Speaking to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella in Feb, “There is a huge potential for gaming to grow in India”, Mukesh Ambani said. “Gaming will be bigger than music, movies and television shows put together,” he added during the interview. While the gaming sector is only in its nascent stage, at best, Mukesh Ambani said that there is a huge opportunity for growth thanks to increasing penetration of the internet in the country.Earlier, in 2019, Reliance Jio had announced its Jio Fiber set-top box to support “console-like” gaming, saying that it will enable newer entertainment and gaming experience. Akash Ambani and Isha Ambani, Directors of Reliance Jio, also gave a demonstration of the major gaming capabilities of the Jio Set-Top Box. “This will be at par with the leading gaming platforms globally,” Akash Ambani said, who also played FIFA 19 on stage to highlight that the set-top box supports multiplayer gaming.With such a view and vision about the gaming industry growth in the Indian market, don’t be surprised if PUBG and Reliance Jio makes the big announcement soon. PayTM Games and Nazara Technologies are rumored to be the other potential parties who are interested in exploring relationship to operate PUBG.

Dr. Mary Crist (Blackfeet).Lord, I am yours. Let my words glorify your name.Preacher Mary Crist of the Diocese of Los Angeles and celebrant Bishop David Bailey of Navajoland prepare to enter the worship space for the July 9 Eucharist at General Convention. The Eucharist honored indigenous ministries on the feast day of Samson Occum, the first Native American to be ordained a Christian (Presbyterian) minister.Oki niksokowaks, nitannnikoo Piitaki. Nistoo Ampskapi Pikanii. Apistootooki spomohkinahn, kitnastatstimaht nohkotohkinahn. Aiyo ninaa natoosi, skomohkit kinaitapiwa.Greetings, my relatives. I am known as Eagle Woman. I am Southern Robe Indian (Blackfeet). Creator help us all. Hear our cry (prayer). Listen father sun. Watch over all the people.Samson Occom’s people were the Mohegans. In 1859, he was the first indigenous person to be ordained a minister, a Presbyterian. A few years later Enmegahbowh of the Ojibwa people was ordained the first indigenous Episcopal priest.Occom was also first American Indian to have his writing published. He demonstrated courage, connection, and commitment, qualities that continue to characterize many indigenous people in this church today. He brought the light of Christ to many people.The qualities of courage, connection, and commitment are the backbone for small church ministry.A Native American youth dancer interprets the Lord’s Prayer during the July 9 Eucharist at General Convention. Photo/Pat McCaughanLuke’s gospel today bids us to make this work known. Let it come to light. Celebrate it. Listen to it. In obedience to the gospel of Luke, and in the Native tradition, I share a story of what can happen when we listen.Shortly after my ordination to priesthood about six months ago, my bishop told me that he was appointing me to serve in a church. I was so excited! This was such good news.The bad news was that my church had no congregation, no budget, and no salary for the priest.You see, the congregation at this church had come to the point where as a traditional church it could no longer meet its expenses. This happened even though the former clergy and a few of the faithful had worked very hard and very faithfully. The church in its old form had died.The faithful few grew a community garden, and it gave life to ministry to the homeless and the hungry. They sponsored a pow wow with the help of the priest and helped students in a local Native American boarding school. They welcomed new groups to the land.They listened to the Spirit, and they experienced new resurrection.Today the church building itself remains beautiful. Located on four-and-one-half acres, it has an expensive pipe organ given by the organ-builder, himself. Silk clergy vestments, beautiful choir robes, and acolyte vestments hang neatly in the sacristy. Silver and gold chalices wait in protective coverings. The brass is polished. The sanctuary light glows. The large altar is covered in spotless linen and brocade. A life-size carved wooded crucifix adorns the wall behind the altar. Sunlight cascades through glass panes set in French doors. Flowering bushes and trees abound. One can almost hear lusty strains of songs sung to a booming organ on a Sunday morning.Yet, the Spirit called the people to ministry in the community garden.When the former priest, a Native American, moved away to take care of a sick relative, the bishop appointed me. He asked that we feed the poor, house the homeless, teach the children, and support those struggling with substance abuse and other issues.When I asked him for more details, he said the Holy Spirit will help you figure it out.In the first six months of small ministry, my own life has been transformed as it was for Samson Occom. I have learned to listen to that still small voice of the Spirit within, as Luke directs us…to listen deeply.If you were to ask our community who is the leader, people would say, “we are just following the Holy Spirit.” We pray and we plan as a group. I work from within the circle of our ministry partners.The church has three staff members. The church secretary, a former Franciscan nun, takes on the toughest people and the most vulnerable with equal grace. She is paid for 20 hours a week and works over 40 hours.The second staff member, a plumber and welder, was losing his health when he heard a call to take time off “to figure out what that God-thing was all about”. He lived on the street for several months, he fell in love with God. Although he can fix anything on our property, he says his ministry is to the poor and those trying to escape substance abuse. He says he speaks their language because he was on the street with them. He is unpaid.The gardener/grounds-keeper/security officer also lived on the street a few short months ago. He began to work in the garden. Today he is healthy and a valued member of the community. His only compensation is a small room where he sleeps at night.One day I witnessed a woman leaning up against the wall outside the office. She looked lonely, and I asked her if she would like to help us hang some pictures. She now runs the office after the secretary leaves. She is a new person. Her compensation is a monthly bus pass. Recently, she began a new ministry to cook meals using fresh food from the garden. She wanted to feed some of our homeless friends. “They can’t cook on the street,” she said, and she responded.Two Talking Circles for First Women of the Land established many years ago are growing. The women come from many Native American Nations, learning from one another. They reach out to students in a nearby Native American boarding school.Two Spanish-speaking evangelical congregations now worship in our church building. Both are actively involved in developing our community.Through our Second Harvest, we now distribute food five days a week. We want to improve our kitchen to expand the cooking ministry. We collaborate with the Women’s Sober Living House across the street.A publicly-funded charter elementary school will open on our property in September. It will develop math, science, and leadership skills for inner-city children. The African- American school principal is also a member of our Partners Planning Council.In our last report to the bishop, we documented services to more than 500 persons every week.When I go to the new ministry center, I am filled with joy. It comes from witnessing lives transformed. by people loving their neighbors as themselves. From the many ministries, mission is being born. We are meeting the Five Marks of Mission.People ask us questions about what is happening at the center, giving us a natural opportunity to speak about our relationship with a loving God. Following the Great Commandment to love another naturally gives rise to following the Great Commission, to share the good news of Christ. We are preaching the gospel in the four directions through our words and actions.Someone driving by the new ministry center today would probably wonder who planned the signage? The answer is the Holy Spirit. It looks a little bit like signage for a bazaar. One sign invites people to attend Freedom Church. Another tells people about REACH Academy, the new school. Yet another announces in Spanish a family festival that is coming soon. And yes, the Episcopal Church Welcomes You sign is there, too!It all looks a bit messy. The signs are not color-coordinated. They aren’t the same size or even the same style. All of them are blowing in the wind. And yet, people tell me they are fascinated to see what is coming next. I tell them we are listening to hear what the Holy Spirit has planned for us. We know it will be filled with life, and it will be filled with the love of Christ. We are becoming a new spiritual family – brothers and sisters in the faith…we are the early church resurrected.What I have learned from this experience is awesome. From what people tell me, the Episcopal Church is dying, but from what I see, the church is being reborn.We are being called by the Spirit into something new.I am standing in the middle of the whirlwind.I can feel the wind on my face. It blows my hair around.I can hear the Eagle’s call.It is exhilarating.It is unpredictable.It is messy… yet it is God… and it is good.Amen. Comments are closed.

Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here From the Orange County NewsroomAt a recent COVID-19 Town Hall meeting hosted by AdventHealth, Mayor Demings told the story of the U.S. Public Health Service Syphilis Study at Tuskegee and praised the descendants whose male relatives were mistreated as part of that study. In an effort to dispel vaccination myths and encourage people to get inoculated, the Mayor noted how descendants of these men, who he had recently met with, have been vaccinated against COVID-19.“In spite of what happened, what they told me was they’ve gotten the vaccine, every one of them,” said Mayor Demings. “They’re advocates for all Americans getting vaccinated.”The Tuskegee experiments Mayor Demings referred to started in 1932 as an effort to study untreated syphilis in males. Men were recruited for the federally-sponsored study at Tuskegee Institute, a historically Black university in Alabama. The men did not give consent to be part of the study and were told only that they had “bad blood.”Originally expected to span six months, the study went on for 40 years but was kept secret from the men it examined. The truth finally came out in an Associated Press report in 1972. Years later, the infamous study still keeps some in the Black community from trusting public health campaigns, such as the COVID-19 vaccine, which is why the descendants’ advocating for getting inoculated is so important.Both of Leo Ware’s grandfathers were tricked into enrolling in the experiment, but Ware, 83, has been COVID-vaccinated. Though he admitted he thought about the study both before and after his shot, he said he did his own research to feel confident in the federal government’s current public health campaign.“I know I did the right thing,” said Ware, who owned a gas station in Orlando for decades. “I tell others they should, too.”Mayor Demings and U.S. Representative Val Demings met with the Voices for Our Fathers Legacy Foundation.Mayor Demings, along with U.S. Representative Val Demings, recently met with Ware, along with other descendants and the Voices for Our Fathers Legacy Foundation, which is dedicated to honoring the 623 Black men victimized and unethically treated in the study.“They told us that despite the victimization that occurred during Tuskegee, the current COVID-19 public health campaign, and the need to get vaccinated, is both legitimate and critical to ending the current pandemic,” said Demings. “Their confidence speaks volumes on our perception of vaccine hesitancy.”To learn more about COVID-19 vaccination myths, how to get vaccinated and how to become a vaccine advocate, visit Orange County’s I Got My Shot webpage.Learn more about the Voices for Our Fathers Legacy Foundation by visiting voicesforfathers.org. Additionally, the Mayor endorsed his support for the group’s initiatives, which include creating a memorial garden and providing scholarships for descendants.

The construction of small apartments that are relatively inexpensive yet still high quality is currently one of the most essential challenges in housing construction.Save this picture!© Jasmin SchullerThe Ragnitzstraße 36 project is meeting these conflicting priorities in the following manner:A structurally simple, systematic and efficiently designed base building structure houses all apartments. To the south, this structure is flanked by zigzag-shaped, spacious balconies, while the north side features a pergola opening encased in expanded metal. Thus, the building’s overall architectural character is defined by relatively inexpensive building components, such as the balconies.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe building houses 15 small apartments (40-50m²) and one penthouse on the top floor, with a subterranean parking level below.Save this picture!© Jasmin SchullerAll apartments are oriented to the south and feature spacious outside areas (balconies or terraces) that face the green space of Ragnitzbach. The balconies and outside areas that cover the entire apartment widths are partially roofed and feature a minimum size of 17m². Thus, the actual living area extends towards the outside area, and living rooms and bedrooms appear larger and more spacious.Save this picture!© Jasmin SchullerThe larch-wood balcony railings are placed in a fan-like manner along the zigzag rhythm of the cantilever slab, with both materials and workmanship creating a homely atmosphere.Save this picture!© Jasmin SchullerThe north-facing pergola blocks the traffic noise of the Ragnitzstraße. The expanded metal façade is mounted such that it appears almost transparent from the west.Save this picture!© Jasmin SchullerHowever, when approaching the building from the east, the façade appears closed and volumetric, which creates a kind of visual tilting effect as one passes the building. Overall, the appearance of the structure varies dramatically depending on the viewer’s perspective, which gives the building a very sculptural and three-dimensional feel.Project gallerySee allShow lessEmerging Practices in India: Abin Design StudioInterviewsLonberg-Holm: The Forgotten Architect, RememberedMiscProject locationAddress:Ragnitzstraße 36, 8047 Graz, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

With the ad, the WWF is appealing for donations to help fund its work worldwide, including bringing down the illegal wildlife trade. Tagged with: christmas TV WWF Christmas appeal shows poaching from elephant’s perspective During the advert, viewers see an elephant in the wild with the words ‘Like us, elephants feel complex emotions,’ appearing on screen. Next, reflected in the elephant’s eye, poachers are seen chasing across the savannah before firing at one of the herd. After displaying the fact that around 55 elephants are killed a day for their tusks, the advert follows a poacher walking away from the killing scene carrying a huge tusk. The viewer then sees money being counted and tusks piled high in a shipping container ready to be illegally sold for thousands of pounds worldwide and turned into objects like trinkets.The words “we need your help” appear on screen before trained rangers are shown stepping in and apprehending a poacher, potentially helping to protect more elephants from further killings.Tanya Steele, Chief Executive of WWF said:“Generous donations from the public make up the majority of our funds and we urgently need support to continue our work to help protect elephants and tackle the illegal wildlife trade wherever it takes place in the world. It’s our hope this Christmas that this striking film will move people enough to join us.”Image credit: © TIME BASED ARTS / WWF-UK 215 total views, 1 views today
Huntington, W.Va. — Over a dozen people rallied on Dec. 4 in support of a gay man, Robert Campbell, who had his house vandalized with red paint dumped on his porch and anti-gay slurs written on his door. His gay pride flag was taken down as well. Demonstrators used the opportunity to denounce homophobic bigotry, and while at least four slurs were hurled their way from passersby, the overall reception from the public was positive. Groups involved in the demonstration were the Appalachian Left; Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays; Fight Imperialism, Stand Together; the Huntington Unitarian Church; and Workers World Party.Photo: Samantha GahmFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Nightlife Fritz Coleman Speaks to a Generation at the Ice House Setting out to prove that aging isn’t pretty…but it’s funny! From STAFF REPORTS Published on Thursday, May 22, 2014 | 5:33 pm Top of the News NBC weatherman and stand-up comedian Fritz Coleman will perform his show “Fritz Coleman Speaks to a Generation” at the Ice House Comedy Club on Sunday, June 22 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available at www.icehousecomedy.com or through the Ice House box office at (626) 577-1894. This is a Special Event show.Fritz Coleman is the NBC4 weathercaster on the weekday editions of “Channel 4 News,” airing at 5, 6 and 11 p.m. A Southern California broadcasting icon, Coleman is well known for his sense of humor and extensive knowledge of weather. He joined NBC4 in February 1982, as the weekend weathercaster, and moved up to weekdays in June 1984.A long-time stand-up comic, Coleman has graced some of comedy’s most famous stages.

He received four Los Angeles area Emmy Awards for his work on the NBC4 comedy specials and series.Coleman has written, produced and starred in three one-man plays. His first production It’s Me! Dad! won the coveted 1997 Artistic Directors Award.

They were particularly interested in looking at hormones associated with stress, accelerated ageing, heart disease, and depression.In the study, unemployed and employed people gave completed a stress survey and provided saliva samples to assess their hormone levels. The results found that unemployed people are not just more stressed, stigmatised, depressed and report poorer physical health compared to those who are employed; they also displayed a less healthy hormonal profile compared to those who were employed.The UL researchers’ findings showed that these irregular hormonal patterns are not only similar to those experiencing chronic stress, but similar patterns have been seen in those with depression and heart disease. The research group also found that self-esteem and social support might be factors that can change someone’s experience of unemployment.According to their analysis, those people who have more social support tend to fare better during unemployment, while those with higher stress and lower self-esteem fare worse biologically.“Our initial findings not only confirmed that unemployment constitutes a psychological risk for health; it now demonstrates that the stress associated with unemployment constitutes a biological risk, a risk that could underlie a range of negative health outcomes from depression, poor immunity, and accelerated ageing,” Dr Gallagher told the Limerick Post.This indicates that the stress from unemployment may put these individuals at risk of disease or exacerbate any underlying health conditionsDr Sumner suggests, “It also underscores the importance of providing support and interventions to those who are unemployed to counteract the negative experiences associated with unemployment”.Funding from the Irish Research Council supported this work and the results of the study have now been published in a prestigious peer-reviewed scientific journal.by Alan [email protected] Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Facebook NewsLocal NewsLimerick research shows that unemployment gets inside the bodyBy Alan Jacques – April 22, 2016 1141
