The sacramental wine we use is 18% alcohol….about double that of table wine. I would surprised if a virus or bacterium could survive that level of alcohol.

From the CDC: “Ethyl alcohol, at concentrations of 60%–80%, is a potent virucidal agent inactivating all of the lipophilic viruses (e.g., herpes, vaccinia, and influenza virus) and many hydrophilic viruses.” I researched communion wine for an Anglican Journal article. The idea that communion wine kills germs on the common cup seems to be a common church myth. Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York February 2, 2018 at 7:37 pm Readily available hand sanitizer also helps to prevent the spread of germs.Medium sized pump bottles placed in common areas is a quick and low cost option. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Course Director Jerusalem, Israel [Episcopal News Service] Has the sound of coughing and the sight of runny noses got you questioning whether to shake hands during the peace or sip from the common cup on Sunday?With this flu season said to be the worst since 2009, you have reason to be concerned for your health, but Episcopal leaders are advising parishioners to use common sense during worship without letting their precautions get in the way of participating fully in the life of the church.“There are, I suppose, a million ways to get the flu, and it troubles me that we bring so much of our attention to the common cup as a particular danger,” Diocese of New York Bishop Andrew Dietsche said in a Jan. 19 letter to the diocese, adding there is little evidence that sharing wine during the Eucharist poses a great risk of spreading illness.“I am concerned that extraordinary practices adopted during the flu season may send the message to our worshippers that the cup is a threat to us – that communion with one another is itself a threat to us – and that those perceptions may be hard to overcome later when the flu danger passes,” Dietsche writes.The Rev. Thomas Mousin, rector at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Charlestown, Massachusetts, summed up his advice to the congregation with the phrase, “Be a good neighbor.”“If you are sick, or feeling sick, stay home if you can,” Mousin said Jan. 25 in his weekly email message to parishioners. “It is OK to miss a Sunday at church if you have any reason to believe that you might be catching the flu or are capable of spreading it.”For those who are well enough to attend services, it also is fine if they choose a friendly wave instead of a handshake as a sign of peace, Mousin said, and “since we understand that Christ is fully present in both the bread and wine, you may choose to refrain from receiving the wine until the flu season has passed.”Mousin told Episcopal News Service in a phone interview that he agreed with Dietsche that fear of infection need not prevent Episcopalians from remaining active in their congregations, especially when celebrating the Eucharist.“We don’t want to discourage people from seeing this as a communal activity that’s meant to be part of our regular life,” Mousin said. His intent was to provide liturgical guidance to parishioners so they could decide for themselves whether to alter their routine during the flu season.Peak flu season typically occurs sometime from November through March, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which reports that flu activity now is widespread across the country.The influenza virus can cause mild to severe respiratory illness that in some cases can lead to hospitalization or death, especially among high-risk populations, such as young children, older patients and people with certain health conditions. Symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, fatigue and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea.The CDC’s top recommendation for preventing the flu is to receive the vaccine, even in years when the particular flu strain may seem more resistant to vaccination. Some Episcopal churches have done their part by hosting vaccination clinics, like the one in October at Grace Episcopal Church in Fairfield, California. Grace Episcopal wanted the community to see the church as a “health and wellness resource,” outreach coordinator Ron Cupid told the Daily Republic.The CDC’s other recommendations for preventing the flu’s spread include avoiding close contact with sick people, covering your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze, washing your hands with soap and water and avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth.Episcopal Relief & Development’s website also offers faith-based guidelines for how to respond to large-scale outbreaks of diseases like influenza. For example, clergy members should wash their hands before services. Other guidelines mirror the advice Mousin and others have given their parishioners: Stay home if you’re sick. Share the peace with a wave if you don’t want to shake hands.“Those who are concerned may abstain from communion or receive ‘in one kind’ (host only),” Episcopal Relief & Development advises, though it also says there is little need for concern. “Use of the common cup with proper purificator procedure presents relatively low risk; intinction should be avoided.”Cases of flu and hospitalizations are on the rise across the country, and the CDC said last week people are seeing their health care providers for flu-like illnesses at the highest rate since the 2009 pandemic, when the flu season also was dominated by fears of a strain called “swine flu.” Congregations took special precautions during that flu outbreak, too, with some going as far as to replace the handshake with a bow and doing away with the communal cup altogether.The precautions being considered this year aren’t limited to Episcopal congregations.The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland, Maine, announced in January it was asking parishes to suspend certain rituals of Mass: sharing wine, shaking hands at the peace and holding hands during the Lord’s Prayer. In Buffalo, New York, the Roman Catholic diocese issued a similar list of directives, including a command to parishes to drain their holy water fonts and clean them regularly.Mousin emphasized that the precautions at St. John’s are voluntary, and he hasn’t noticed a decrease in the 75 to 80 people who typically attend the church’s two services on Sunday.“Our parish has not, knock on wood, been significantly affected by the flu this season,” he said.Dietsche, in his letter to the Diocese of New York, shared his personal list of precautions, which he followed during the 2009 flu outbreak and is following this year, starting with getting the flu shot and washing his hands often.“I never failed to drink from the common cup. I never failed to shake the hands of my brothers and sisters as I greeted them at the door. I used a little Purell after those greetings. I washed my hands before I ate food.“I didn’t worry about getting the flu at church.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Perhaps reminding folks of this as an alternative to drinking from the Chalice should be done at some point during the Eucharist. I also use hand sanitizer before and after the peace and usually end up passing it around to those near me. And no, I’m not a germaphobe, just using common sense.

The TH House is located at a new urban area in the outskirt of Hanoi. The house is a very popular type of house in Vietnam that the main structure was already built by the developer of the whole area. The people buying this kind of house usually need to do the “finishing” work before moving in. But the skeleton of the house itself causes a lot of problems, mostly related to natural ventilation and lighting. So the question for the architect is how to finish the construction to simultaniously solve all the problems coming from this skeleton and have a humble difference while still keeping the same structural elements to the surrounding houses.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe solution comes first from the interior space. The architect proposed to cut over some floor slabs, creating more vertical connections from the first floor to the roof level. This way inserts two others internal tubes bringing natural ventilation and lighting deep inside the house. The residents have more freedom to interact physically to each other through these open spaces.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Quang DamTo strengthen the connection between the floors, the material of flower tile is used continuously from the wall of one tube to the floor next to another tube, exiting at the facade of the house. This solution of using material blurs the space vertically and horizontally, connecting all floors in a direct and physical way.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Quang DamThe house location is not far from a noisy rail track and the front elevation faces harsh sunlight at the noon time. Thus a system of aluminum screen with “balconies” is used for the facade. It creates a new protecting skin wrapping the entire outer surface, while still has some openings to bring nature to the house. The “green balconies” use the trees mostly taking from the green area in front of the house.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Quang DamAt the space on the second floor between the two new tubes, a reading room is inserted with high level of flexibility. By using a group of cubes at different ways, the residents can read books, work, sleep, play as a group or watch movies together on different gestures… The platform and the shelf not only can store things but also create a frame for people to do unlimited activities on their own way.Project gallerySee allShow lessClub Med Shanghai Office / 100architectsSelected ProjectsHall of Literature & Garden at Taizhou High School / Architectural Design & Research…Selected Projects Sharelast_img read more

The starting point for this project was a building from the 1990s that featured a non-habitable gable tile roof, with exclusive access from the top-floor flats. The building is located in a prime area of ​​the city of Lisbon – Campo de Ourique – and the chance of vertical expansion was a very attractive solution, since it would be possible to double the area of ​​the apartment.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraThe apartment, a 3-bed flat on a single floor layout, had a sun exposure facing East-West. The living room and kitchen are West facing and the three bedrooms, served by two bathrooms, face East. The existing tile roof had a reduced height and had no thermal insulation, which made the top floor thermally very uncomfortable.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionThe needs of this family with four children were to have a large multi-purpose space where they could live and play. This area should be supported by storage areas as generous as possible. Given the location of the building, perched on a hill, they also wanted a terrace to enjoy the surrounding view.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraOur intervention was thus driven by programmatic needs and urban constraints. These factors led to the maintenance of the gabled tiled roof and a terrace on the back façade of the building. We proposed a wide space, taking advantage of the areas with the highest available height next to the ridge, where three different zones are developed – office, children’s zone and living area. The reduced height areas were used for the storage spaces.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraWe’ve put in place a very simple language for this roof extension, entirely in wood. The two top walls were kept white, giving strength to the architectural gesture of the intervention. On the terrace we sought to achieve a continuity between the interior and the exterior through large glazed windows and the continuity of the wooden floor. The limits of the terrace were set with a very simple and quite transparent designed railing.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Half House / Boro Architects + Cochineal DesignSelected ProjectsGrosvenor Avenue / fourth_spaceSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Lisboa, PortugalLocation to be used only as a reference.

No pledge of allegiance to racism

By on

first_imgEli Harold, Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid, Oct. 2.My son Jeremiah Boykin called me from school on Friday, Feb. 16, to tell me that he was dismissed from class because he did not stand for the pledge of allegiance. His constitutional rights were violated. He was verbally and almost physically assaulted by the person supposed to teach him anatomy.The teacher, a Mr. Himes, showed anger and hostility while shouting: “My father fought in the war for the anthem. Respect the anthem! Do you understand?” while pointing in my son’s face to the point where he was scared and had to back up.People think we don’t like the song, and that is true! It doesn’t match up with most Black people’s lives in America, where Black children and adults young or elderly are shot down by police who act as judge and jury on behalf of the system of racism and the thin blue line.I say: No more abuse that whittles away at you to make you feel ashamed to be Black. It is my duty to take on the system for my Black children. They don’t know their own strengths yet. I am here to tell the world that you are worthy, loving, charismatic, smart and a pleasure to raise.I propose taking police out of the schools to stop the school-to-prison pipeline. Give the extra money in pay to the teachers and set up proper vetting of these teachers so that every Black child can get a proper, dignified education.Sit out the pledge of allegiance. The Supreme Court of the United States, in West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 (1943), already stated you have this right:“If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein.“We think the action of the local authorities in compelling the flag salute and pledge transcends constitutional limitations on their power, and invades the sphere of intellect and spirit which it is the purpose of the First Amendment to our Constitution to reserve from all official control.”Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the nationnal anthem to shed light on the fact that our Black children are being killed and beaten down by police. He is now a vilified person by the white media and masses and has been targeted by the NFL for exercising his constitutional rights while Black. He is now blacklisted by the NFL.I stand with Colin Kaepernick and Jeremiah Boykin. Both asserted that the actions of whiteness and white America caused them to sit out the anthem.Fighting racism is not a crime. My daughter Takiyah Thompson proved that, when all charges were dropped against her for allegedly taking down a Confederate statue in Durham. Racism in schools and elsewhere is the true crime. Teachers who carry out acts to demean and demoralize young Black people are the true criminals that must be dealt with swiftly.Mikisa ThompsonDurham, N.C.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Honestly, I’ll take any direction at this point. The next wave comes through as we head from Friday afternoon through the overnight. It’s probably done before sunrise on Saturday morning. That round of moisture looks relatively minor- a tenth to maybe half an inch tops.”After a short respite, Martin says wave two comes in on Sunday.“In particular we’re looking Sunday afternoon/evening on through Monday. That round looks like it could be a little bit stronger packing anywhere from a quarter to maybe one inch if thunderstorms come together. About 80 percent of the state is seeing rain that time around.”Wave three comes through Tuesday afternoon/evening through Wednesday morning.“That one ‘s a little bit up in the air in terms of moisture. I’m going to say a quarter to three quarters of an inch with coverage around 80 percent of the state. We see a cool down coming behind that system and we should be slightly cooler the balance of next week but also drier Wednesday afternoon right on through at least Saturday. We might be able to stretch that to Sunday.” SHARE More Rain for the Weekend and to Start Next Week Facebook Twitter By Eric Pfeiffer – Oct 22, 2020 Previous articleRegistration Open Now for Indiana Farm Bureau Virtual ConventionNext articleRegistration Open Now for Indiana Farm Bureau Virtual Convention on the HAT Friday Podcast Eric Pfeifferlast_img read more

FranceEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders also stressed on 13 January that the courts should never take the view that journalists were police auxiliaries. “The protection of sources is an inviolable principle to which there can be no exceptions. We consider that this legal gesture has just one aim which is to intimidate the journalists’ sources,” it said.

Police with her noted all the newspaper’s fax numbers and seized two computers belonging to journalists Olivia Recasens and Jean-Michel Décujis, in a bid to identify their sources on the doping story. Police and the magistrate questioned journalist Christophe Labbé the same afternoon while Décujis will be interviewed on 14 January.The Nanterre prosecutor’s office launched a legal action at the start of 2004 for violating the confidentiality of an investigation after Le Point on 22 January carried extracts of phone-tapped conversations ordered by Judge Richard Pallain in the doping scandal involving cycling competitors in the Confidis case.Divulging the results of phone-tapping can be seen as a violation of confidentiality of an investigation.The courts on 14 December ordered Le Point’s management to quickly produce full details of the newspaper’s hierarchy with details of all staff phone and fax numbers. Chief Executive Officer Franz-Olivier Giesbert, only sent the judge the same details that are published in the newspaper itself.L’Equipe had on 9 April 2004 carried extensive extracts of official interviews with several Cofidis riders, some of whom were under investigation in the alleged doping scandal within the cycle team.A Nanterre judge decided after the management of Cofidis had issued a writ against l’Equipe that the confidentiality of the investigation did not bind the daily’s journalists.Reporters Without Borders, the French federation of press agencies and reporters in the written and broadcast press in September 2004 set up a working group with the aim of formulating clear proposals to the Justice Minister to ensure permanent protection of sources. “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says FranceEurope – Central Asia RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story News to go further May 10, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
