expected to benefit from the state’s status as the nation’s top destination for growing migration of wealthy tax refugees and businesses.The Lending Tree study cites 2016 IRS data that “shows people who moved to Florida brought a combined adjusted gross income [AGI] of about $30.2 billion to the state. Meanwhile, people who left took roughly $12.5 billion in income with them, leaving Florida to enjoy a net influx of about $17.7 billion in AGI.”That net flux of $17.7 billion in AGI is more than the next 19 states in AGI growth combined, according to the IRS.center_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate By John Haughey | The Center Square Florida housing sales during 2019’s third quarter were up by 8.1 percent and median home-sale values increased nearly 4 percent over 2018’s third quarter, according to a November market data analysis by Florida Realtors, which cites a “rising pending inventory” of sales by year’s end in forecasting a strong fourth quarter for the state’s housing market. “Median sales prices for both existing single-family homes and for condo-townhouse properties rose in Florida during the third quarter – continuing the ongoing trend,” said Florida Realtors President Eric Sain, a Palm Beach Realtor.Closed sales typically occur 30 to 90 days after sales contracts are written. “Pending inventory” is the number of listed properties under contract on Sept. 30, the last day of the third quarter.According to the market data report, closed sales of single-family homes statewide totaled 78,759 in the third quarter of 2019, up 8.1 percent from 2018’s third quarter.Florida Realtors – which represents 187,000 members in a statewide network of 51 real estate boards/associations – fixes the statewide median sales price for existing single-family homes in the third quarter of 2019 at $265,000, up 3.9 percent from the same time a year ago.“Florida’s business-friendly outlook continues to attract investment and growth, as well as new residents, which provide a strong foundation for the state’s housing market,” Florida Realtors states in the report, which cites state economists and researchers from the Legislature’s Office of Economic & Demographic Research (OEDR) reports that show Florida’s annual private-sector job growth rate of 2.8 percent continues to outpace the national job growth rate of 1.6 percent.“Job growth, an unemployment rate of 3.2 percent in September, and a growing population continue to keep Florida’s economy strong,” Florida Realtor states in its report, referring to projections that the state will add 330,000 people a year and top 30 million in population by 2030.An analysis of Florida’s condo-townhouse market shows statewide sales of 29,539 units sold between July and September, up 2.2 percent compared to the same time frame a year ago.The statewide median condo-townhouse price during the quarter was $190,000, up 4.1 percent over the year-ago figure, according to Florida Realtors, noting “the median is the midpoint; half the homes sold for more, half for less.”Inventory was at a 3.6-months’ supply in the third quarter of 2019 for single-family homes and at a 5.3-months’ supply for condo-townhouse properties, according to Florida Realtors.“Inventory levels – particularly among single-family homes for sale – continued to fall throughout the third quarter,” Florida Realtors Chief Economist Dr. Brad O’Connor said. “But so did mortgage interest rates, which provided opportunities for both prospective and current homeowners.”According to Freddie Mac, the interest rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.67 percent for the third quarter of 2019, far lower than the 4.57 percent average recorded during the third quarter of 2018.During the third quarter of 2019, the report documents new pending sales for existing single-family homes rose 4.4 percent while pending inventory was up 1.7 percent.During the same three months, according to Florida Realtors, condo-townhouse new pending sales rose 0.5 percent while pending inventory increased 0.9 percent.

Enough House is the newest addition to architect Brian MacKay-Lyons’ Shobac farm in Nova Scotia. The beautiful property overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and acts as both the satellite rural studio for Mackay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects and as an architectural testing ground. For almost 30 years, MacKay-Lyons has used the cliff-side site to explore ideas of form, materiality and building in the landscape. The campus mixes old and new, as reclaimed historic buildings sit next to modern structures unified by their palette.Save this picture!© James BrittainThe latest addition, Enough House, provides accommodation for an intern architect to work closely with MacKay-Lyons. The cabin is an essay in economy: space, budget, schedule and aesthetic. It shares the same minimalist ethic as the adjacent, 1830’s schoolhouse. But whereas the schoolhouse is classical and an essay in wood detailing, Enough House is developed from materiality that is thoroughly contemporary: all Corten outside and many rusted steel totems inside. Its exposed Douglas fir plywood sheathing, the wide stained pine floorboards and the plywood cabinetry match the rusted palette, giving the building a monolithic effect.Save this picture!© James BrittainSave this picture!Ground and Second Floor PlansEnough House’s simple form recalls the archetypal child’s image of a house. It was partially inspired by the residence of Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis, where MacKay-Lyons played as a child. Lewis lived in a simple structure that consisted of a bedroom upstairs and a single room downstairs with a stove, stairs and a window to paint beside. Enough House is similarly restrained in terms of programming, with a living space, kitchen and two bedrooms.Save this picture!© James BrittainSave this picture!© James BrittainThe proto-urban infill project has a pivotal position in the campus that actively engages with all of the other structures by framing courtyards. As a landscape viewing instrument it seems to own the pastoral valley to the north and east through a generous 24-foot wide corner window.

They hit him, insulted him, confiscated his equipment, and then took him and his brother-in-law back to their police station, where they held them for two nights on suspicion of “attempted theft,” and finally released them on 28 May.“We condemn the unacceptable behaviour of these Argentinian police who not only had no warrant but also directly targeted a journalist who was trying to do his job to report the news,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. “This was a serious press freedom violation. The justice system must identify and punish the police officers responsible.”Several reporters were harassed and physically attacked by police during major demonstrations last year in Argentina, which is ranked 52nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. RSF_en Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the outrageous behaviour of an Argentinian police unit that physically attacked and then arbitrarily arrested a photographer during an illegal operation in a low-income district of Buenos Aires on 26 May, thereby preventing him from covering their activities.center_img to go further News November 19, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Argentina ArgentinaAmericas Condemning abuses Violence News Source: Emergentes (@emergentemedio) Organisation ArgentinaAmericas Condemning abuses Violence Help by sharing this information last_img read more

Walk-Off Win in 12th Inning for PCC Baseball Against East LA

first_img Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy The PCC baseball team celebrates its walk-off win Tuesday, image by Richard QuintonShortstop Thomas Castro’s sacrifice fly to center scored pinch runner Cameron Tuck in the 12th inning Tuesday to give the Pasadena City College baseball team an 8-7 victory over East Los Angeles in a South Coast Conference game. Played at Brookside Park’s Jackie Robinson Memorial Field, the marathon took four hours and 10 minutes to play and finished while under the lights.The Lancers (4-12 overall, 1-3 in the SCC) ended a number of program losing streaks, including a 10-game streak this season, an 18-game string in conference play dating back to last season, and a 7-game streak v. East LA (last beat the Huskies on March 15, 2012). A 15-game losing streak at PCC’s home diamond also was halted.PCC first-year head coach Pat McGee won his first SCC game and his first at home after eight straight Brookside defeats that opened the season. The Lancers had started the season 3-2.The Lancers received several big performances, including from the sophomore Castro, who went 3-for-6, and knocked in the winning run in his seventh plate appearance. Another key player was designated hitter Anthony Fickewirth, who also batted 3-for-6 and ripped his second double of the contest to lead off the 12th inning.McGee sent in pinch runner Tuck, who was sacrificed bunted to third base by Joe Willard before Castro lifted a deep fly to bring in Tuck. The team mobbed Castro to celebrate the walk-off win (see photo).Reliever Sam Stavang (one shutout inning) picked up the victory. Starter Nick Esparza made the longest appearance by a Lancer this season, pitching seven strong innings, allowing seven hits, three runs, walking one and striking out six. He left with his team leading 6-3. Both sophomore Jason Marquez and freshman Anthony Mizrahi each hurled two scoreless innings prior to Stavang.The Lancers exploded for their biggest inning of the season, scoring six runs in the bottom of the second inning to take a 6-0 lead. PCC had five hits and took advantage of three ELAC errors. Willard, second baseman Robert Mier and third baseman Joe Quire all had RBI singles in the frame.The Huskies (7-9, 1-3 in SCC play) battled back and tied it at 7-7 with four runs in the top of the eighth.  A passed ball allowed Shun Tsunoda to score the deadlock run.PCC had the potential winning run at second base in the ninth, and at third base in both the 10th and 11th innings but Huskies’ reliever Eric Gutierrez got out of all three jams. Gutierrez’ luck ran out in the 12th as the Lancers pushed across the game-winner.Quire and leftfielder PJ DeZotell each had two hits in the 14-hit Pasadena attack.The Lancers continue their 3-game series with the Huskies at East LA on Thursday, March 12 in a 6 p.m. evening first pitch. The finale is Saturday, March 14 at 12 noon back at JR Field. 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Sports Walk-Off Win in 12th Inning for PCC Baseball Against East LA By ROBERT LEWIS Published on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 | 11:08 am Community News More Cool Stuff Top of the News Business News Community News HerbeautyThese Fashion Tips Are Making Tall Girls The Talk Of The TownHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Celebrities People Don’t Love AnymoreHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyRobert Irwin Recreates His Father’s Iconic PhotosHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAmazing Sparks Of On-Screen Chemistry From The 90-sHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?

Now that will be standard practice industry-wide.”Homebuyers will finally see how much money their agent stands to earn on any home for sale, letting them evaluate whether they’re getting good value for their money,” said Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman. “On the other side of the deal, people listing their home will find out what other sellers are paying buyers’ agents, without having to take their agents’ word for it. This information could usher in a new era of price competition that saves consumers billions of dollars in fees.”The NAR/DOJ agreement also forbids real estate agents from misrepresenting that buyer broker services are free.Most homeowners don’t fully comprehend how their agents are paid, found a 2019 survey commissioned by Redfin, which, more specifically, showed 61% of homebuyers did not understand commissions. “This leaves buyers unable to compare agent services and evaluate them on service and price,” Redfin reported.”In a typical home sale transaction, the seller pays the fees of both their agent and the buyer’s agent,” according to the latest from Redfin data journalist Lily Katz. “The total commission is normally 5%–6%, with about half paid to the seller’s agent and half to the buyer’s agent.”The DOJ settlement only impacts buyer’s agent commissions, which are the focus of the latest Redfin report. Past research has indicated that price transparency across industries often leads to lower prices.“When a homeowner can see that their neighbor offered a 2.5% buyer’s agent commission rate, it makes it much easier to justify offering a similar rate when they sell their home,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather.Technology and other factors have led to increasingly lower commissions for buyer’s agents, as well, Katz wrote. In a red-hot seller’s market, some have realized that finding a buyer will be a cinch, regardless of the commission they offer to the buyer’s agent, Katz noted.“I’ve been talking with some of my sellers about offering no more than 2.5% given the lack of inventory,” Sylva Khayalian, a Redfin real estate agent in Los Angeles told Katz. “There’s such a huge shortage of houses for sale that most homes will attract a long line of eager buyers no matter what. As a result, many sellers feel they don’t need to compensate the buyer’s agent as much for that part of the process.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Buyers’ Agent Fees Could Drop With Updated Transparency Regulations Previous: How Many Mortgage Holders Are Still Utilizing Forbearance?
