James Koester SSJE.The outgoing superior, Br. Geoffrey Tristram SSJE said, “When I became superior six years ago the monastery was under renovation. At that time I quoted the founder of our society Richard Meux Benson, ‘If we let people see we are living upon a truth, and loving it, they will soon catch the life.’ We gave thanks to God, as we reopened the monastery doors and welcomed our friends back in and new friends joined us online. We have welcomed five men who have made SSJE their home as monks. As men of prayer, our desire is that you know you are loved by God, and that has been my daily prayer.”Koester said, “I look forward to building on my Brother Geoffrey’s work to connect with and welcome the next generation of faithful in our church and new brothers in our home. At a time when the our church looks for renewal, I will continue our society’s mission, as it says in our rule, to help men and women “to learn to pray their lives.”Koester was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. He received his MDiv from Trinity College, Toronto. He was ordained in Anglican Church of Canada in Diocese of British Columbia in 1985. He served in parish ministry for five years before coming to SSJE. Was professed as a brother in 1992. He served in a variety of roles including deputy superior and brother in charge of Emery House, during his time there Grafton House was opened for monastic interns, men and women.He is the author of “Living in Rhythm, Following Nature’s Rule” and is an avid gardener. He believes monastic communities have a vital role to play in the renewal of Jesus’ teaching of the Way.

A discussion is given of plasma flows in the dawn and nightside high-latitude ionospheric regions during substorms occurring on a contracted auroral oval, as observed using the EISCAT CP-4-A experiment. Supporting data from the PACE radar, Greenland magnetometer chain, SAMNET magnetometers and geostationary satellites are compared to the EISCAT observations. On 4 October 1989 a weak substorm with initial expansion phase onset signatures at 0030 UT, resulted in the convection reversal boundary observed by EISCAT (at sim0415 MLT) contracting rapidly poleward, causing a band of elevated ionospheric ion temperatures and a localised plasma density depletion. This polar cap contraction event is shown to be associated with various substorm signatures; Pi2 pulsations at mid-latitudes, magnetic bays in the midnight sector and particle injections at geosynchronous orbit. A similar event was observed on the following day around 0230 UT (sim0515 MLT) with the unusual and significant difference that two convection reversals were observed, both contracting poleward. We show that this feature is not an ionospheric signature of two active reconnection neutral lines as predicted by the near-Earth neutral model before the plasmoid is “pinched off”, and present two alternative explanations in terms of (1) viscous and lobe circulation cells and (2) polar cap contraction during northward IMF. The voltage associated with the anti-sunward flow between the reversals reaches a maximum of 13 kV during the substorm expansion phase. This suggests it to be associated with the polar cap contraction and caused by the reconnection of open flux in the geomagnetic tail which has mimicked “viscous-like” momentum transfer across the magnetopause.
By Dialogo July 17, 2012 On July 13, Ecuador sent a new Military contingent to the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), where it will carry out construction projects worth 15 million dollars to rebuild the country following the earthquake of January 12, 2010, the South American nation’s Armed Forces announced. These Soldiers “are ambassadors of peace and good will, who will have the eyes of the entire world upon them for the work they are going to carry out to benefit the people of Haiti,” the operations director of the Ecuadorean Armed Forces Joint Command, Wagner Bravo, said during a farewell ceremony. MINUSTAH was created by the UN to replace the multinational force of 3,600 Soldiers, composed chiefly of U.S. and French personnel, that arrived in Haiti in February 2004 seeking to reestablish security and facilitate the distribution of humanitarian aid following the departure of former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide. The contingent will continue with construction engineering tasks, together with Chilean Military personnel quartered at MINUSTAH’s Camp Charlie in Port-au-Prince, according to the announcement. The earthquake of January 12, 2010, left more than 200,000 dead. The president made the announcement during a visit to Quito by his Haitian counterpart, Michel Martelly, during which he recalled that in an initial phase of cooperation, Ecuador invested 13.5 million dollars to build 138 paved bridges, improve approximately 175 km of roads, clean irrigation canals, and build sewer systems. The 66 ‘blue helmets’ departed from the Air Force base in Quito and will replace an equal number of Soldiers who have finished their deployment. The Military personnel will also be responsible for construction projects to rebuild roads, bridges, schools, and residences in the agricultural region of Artibonite, for which the Ecuadorean Government has destined 15 million dollars, according to a recent announcement by President Rafael Correa. On June 11, Correa and Martelly agreed that the Ecuadorean Armed Forces will advise Haiti on setting up its new Army and that Haitian police officers will continue to receive training at Ecuadorean academies.

Until founding his own practice, J. Keith Hughey Company in 2008, he was a principal … Web: www.JMFA.com Details Over the past several years, I have watched the trends of workplace satisfaction with a great deal of interest. Throughout the Great Recession, various studies consistently indicated that roughly two-thirds – plus or minus a percentage point or two – of U.S. workers were dissatisfied with their job.According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), during the depths of the Recession – when employment opportunities were scarce – about 1.3 percent of the labor force was voluntarily electing to take the nearest exit from their place of employment each and every month.Outlook changing with improved job marketMore recently, however, the trend seems to be changing according to a report released by the Society for Human Resource Management. Results of this study found that 86 percent of U. S. employees reported overall satisfaction with their job.And while this sounds great at first glance, one of the primary reason workers are more satisfied in their job is the fact that the improving labor market is providing new opportunities to find situations that are a better fit for their workplace and personal needs. This trend is supported by the BLS information that shows the number of employees choosing to leave their job is up to 2 percent each month.The reasons for changing jobs can be varied and complex, but multiple employment satisfaction surveys point out that one of the main issues that causes employees to leave is they don’t feel valued or respected by their employer or supervisor. In a number of studies that have examined why employees are unhappy, the following issues appear time after time:The boss is a micro-manager.The boss is never around/never available.There is no sense of opportunity for career advancement, personal or professional growth.There is no sense of direction or vision.There is no feedback about one’s job performance.Management seems to care more about themselves than their people.There is no sense of team or teamwork.There is scant opportunity to use the best of one’s skills and abilities.There is no recognition of the employees’ contribution (or value).The culture conveys a message of a lack of caring and concern for the employees.And no matter how you spin who has responsibility for creating a work environment where employees are respected and their work valued, an organizational leader or immediate supervisor should ultimately be held accountable for setting the policies, procedures and practices that define an organization’s culture and values.The cost of overlooking employee valueSpace doesn’t permit me to examine the costs of turnover to an organization, but suffice it to say that the direct expenses tied to separation costs, vacancy costs, hiring costs and training costs are sizeable. Yet they can and often do pale in comparison to the indirect costs associated with the decline in service that occurs when an experienced employee is replaced with one who lacks the same level of expertise or abilities, and those all-important business and personal relationships.But just to put it into perspective, it is routinely estimated that the cost to replace a non-exempt employee averages between 33 percent and 50 percent of his or her total annual salary and benefits. What’s more, replacing an exempt employee costs anywhere from 100 percent to 200 percent of that employee’s total annual salary and benefits.Add it up and we’re talking real money. Unfortunately, most organizations pay insufficient attention to the impact of turnover because it isn’t captured in a line item on the income statement. Nor is there a practical means to reflect the value of human capital on the balance sheet.So what should an organization and its leaders do? The answer depends in part upon your turnover rate. If it is relatively low, then I would keep doing what you’re doing – for now anyway.However, if your turnover is high or increasing, then some significant changes in your leadership philosophy, your corporate culture, your policies and practices could be necessary. Or, quite possibly, you may need urgent changes in your strategies for identifying, selecting and developing future generations of leadership. Either way, taking care of your people is integral to taking care of your members, your organization and its future.Effective leadership is the key to satisfied employees In order to build an effective organization and leverage the skills and talents that existing employees possess, an effective leader must be committed to modeling the type of behavior that he or she desires for the staff to emulate on a daily basis. This includes willingness to:communicate the organization’s vision to all employees;provide the tools and training necessary to empower employees to do their jobs effectively;involve staff in making decisions that will ultimately impact them;delegate responsibility to encourage professional growth for all employees; andlisten to employee input in order to create a true sense of workplace teamwork.If implemented effectively, this behavior will help to establish a partnership with employees where everyone is working together with a shared commitment to reaching the organization’s strategic objectives and goals. And, perhaps more important, it will result in fewer employees looking for the exit door.

Log in Builders who follow the prescriptive requirements of the 2012 International Residential Code (IRC) in Climate Zone 6, 7, or 8 are required to install a minimum of “20+5 or 13+10” wall insulation. What does this mean? According to an explanatory footnote in the code, the “First value is cavity insulation, [and the] second is continuous insulation or insulated siding, so ‘13+5’ means R-13 cavity insulation plus R-5 continuous insulation or insulated siding.”Here in Vermont (a Climate Zone 6 state), builders have been framing walls with 2x6s for at least 35 or 40 years. Nobody installs R-13 insulation in walls in Vermont, so the most likely way that Vermont builders will comply with this code provision is to install R-20 insulation between the studs and R-5 rigid foam insulation on the exterior side of the wall sheathing.While this approach meets minimum code requirements, it violates a tenet of good wall design: namely, that any rigid foam installed on the exterior side of wall sheathing needs to be thick enough to keep the sheathing above the dew point during the winter. (For more information on this issue, see Calculating the Minimum Thickness of Rigid Foam Sheathing.)Cold wall sheathing is more likely to be damp than warm wall sheathing, so the “20+5” requirement is problematic. There’s more, however: the 2012 IRC still maintains antiquated vapor barrier requirements. In section R702.7, the code notes that “Class I or II vapor retarders are required on the interior side of frame walls in Climate Zones 5, 6, 7, 8 and Marine 4.” That requirement has always been unfortunate, but it has proven to be hard to change.Of course, if you’re building a wall with exterior rigid foam, the wall can no longer dry to the exterior; it needs to be able to dry to the interior. An interior Class I vapor barrier prevents inward drying, and a…

I hold spectacular skills in the field and has been diving into the field for 1 year. I am also curious about the technology updates and loves to pen down his thoughts about the same. In the tenure, I prepared a Social Media Marketing strategy following SEO tactics. The focus has shifted from profits to customer experience. Businesses realize that delivering better customer experience leads to loyalty, referrals and more sales. One tool that every business should have if it aims to deliver a superior experience to customers is omnichannel contact center software.

Sales, marketing and service support form one wing of the possible uses of omnichannel contact center solutions. Another use area is interoffice and intra-office collaborations where communication along different channels becomes easy and easily managed through a single project manager. Stakeholders may not necessarily be in the same office premises. Collaboration gains coherence and power when you have a seamless communication platform that allows you to send emails one moment and then take up the matter further through video conference and chat. Another perspective is the vendor and supply side. Businesses rely on vendors and contractors to provide goods and services. Business officials at various levels may need to interact with vendors as well as between themselves in which case the omnichannel feature can prove to be a boon for fast and smooth interaction.
