Dietsche and Bruce Macleod, president, Board of Trustees, Cathedral of St. John the Divine, have announced the appointment of the Rt. Rev. Clifton “Dan” Daniel III as interim dean of the cathedral, effective March 15.Daniel, who is currently the chairman of the Board of Trustees of General Theological Seminary in New York, most recently served as provisional bishop of the Diocese of Pennsylvania.In describing his life’s work that now has brought him to the cathedral, Daniel said, “I have served for 45 years as deacon, priest and bishop. In those years, I have served in settings ranging from rural to metropolitan. One thing I have learned is that people (including me) and communities are hungry to hear the liberating story of Jesus; hungry to receive the healing and reconciling medicine of the Gospel in the midst of busyness, fragmentation, division and dissension. Even the busiest of us can hear the Lord in quietness … if we seek to learn to be quiet.”Dietsche, in making the announcement, expressed his gratitude in welcoming  Daniel, with all the experience and passion he brings with him, to the cathedral and the New York diocesan community. Daniel, who will be moving to the close with his wife, Anne, looks forward to spending the next chapter of his life at the cathedral.Daniel said, “I look forward to working with Dean Kowalski during the transition over the next several months. I know I will value his guidance as we continue the important work of this extraordinary community.”As well as appreciating the many opportunities for service and celebration to be found here, Daniel and his wife are pleased to be closer to their three daughters and four grandchildren, who all live in New York.Dietsche and Macleod, with the Cathedral Board of Trustees, will establish a search committee in the next few months to identify a permanent new dean. The search is expected to conclude by the end of 2018.

These modern tenements are ludicrous and not a solution to the housing crisis,” Deputy O’Sullivan declared.“I don’t know of anyone who would be excited to live in such a development.”Higher density living,  Jan believes, is the future of housing in Ireland. But she also maintains that Minister Murphy has “no ambition” for quality public housing.“There will be those who will seek apartments over houses for more long term living, especially in cities. But as we move towards this model of housing we still have to protect living standards. Just because someone is living alone, or in a smaller home, does not mean that they should need to be prepared to accept a one bedroom unit without living space or cooking facilities.“We need to solve this crisis by building quality homes in well-serviced communities. Jan went onto say that Labour recognise public housing is an “essential part of the solution to our current crisis”.“That is why we are committed to building 80,000 over five years which could be done for €16 billion if the ambition was there..”In response, a spokesman for the Department of Housing, explained that the guidelines set out policy in relation to a range of apartment types that are needed to meet the accommodation needs of a variety of household types and sizes – including households with children, students, older people and an increasingly mobile workforce.“This form of ‘niche’ development is not envisaged as an alternative or replacement to the more conventional apartment developments which are provided for elsewhere in the guidelines,” he added.Meanwhile, a spokesman for Minister Murphy expressed his disappointment to the Limerick Post “that the Labour Party is joining Sinn Féin in an attempt to cause confusion around CoLiving”.“They are attempting to destroy a concept, successful in other cities, by convincing voters that a planning application, which has not been granted, is Government policy. It’s dishonest. These guidelines were introduced 14 months ago and the Labour Party had no issue with them at that time. CoLiving is actually bringing vibrancy back into Georgian homes in Limerick City and I would urge Jan O’Sullivan to visit the development championed by LDA chairman John Moran and then speak to fact rather than political populism.” Limerick city house prices rise 4.9% as time to sell falls TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!last_img read more

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoScalpers outside the Kohl Center Tuesday night were practically giving away tickets to Wisconsin’s matchup against Idaho State.Inside the building, the Badgers nearly gave away the game to the Bengals.Wisconsin shot just 37.7 percent from the field — and only 22.7 percent from beyond the arc — as it narrowly held off Idaho State for a 60-58 win.Even with time winding down, UW couldn’t close the deal. Idaho State’s Matt Stucki nailed a 3-pointer with just over two seconds to play to cut Wisconsin’s lead to 59-58. The Bengals quickly fouled Badger guard Trevon Hughes, who made the first free-throw attempt but missed the second.A lane violation on Wisconsin gave Idaho State one last attempt at a game-tying field goal or even a game-winning 3-pointer. Amorrow Morgan inbounded the ball the length of the court to teammate Devidias Busma, who was unable to get a shot off as time expired.“We rehearsed situations like that in practice and we talk about with two seconds left, three seconds left, we’re probably going to have to throw the long pass,” Idaho State head coach Jim O’Brien said. “We put it in [Devidias’] hands, although it was tipped a couple times. It wasn’t a very well-executed play.”The way UW head coach Bo Ryan saw it, however, was his team should have never been in that situation.“If we make our free throws, you’re not talking about a close game,” Ryan said. “We maintain that cushion. But we didn’t, so that ends up being the margin. But you want to put yourself in position to be able to handle people hitting shots at the end.”For the Bengals (2-6), it was their fourth close loss of the season. O’Brien’s squad fell to Hawaii in overtime and both Boise State and Long Beach State — a team that Wisconsin narrowly beat earlier this season — in double-overtime.“We have these moral victories, but they don’t go very far,” O’Brien said. “These close losses are getting old.”Jason Bohannon led all scorers with 18 points, but he certainly didn’t look pretty doing so. Bohannon shot just 4-of-11 from the field, with all but one shot attempt coming from 3-point range. All four of his threes came in the first half.“There’s a lot of things that kind of stand out, but there’s a lot of things to improve upon,” Bohannon said. “I’m not really looking at the positives right now. I’m looking at things I can get better upon. I think that’s where our whole team is right now. We’re not really satisfied where we’re at.”Against Idaho State’s zone, Wisconsin tried to capitalize on the open looks from long distance. But with the team taking 22 shots from beyond the arc, it was up to UW’s big men to clean the glass.They did just that, hauling down 15 offensive boards. Sophomore Jon Leuer collected five on offense, while senior Marcus Landry had three.“Against the zone, that’s what you’ve got to do,” said Wisconsin forward Joe Krabbenhoft, who finished with nine rebounds. “You’re going to get outside looks from Jason, who shot 40 percent from the three, but there’s going to be some misses so you’ve got to clean those up.”“That’s what happens when you zone for 40 minutes,” O’Brien said. “Eventually, people figure things out.”It was Bohannon, however, who was called upon to make Wisconsin’s late free throws with under a minute to play. He finished 6-of-6 on the night from the charity stripe.While Bohannon capitalized at the free-throw line, the rest of the team struggled, shooting 15-of-22 collectively.The Badgers were able to build a 10-point lead behind a pair of early 3-pointers by Bohannon but never regained a double-digit advantage the rest of the way. Both teams traded the lead just before halftime, but UW headed into the locker room with the narrow 29-27 edge.Ryan’s club let the Bengals hang around in the second half, with Stucki giving Idaho State a spark. The ISU guard drained a three to cut UW’s lead to 39-36 with 13 minutes to play and later scooped in a layup to bring his team to within five at 54-49.But in the end he and the rest of the Bengals couldn’t catch the Badgers, despite Wisconsin’s less-than-stellar overall performance.“We’ve got to get a lot better,” Landry said. “We’ve got to focus on the things we can get better at. I’m not satisfied with our performance today.”The UW defense held ISU guard Amorrow Morgan in check. The Bengals’ leading scorer — notching 17 points per game — finished with just eight on the night and only managed one 3-pointer in the first half.“They started picking up Amorrow a little earlier when he crossed midcourt (after halftime),” O’Brien said. “That rattled us a little bit in the second half.”Jon Leuer was the only player to score off the bench for Wisconsin, finishing with 11 points and seven boards in 23 minutes.Turnovers plagued the Badgers against Marquette over the weekend, when they gave the ball away 16 times. Tuesday, Idaho State forced Wisconsin to turn it over just seven times.“We learned a lot on how to take care of the ball,” Bohannon said. “That’s a big jump from what we had last game. We continue to get better based on the experience we have.”last_img read more
