Nationwide, more than 120 buildings, monuments, and landmarks will be part of the worldwide wave of blue and pink light.The idea is to create conversations about baby loss, providing an opportunity to bereaved parents and families to talk about their precious babies. Organisers hope that individuals will also join the Wave of Light by lighting a candle for one hour on October 15th from 7pm.Marie Hunt, Clinical Midwife Specialist, Bereavement & Loss, UMHL, said: “We are joining the Féileacáin Wave Of Light to show our support for those families bereaved through miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death, and to acknowledge their babies who have lived such short lives.”This Thursday evening, the facade of the UMHL building as well as the front of the reception area will be illuminated in blue and pink from 7pm until 11pm.The ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency this year prevents people from gathering in person for the Wave of Light. The UMHL bereavement team at UMHL will light a special Féileacáin candle in the reception area of the hospital in memory of all babies who have died in our community.“We will be thinking of the parents and families who grieve, and we encourage people to light their own candle at 7pm for one hour. If you take photos and wish to post them to social media, please use the hashtags #feileacainwaveoflight2020,” Marie said.The commemorations of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day will be followed next month by UMHL’s annual Ceremony of Remembrance, which this year will be a virtual service streamed live from the Church of the Holy Rosary on Sunday November 22nd, at 3pm.Although the COVID-19 public health emergency prevents the ceremony from proceeding in the traditional way, Bereavement Support and Midwifery staff at UMHL are reaching out to parents who have experienced the death of a baby or pregnancy loss at any stage, to involve them in the ceremony and ensure their precious babies are commemorated. The service will be led by Fr Des McAuliffe.Rita O’Brien, Clinical Midwife Specialist, Bereavement and Loss, UMHL, said: “Although COVID-19 and public health restrictions mean that we cannot hold our Ceremony in the usual way, this remains an important date in our calendar, and we are grateful as ever to Fr Des and the Church of the Holy Rosary for enabling us to stream the event online.”“The loss of a pregnancy at any stage can have devastating effects, and we want to reach out and join families together to remember and celebrate each little life,” Rita said.Rita invited anyone in the Mid-West who has experienced the death of a baby or the loss of a pregnancy to email her with the child’s name before Monday November 16th at 5pm, so that the name will be included in the ceremony.

New York City reopens restaurants, salons, more in Phase 2

first_imgImageKit/iStock(NEW YORK) — After spending almost all of spring in a COVID-19 pause, the Big Apple kicked off the first week of summer with the next step in its return to normal.New York officially began phase 2 of its reopening, allowing restaurants to conduct outdoor dining, and salons and barbershops, offices and other businesses to commence their operations with reduced capacity and strict social distancing guidelines. Mayor Bill de Blasio said an estimated 300,000 employees could return to work.“Phase 2 is really a giant step for this city. This is where most of our economy is,” the mayor said during a news conference Monday morning.Among the major retailers that allowed customers to return to their shelves on Monday was Macy’s. The department store said all of its New York locations, including its flagship Herald Square store, reopened for in-store and pick-up shopping.The store’s representatives said they are taking strict measures, such as deep cleaning and social-distancing markers on the floor, to keep everyone safe.“Following Centers for Disease Control [CDC], as well as state and local guidance, Macy’s stores in the NY Metro area are open to the public from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.,” Macy’s said in a statement.Playgrounds were also reopened to families, but dog-runs were still closed, according to the mayor. In playgrounds in Brooklyn, parents and their children were back in swings, climbing jungle gyms and enjoying a cool-down near the water sprinklers.New York City has been the epicenter of the pandemic, with 209,313 confirmed coronavirus cases and 17,596 related deaths so far, according to the city’s health department.The mayor said mitigation efforts have proven successful, as the number of new daily cases has dropped to an average of under 300 a day over the last two weeks. During its peak, the city saw an average of over 4,000 new cases daily, according to data from the Health Department.The number of New Yorkers testing positive for the virus is around 1% with thousands of tests being administered daily, de Blasio said.The mayor said that since phase 1, subway ridership has jumped as more people have gone back to work. Between June 4 and June 18, ridership was up by 28%, according to de Blasio.“Some will do it immediately, some will take their time,” he said of returning to work. “But what we know is, every passing day everyone is saying, ‘Hey this is working.’”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

The Bouvet triple junction, 20 to 10 Ma, and extensive transtensional deformation adjacent to the Bouvet and Conrad transforms

first_imgThe Bouvet triple junction has been proposed to have evolved as a ridge-fault-fault (RFF) type between 20 and 10 Ma, connecting the southernmost Mid-Atlantic Ridge (SMAR) with the Bouvet and Conrad transforms, to the east and west, respectively. We surveyed immediately north of these two transforms with side-scan and multibeam sonars, on seafloor that would have originally been created at the SMAR close to its junction with the two transforms. The sonar data reveal that SMAR fabrics on the Bouvet and Conrad sides, when corrected for plate rotation, are parallel to each other, so they were most likely formed at the same spreading ridge and confirm that the triple junction was indeed RFF. Our second major result is that the SMAR fabrics are extensively crosscut by normal faults, over most of the 400 km surveyed along both transforms and most intensely north of the Bouvet transform. Growth faults and faults affecting the sediment surface in multichannel seismic images show that the deformation has been long-lived and is probably ongoing. Since the orientations of the crosscutting faults are similar to those of shear zone tension fractures, we interpret these areas to be transtensional zones. This extent of deformation adjacent to major oceanic transforms is rare, and we develop a number of ideas to explain its origin.last_img read more

Justice Brent Dickson Honored “At We The People” Dinner

first_img200_dickson-hr-1Justice Brent Dickson Honored At We The People Dinnerby Marilyn OdendahOn an evening to honor civics education, Indiana Supreme Court Justice Brent Dickson was surprised Sunday with a thank you for his support in teaching the next generation about democracy.The Indiana Bar Foundation used its 2015 Civics Dinner to present the President’s Award to Dickson for his many years of service to the Supreme Court, the judiciary, the legal profession and the state.Bruce Jones, associate at Cruser & Mitchell LLP in Indianapolis, told the guests that as one of Dickson’s former law clerks he learned not only how to think more deeply about the law but also how to be a better person. He described Dickson as a man of faith who loves his family and who mentored and challenged his law clerks.Jones said he still carries those lessons with him and often asks himself what would “Judge,” the law clerks’ nickname for Dickson, do? Dickson has announced he will retire from the court in spring 2016.Dickson, accompanied by his wife Jan, said he was deeply honored by the award. He then praised the work the bar foundation has done in serving the bar, the judiciary and the citizens of the Indiana. He said the organization’s work in civics education has made a lasting impression on the lives of children, adults and families.“It inspires all of us in what we can do,” Dickson said. “Thank you not just for this honor but for what you do for civics education every day.”The Indiana Bar Foundation hosted the annual dinner at Indianapolis’ Union Station as part of the state We the People finals. About 100 people including judges, attorneys and teachers attended the evening event.Bar Foundation President Geoffrey Slaughter said Dickson has been an ardent supporter of the organization and has advocated not just the civics education programs but also the legal aid assistance provided to the indigent.On a personal note, Slaughter, partner at Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, said while he has argued before Dickson, he got to know him more personally when he applied for a vacancy on the state’s Supreme Court in 2012. Slaughter said Dickson was personable and kind as he shepherded the applicants through the selection process.“You don’t replace somebody of his caliber, you simply succeed him,” Slaughter said. “Those of us who’ve had a chance to work with him, got to know him and appeared before him as lawyers, it has been a real privilege.”Also Sunday, the bar foundation recognized retired attorney Susan Roberts with the William G. Baker Award. Brown County Schools Superintendent David Shaffer was presented the John J. Patrick Award.Roberts was honored for her work in the Indiana High School Mock Trial program. Called the “driving force behind Indiana’s mock trial program,” Roberts is credited with making the state’s mock trial competition one of the most successful in the country. She was praised for her volunteer work with the competition and, in particular, for writing an original case and case materials each year for the students.Roberts was unable to attend the dinner but her friend, Janice Houghton, a faculty sponsor for the mock trial program at Heritage Christian School, read her remarks.Praising the enthusiasm and energy the students brought to advocating in the cases she wrote, Roberts said she appreciated the hard work and talent of all those involved with the program.“This award recognition would not have happened without the dedication of the countless teachers, attorneys, judges and most of all the students who shared a part of their lives to make mock trial come to life,” she said. “The students, their teachers and coaches, never cease to amaze me and I share this award with all of them.”Shaffer was honored for his contributions to citizenship education that includes the support of We the People program at Brown County Junior High School. Along with being a five-time state champion, the team has become a national powerhouse, winning the 2013 and 2014 national middle school invitation and being the 2015 national runner-up.In accepting the award, Shaffer applauded the We the People program as critical for teaching students about democracy and for spotlighting the good work the public school system can do.Shaffer was an American history and government teacher before he became a school administrator but he has not lost his passion for teaching. As the Brown County team was preparing Saturday for the state competition, he joined the practice session to help the students. The We the People program teaches young people about civic responsibility and ways they can positively contribute to their communities, he said.“I think that’s of great value and it’s very important to our country right now,” Shaffer said. “We have too many people who are not knowledgeable about our system.”Dickson echoed that sentiment, saying the We the People program makes the students better citizens.“We have such a need for civics education in our country because of the demands of math and other educational needs it’s easy to let history become an unwanted stepchild,” Dickson said. “These kinds of programs are so important because they help develop future generations that know about the separation of powers, know about the history of how our Constitution was put together.”The sponsors of the dinner and civics education programs were the Indiana State Bar Association; Barnes & Thornburg, LLP; Faegre Baker Daniels, LLP; Taft Stettinius & Hollister, LLP; the Kenneth J. Allen Law Group; and Church Church Hittle & Antrim.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
