Please enter your email address here Photo by Sophie Mikat on Unsplash Opinion | Faith & InspirationBy Mike GillandI grew up on the outskirts of Evansville, Indiana. Our house was situated on a rural road, literally the last road within the city limits. We lived on one acre of land, immediately adjacent to my grandfather’s property. I loved him so, and had many amazing memories at his house and on that land. Granddad always had a large garden, and I grew up working in it.Later, after moving into the city, my dad and mom also gardened each year, even if the only items were tomatoes. So naturally, after getting married and buying our own little home, I had to give gardening a whirl. I borrowed my granddad’s tiller, marked off the garden plot, and away I went. Included in our garden would be items to make salads…tomatoes, lettuce, and radishes.Cindy and I had never been solely responsible for a garden before, and truth be told, we didn’t have a clue as to what we were doing. But it was fun! Soon after planting the rows of radishes, we were excited to see green growth pop up out of the ground. Talk about lush growth! I could only imagine how great our homegrown salads would taste, especially topped with the zingy flavor of those radishes.The days went by, and each afternoon I was out there, pulling weeds and admiring this beautiful garden. Before we knew it, we were harvesting, and it was then that we realized just how clueless we had been.Discovery number one… our radishes looked more like tiny carrots! I learned that what I should have done was thin out the crop, giving them room to grow. To me, the max amount of growth that I could see above the ground, the better.  But to have normal radishes (that are actually round!), the crop had to be cultivated.Discovery number two… we tried to eat those radishes…and I had never tasted such hot bitterness in all my life! They were impossible to eat. My other crops were okay, but my radishes were a complete bust.I realized later that this experience contained some very practical applications. Had I thinned out those rows of radishes, my crop would have had a better outcome. And likewise, just like our garden, our hearts have to be carefully cultivated, meaning at times, we need to give special attention to their condition. Some aspects in my life might need to be “culled” to enable me to live as I should.I also learned that bitterness is a natural outcome of a neglected garden. And the same is true in my heart as well, where a bitter root can grow and become firmly established… and can royally mess things up.The writer to the Hebrews made it very clear in chapter 12, verse 15:See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled…  (Heb. 12:15 ESV). That kind of bitterness will do more harm than just causing a momentary nasty taste in our mouths… it can do real damage, the kind of damage that deeply impacts our lives, and those of our loved ones.May God grace us and give us a resolve to work diligently to cultivate our hearts to prevent such bitterness. And may we walk with courage, taking steps to make those needed changes in our lives.Mike Gilland is Operations Manager for The Shepherd Radio Network, a group of radio stations in Florida that features the “Christian Teach/Talk” format.

Super Rugby 2012 Profiles – The Australian teams

first_imgTuesday Feb 21, 2012 Super Rugby 2012 Profiles – The Australian teams A few days back we took a look at a formidable New Zealand conference that has one or two sides that could well challenge for top honours in this year’s Super Rugby tournament. Today silver tongued Tony O’Sullivan talks us through the Australian teams, which produced the winner last year, and tells us where their strengths and weaknesses lie. The long time bottom feeders of the Super Rugby world are now the champions. Yup, the Reds took the biscuits in 2011 and pulled off what no one thought was possible. It was a helluva impressive effort. Aussie praising makes me feel like I need a shower. They did it on the back of some Wallaby superstars and some dude from Tokoroa. That dude is of course Quade Don’t mention the World Cup Cooper. Incredible talent but currently injured and unlikely to play until week 7. The Reds also have, in my opinion, the best wing in the world at the moment, Digby Ioane, and the guy with the best haircut, Radike Samo. Last year the balance of the team was perfect, but can they go back-to-back? They have shown they have the talent and the coach, but accomodating for Cooper’s absence early on will be crucial. Notable Losses: Will ChambersNotable Signings: No one really of note.Biggest Strength: Creativity and belief.Biggest Weakness: Losing shape and sticking to the basics if attack isn’t working like it should.One to watch: Digby Ioane.The Rebels. It’s never easy for a new club in it’s infant years and the Melbournians (I don’t know if any of them are actually from Melbourne) have some tough tasks ahead of them in 2012. Not only do they need to put in consistent good performances and avoid the wooden spoon to provide legitimacy of a 5th Aussie side, but they need to create ongoing interest from the public in an AFL stronghold that has trouble supporting one of the most successful NRL teams in history. Melbourne have picked up special talent Kurtley chicks dig my dirty Sanchez mo Beale and along with James  O’Connor, Mark Gerrard, and Stirling Mortlock their back line has some quality fire power. Can their forwards get quality ball to these guys? Probably not, and with the exception of amusingly named Hugh Pyle, the forward pack just doesn’t look like they have the right stuff to match it Super Rugby this year.Notable Losses: JP du Plessis, Luke Rooney, Greg SomervilleNotable Signings: Kurtley Beale, James O’ConnorBiggest Strength: Classy BacksBiggest Weakness: No name forwards.One to watch: Beale if he has the dirty sanchez mo, James O’Connor if he shaves it.The Force are looking.. well… not good this season if truth be told. The Aussie battlers have suffered crucial losses in the form of Bieber lookalike James O’Connor and their player of the year in 2011, David Smith. After last years 12th place finish losing those attacking threats is a big blow. They do posses one of the best no 7s in the game in David Poccock, who in tandem with Bryce Lawrence  was partially responsible for knocking the meat eaters out of the World Cup. The rest of their squad is made up of blokes who are bit past it or are yet to really make their mark on the Super Rugby world. The Force really need to have a big one this year as they are no longer Super Rugby infants. It’s imperative that they deliver better results for their loyal fans.Notable Losses: James O’Connor, Matt Dunning, David Smith.Notable Signings: Winston Stanley, Salesian Ma’afuBiggest Strength: David Pocock pilfering ball at the breakdown.Biggest Weakness: Inability to put on good performances consistently.One to watch: Winston Stanley.The Waratahs generally provide a strong challenge for any team that comes up against them, but seem to struggle at crucial times of the year. One look at their squad shows us that it’s solid all over the park. They picked up good talent in the form of a man who looks spookily like the devil, Adam Ashley Cooper, and the young meat eater, Sarel Pretorius, who has Springbok written all over him.In the forwards they have picked up Rocky I’m too old for this shit Elsom who had a far from impressive 2011, but has Waratahs management promising big things from one of the criminal’s finest players in the modern error. The rest of their forwards are big, strong, and dynamic. It would of stung the ‘Tahs to see the Reds win the championship before they had, and knowing the nature of that inter-state rivalry, they’ll be gunning for the top spot this year.Notable Losses: Al Baxter, Kurtley Beale, Luke Burgess, Ryan Cross, Phil Waugh.Notable Signings: Adam Ashley Cooper, Rocky Elsom, Sarel Pretorius, Dan Vickerman.Biggest Strength: Have quality in the team to beat all comers on their day.Biggest Weakness: It’s not always their day, especially at the end of the season.One to watch: Sarel Pretorius.The Brumbies, historically Australia’s most successful team in Super Rugby, had an absolute Barry crocker of a year in 2011, finishing 13th. I have more bad news for Brumbies fans, it could be worse this year. A number of frontline players have left and not much has come in to replace them. Their most crucial signing happens to be a World Cup winning Coach, Jake White. The challenge for him is enormous. It is akin to explaining to your Mrs that you’re a regular at the pub because you’re researching for a book on the dangers of alcoholism. It’s sad to see a once successful organisation get to such a low point. I hope they can discover some hidden gems of talent that will make this year bearable for their fans, but as far as I can see, unless White is a miracle worker they will get drilled by the big teams, and not have class to match it with many others.Notable Losses: Matt Giteau, Rocky Elsom, Adam Ashley Cooper, Mark Chisolm.Notable Signings: Jake White (coach).Biggest Strength: Underdog tag.Biggest Weakness: Not having squad up to Super Rugby Standards.One to watch: ? I guess you could watch Stephen Moore.The Australian conference kicks of on Feb 24th (Friday), when the Brumbies host the ForceYou can follow Tony O’Sullivan on Twitter hereADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

What Does the Future Hold for Existing-Home Sales?

first_img Even with headwinds facing the housing industry such as constrained inventory and home price appreciation outpacing wage growth, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) believes that 2016 will be the best year for existing-home sales since the pre-crisis year of 2006.NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, in presenting his midyear economic and housing forecast at the 2016 Realtors Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo on Thursday, said that even though existing-home sales were uneven in the first quarter, they are still ahead of last year’s overall annual pace (5.29 million compared to 5.26 million).Yun also noted other factors that will help make 2016 the best year for existing-home sales in a decade, such as persistently strong demand, especially in the areas that have produced the most jobs, and mortgage rates near a three-year low. Also, since 2010, 14 million jobs have been created.All this points to a forecast of an annual pace of 5.40 million for existing-home sales in 2016, which would be the best year since 2006 (6.48 million). Yun expects home price appreciation to moderate to between 4 and 5 percent after rising to 6.8 percent last year.“The housing market continues to expand at a moderate pace in spite of the fact that home prices are rising too fast in some areas because of insufficient supply fueled by the grossly inadequate number of new single-family homes being constructed,” Yun said. “The good news is that pending sales in recent months have remained stable and should support a modest gain in home sales heading into the summer.”Yun also noted that the absence of first-time buyers in the market was preventing a “full housing recovery,” despite conditions being ripe for homebuying such as strong job growth, soaring rents, and historically low mortgage rates. Factors keeping first-time buyers out include student loan debt, a lack of available starter homes, and prices appreciating amid flat wage growth.“Spectacularly low mortgage rates mean today’s prospective homebuyers are the luckiest in a generation but the unluckiest in actually becoming homeowners because of the roadblocks hampering their ability to buy,” Yun said.Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) joined Yun onstage to talk about student loan debt and the obstacle it presents for younger would-be homebuyers. Warren cited data published by the NAR last year indicating that the first-time buyer share was at 32 percent, its lowest point in nearly three decades.“Student debt is crushing young people, it’s hurting the nation’s economy and delaying the opportunity for many to buy their first home,” Warren said. “Every monthly payment going to reducing their student debt could instead be money going toward saving for a down payment on a house.”NAR will release its next existing-home sales on May 20 and the next pending home sales report on May 26.

ServiceLink Announces Rebranding

first_img Is Rise in Forbearance Volume Cause for Concern? 2 days ago Tagged with: ServiceLink Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe ServiceLink, a provider of transaction services for the mortgage and finance industries, recently announced its new branding that is more in line with its parent company, Fidelity National Financial (FNF). This comes after FNF’s announcement last month of its distribution of equity interest in Black Knight. This restructuring caused ServiceLink to not be a Black Knight company, but still a member of the FNF family.The change isn’t expected to change day-to-day operations other than the logo design, color palette, and removal of references to Black Knight.“This new logo ties us more closely with the overall FNF brand while maintaining the recognizable visual elements of our prior logo. Also, our predominantly blue color palette further aligns us with our parent company while still providing us our own company identity,” said Chris Azur, CEO of ServiceLink. “This look allows us to continue to communicate our leading position in the industry – particularly in the areas of technology, innovation, and service.”LoanCare, a subsidiary of ServiceLink, is also part of the logo design, but will continue to remain “LoanCare, a ServiceLink company.”“ServiceLink and LoanCare customers and clients will see no change in their relationship with our organization,” Azur said. “They will continue to receive the same level of customer service that they have come to know and expect.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago October 8, 2017 2,033 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago ServiceLink Announces Rebranding The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Featured / ServiceLink Announces Rebranding  Print This Postcenter_img ServiceLink 2017-10-08 Brianna Gilpin Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Brianna Gilpin, Online Editor for MReport and DS News, is a graduate of Texas A&M University where she received her B.A. in Telecommunication Media Studies.

First Baptist Church in Troy welcomes new pastor

first_img “Verse 43 said ‘And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.’ I didn’t know what that meant for me,” he said. Later, as he talked with his minister, it was suggested that perhaps God was calling him to the ministry. “But I said, ‘I don’t think so.’”A few years later it was confirmed to Lane that God’s call for him was to be a church pastor.“It has been a fantastic journey that has led me to First Baptist Church of Troy,” Lane said. “This is a great area to preach God’s word. I will be diligent in preaching Christ. I believe that evangelism is important to sharing the gospel and I know that God will equip our church to prepare others for global ministry.”Lane said he is looking forward to developing a relationship with the church members through which he can teach them and they can teach him.“I believe my ministry is a team ministry and that God speaks to and through all believers,” he said. “My calling is to provide a word from God and I will look to prayer and His guidance as the preacher, teacher and pastor at First Baptist Church of Troy.” Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Sunday will be the Rev. Luke Lane’s first day in the pulpit of First Baptist Church of Troy. Standing before a congregation of unfamiliar and expectant faces could be cause for a case of the nerves, but Lane said “absolutely not.”“No, I won’t be nervous,” Lane said. “I know that I am where the Lord wants me to be. I put my trust in God so there’s no reason to be nervous. Being here in Troy is a God thing. My wife, Jennifer, and I talked about it and prayed about it and we know that it is God’s design for us to be here.”The Lanes moved to Troy from Mississippi a week ago with their three children, Ashleigh, 2, and twins Riley and Kyleigh, who will be a year old on Sept. 20.

Reproductive performance, recruitment and survival of wandering albatrosses Diomedea exulans at Bird Island, South Georgia

first_imgThe wandering albatross breeding population at Bird Island, South Georgia has declined since 1961 at a rate of 1.0% per annum. Similar declines have occurred elsewhere in the Subantarctic. (2) Using detailed data on recaptures of birds ringed as chicks in 1958, 1962, 1963 and 1972 onwards, we examine the relative importance of changes in breeding success, breeding frequency and survival and recruitment rates to the decline since 1976. (3) Breeding success (average 64%) has increased by 1.2% per annum, with increases in hatching and fledging success about equally responsible. Breeding frequency has remained constant, except that higher breeding success means more birds breeding biennially. Of successful breeders, 72%, 8% and 6% breed 2, 3 and more years later, respectively; of unsuccessful birds, 68%, 14% and 6% breed 1, 2 and more years later. (4) Recruitment to the breeding population has decreased from 36% (of a cohort) in the 1960s to 30% nowadays; average age of first breeding has also decreased. (5) Adult survival averages 94%; females have a 2% significantly lower rate than males; survival in the 1960s was probably 1-2% higher. (6) A demographic model is developed which closely matches the observed changes and gives rates of population decrease between 0.9 and 1.1% per annum. (7) The causes of the population decrease must operate mainly outside the breeding season (because of high breeding success); the few recoveries of birds of known status support this. Earlier suggestions that incidental mortality due to fishing activity in lower latitudes is important are strongly reinforced by new data (direct observations, ringing recoveries) on birds killed during long-line fishing for tuna. Annual mortality rates may exceed 2-3% of Bird Island adults and 15% of juvenileslast_img read more
