Saint Mary’s lecture series to celebrate St. Teresa of Avila

first_imgKeri O’Mara | The Observer The Center for Spirituality (CFS) at Saint Mary’s announced its spring 2015 lecture series entitled “Saint Teresa of Avila: Carmelite Mystic and Doctor of the Church.”The series will include two talks and one panel discussion, marking the 500th anniversary of Saint Teresa’s birth. According to a press release, the Saint Mary’s College Annual Endowed Lecture Series Fund will sponsor the lectures, which are free and open to the public and will take place in the Vander Vennet Theatre.According to Michelle Egan, associate director of the CFS, the center hosts a series each fall and spring semester encompassing a specific topic or theme.This spring series will follow the 2014 lecture series, “Unitas, Veritas, Caritas: Catholicism and the Liberal Arts and Sciences,” which explored the relationship of faith and reason across disciplines.“When deciding on a theme, we consider the current contemporary religious and theological issues, or if there are any significant milestones within the Church,” Egan said. “The 500th anniversary of Teresa of Avila’s birth is one such milestone.”While other CFS lecture series have focused on larger concepts, such as “facets of justice” or “leadership of Catholic women both past and current,” Egan said the spring 2015 series will discuss rather particular aspects of Teresa’s life and work.The first lecture, titled “Teresa of Avila: Prayer is an Adventure in Love,” will take place Feb. 17 at 7:30 p.m.“Our first lecturer, Keith Egan, Aquinas chair of Catholic theology emeritus at Saint Mary’s, will explore Teresa’s thoughts on prayer and love because for this saint and doctor of the Church, she spent her life searching for God through prayer,” Egan said. “For her, prayer is an ‘exercise in love.’”On March 3 at 7:30 p.m., the second lecture, “Teresa the Theologian on the Human Person as Capax Dei” will feature a visiting scholar from Fairfield University.“Elizabeth Dreyer, religious studies professor at Fairfield University, will consider Teresa’s work as an incarnational theologian and how that has or hasn’t prospered in the history of Christian theology and spirituality,” Egan said.The third and final lecture of the series will feature a panel of both undergraduate and post-graduate students from Saint Mary’s and Notre Dame, titled “Teresa and Us: The Significance of Teresa of Avila for Young Catholic Women Today.” The panel will take place March 19 at 7:30 p.m.“Our final event in the series will be a panel discussion about the significance of Teresa for today’s young Catholic women,” Egan said. “Teresa was certainly a leader in the Church, she was a religious founder, a reformer, and her writings have been, and continue to be, very influential to theologians.”“How she is a source of wisdom is just as relevant today to young women as she was several hundred years ago,” she said.According to Egan, this series furthers the CFS’s purpose, as the organization was established in 1984 as a center to “build a theologically well-grounded spirituality among members of the College and greater South Bend community,” according to the press release.Egan said the events also support the religious and academic missions of the College.“World-renowned scholars come to Saint Mary’s to share their wisdom on contemporary religious issues and to address broader issues of how faith and reason interact,” Egan said.Senior Madison Maidment said she enjoys having the opportunity to hear such scholars discuss aspects of spirituality that are not often elaborated upon in religion courses as fully as possible.“I remember a lot of my friends who are nursing majors were really interested in the fall series because it had lectures concerning things like health care professions and biology,” Maidment said. “This spring series interests me a little more because it gives students a chance to get to know a saint on a more personal, relatable level, and I think that’s an awesome opportunity.“… But both series this school-year have brought topics to the table that aren’t often discussed in our daily lives, and I think these unique themes appeal to a wide variety of students.”Tags: Center for Spirituality, Center for Spirituality lecture series, CFS lecture series, Michelle Egan, Saint Teresa of Avila, Saint Teresa of Avila: Carmelite Mystic and Doctor of the Churchlast_img read more

FOCUS on science

first_img“They’re a lot of fun to be around,” Rymer said. He travels daily from his home in Kennesaw to attend classes at UGA and to teach.Weiglein asked for a Project FOCUS teacher because she saw how the program helped another class. “They were always doing interesting things out in the hall with the students,” Weiglein said. “I wanted my students to have that … they’re always asking, ‘Is Mr. Gary coming?’”FOCUS students have also learned to appreciate their partner teachers. “The kids are the best thing about this program, and my teacher that I work with,” said Caitlin Walther, a senior psychology, pre-nursing major from Atlanta. “She is a saint in my eyes and has restored my faith in teachers.”“Project FOCUS has given me a newfound respect for teachers,” said Tripp Wall, a fourth-year biology, pre-med major from Toccoa. He plans to become an anesthesiologist. “I never realized how much of a pain it could be to teach a classroom of students. I never realized that some students just cannot learn as fast as others.”FOCUS helps students “improve their communication skills,” Knauft said. “If you can manage a class full of third graders … you learn to do a lot of thinking on your feet.”The program also has students analyzing teaching methods. “Because the UGA students do a lot of active teaching, they’ve become a lot less tolerant of poor teaching in their own UGA courses,” Knauft said. Hugs for gradesProject FOCUS helps promote science in a positive way to elementary students and teachers who work with UGA students. This positive emphasis has its rewards. “I get hugs for grades,” said Renee Pascale, a junior biology education major from Atlanta. “No other class has that in the curricula.”Back in Weiglein’s classroom, Rymer gets comments like: “Wow, you’re a giant.”“I can sum [the experience] up like this,” he said. “I have been blessed in so many ways. I found a way I could help. I believe that these kids will someday be involved in shaping our nation. If I can be a positive influence, and help better someone’s life, why not?”(Stephanie Schupska is a news editor with the University ofGeorgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.) Teacher appreciationRecently, children studied different ecosystems in Wendy Weiglein’s kindergarten classroom at South Jackson Elementary School. During science center time, Rymer passed around rocks and shells with his group of four students.center_img By Stephanie SchupskaUniversity ofGeorgiaPaper people and artwork dance from the ceiling as Gary Rymer asks kindergarteners a question. During most of the University of Georgia senior’s courses he listens to lectures and participates in labs. In his Project FOCUS class, he’s the teacher.Project FOCUS – Fostering Our Community’s Understanding of Science – is a partnership between school districts and UGA, said David Knauft, a UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences professor. This partnership is increasingly important as schools struggle to meet federal government requirements in adequate yearly progress. AYP includes improvements in science test scores in middle and high schools.“As of right now, there is no high stakes testing for science in the elementary schools, so teachers spend more time working with reading, math and language arts,” he said. “Our students help the teachers give more emphasis to sciences.“One thing we realize is that the FOCUS students don’t always go back in the class for a second semester.” But after a UGA student has taught, the elementary school students are more “excited about science. The children tell our FOCUS students that they want to grow up and be scientists, just like the UGA students.”In 2002, Knauft helped start the semester-long program in which UGA students teach elementary students science two days per week. FOCUS enrolled 40 students for the fall semester. The program, which started at Barnett Shoals Elementary School in Athens, Ga., now extends to several other schools.Undergraduates must have 12 hours of science courses and a 2.5 GPA to apply, but Knauft sees majors varying from genetics to marketing.last_img read more

S&P downgrades ratings of six U.S. shale gas producers, puts negative outlook on sector

first_imgS&P downgrades ratings of six U.S. shale gas producers, puts negative outlook on sector FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):S&P Global Ratings cut the credit ratings of six pure-play shale gas producers late Feb. 3, based on worries that they will not be able to refinance billions of dollars in bonds because of expected low gas prices and chronic overspending to drill for gas the market does not want.Ratings also moved the credit outlook for eight of nine pure-play gas producers under its review to negative, with only tiny Marcellus and Utica shale producer Montage Resources Corp. getting an affirmation of its B- rating with a stable outlook.The downgrades and deteriorating outlook came in an environment where natural gas prices are forecast to stay below $3/MMBtu for the next two years, with break-even prices for producers estimated to be $1.80/MMBtu in the Marcellus Shale and $1.94/MMBtu in the Utica Shale, according to S&P Global Platts Analytics. The less-than-$1/MMBtu margin will leave little wiggle room for bad wells, warm winter weather and payments to lenders, much less cash back to shareholders.“We are particularly concerned about some of the issuers’ ability to access the capital markets given investor aversion to the space and their current bond trading yields,” Ratings said in the note accompanying the ratings cuts.“The market is trying to force a pullback in activity,” Tudor Pickering Holt & Co. oil and gas analyst Sameer Panjwani said. Panjwani noted that while producers have hedges to protect production this year, those hedges are not in place for 2021. The analyst thinks that producers need to cut spending far more than their drilling plans in order to balance both their books and an oversupplied gas market.The ratings cut will have an immediate impact on America’s largest natural gas producer, EQT Corp. According to the prospectus for a $1.75 billion bond offering that EQT closed Jan. 21, the S&P Global Ratings downgrade, combined with an earlier downgrade by Moody’s Investors Service, could add up to 0.50% to EQT’s 6.125% and 7% coupon rates for the new bonds due in 2025 and 2030.[Bill Holland]More ($): S&P downgrades 6 shale gas producers; outlook ‘negative’ on sectorlast_img read more

Association JRE Croatia is richer for two more restaurants

first_imgAnd Bob’s Tavern stands out with its appearance on Instagram: the photos that follow life in and around the tavern are all just not a boring string of new menus and dishes. The pictures are full of emotions and sincere desire to communicate the values ​​that Bobi cares about: the sea, nature, family, Murter, Kornati, togetherness…, worth peek at the profile! Boba, a family nickname – a kind of dedication to a family story and a link to Murter – is the name of the tavern where he chefs Vjeko Basic. For years, one of the cult Dalmatian restaurants has nurtured a true culinary tradition based on fresh seafood, as well as vegetables and spices from the restaurant’s ecological garden. The family tavern is one of the few on the coast that is open all year round and has its regular guests, although it is relatively isolated from established tourist routes. In addition to the great kitchen, the reason is a pleasant interior with an open fireplace and, of course, friendly and professional staff led by an eternally smiling chef. Marko Gajski with Vis cake (photo by Spori Zecov) Marko Gajski and Drazen Matkovic (photo by Spori Zecov) Marko Gajski, a computer science graduate, appeared at Masterchef in 2011 and since then has been developing his style of imaginative creations of traditional and international dishes, with the basic premise: he uses various processing techniques to make full use of food and get the most out of taste. In addition to the magnificent symphony of flavors and aromas, his plates are adorned with Instagram appeal, so he says that guests sometimes forget to eat the dish served, especially his version of Komiža bread. Restaurant LD within the boutique hotel Lesic Dimitri Palace for several years now it has been an unavoidable stop for any hedonist who sticks to himself. Investment banker Michael Unsworth who fell in love with Croatia more than twenty years ago, the owner and originator of the idea of ​​Korcula becoming a hedonistic brand on the tourist map of the world patiently built a vacation spot in top, uniquely decorated apartments, and then added the enjoyment of food and wines take care of two Korčula Slavonians: Head Marko Gajski i sommelier Dražen Matković. He tries to use fresh and home-made ingredients that are not always easy to find, so he honestly answers that he is sometimes forced to look for the best that can be found anywhere in the world at that moment. He enjoys preparing seafood specialties, but his love is still related to Slavonia and he considers the black Slavonian pig (fajferica) a food that is a treat for every chef because the possibilities of use and processing techniques are incredible. Like Marko, Vjeko has established his own network of suppliers of fish and organic food on Murter and Kornati, where everyone knows him, and often with his friend and chef of the Opat restaurant on Kornati, Ante Božikov, he cooks together to bring guests closer to traditional Murter and Kurnat recipes. . The basic prerequisites for membership for restaurants and chefs are high professional standards and creative cuisine, so it is not surprising that the list includes Korcula’s fine dining restaurant Lesic Dimitri and chef Marko Gajski, and Murter tavern Bob in which the chef Vjeko Basic. True food lovers from whom they make top gourmet delights have rightly found themselves on this prestigious list, and their magical world of gastronomy is an experience that will not be forgotten and will be retold for a long time… Along with JRE, Dimitri Lešić Palace has been a member of a renowned association since 2013 Relais & Chateaux which under the motto All around the world, unique in the world has been awarding the most prestigious family hotels, their restaurants and chefs for more than 60 years, and has been on the Michelin list of recommendations since last year. List of listed restaurants JRE Croatia (in alphabetical order): Vjeko Basic, chef (photo by Facebook @konobabobamurter) Vjeko Bašić: Blacksmith’s Carpaccio (photo by Facebook @konobabobamurter) The changes of the seasons are clearly visible on Bob’s table, not only on land but also under the sea. Monkfish is Vjek’s favorite, whether on broth, in white wine or shrimp and truffle sauce surrounded by homemade polenta with capers and sun-dried tomatoes. But when it’s the season, grilled cuttlefish or squid polenta in Bobi is a great recommendation – because Vjeko doesn’t complicate things in the kitchen and sticks to that rule even when preparing carpaccio or sushi, using modern culinary techniques with a refined feel for presenting dishes. Vjeko Basic was declared chef in 2018 in the selection of the prestigious Gault & Millau guide, and the Bob tavern is not only on their list of recommendations but also on Michelin’s list of restaurants that should not be missed. Young restaurateurs from Europe, an association of the most creative chefs and gastronomically ambitious restaurants from 15 European countries and Australia at the beginning of this year got two new members from Croatia, so now JRE Croatia has 15 members (more than 360 in total)! Viška pogača Marko Gajski (photo by Spori Zecov) In addition to all the tasks related to the functioning of the kitchen, Marko set himself the task of building a network of local suppliers who are able to monitor restaurants and supply them with local ingredients: he already has a supply of high quality oils, yeasts, flour, jams and all other things that can marinate over the winter. or pickle, it is agreed to plant vegetables and fruits on the island and cooperate with local fishermen.

Mourinho and Tottenham should sit tight, says Redknapp

first_img Loading… Harry Redknapp does not think his former club Tottenham should rush into the transfer market, despite the loss of key forward Harry Kane. Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho England captain Kane suffered a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring on New Year’s Day and is expected to be out of action until April. His absence leaves Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho without an obvious first-choice centre-forward, but Redknapp thinks spending big on a replacement would be a mistake. Speaking on The Transfer Show, Redknapp said: “I love Harry, what a player. “But they got away with it last year [when Kane was out from early April until the end of the season]. “[Heung-Min] Son, Lucas Moura, Dele Alli, managed to find a way of playing. They got to the Champions League final.Advertisement “A lot of teams nowadays play without a central striker. “I don’t think I would dive in now and take somebody who, in three months time, is going to have to sit on the bench and will be surplus to requirements. “If I was Jose, I think I would sit tight. “They have unearthed a young kid out of the reserves this week [Japhet Tanganga], who came in and played all across the back four – he’s been great.
