Photo: Egan Millard/ENS[Episcopal News Service ­­– Washington, D.C.] The litany that could be heard at All Souls Episcopal Church on the evening of July 13 was an unfamiliar one.“Homeless?” came the call.“Not hopeless,” the people responded.“God?”“Keep me focused.”This wasn’t a liturgical service, and the woman on the stage in the church basement wasn’t a priest. Her name was LaTonya Merritt, and she was a performer at the church’s first Prophetic Poetry Slam.“Dirty clothes, smelling bad / sleeping on the streets, digging in the trash can for food / that’s all you see,” she recited from memory. “How ’bout: I have a job, sleep in my vehicle. / That homeless person / is me.”With commanding confidence, she interspersed the story of her journey out of homelessness with that same call-and-response she’d taught the audience at the beginning of the poem, echoing the theme of relying on God in desperate times.This event, unlike most poetry slams, wasn’t a competition; no judges assigned scores to the 10 performers. It did, however, feature the passionate, socially conscious spoken-word poetry that slams are known for, with a special focus on spirituality.All Souls has been hosting monthly poetry nights since 2018. Photo: Egan Millard/ENSAll Souls is focusing on the intersection of faith, art and social justice as a way to reach out to the surrounding community. Tucked into the lush Woodley Park neighborhood – which borders both the establishment influence of Kalorama and the diverse immigrant enclave of Adams Morgan – the church is something of an intersection itself.“This is a part of the outreach that we are doing to the broader community,” said Brian Smith, the church’s Christian formation leader. “We’ve really made a concerted effort to reach out to our neighborhood in general and bring people into church for different reasons.”Last year, Smith started a monthly poetry night “to explore the art of poetry as a devotional spiritual practice.”“All Souls has a tradition of religion and the arts,” Smith said. “There have been other poetry groups that met here in the past, so we’re kind of carrying that on.”Smith said that the intimate monthly gathering succeeded in bringing in people “who would never have gone to church” otherwise.“We took a summer hiatus to regroup and plan out the next program year,” Smith said, “but then we realized, we have to do something this summer. It was the rector’s idea to do a poetry slam. … We wanted to infuse a little bit more energy into the experience of poetry for people who may or may not be familiar with the slam style.”So where does the “prophetic” element come in?“It’s a very prophetic moment we’re experiencing right now,” Smith explained. “People are speaking out; they’re very passionate.”And though the topics – particularly the racist rhetoric embraced by President Donald Trump and his administration’s hostility to immigrants – may be new, the Christian response isn’t.“Return to the law, return to love. … That’s what the prophetic tradition is about, in a way: new expressions of old truths,” Smith said.So the poetry slam, with its tradition of speaking truth to power, seemed like the perfect way to harness the passion of a community that increasingly feels the need to speak out against injustice. That hasn’t always been easy for All Souls, said the Rev. Jadon Hartsuff, who has served as rector since 2016.“We are here in Washington, D.C., we are surrounded by political issues, and we are a parish that is full of people who work in government … so this has long been a church that has very intentionally stayed clear of hot-button political or social justice issues just because people have wanted church to be a respite,” Hartsuff said.Ironically, that attitude came about in part because All Souls was an early pioneer in one particular hot-button issue: accepting queer parishioners.A custom-made sign greets visitors at the door of All Souls. Photo: Egan Millard/ENS“All Souls was the first church to have an openly gay rector in this region. So the primary issue that the church felt like it was engaging was the issue of welcome to the LGBT community,” Hartsuff said. “So with that being its flagship issue, it wanted to avoid all the other issues that might divide people who were otherwise being united around that issue, because it ended up being a place where gay men and women from very different political backgrounds came together.”But by 2016, the situation had changed, with LGBTQ people gaining widespread acceptance in The Episcopal Church and Trump upending the political and moral landscape of America.“In the last few years, there’s been an increasingly large minority of people here who have been interested in some kind of more active, more pronounced engagement of social justice,” Hartsuff said. This led to a monthly multi-parish social justice forum, and the July 13 Prophetic Poetry Slam was intended to forge a connection between that and the monthly poetry series.“We’re trying to test the waters and see what happens,” Smith said before the event.What happened was a mix of personal and political, painful and healing. With rhymes ringing off the walls, the first poet poured out her anguish over her sister’s death, wondering what God’s purpose could be.Laurel Blaydes sang a cappella of the struggle to persevere in the face of disillusionment:“I can see by the look in your eye / that you feel like your leaders mislead you / and you’re tired of delusions and lies / But I can also see / that you didn’t stop there / You have moved to take the vision of the future / way beyond despair,” she sang.Laurel Blaydes gets ready to sing at All Souls Episcopal Church’s Prophetic Poetry Slam. Photo: Egan Millard/ENSMerritt, in addition to sharing her story of homelessness, performed a piece that pointed out the ironic dichotomies in American society: poverty and conspicuous consumption, homelessness and gentrification, “Black Lives Matter” and “All Lives Matter.”Other performers spoke of feeling judged in church and the guilt of judging others, struggles with learning disabilities and incarceration, and the gap between what Jesus left unsaid and what he did say. Inspired by the trending Twitter hashtag #thingsJesusneversaid, one poet wondered how anyone familiar with the Gospels could be confused about how Jesus would react to fossil fuel emissions polluting the air and jeopardizing the survival of humanity. Jesus, he said, never talked about oil, “never spoke of dinosaurs, giant lizards / sinking into the rocks, becoming a liquor for our society. … He didn’t have to.”vEnessa Acham reads Joy Harjo’s “Ah, Ah.” Photo: Egan Millard/ENSNot everyone performed their own work. vEnessa Acham read “Ah, Ah” by newly inaugurated U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo, the first Native American to hold the post. And Calvin Zon read a series of revolutionary poems by Robert Burns, Pablo Neruda and Bertolt Brecht, ending with Langston Hughes’ “Let America Be America Again.”The performers were evenly split between regular parishioners and people from outside the parish. That’s because All Souls invested in highly targeted Facebook ads to advertise the slam.“We have an active two-week-long Facebook ad for this event that is focused on young adults who have expressed on their Facebook profile that they have an interest in either poetry or social justice,” Hartsuff said.Those ads are funded by a grant from the Lilly Endowment administered through nearby Wesley Theological Seminary’s Innovation Hub. The program aims to connect activist millennials in Washington with local churches through engaging, collaborative projects. The Innovation Hub provides training, research and support, in addition to the grant funds.For Hartsuff, the effort is as much about getting a new image of the church out there as it is about the event itself.Myke Gregoree performs an original piece. Photo: Egan Millard/ENS“We have been trying to create and present different kinds of events that … 20-somethings who don’t go to church might see and be surprised that a church was offering,” Hartsuff said. “And even if they didn’t come to it, it would begin to shift their understanding of what our church and maybe the church at large is doing,” Hartsuff said.The investment in Facebook ads paid off. Myke Gregoree, who hadn’t been to All Souls before, said he came across the event on Facebook and “it seemed like it was up my alley. … It definitely was the name that spoke out to me and it made me feel welcome.”Merritt, also a first-time visitor to All Souls, had the same experience while scrolling through Facebook.“I was like, ‘OK, that looks like something interesting,’” she said.Both Merritt and Gregoree expressed interest in coming back when the regular monthly poetry nights return. And most people lingered long after the slam ended, talking over wine and snacks about the power of catharsis. There were knowing nods, exchanges of email addresses, and a sense that All Souls was a little bigger than it had been just a few hours earlier.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Want to solve the world’s problems? Try working together across disciplines

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Labor Day/ Back to College 2018By Jonathan M. Adler, Associate Professor of Psychology, Olin College of Engineering, Caitrin Lynch, Professor of Anthropology, Olin College of Engineering, and Robert Martello, Professor of the History of Science and Technology, Olin College of Engineering and first published on Day is our New Year’s Eve. Rather than vowing to lose weight or spend less time on our phones, as college professors we head into the new school year with a different kind of resolution: to inspire and prepare our students to become agents of positive change.The world’s problems certainly didn’t take a break this summer, and we know that successfully addressing them depends on a mindset much broader than any one discipline can offer. Our strategy is to cultivate a way of thinking that blends insights from multiple perspectives.As a psychologist, an anthropologist and an historian who teach at an engineering college, happily, we see examples of this kind of integration all around us.GloballyGlobal climate change may be the biggest challenge facing humanity, and it is a problem that illustrates the world-changing implications of interdisciplinary problem-solving. In an analysis of the economic impact of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, experts at the consulting firm McKinsey & Company identified a spectrum of strategies and their associated costs. Options like converting to nuclear energy, shifting to electric vehicles, and retrofitting coal and gas plants all have great potential, but we can produce the most benefits for the lowest cost by adopting strategies such as switching homes to energy efficient lighting and better insulating our residences and workplaces. Compared to changing the national energy supply chain, these changes aren’t highly technical. They are matters of changing human beliefs and behavior.An article published in Science last year diagnosed the real problem of climate change in this way: “Experiencing the self as separate from nature is the foundation of humanity’s damaged relationship to planetary resources.” The only real solution to the climate problems facing our planet is to change mindsets, an approach that requires a complex understanding of all the ways that individuals and institutions interact with the natural world. In other words, students should not only study the social sciences or the natural sciences but also learn how the insights gained from both can be combined to be even more powerful.LocallyThe importance of making connections across perspectives also plays out at the local level.One traffic intersection in the center of Drachten, Netherlands, accommodates 20,000 drivers as well as many bicyclists and pedestrians each day. As a result, it became notorious for its high rate of accidents and deaths. A conventional solution might have been to load up the roads with signage and signals that clearly instruct everyone where to go and when. But when Dutch traffic engineer Hans Monderman approached the problem, he saw the congested conduit as a place of profound disconnection. Rather than peppering the roads with signs, in 2003 he took all signage away. This approach to “shared space” design meant that drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians had to increase their awareness of each other to successfully navigate the intersection. This reliance on human connection rather than engineered traffic patterns upended conventional thinking, and dramatically decreased the number of accidents and deaths. The most innovative solutions to local problems like this demand deep integration of quantitative and emotional insights that are too often segregated between traditional academic disciplines.IndividuallyFinally, we see many challenges at the individual, personal level that call out for integrated thinking.Terri, a Boston-area woman in her 60s who uses a wheelchair, told a team in one of our engineering design classes here at Olin College of Engineering that she finds grocery shopping a cumbersome and physically painful experience. A traditional engineer’s answer might point her to online services that could provide convenient in-home grocery delivery without unpleasant exertion.But when our students joined Terri at the supermarket, tried to navigate the store from her wheelchair, and spent time with her in her home, they discovered something unexpected. For Terri, grocery shopping wasn’t only focused on getting food but offered a special opportunity to laugh with the butcher, exercise autonomy, and experience community membership. An online service could deliver her ground turkey, but it would also make her feel lonely. The students’ solution was a custom easily adaptable rack for the chair – painted bright purple, Terri’s favorite color – that eased the physical challenges of shopping while enhancing her ability to engage with her community in a meaningful way. Devising this solution required a nimble synthesis of engineering design and attention to human values.Teaching new approachesAs these examples illustrate, we need to teach students to approach complex problems differently. Our future is at stake.This past May, a joint task force from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine released a report entitled “Branches From the Same Tree: The Integration of the Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Higher Education.” This study identified the great potential in interdisciplinary education. The list of possible benefits includes improved student motivation and enjoyment of learning, development of teamwork and communication skills, ethical decision-making and critical thinking.Done correctly, engineering begins and ends with people. Done optimally, tackling our world’s biggest challenges requires a diverse and integrative approach.We see encouraging examples of this type of innovative integration in diverse corners of academia. For example, at George Mason University, the Rain Project, part of the EcoScience + Art Initiative brought together faculty from sciences, arts, humanities and design departments to develop a floating wetland. The project not only improved water quality and stormwater management but also demonstrated the local community’s dependence on their wetlands for survival. Or the STAGE Lab at the University of Chicago, where new pieces of theater and film are created within the context of the Institute for Molecular Engineering. Here, the creation of new plays and films alongside the creation of new scientific findings inspires new ways of asking questions, in both art and science.Ethics, sustainability, questions of identity, equity or social justice, and many other topics, must be included in the scientist’s or engineer’s design process. And their repertoire must include rigorous communication, teaming, self-directed learning, self-reflection and other skills. Similarly, artists, writers, managers and other non-technical professionals lose out when their work ends where scientific thinking begins.Our Labor Day resolution this year won’t help us with weight or time management. Instead, it will help us to humbly remember the limits of any one way of thinking about major challenges and the promise of true integration. You have entered an incorrect email address!

Tom Croft discusses recall to England squad after injury layoff

first_imgFriday Jan 18, 2013 Tom Croft discusses recall to England squad after injury layoff Returning England flanker Tom Croft admits his recall to the national squad after an eight-month injury layoff came as a shock – but his Six Nations participation remains in doubt. The Leicester Tigers ace suffered a broken neck following a mistimed tackle on former England team-mate Nick Easter during an Aviva Premiership clash against Harlequins last April.After his recovery took longer than expected, the 27-year-old returned to action for the Tigers in a Premiership clash with Worcester Warriors at the start of January and he has now been named in Stuart Lancaster’s elite player squad for next month’s Six Nations campaign.However, Croft insists he is only concentrating on getting more match action under his belt with his club, and revealed that if he features in England’s Six Nations campaign at all, it will only be during the very late stages.“After eight months out with my neck injury, and only playing 50 minutes of rugby, it is quite a shock to be involved,” said Croft on his England recall.“Obviously the back row is a highly contested area in English rugby so to be kept in the squad is massive, but I won’t be rushing back. I need to get the injury right first to make sure I am fit enough and at the right level to play for my country.“I won’t be available for the first few games and I’m probably looking more at the back end, if at all. The most important thing is getting back playing for Leicester and getting back to how I was playing prior to injury.“England is blessed with a lot of depth in the back row so those boys will be playing and if I regain any sort of form it is then up to the coaches to decide when to put me in.”SSE has launched Rugby Energy, supporting community rugby clubs by giving them advice on saving money on their energy bills.

Low COVID-19 Count in Pasadena Attributed to State Data Issue

first_imgEVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS 16 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it <span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”>?</span>Pasadena recorded 15 new COVID-19 infections and no new deaths on Monday, representing a major drop compared with recent days, but the number was believed to be the result of an issue with the state data reporting system, officials said.A change in the state system was likely responsible for an artificially low number of new infections reported, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said. A jump in cases was expected Tuesday as the system catches up.The new tallies raised Pasadena’s total documented COVID-19 infections to 4,822, according to city data. The local death toll stood at 139.Prior to Monday’s apparent data issue, the city’s average daily cases over the prior week had begun a downturn, lowering to 87.1 on Sunday after reaching an all-time high of 94.4.Huntington Hospital continued to report unprecedented levels of COVID-19 patients, with 120 patients being treated at the facility on Monday. Twenty-two of them, or about 18%, were being treated in 30 available intensive care units, for an available ICU capacity of 27%, Huntington Hospital President/CEO Lori Morgan.Meanwhile, the ICU capacity rate across the 11-county Southern California region had dropped to 2.7%, according to the California Department of Public Health. An ICU capacity below 15% triggered the current regionally stay-at-home orders.Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials reported 7,344 additional COVID-19 infections and 7,344 new deaths on Monday, raising the county-wide totals to 532,730 cases of the virus and 8,345 deaths.The county data included some backlogged cases from a single “large lab,” the agency said in a written statement.“Since the beginning of the surge on November 1, cases have increased 625% with younger people continuing to drive the increase in community transmission in the county,” the statement said. “More than 70% of cases are from people under the age of 50 years old.”HOspitalizations across L.A. County surpassed 4,200, officials said. Twenty-one percent of the COVID-19 patients were being treated in intensive care units.“Since December 1, the County has surpassed previous all-time highs every day,” according to the county statement.Although younger populations have been at the forefront of the surge, the elderly continue to see the highest rates of hospitalization, according to the L.A. County Department of Public Health.“By next weekend, there are likely to be over 5,000 patients hospitalized and more than 50% of ICU beds occupied by COVID-19 patients,” the statement warned.“Equally important” as available ICU beds are the staff necessary to operate them, according to the county.“The recent surge in cases has resulted in huge increases in cases among our healthcare workers,” the statement said. “In the last two weeks there have been over 3,400 new cases among healthcare workers.”As the first vaccines arrived in the county on Monday, L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer thanked those who made it possible.Distribution of the vaccine will take time, and vigilance remains necessary during the ongoing surge, she said.“Because it is likely to take a few months to have enough vaccine available to immunize the millions of individuals who live and work in L.A. County, in the meantime, we all must continue to remain extremely diligent in reducing transmission of the virus,” according to Ferrer.“We continue to see extremely high numbers of new cases, hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19. The surge we are experiencing is alarming. If you are not playing by the rules, to be blunt, you are part of the problem, and at this point, you are contributing to these distressing increases in cases, hospitalizations, and deaths,” she said.State public health officials reported 33,278 new infections and 77 additional fatalities on Monday.In total, the state had seen 1,585,044 cases of the virus and 21,046 deaths, according to a California Department of Public Health statement.The statewide average positivity rate over the prior week had reached 10.6%, and the 14-day average was 10.5%, officials said.As of Monday, L.A. County represented 34% of California’s COVID-19 infections and 40% of the state’s fatalities.See also:Huntington Hospital Intensive Care Unit 75 Percent Full Make a comment Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Jenny Cavnar makes MLB history with Rockies-Padres play-by-play call

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) —  Jenny Cavnar has had a long-running career in Major League Baseball, but she slid into a historic new role in the broadcast booth Monday night, becoming the first woman since 1996 to call the televised play-by-play for a major league team.Cavnar called the Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres matchup in Denver alongside analyst Jeff Huson and former Rockies outfielder-turned analyst Ryan Spilborghs. It was a fitting assignment for Cavnar, who previously reported for the Padres before joining the Rockies as a pre- and post-game host in 2012.With more than a decade of baseball reporting in various capacities under her belt, Cavnar called her first televised homerun Monday night when Rockies’ third baseman Nolan Arenado stepped up to the plate.“That ball is shot into left field, fire up the fountains she’s gone,” Cavnar announced, describing the two-run shot in the bottom of the first inning. Her run call coincided with the eruption of the classic Coors Field fountains whenever the home team hits a home run.Cavnar joins a shortlist of women who have called America’s pastime.Mary Shane was the first female in a booth, doing radio for the Chicago White Sox in 1976 before moving on to television; and Suzyn Waldman was the first woman to do baseball game commentary, for a few New York Mets games on radio in June 1993, according to ESPN. Waldman called her first TV broadcast in July 1995 for a New York Yankees versus Texas Rangers game on ABC’s “Baseball Night in America” and her first play-by-play in 1996.Other notable women who have spent time in the booth include Gayle Gardner, who replaced Charlie Jones on the Rockies TV broadcast for the Aug. 3, 1993 Rockies and Cincinnati Reds game. Pam Boucher announced 36 games on Yankees TV, WPIX in 1977.Cavnar, a Colorado native, previously made history in 2015 as the first female analyst for a series of National League games in the radio booth.She felt the love with messages of support from around the league and other women in the industry, including ESPN “Sunday Night Baseball” analyst Jessica Mendoza.Although the Rockies fell to the Padres 13-5, the night will go down as a win for Cavnar.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Van Dyke Hits 6 3s and scores 20 to lift Utah over USC

first_imgUSC’s Jonah Mathews was carried off the court after suffering a leg injury near the end of the first half but returned to play in the second half and finished with 10 points. March 8, 2019 /Sports News – Local Van Dyke Hits 6 3s and scores 20 to lift Utah over USC Just one game after going scoreless on five shots, the senior guard made six 3-pointers and scored 20 points to lead Utah to an 83-74 win over Southern California on Thursday night. “As a shooter, you can’t dwell on a miss. You just know the next one has got to go in. I just make up my mind and let it fly,” Van Dyke said. Utah: Caps the regular season with UCLA at home on Saturday. Utah: The Utes made a strong play for a top-four finish (and can clinch the third seed by beating UCLA Saturday) and a bye in the Pac-12 tournament with one game left. The Utes looked as fluid on offense as they have for several games and limited their scoring droughts with good shooting. “We had a number of one-pass, no-pass shots to start the game … but once we got going with the passing, it was contagious,” Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak said. “It was amazing and something we talked about amongst ourselves before the game and just said, ‘Let’s go hoop with some joy,’” Barefield said. “Our passion showed tonight.” “We’re pretty tough to defend when we play free and get out in transition,” said Van Dyke of the 22-6 edge in fast-break points. UP NEXT Jayce Johnson, Utah’s usual starting center, was out with an ankle issue but the Utes dominated in the paint and outrebounded the Trojans 32-23. The Utes tallied 17 second-chance points to just one for USC. With Allen inside, Van Dyke outside and Barefield slashing, the Utes kept the Trojans on their heels. Boatright has made 29 of 53 3-point attempts in his last five games but the Utes usually had a defender draped on him and limited his attempts. The USC game plan was to do the same to Utah’s shooters. FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Parker Van Dyke knows a short memory can be a shooter’s best friend. USC: Plays its final regular-season game at Colorado on Saturday. Written by “Not having Jayce tonight, we understood we had to really rebound and the guards were able to grab some boards and push,” said Barefield, who had a career-best seven rebounds. The Utes only trailed in the first minute of the game. That allowed the Utes to avoid overthinking and play against their instincts. Timmy Allen scored 19 and Sedrick Barefield had 17 to help the Utes (16-13, 10-7 Pac-12) sweep USC (15-15, 8-9) this season. “I’m trying to be aggressive and take it to them. We’re better when we’re aggressive as a team. When I come out and set that tone, they feed off me,” Allen said. “A couple times on ball screens we gave up those 3s and when we would fight through, they would shot fake and Van Dyke stepped through in the first half and hit some really tough shots,” USC coach Andy Enfield said. BIG PICTURE Utah led 55-48 before going on an 11-2 run that was capped with an alley-oop and dunk from Tillman to Allen. The Utes led 66-50 with 10:06 to play as the crowd roared. USC: The Trojans are limping to the finish. They had been betrayed by horrid free-throw shooting in their prior two outings but this one came down to being a step slow to loose balls and rebounds as they shot 55.6 percent from the field and 70 percent from the line. “We only had two offensive rebounds so we had no offensive rebounds from our guards or forwards. We shot a high percentage from the field but there were a couple toughness plays that we missed out on,” Enfield said. Van Dyke’s 3-pointer gave Utah a 76-61 lead with 3:42 remaining — “I think it’s going in every time he shoots it,” Barefield said — but the Utes, who have struggled with the press at times this season, had a couple turnovers that allowed the Trojans to draw within single digits. It might have been even tighter but the officials withdrew an offensive foul on Novak Topalovic after video review with 2:09 left.
