Las solicitudes de financiación exceden el presupuesto trienal de $120…

first_img Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Submit a Press Release Miembros del Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas presentarán su proyecto presupuestario al pleno de la Convención General el 1 de julio. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City] Miembros del Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas (PB&F) de la Iglesia Episcopal oyeron el 26 de junio un enérgico llamado a reducir el monto de dinero que solicitan de las diócesis y zonas de misión regionales, a sabiendas de que se enfrentan aproximadamente a una discrepancia de $12 millones entre la financiación ya incluida en el Anteproyecto del presupuesto trienal 2016-2018 del Consejo Ejecutivo y las resoluciones de financiación adicionales que se han presentado en la Convención.El presupuesto balanceado del Consejo por un total de $120 millones fue aprobado en enero después que los comités, comisiones, agencias y juntas de la Iglesia llenaron sus informes a la convención que contenían resoluciones de financiación. Algunas de esas solicitudes han sido enmendadas aquí en la Convención. Además, muchos resoluciones nuevas que se han presentado desde que el Consejo aprobó su presupuesto también solicitan dinero a incluirse en el presupuesto 2016-2018. Estas son las responsables de los $12 millones de diferencia.“Quiero hacer que la gente entienda que incluso una solicitud de financiación aprobada por ambas cámaras no constituye un mandato vinculante para el PB&F”, dijo la Rda. Canóniga Mally Lloyd, de Massachusetts, presidente de del PB&F, a Episcopal News Service después de una reunión del comité en las primeras horas de la mañana del 27 de junio. “Tiene un gran peso con el PB&F, probablemente el mayor peso de cualquiera aporte que recibamos, pero aun así es tarea del PB&F discernir cómo se financian las cosas”.Las solicitudes nuevas o enmendadas “excederán con mucho cualquier manera razonable de manejar eso, de manera que nuestro reto va a consistir en ver lo que podemos hacer con esto, y la mayoría de ellas no podrán ser financiadas”, dijo a ENS el Rvdmo. Jim Mathes, obispo de la Diócesis de San Diego y miembro del PB&F, después de la audiencia sobre ingresos del 26 de junio.Si bien tal discrepancia no es inusual, la logística de intentar reducir el déficit es diferente en esta convención que en las dos anteriores.“No es inusual para los redactores del presupuesto encontrarse en este punto en el proceso presupuestario”, dijo Lloyd a ENS, “pero estamos instando a la gente a ser realista respecto a lo que es posible”.“Hace tres años, estábamos juntando presupuestos alternativos e intentando crear una estructura presupuestaria y ese proceso nos llegó a dar algún margen de flexibilidad”, dijo a ENS el 27 de junio Stephen Lane, obispo de la Diócesis de Maine y vicepresidente del PB&F. “Esta vez tenemos un presupuesto balanceado con una notable integridad interna, de manera que por cada dólar que entra otro tiene que salir. Ese es un proceso diferente de la última vez.Cuando se le preguntó si este proceso era más difícil o más fácil, Lane dijo “es de una dificultad diferente”.El PB&F colaboró con el Consejo Ejecutivo en el anteproyecto de un presupuesto 2016-2028 desde el comienzo del trienio 2013-2015.El presupuesto trienal de la Iglesia Episcopal se nutre fundamentalmente de las promesas de las diócesis de la Iglesia y de las zonas de misión regionales. A esas entidades actualmente se les pide, pero no se les exige, que contribuyan anualmente con el 19 por ciento de sus ingresos de dos años antes, menos $120.000.El anteproyecto presupuestario del Consejo aumenta esa exención a $175.000. Su proyección de ingresos se basa en solicitar a las diócesis y zonas de misión regionales de la Iglesia que contribuyan con el 18 por ciento de sus ingresos para financiar el presupuesto de 2016; 16,5 por ciento para el presupuesto de 2017 y 15 por ciento en 2018.El plan de tres años para reducir la solicitud diocesana a un 15 por ciento da lugar a ingresos por $74.931.206, según Kurt Barnes, Tesorero de la Iglesia Episcopal. Este total asume una exención diocesana de $175.000 y supone que cada diócesis que no esté pagando la totalidad de su solicitud aumentará el porcentaje de su contribución en un 10 por ciento por encima de la tasa de su contribución en 2014. La plena participación con una tasación obligatoria de un 15 por ciento para los tres años del trienio 2016-2018, con la misma exención diocesana y los aumentos supuestos en las contribuciones, resultaría en un ingreso de $80.236.645, explicó él.De las 109 diócesis y tres zonas regionales, 49 diócesis pagaron la solicitud completa o más en 2024. Una lista de compromisos diocesanos y pagos realizados en 2013 se encuentra aquí. Barnes ha dicho que si todas las diócesis participaran plenamente en la solicitud adoptada por la Convención General en 2014, se dispondrían de casi $7,4 millones más para el ministerio denominacional. El pago de la plena solicitud diocesana no se exige canónicamente y no hay penas para los que no paguen el porcentaje completo.“No oí a nadie abogar por mantener la solicitud del 19 por ciento”, dijo Lloyd reflexionando sobre la audiencia de ingresos durante una reunión del comité en las primeras horas de la mañana del 27 de junio. “De manera que yo creo que podemos sacar de esa audiencia respaldo para algún tipo de reducción en la solicitud”.Ella más tarde le dijo a ENS que “habrá todavía que tomar alguna decisión respecto a cuán lejos y cuán pronto”.Lane le dijo al comité el 27 de junio que “mi propio percepción es que la reducción (propuesta por el Consejo) es realmente el marco para el aumento y que a través de la Iglesia existe un consenso para hacer eso”.“La otra pieza que es fundamental para la vida de esta Iglesia es la plena participación y eso no está ocurriendo”, afirmó él. Lo prescrito, los tres años, es el tiempo para que las diócesis grandes y pequeñas se conviertan en participantes plenos”.Scott Barker, obispo de Nebraska, advirtió que tres años puede ser tiempo suficiente para que las diócesis aumenten sus contribuciones hasta el nivel del 15 por ciento, pero “es un método demasiado largo” para diócesis como la suya de aliviarse de contribuir con la totalidad del 19 por ciento de la solicitud.La convención encara propuestas para reducir las tasaciones a menos del 15 por ciento y hacer la tasación obligatoria. Las resoluciones presentadas hasta la fecha sobre esos asuntos se encuentran aquí. La cuestión de cambiar la solicitud de una respuesta voluntaria a un pago obligatorio no está dentro del alcance del PB&F.El ingreso total en el anteproyecto presupuestario del Consejo es de $120.470.577 y los gastos proyectados ascienden a $130.468.248. Además de los pagos diocesanos, el lado de los réditos incluye ingresos de otras fuentes, tales como $28,2 millones del pago de activos irrestrictos de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera, casi $10 millones en ingresos por concepto de alquileres de espacios en el Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal, $2,1 millones de un programa de cobro de préstamos a refugiados del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, $2 millones a ser recaudados por la oficina de desarrollo y $1.200.000 en ingresos provenientes de la Convención General, junto con otras fuentes pequeñas.El PB&F celebrará su audiencia de gastos a las 7:30 P.M., hora local, del 27 de junio en el Gran Salón A,B,C. del Hilton Hilton Salt Lake City Center.El PB&F usará los comentarios que reciba, así como el anteproyecto presupuestario del Consejo y cualquier legislación aprobada por la Convención General o sometida a su consideración para crear una propuesta presupuestaria final. Ese presupuesto deberá presentarse en una sesión conjunta de la Cámara de Obispos y de la Cámara de Diputados a más tardar el tercer día antes de la fecha en que concluya la Convención. Según el calendario provisional de la Convención, esa presentación tendrá lugar a las 2:15 P.M., hora local, del 1 de julio.– La Rda.

5 ways parents can help children with the ‘new’ math

Thompson, Associate Professor of Cognitive Psychology, Kent State University ; Lauren K. Schiller, , Teachers College, Columbia University, and Marta Mielicki, Postdoctoral research associate, Kent State UniversityIn his March 2021 Netflix special, comedian Nate Bargatze complains about having to teach his kids a confusing “new math” based on standards known as the Common Core.“The goal of Common Core is to use one sheet of paper for every problem,” Bargatze jokes. He observes that this new math requires people to “keep breaking the problem down.”“You put the problem at the top, and it just keeps going,” Bargatze says. “And then what’s funnier is you see old math in the middle of it. As you break it down, old math gets in there and you’re like, ‘Oh, just do that at the top.’ I don’t even know what we’re doing.”Comedian Nate Bargatze tells a joke about Common Core math during his comedy special.Math worriesBargatze is by no means alone in his frustration. Since many schools went largely remote during the COVID-19 pandemic, countless parents, me included, are becoming burnt out as we find ourselves thrust into the role of substitute math teacher.Why does this so-called new math – which has actually been around for over a decade – draw so much scorn from parents?This new math is based on a list of standards that students should master within each grade. It’s different from “old math” in that the standards focus not only on the step-by-step procedures to solve math problems, but also on why those procedures work in the first place. The idea is to teach the procedures in such a way that children can apply this knowledge to future math problems that they encounter – both at school and in real-life contexts.For instance, in solving the multiplication problem, 312 x 23, parents historically might line the problem up and start multiplying from right to left. We were told that we had to include the 0 on the right under 936, but I don’t recall ever being told why. But under the Common Core standards, students are encouraged to break the problem down into hundreds, tens and ones. This newfangled way to do the math makes it more transparent where the answer, 7,176, and that mystery 0 come from.Overcoming math anxietyAs Bergatze’s stand-up bit points out, this new math has triggered some parents’ “math anxiety” – a common apprehension that can impair math performance, many studies show.Researchers haven’t completely figured out how to eliminate math anxiety. But as a researcher who studies why people hate math, I believe there are steps parents can take to combat any negative attitudes they may have toward math and to improve children’s math understanding. Five of those steps are listed below.1. Point out math in everyday lifeMath learning doesn’t happen just in classrooms. Parents can draw children’s attention to math all around them. They can talk about math in the grocery store or at the bus stop. One idea is to incorporate positive math talk while reading books with our children, even if the books don’t inherently include numbers. For example, even though the classic children’s book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” doesn’t include counting or comparing how much the caterpillar eats each day, parents can insert guiding scenarios like “The very hungry caterpillar ate 4 strawberries. Let’s count them. 1-2-3-4. Did the caterpillar eat more plums or strawberries?” This is a “two-for-one deal” that could help time-strapped parents promote literacy and numeracy.Playing Chutes and Ladders can help children learn to identify, compare and estimate numbers. Katherine Frey/The Washington Post via Getty Images2. Play board games and card gamesChildren can learn about math as they play fun board games, such as Chutes and Ladders, and card games, like war. Research has shown that playing board games pays off. One study found that while low-income families played board games less at home than middle-income families, even one hour of board-game play across a period of two weeks increased low-income children’s math performance to the level of their middle-income peers.3. Break math down step by stepTo help kids avoid the COVID slide, a major dip in math performance occurring during the pandemic, parents can break down math problems step by step. As they learn the procedure at each step children can then better understand how to get to the correct answer, or where they made a mistake along the way.4. Draw connections to more familiar and well-liked mathParents can also help children understand more difficult math concepts, such as fractions, by drawing connections to more familiar, well-liked and less anxiety-provoking math, such as whole numbers or percentages. For instance, parents can show that ¾ – that is, three-fourths – is the same as 75 out of 100, or 75%. Parents can draw a connection to money, too. There are four quarters in a dollar. Each quarter is worth 25 cents. That means that three out of four quarters is worth 75 cents.5. Avoid negative math attitudesThis recommendation goes hand in hand with our first recommendation. Parents should seek out opportunities to talk about math at every chance they get, but they should avoid negative math talk. Many an American will freely admit to being “not a math person”. These off-the-cuff remarks can have serious consequences for children, who soak up information in their environments.Math-anxious teachers and parents can transmit their anxiety to children, especially girls. Girls and women have higher math anxiety, which could be one reason they have lower math performance and less confidence when estimating numbers and are less likely than men to pursue STEM careers.I hope parents embrace their new role as math tutors, because it seems as if home schooling will continue throughout the spring for many students. It shouldn’t go unmentioned that kids aren’t all that enamored with their home-school teachers either. Some may even hope they won’t have the same teacher next year.This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

Situated between the blue sea of ​​Jeju at the south and Halla Mountain at the north, the site had all the scenery of Jeju island. The surrounding environment was so wonderful that I thought it would be enough just to be a part of the scenery. Naturally, the relationship with the sea was the important factor in the design process, I tried not only to build a house in the beautiful nature, but also to bring the beauty of Jeju into the house. In order to fully enjoy the Moon Island and Bam Island floating on the blue sea, the main room such as the master bedroom and the living room were placed at the south toward the sea and the corner window was maximized so that it could enjoy the panoramic view of the sea. However, windows are composed so that the landscape would be selectively framed accordance with the location of the resident.Save this picture!© Yongsoon KimSave this picture!Circulation DiagramSave this picture!© Yongsoon KimAt the front facade, the lower part of the diagonal line makes the upper part of the house look floating, which gives dynamic mobility and leaves a strong impression to visitors. The white skin, which was cut off from the lump, reacts abundantly according to the light, and makes contrast to the basalt stone surface which was native to Jeju. The room and the living room on the first floor were set back so that the building seemed to float, adding rhythm and depth to the facade and providing a sense of tension, but functionally protecting the privacy from the outside. It would also serve as a eaves to create a cool shade in hot summer and draw warm light deep into the house in the cold winter. Overall, the house is simple, but the look of the house changes according to the different viewpoints.Save this picture!© Yongsoon KimSave this picture!Section 01Save this picture!© Yongsoon KimBlack basalt represents Jeju’s history and locality. The basalt used in the building and the basalt used in the walls are different in size and stacking style. Compared to bigger exterior stone walls, the small basalt stones attached to the outer walls of the building were labor intensive and time consuming to construct. The landscape of the building where rough, fine-cut stone climbing up the hill makes the scenery of Jeju. The black basalt stone walls on the outside create another layer, creating the effect of separating between the landscape of Jeju and the buildings. From the conceptual point of view, ‘the exterior of Jeju was revealed as the white surface cut off’, the exterior of the modern building was replaced with a basalt stone wall, and this house would be seen as it had been there for long.Save this picture!© Yongsoon KimProject gallerySee allShow lessWaterfront Art Gallery / Lacime ArchitectsSelected ProjectsHsinchu Bus Terminal / KRIS YAO | ARTECHSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/907864/maison-de-grand-bleu-janghwan-cheon-plus-studio-i Clipboard Projects “COPY” South Korealast_img read more

From Here in Pasadena, Caltech Scientists Detect the Most Distant Galaxy Ever Found

By ROD PYLE Published on Thursday, September 3, 2015 | 7:40 pm Make a comment Galaxy EGS8p7, as seen from the Hubble Space Telescope (wide and top right) and Spitzer Space Telescope (inset, bottom right), taken in infrared. Credit: I. Labbé (Leiden University), NASA/ESA/JPL-CaltechA team of Caltech researchers that has spent years searching for the earliest objects in the universe now reports the detection of what may be the most distant galaxy ever found.In an article published August 28, 2015 in Astrophysical Journal Letters, Adi Zitrin, a NASA Hubble Postdoctoral Scholar in Astronomy, and Richard Ellis—who recently retired after 15 years on the Caltech faculty and is now a professor of astrophysics at University College, London—describe evidence for a galaxy called EGS8p7 that is more than 13.2 billion years old. The universe itself is about 13.8 billion years old.Earlier this year, EGS8p7 had been identified as a candidate for further investigation based on data gathered by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope. Using the multi-object spectrometer for infrared exploration (MOSFIRE) at the W.M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii, the researchers performed a spectrographic analysis of the galaxy to determine its redshift. Redshift results from the Doppler effect, the same phenomenon that causes the siren on a fire truck to drop in pitch as the truck passes. With celestial objects, however, it is light that is being “stretched” rather than sound; instead of an audible drop in tone, there is a shift from the actual color to redder wavelengths.Redshift is traditionally used to measure distance to galaxies, but is difficult to determine when looking at the universe’s most distant—and thus earliest—objects. Immediately after the Big Bang, the universe was a soup of charged particles—electrons and protons—and light (photons). Because these photons were scattered by free electrons, the early universe could not transmit light. By 380,000 years after the Big Bang, the universe had cooled enough for free electrons and protons to combine into neutral hydrogen atoms that filled the universe, allowing light to travel through the cosmos. Then, when the universe was just a half-billion to a billion years old, the first galaxies turned on and reionized the neutral gas. The universe remains ionized today.Prior to reionization, however, clouds of neutral hydrogen atoms would have absorbed certain radiation emitted by young, newly forming galaxies—including the so-called Lyman-alpha line, the spectral signature of hot hydrogen gas that has been heated by ultraviolet emission from new stars, and a commonly used indicator of star formation.Because of this absorption, it should not, in theory, have been possible to observe a Lyman-alpha line from EGS8p7.“If you look at the galaxies in the early universe, there is a lot of neutral hydrogen that is not transparent to this emission,” says Zitrin. “We expect that most of the radiation from this galaxy would be absorbed by the hydrogen in the intervening space. Yet still we see Lyman-alpha from this galaxy.”They detected it using the MOSFIRE spectrometer, which captures the chemical signatures of everything from stars to the distant galaxies at near-infrared wavelengths (0.97-2.45 microns, or millionths of a meter).“The surprising aspect about the present discovery is that we have detected this Lyman-alpha line in an apparently faint galaxy at a redshift of 8.68, corresponding to a time when the universe should be full of absorbing hydrogen clouds,” Ellis says. Prior to their discovery, the farthest detected galaxy had a redshift of 7.73.One possible reason the object may be visible despite the hydrogen-absorbing clouds, the researchers say, is that hydrogen reionization did not occur in a uniform manner. “Evidence from several observations indicate that the reionization process probably is patchy,” Zitrin says. “Some objects are so bright that they form a bubble of ionized hydrogen. But the process is not coherent in all directions.”“The galaxy we have observed, EGS8p7, which is unusually luminous, may be powered by a population of unusually hot stars, and it may have special properties that enabled it to create a large bubble of ionized hydrogen much earlier than is possible for more typical galaxies at these times,” says Sirio Belli, a Caltech graduate student who worked on the project.“We are currently calculating more thoroughly the exact chances of finding this galaxy and seeing this emission from it, and to understand whether we need to revise the timeline of the reionization, which is one of the major key questions to answer in our understanding of the evolution of the universe,” Zitrin says.The paper was co-authored by Ivo Labbe, Rychard Bouwens, Guido Roberts-Borsani, Daniel P. Stark, Pascal A. Oesch, and Renske Smit. The research was sponsored by NASA through a Hubble Fellowship, the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh, and the National Science Foundation. MOSFIRE was made possible by funding provided by the National Science Foundation and astronomy benefactors Gordon and Betty Moore. Cooperating institutions include Yale University, the University of Arizona, University College London, Leiden University (Netherlands), and the University of Durham (UK).
