James Kowalski speaks at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York on May 22, 2017. Photo: Cathedral of St. John the Divine[Episcopal News Service] The Very Rev. James Kowalski, who served as the dean of New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine from 2002 to 2017, has reached an agreement with the Episcopal Church in Connecticut to end a clergy misconduct case involving sexual abuse allegations from 1984.Kowalski was accused of engaging in “acts of sexual abuse and sexual exploitation” with a college freshman who had previously been a parishioner at a church he served in Newtown, Connecticut; the diocese did not specify her age except to say she was under 21 at the time, meaning there is no statute of limitations for making the allegation under the church’s Title IV disciplinary process. Kowalski, now 68 and retired, would have been 33 at the time.“The claims that have been put forth, about an incident alleged to have happened more than 30 years ago, are deeply upsetting to me and my family,” Kowalski wrote in an email to Episcopal News Service. “Although there are aspects of [the] accord that I do not agree with, I believe it is in the best interest of me, my family and the church.”The accord, announced on July 17, resolves the Title IV case against Kowalski. Kowalski agreed to the accord after the diocese decided that the case would proceed to a hearing panel, which is similar to a trial court. The accord means the case is settled and will not go to a hearing panel.“This was an extremely difficult decision, but I believe that going through a contested hearing process would have provided neither healing nor resolution,” Kowalski told ENS.The terms of the accord have not been made public; possible outcomes in these types of cases include suspension and deposition (being removed from the clergy). The accord did not exercise either of these options, according to Robin Hammeal-Urban of the diocese’s Office of Mission Integrity & Training.Rather, the accord has “put in place other actions to bring healing to those who have been hurt and safety to those who might be at risk,” Hammeal-Urban told ENS.The complainant came forward about a year ago, said Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas, who told ENS that he remains committed to working toward “wholeness and healing for all involved, and also with respect to matters of accountability and transparency and honesty.”Kowalski was the dean of St. John the Divine, seat of the Diocese of New York and one of the largest cathedrals in the world, for 15 years until his retirement in 2017. Before that, he served at several parishes in Connecticut. According to the diocesan statement laying out the charges of sexual misconduct and conduct unbecoming of a clergy member, the complainant first knew Kowalski as a priest in her parish – Trinity Episcopal Church in Newtown – starting around 1978, when she was in middle school. The complainant alleged that six years later, when she was a college freshman and Kowalski was serving at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Hartford, he visited her and kissed her “against her will … in a sexually explicit manner,” embraced her and asked her to lie in bed with him.The case will not be referred to law enforcement, Hammeal-Urban said.“Had the alleged offenses occurred before the complainant’s 18th birthday, then child protective services in the state of Connecticut would have immediately been notified,” she told ENS.In his own statement, New York Bishop Andrew Dietsche said that “during the fifteen years that [Kowalski] served as the dean of the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, no allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior were ever received by the Board of Trustees of the cathedral, nor by the bishop of New York. We remain proud of his exemplary performance as dean of our cathedral, and of the spirit with which he cooperated with the investigation in the Diocese of Connecticut.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Hackney-based charity Voyage Youth receives match-funding grant via The Good Exchange

first_imgHackney-based charity Voyage Youth receives match-funding grant via The Good Exchange  199 total views,  3 views today Melanie May | 29 November 2018 | News Hackney-based charity Voyage Youth has received a £15,000 match-funding grant from the Englefield Charitable Trust through not-for-profit cloud matching platform, The Good Exchange. Voyage Youth was originally established by the Black Police Association Charitable Trust in 2002 in response to concerns over increased youth violence and murders, and to address issues concerning racial disproportionality in London boroughs following the Macpherson report recommendations. Its core mission is to reduce the inequalities and disparities faced by young Black and Minority Ethnic people in employment, education and community settings.After winning a free fundraising project on The Good Exchange platform, Voyage Youth listed its empowerment programme, Young Leaders for Safer Cities (YLFSC) BTEC accredited course in leadership, with the aim of raising more than £80,000. Englefield Charitable Trust supports several different charitable purposes including youth groups. As the Trust’s estate includes residential and commercial property in Hackney, the Voyage Youth project was seen as a good match for a grant.By offering its grant as match funding which doubles the amounts raised, Englefield Charitable Trust (via The Good Exchange’s matching platform), aims to incentivise new grants, fundraising and donations from businesses, community groups and individuals in London and across the UK through their donations and/or fundraising activities.Paul Anderson MBE, Chief Executive at Voyage Youth, said: “We’re thrilled to have been awarded this match-funding grant by the Englefield Charitable Trust, which we hope will encourage further match funding from businesses and charitable foundations across the Borough that want to collaboratively help reduce youth crime in London.“The YLFSC programme helps equip disadvantaged BME youngsters to achieve their leadership potential and create a culture of youth leadership. We believe this will build a strong and powerful voice of young people supported and trained with the ability to challenge whilst creating stronger, resilient and safer communities. We look forward to continuing our work with the Englefield Charitable Trust, The Good Exchange and the wider funding and fundraising community to reach our funding goal.”Catherine Haig, Chair of trustees of Englefield Charitable Trust added: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Through the Englefield Charitable Trust’s collaboration with The Good Exchange, we found out about the fantastic work it does with young people in Hackney and it fitted all our criteria for a grant. “The Good Exchange platform also allows us the option of offering our donation as match funding which we hope will help Voyage Youth generate funds from other donors. We made a similar offer earlier this year to the Rosemary Appeal in West Berkshire, again through The Good Exchange, and were encouraged by how quickly this was matched by other funders and members of the public, effectively doubling our contribution and making a real difference to the charity.”last_img read more

Real-life Bristol based Santa Claus works year round to create 500 charity shoeboxes

first_img An 80-year-old tenant at Brunelcare’s ABC Centre, an extra care housing site in Bristol has spent the year creating over 500 gift-filled shoeboxes to deliver to charities during the festive season.Fran Clark starts work at the beginning of every January and works all year round. She began her role as Bristol’s Santa four years ago, after seeing an advert for the Shoebox Appeal in a church magazine.Sourcing items from charity shops, car boot sales and her local Knit and Natter groups, she often spends around one hour each morning filling the boxes with her festive finds. She gets help from ABC Centre Manager, Danielle Morgan and other friends who assist in wrapping and finding gifts for her. Pavers, a shoe shop based in Bristol’s The Galleries, also gets involved, putting aside 15+ shoeboxes each week for Fran to collect on her weekly trip into the city by bus.Fran has lived at Brunelcare’s ABC Centre for nine years, and receives support from the centre’s manager, Danielle, who provided her with a ‘workshop’ to craft her boxes in.Fran said:“My son used to live opposite me, so him and my grandchildren used to come over every day, but once I moved they couldn’t visit me as often. I initially felt lonely, but then I saw an advertisement about a shoebox appeal in a church magazine and I thought it was a great idea. I was given a room upstairs to work on the shoe boxes, and it has really helped me keep busy.”Each box contains a variety of items, with soap, flannels, toothpaste and a toothbrush being the main essentials. Men and women often receive clothes, dominoes and a pack of cards alongside their toiletries, while children are gifted with toys, books and colouring pencils. The boxes cost Fran around £5 each to make and she uses her own money alongside charitable contributions to make the boxes. Charities then collect the shoe boxes from Brunelcare’s ABC Centre on a first-come-first served basis. The charities that usually collect boxes are homeless shelters and children’s charities from Bristol.

Fort Worth culinary scene: fusing the casual and the contemporary

first_imgRussell Hodgeshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/russell-hodges/ Russell Kirkpatrick is the co-founder of the festival and the general manager of Fort Worth’s Reata Restaurant. He’s been working professionally in the culinary industry for nearly 20 years, and since he and his wife moved to Fort Worth in 2004, he said he’s seen the tremendous change in the city’s cuisine.“Years ago, Fort Worth was really thought of as a meat and potatoes kind of town,” he said. “Over the last 3-5 years, we’ve seen so much more cuisines blossom. It’s been really cool to see the evolution of our city’s palette.”When asked specifically about the city’s rising fine dining scene, Kirkpatrick said a big reason for its increasing popularity is something it has lacked for several years.“I think that restaurateurs are figuring out that you have to interject a little bit of personality with your professionalism and your service standards,” he said. “Ten to fifteen years ago, if you walked into a white tablecloth restaurant, you might not get too much personality… Now, especially in Fort Worth, you’re seeing that diners enjoy having a little conversation here and there with their meal, and they don’t want it to feel as robotic as a stuffy restaurant might have felt years ago.”This personality and excitement Kirkpatrick alludes to is one of the reasons he and co-founder Mike Micallef created the festival two years ago. It’s also why he said about 5,000 people are attending the festival each year since its inception.“I think [the festival] creates a lot of opportunities for a small restaurant to get out there in front of a large audience and really showcase what they do,” Kirkpatrick said. “Obviously, we have enough talented individuals here in town that we should be not only showcasing the chefs here in town, but also showcasing Fort Worth.” Pouring Glory: Self-made restaurateur revitalizing Fort Worth’s south side one craft beer at a time Russell Hodges printJon Bonnell knows great cuisine when he sees it.Since graduating from the New England Culinary Institute in 1997, the renowned chef, restaurant owner and Fort Worth native has been a mainstay in the food industry for more than two decades.Bonnell opened his first establishment, Bonnell’s Restaurant, in 2001. He’s also published two cookbooks and has appeared as a special guest on “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America” and Food Network’s “BBQ with Bobby Flay,” according to the restaurant’s website.Changing culinary scene on the horizonBonnell said he has seen a series of changes in the Fort Worth culinary scene that are pulling the city away from its casual dining roots and bringing it toward a more contemporary image.“Back in the 1980’s, the Fort Worth food scene — when you talk about fine dining — was either something at the country clubs or European restaurants,” Bonnell said. “Over time, Fort Worth [has] really started to develop its own cuisine, by elevating southwestern cuisine to the fine dining level.”Bonnell said he’s also seen restaurants in the city embrace more cultural and stylistic cuisines.“It’s pretty neat to see how the food scene in this city has really developed over the years,” he said. “Now we have every cuisine imaginable here in our own city.”City event uniting area chefsThe changes Bonnell has seen will become more vivid later this month when hundreds of chefs, restaurants, breweries, wineries and dessert shops participate in the Fort Worth Food and Wine Festival. The event spans from March 31 to April 3.The event is designed to showcase the variety of cuisines the city has to offer.The festival began two years ago and has continued to draw the city’s best culinary experts, and other talents around Dallas-Fort Worth. Chef’s prepare dishes that preserve the city’s traditional brand of comfort food and southwestern cuisine. They also introduce new cuisines that enable both chefs and visitors to expand their culinary horizons.“I think people will be impressed with how much diversity and elevation of the cuisine the city has reached,” Bonnell said.What to expectThe festival begins on Thursday, March 31 with a Barbecue Showdown at W.R. Watt Arena in Fort Worth’s Cultural District. Chef Committee Chair Sarah Hooton said approximately 15 pitmasters from the Dallas-Fort Worth area and beyond, will fire up their grills and prepare their specialty dishes for a panel of celebrity judges.More events include the higher-end Main Event located at Pier 1 Imports, “#latenight Desserts After Dark,” “Rise + Dine: A Brunch Inspired Tasting,” “Burgers, Brews & Blues” and the “Family Sunday Funday” picnic, the festival’s final event held on Monday, April 3 at Panther Island.Hooten said the Burgers, Brews & Blues event is the festival’s most popular event. She said she believes the event is so popular because of its laid-back format and style of cooking.“People in Fort Worth like their casual cuisine,” Hooten said. “They like their burgers and beer.”Hooton said the types of ingredients the competing chefs use to prepare their dishes are always changing. She said each of the events brings something unique to the table.“The chefs tend to change what they do almost every year [based on] of whatever they’re into that year,” she said. “Last year, pork belly was a very popular ingredient. This year, vegetables actually might be more of a popular ingredient. You can tell [the chefs] are focusing a lot more on putting vegetables and different flavors with their [dishes].”Hooton has worked with the festival since its inception in 2014. She’s also been working professionally in the culinary industry for more than six years at Fort Worth’s Central Market.Like Bonnell, she’s also taken heed of the city’s evolving food and drink scene.“There’s more awareness given to the chef in particular and their creative styles,” Hooten said. “People are more willing to try food based on a chef’s reputation. They’re excited to try some of these new restaurants because they know the chef. There’s just more room for them to be a little bit more creative here.”This creativity, Hooton said, is beneficial not only to the chefs of Fort Worth but to their customers as well.“Fewer chain places, more chef-driven, more fresh ingredients,” she said. “They’re more willing to try things like that. I think they’re opening up their palettes a little bit and they’re not so afraid to go try it.”While the events help stir the pot with fresh concepts and ingredients, they also maintain a sense of Fort Worth’s traditional culinary identity, which Bonnell believes is important for chefs to remember as they experiment with new ingredients and cuisines.“This is still Cowtown,” he said. “Everybody still loves our Tex-Mex, our barbecue and chicken fried steak, but it’s nice that our culinary scene now has so much diversity from top to bottom. The customers are so much more educated than they used to be. Everybody considers themselves a ‘foodie’ these days.” Facebook Facebook Local school auction fills the gap for improved learning environment Twitter Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Previous article15-40 Connection teaches students about young adult cancer risksNext articleNew website commemorating Fort Worth Latinos launches on César Chavez day.

(Nasdaq: INTU), the leader in online tax preparation, processing nearly 40 million tax returns last year alone, announced today the launch of its Latino-focused integrated marketing efforts. The year 2020 was an unpredictable and challenging year that forced many Latinos to make tough financial decisions. TurboTax, more than ever, is focused on providing resources and tools to assist and financially empower the Latino community. The brand has formed strategic media and community partnerships to promote access to key educational content and provide relief to those most in need. “TurboTax is committed to serving the Latino community by listening to their needs,” said Alejandra Molinari, Lead of TurboTax Latino Communications. “They are the fuel of entrepreneurship, fastest adopters of technology and a crucial demographic of our nation’s future. However, the Latino market also faces many challenges and as we rollout our marketing efforts, it is important for us as a brand to serve them with the tools and resources they need to be successful in their finances, starting with a better understanding of their own taxes.” Last year brought several events that could have impacted an individual’s tax filing situation. For this reason, TurboTax developed in-language tools to serve as a resource to the Latino community and support them throughout these unprecedented times; these include the Unemployment Center, a Self-Employed Coronavirus Relief Center, and the Coronavirus and Stimulus Center. TurboTax also offers TurboTax Live, so the Latino community can get answers to their tax questions as they go and a review of their return before they file. Additionally, NEW this tax season is the TurboTax Live Full Service offering which enables taxpayers to connect to a dedicated bilingual tax expert, who will prepare and file their tax return from start to finish, all from the comfort of their own home. Latino taxpayers with simple tax returns can take advantage of the TurboTax Live Basic limited time offer and have a bilingual tax expert review their return for free so they can be 100% confident their taxes are done right. This year’s TurboTax Latino marketing efforts include the “Straight To You” (Directamente a ti) advertising campaign, which reinforces that tax filers can file using TurboTax Live products, receiving the help of a bilingual tax expert along the way so they can file with total confidence. The campaign features two Latino targeted TV spots currently on air: “The Family Tax Expert”: In this spot, TurboTax Live tax experts have tax advice for everyone in the family. Covering everything from self-employed income, to home improvements and medical expenses, TurboTax bilingual experts can provide tax advice for even the most unique situations. “Your Abuela Can Answer That”: Abuela (grandmother) seems to know it all. She is answering most of the questions the TurboTax Live expert has for her granddaughter about her taxes. Luckily for the granddaughter, the TurboTax Live expert has got her covered and will completely prepare and file the tax return from start to finish, saving granddaughter time and providing confidence that her taxes are done right. Created by Wieden+Kennedy, the spots will air on Univision, Telemundo, Azteca America, and other networks. Furthermore, TurboTax Latino integrated marketing program will include the following key extensions: #LeadingConEducación: a corporate responsibility program in support of Latino youth and college students seeking financial support via scholarships to complete their college education. Scholarship applicants will have access to educational content to better position themselves for success when it comes to managing personal finances starting with their own taxes. The program is being executed in partnership with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation. #ViveFullService” Social Video Series: A series of culturally relevant video content created by Latino influencers highlighting the NEW TurboTax Live Full-Service experience and the benefits of working with TurboTax Live bilingual experts. #SmartDinero Partnership with WeAllGrow Latina Network: TurboTax and #WeAllGrow Latina Network embarked on their sixth year of partnership with the goal of engaging and educating Latina entrepreneurs and self-employed around the topic of finances and tax preparation. These efforts are being executed in partnership with Hispanic public relations agency Havas FORMULATIN. The agency’s work also includes both paid and earned media tactics as well as social media engagement throughout tax season. ABOUT INTUIT Intuit’s mission is to power prosperity around the world.

Witnesses at a House subcommittee hearing on Wednesday testified that the Dodd-Frank Act introduced new problems and may have even laid the groundwork for another financial crisis, according to an announcement from the House Financial Services Committee earlier this week.In Wednesday’s hearing titled “The Dodd-Frank Act and Regulatory Overreach,” the Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations examined the causes of the 2008 financial crisis and the subsequent passage of Dodd-Frank in 2010 along with the regulatory burdens that Dodd-Frank created.”Those who supported Dodd-Frank have been more concerned with helping special interests in Washington than their constituents back home and the proof is in the numbers,” said Representative Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin), chairman of the subcommittee. “Fewer people have returned to the work force than in any other modern recovery. Our community banks are closing every week, Main Street lenders are being slowly euthanized and the number one cause that I hear from people in Wisconsin is the excessive regulatory burden imposed by this administration. Dodd-Frank is a major cause of that burden.”Duffy said that the “crushing regulatory regime” of Dodd-Frank has perpetuated unemployment, stifled hiring, and made it harder for people to obtain loans to either buy a home or expand their business.One of the witnesses at the hearing, Dean and Professor of Law at the University of Virginia School of Law Paul G. Mahoney, said a consequence of Dodd-Frank will be fewer and larger banks in the United States, because Dodd-Frank has layered on “costly new regulations that the large banks can afford but smaller ones cannot.”Key takeaways from Wednesday’s hearing include: Dodd-Frank was hastily passed in reaction to the financial crisis and benefits big banks at the expense of consumers; the 2008 financial crisis was caused not by market failures but by bad federal government housing policies that pushed people into buying homes they could not afford, and that regulators charged with monitoring the financial system failed to act until it was too late despite having all the authority they needed to regulate the system; and that Dodd-Frank will be ineffective at preventing the next financial crisis because it failed to address the fundamental causes of the 2008 crisis, and it paved the way for the next financial crisis by passing “too big to fail” into law and allowing taxpayer-funded bailouts for financial institutions deemed as “systemically important.”Another witness at Wednesday’s hearing, Hester Peirce, Director of the Financial Markets Working Group at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, said that the drafters of Dodd-Frank were working without full information, since the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission which Congress charged with determining the cause of the financial crisis did not issue a report until six months after Dodd-Frank was passed into law.”As the failures and bailouts of the financial crisis accumulated, so too did the calls for a quick and thorough rewriting of the financial regulatory rulebook,” Peirce said. “The resulting Act was the product of fear and fury, not of careful analysis. Grounded in an inaccurate market failure narrative, Dodd-Frank expands regulators’ authority to enable them to play a more central role in managing the financial system and identifying and mitigating systemic risks. This approach to financial regulation, while a natural response to a market failure narrative, only increases the vulnerability of financial system to regulatory failure.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago May 14, 2015 1,277 Views Tagged with: Dodd-Frank Act Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations Regulatory Burdens Wall Street Reform About Author: Brian Honea Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more
