Let him talk with you. Treat each as brothers and sisters and siblings in Christ, and you’ll find a way. I know that.”“I know this guy,” Curry said, gesturing toward Howard. “We’ve been bishops together a long time. He has firmly held convictions. He’s a strong guy; he’s an old lawyer, but he’s a lawyer with a Jesus heart. I just would encourage you to sit down and talk with your brother, and I know he will talk with you.”Some Florida Episcopalians have said that Howard is not living up to the General Convention’s desire to give same-sex couples unfettered access to same-sex marriage in all of the church’s domestic dioceses by putting what they perceive as threatening roadblocks in the way. Howard, who objects to such marriages, has said that’s not true, calling his process one of “collaboration and transparency” that simply requires conversation among him, the rector who wants to offer same-sex marriage, and the congregation’s wardens.Howard formulated his policy in response to General Convention Resolution B012, passed in July to end the church’s requirement that bishops give their permission for clergy to use two marriage rites that the previous meeting of convention had authorized (via Resolution A054) for trial use by both same-sex and opposite-sex couples.Curry described how B012 emerged from an attempt to find a way for Episcopalians with “diametrically opposed principles” to remain in relationship without asking one side to renounce its strongly held theological beliefs or the other to give up its access to the sacramental rite of marriage. B012, Curry said, “was the result of people who differ staying in conversation and relationship with each other long enough for the Holy Spirit to show them a better way.”“I am naïve enough to believe that if Elizabeth I could find a way [to do that] in the 16th century, we can find it in the 21st,” he said. “We are a tradition that has found a way to reconcile diametrically opposed positions without compromising either one. It’s called Anglicanism.”Curry was referring to the Elizabethan Settlement, which sought an inclusive middle way for English Christianity between traditional Roman Catholic traditions and the then-emerging Protestant expression.The presiding bishop also told the clergy gathering that General Convention last summer understood B012 “was not the permanent solution,” and it called for the formation of the Task Force on Communion Across Difference to continue to grapple with those differences. That task force is holding its first meeting in mid-March.Curry is spending Feb. 4-5 in the diocese for a previously scheduled visit. As part of his time in the diocese, Curry met with clergy and their spouses at St. John’s Cathedral in Jacksonville. He and Howard spent an hour and 15 minutes conversing in the nave, seated in armchairs in front of the altar, as clergy in the pews listened. Howard asked questions of Curry. Some of those questions were synthesized from those submitted by the clergy ahead of time, according to what the Very Rev. Kate Moorehead, cathedral dean, said in her introduction.Presiding bishops often include clergy-only gatherings during their diocesan visits. However, commenters on the unofficial Diocese of Florida public group Facebook page had criticized what they see as the closed nature of the planned meeting. As is typical, Curry has a number of other public events scheduled in the Diocese of Florida during his visit, at which Episcopalians will have opportunities to interact with him.He will participate in evensong later on Feb. 4 at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Tallahassee. The next day Curry will visit with second- to eighth-graders at Holy Comforter Episcopal School in Tallahassee and have lunch at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, a historically African-American congregation. That afternoon, the presiding bishop is due to confirm a small number of prisoners at Wakulla Correctional Institution outside Tallahassee.– The Rev.

The GSE’s net worth rose to $14.6 billion by the end of the year. Based on the current agreement with the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), the company can retain quarterly earnings until its net worth reaches $25 billion. Fannie Mae provided more than $650 billion in liquidity to the mortgage market in 2019, helping finance more than three million purchases, refinances, and rental units. They were the largest issuer of single-family mortgage-related securities in the secondary market during 2019, with an estimated market share of single-family issuances of 37%. Fannie Mae finances 25% of all single-family mortgages in the U.S. The GSE announced it made changes to its single-family credit risk transfer structure last year, increasing the company’s capital relief and reducing risk. “Fannie Mae also began obtaining credit protection on single-family reference pools containing seasoned loans, increasing the percentage of the company’s book covered by credit risk transfer, reducing the company’s capital requirements, and further reducing risk,” the release states. Fannie Mae’s mortgage portfolio fell to $153.6 billion at the end of 2019 from last year’s final number of $179.2 billion. This is due to the decline in the company’s loss mitigation portfolio driven by sales of reperforming loans.Invest gains were $923 million during Q4 2019 compared to $253 million in Q3 2019. Fannie Mae added that investment gains totalled $1.8 billion in 2019—an increase from last year’s final number of $952 million. “The increase in investment gains for the fourth quarter of 2019 and for the year was driven primarily by an increase in gains from sales of single-family held-for-sale loans and available-for-sale securities,” Fannie said. FHFA Director Dr. Mark Calabria told FOX Business late last year that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are building the capital necessary to get out of conservatorship, but there is still a little way to go. “I believe that under the statute I am required to fix [Fannie and Freddie],” Calabria said.”Fannie and Freddie are less leveraged than when I started,” Calabria added. “We’re going in the right direction.”According to Calabria, regulators will know what the target capital level for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be sometime next year, noting that he’d feel comfortable with “a whole lot more than they have today.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — At least 11 people were arrested, most for disorderly conduct, during a Black Lives Matter protest in New York City Wednesday night as hundreds gathered to express their anger over the recent death of Stephon Clark.The protesters marched from Columbus Circle to Times Square, approximately 15 to 20 blocks, according to ABC station WABC-New York. Social media videos of the march showed at least one police officer leaping over a barricade to make an arrest.Clark, 22, was killed in Sacramento on March 18 when two police officers shot at him 20 times as he stood in his grandmother’s backyard holding a cellphone.Police were responding to a 911 call that a suspect allegedly was breaking car windows and hiding in a yard nearby. According to body-cam footage, the officers thought Clark may have been holding a toolbar or some other form of weapon.The Rev. Al Sharpton is expected to deliver the eulogy at Clark’s funeral Friday in Sacramento. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Visible spectra of the zenith-sky were recorded at Faraday in Antartica (65°S) during 1990. Line-of-sight ozone amounts were deduced by fitting laboratory cross-sections to the spectra. At the lattitude of Faraday, visible spectra are more useful than the u.v. wavelengths used by the Dobson spectrophotometer, because they permit observations of ozone throughout the winter when the sun is too low in elevation for useful measurements with the Dobson. In order to find the accuracy of the visible-light system for the determination of medium- and long-term trends in ozone, Langley plots of the ozone amounts were examined to determine the stability of the offset to the zero of the ozone measurement. The plots revealed changes which correlated with shifts in wavelength of the spectrometer. This allowed the use of wavelength shift as a surrogate for offset, fortunate because the use of Langley plots to determine the offset on an individual day from zenith-sky spectra at high latitudes is unreliable. The standard deviation of the ratios of total ozone measured on the same day at Faraday by the Dobson spectrophotometer and the visible spectrometer was 10% using offsets calculated from wavelength shifts. This is 4% less than the standard deviation using a straight-line fit to the offsets. Although common for Dobson measurements of ozone in the u.v., such Langley-plot analyses are, so far, unusual for visible spectrometers, but are essential for future trend determination, even by systems that are inherently more stable.

On December 15th and 16th, Ween will head to the historic Capitol Theatre for a pair of performances because, as the band noted in their initial announcement, “one night in Port Chester, NY is never enough.” Now, as Ween’s trip to The Cap approaches, the band has announced that they will host a toy drive during their two-night stint.Hosted in partnership with The Capitol Theatre, Ween’s toy drive will benefit the Port Chester Carver Center, an organization that aids children and their families in the local community. Founded in 1943, the Port Chester Carver Center provides individuals and families with the resources and support needed to lead productive, healthy, and independent lives. As the largest and longest running community center in Port Chester, the Port Chester Carver Center continues to meet people where they are and provide them with the tools and resources to help them “build brighter futures.”Fans are encouraged to bring an unwrapped, unopened toy for children ages newborn to 14 years to either of Ween’s Capitol Theatre shows. There will be clearly-marked boxes located inside The Capitol Theatre lobby where fans can drop their donation and help make a child’s holiday dreams come true.The Capitol Theatre has been known to make musical dreams come true even when Ween isn’t hosting a charity toy drive there. As Ween bassist Dave Dreiwitz noted in an interview with Live For Live Music earlier this year,I mean, that place is a just a magical temple of rock music, and it’s one of the greatest venues I’ve had the fortune to play at. All the shows I’ve seen there have been amazing. All my favorite artists play there; YES, King Crimson, and Cheap Trick all played there this past fall. It’s always great—the sound, the vibe—it’s just the greatest.Tickets for the first night (12/15) are sold-out, but a limited amount of tickets remain for Ween’s second show (12/16) here. For ticketing and a full list of Ween’s upcoming tour dates, head to the band’s website here.
