Lebanon raises price of bread amid worsening economic crisis

first_imgBEIRUT (AP) — Lebanon’s caretaker government has raised the price of subsidized bread and flour for the fourth time in less than a year amid a crippling economic crisis. Economy minister Raoul Nehme said Monday the price of a bag of flatbread would be revisited if the local currency gains strength in the face of the dollar or if the price of wheat worldwide decreases. For now, Nehme said a small bag of flatbread will sell at 1,750 Lebanese pounds (20 cents at black market rate), up from 1,250 pounds (14 cents). The weight of the bag would increase by 50 grams (1.7 ounces.)last_img read more

Campus Ministry to offer Confession on the Road

first_imgArchimedes took a bath and an apple fell on Isaac Newton’s head, but all it took for Fr. Joseph Corpora to attain his aha moment was a story told by a priest from Panama in a meeting with all the Missionaries of Mercy last summer at Rome.The priest said he had gone to a train station to hear confessions.“I thought ‘Oh, that’s so interesting that he just went out of the church and sat in a train station,’” Corpora said. “I thought we should do something like that, too. We should go where the students are, rather than just having them come to the Basilica. That’s how it began, with one priest saying one that, that I thought was a good idea.”What resulted from this moment of inspiration was Confession on the Road, Campus Ministry’s newest initiative to make the sacrament of confession more accessible to the members of the Notre Dame community. Now, students, faculty and staff are able to participate every Monday from noon to 1:30 p.m. at LaFortune Student Center and every Tuesday from noon to 1:30 pm and from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at Duncan Student Center. Corpora said there is no set location, but they will find an empty space and put up a sign.This new opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation allows members of the community to skip lines at the Basilica and receive the sacrament on their way to Star Ginger or Starbucks. “I think this is in many ways just lowering the barrier to entry there, lowering the anxiety and letting students know that ultimately this is a sacrament of God’s mercy and love,” Fr. Nate Wills who participates in the initiative, said.Though confessing sins in the middle of campus’s two most populated areas might seem unorthodox and unconventional, Fr. John Herman, a participant in this program, praised its uniqueness. “It is a very creative initiative that responds to what Pope Francis says about the church needing to move out outside the church’s walls to reach out to the people and their needs,” he said. “I think it is a great way for us to be where students are and to make the sacrament of confession available to them in a way that is right there. They don’t have to go out of their way, they don’t have to make an effort. It’s right there and accessible.”Certainly, receiving the sacrament in the student centers varies from the traditional environment at the Basilica, especially because of the informality and spur-of-moment approach; yet this could actually be one of its greatest advantages, Wills said. “It could be more spontaneous, less, sort of, filtered and more honest about where people are and what’s on their hearts right now,” he said. “There’s a beauty there of, you know, you just go with what you have on your heart in the moment.”Moreover, the change in scenery lends itself to teach valuable lessons about Catholicism Fr. Matthew Kuzcora, one of the priests who hears confessions, said.“Being at a student center, I use it to explain that God is everywhere, not only at church,” he said.Yet, whether at the Basilica or at the student centers, the truth is that “the sacrament is the same in both places,” Fr. Kevin Grove said.“Confession on the Road makes evident to all members of this campus the overwhelming all-the-time availability of God’s abundant love and mercy,” he said.Wills encouraged members of the community to take advantage of Confession on the Road.“This is a unique opportunity, it’s a unique place in that sense, and you may never have this many opportunities to encounter the sacraments in your life as you do now, and I think people who really take advantage of that are maximizing their Notre Dame experience,” he said. “Because it really is a part of growing as a person, it’s part of discovering who you are, and my hope is that as people continue to discover who they are in college, that they recognize that first and foremost, beyond everything else and above everything else, they are a beloved child of God.“We all make mistakes and we all mess up and the sacrament of reconciliation is a lifelong journey for all of us that we keep on coming back to about healing and restoring our relationship with Christ.”Tags: Campus Ministry, Confession on the Road, Fr.

Overscheduling

first_imgWant your children to be better prepared for their future? Stop overscheduling, and let them play, says a University of Georgia child development specialist.“It stems back to the brain and how it develops,” said Diane Bales, who works with children through UGA Cooperative Extension and the College of Family and Consumer Sciences. “The brain needs time to consolidate and organize to really make sense of what you’ve learned. … If children are doing something all the time, they don’t have that break. They don’t get to use what they’re learning.” Valuable skillsPlay is especially important for elementary-aged children. “They really learn best through active exploration,” Bales said, “what we call play.” Children who don’t get the time to play often have trouble making decisions when they get older. In a 2007 report in Pediatrics entitled “The Importance of Play in Promoting Healthy Child Development and Maintaining Strong Parent-Child Bonds,” researchers say that play contributes to the cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being of children and youth. “Undirected play allows children to learn how to work in groups, to share, to negotiate, to resolve conflicts and to learn self-advocacy skills,” the report went on to say. “We’re starting to see children who can’t play well,” Bales said. “They’re always wanting an adult to tell them what to do, when to do it and how to do it.”According to Bales, children who play less are less creative as they get older and have trouble developing more complex problem-solving skills. Cutting out playWhen asked why children are overscheduled out of play, Bales said some parents and schools feel more is better when it comes to schoolwork and activities.“A lot of adults tend to think of play as what children do when there’s not something important to do,” she said.It also stems from a desire to keep up with others, she said. And in some cases, it’s because parents need their children to be supervised while they’re at work.“Some of it is fear of safety,” Bales said. “And some of that is realistic, and definitely parents shouldn’t send their children out into an environment that’s not safe to play in. And some people feel like they need to do something important when they’re with their kids.” Bales said she gets caught in that when her nephews come over, and she wants to do big things, like take them to the zoo.“What they look most forward to is pulling out the toy drum,” she said.Helicopter parentsBesides taking play away, parents who control their children’s lives and schedules too much can also take away their freedom to learn from their mistakes. “It usually comes from a very kind and loving impulse by the parents,” Bales said. “But children never learn the consequences of their own actions.”A child who forgets his lunch, she said, won’t learn to remember to grab it if he knows mom will run over to the school if he forgets it again. “What they’re not learning there is responsibility,” Bales said. “If they have to go through the afternoon hungry, they’ll be a whole lot more likely to remember their lunch the next day.” Helicopter parents can also become a problem if they don’t let their children go once they’ve graduated from high school. Bales cites cases where a parent will call up a college professor asking why she gave their child a bad grade. “If you get to college and your mom and dad are still fighting your battles for you, you don’t have the skills you need for adult life.”Giving children freedom to make mistakes doesn’t mean that parents shouldn’t advocate for their children. But if their impulse is always to rescue their children, they may never learn to solve their problems.last_img read more

Forage Sorghum

first_imgWith water use and rising expenses a concern, forage sorghum is a cheaper, more effective alternative for Georgia cattlemen feeding dairy cows, according to University of Georgia animal and dairy scientist John Bernard.UGA scientists are studying the effects of forage sorghum as a dietary supplement for dairy cows. Forage sorghum has multiple benefits that make it an attractive option: It’s drought tolerant, can be harvested twice in the same growing season in the southern part of the state and supports equal milk production to those cows fed corn, Bernard concludes.“It’s a nice fit for those cattlemen who are stretched thin. In some areas, they can’t water well enough to produce a top-notch corn crop. Forage sorghum might be a very good option because of its greater efficiency in using water,” Bernard said.Corn silage is greatly dependent upon water to produce an adequate crop. Forage sorghum, on the other hand, requires less water, an important factor when rainfall is limited. Bernard reports forage sorghum requires 30 percent to 50 percent less water than corn.“Forage sorghum will sit there and hibernate until we get some rain. The impact on corn is much more negative. It will either kill it or stunt it to the point we can’t recover yield as well as with forage sorghum,” Bernard said. “You’ve got a better likelihood of producing a crop in drought-like conditions with forage sorghum.”He said forage sorghum would be especially beneficial for producers who farm on dry land or in fields where irrigation access is limited.The development of new varieties has advanced forage sorghum production, specifically the brachytic dwarf varieties that possess the brown midrib (BMR) trait, which increases fiber digestibility in the cows. Traditional sorghum grows up to 12 feet tall. It is susceptible to falling over or lodging, if it encounters any type of wind, which can be a problem during harvest time.At 6 feet, the new dwarf varieties are much shorter, but produce similar yields as the taller sorghum with more leaf per unit of dry matter.Forage sorghum is also capable of producing adequate yields twice in a growing season. Bernard said that forage sorghum can be cut, refertilized and grown to be harvested a second time, if it’s planted early enough. The resulting crop is just as effective at supporting milk production as it was the first time it was harvested. Also, harvesting forage sorghum twice saves time and money for farmers who attempt to produce corn twice in a year.“You don’t have to spend money on fuel to replant the crop and you don’t have to buy seed to replant,” Bernard said. One drawback to forage sorghum is the rise of the sugarcane aphid. Bernard said the pest has changed its diet to sorghum crops in recent years, which has forced breeders to research for sorghum-based breeding lines that are more tolerant of the pest. Chemical treatments are available to spray and provide control of the insect, which also requires a rigorous scouting schedule.“If you don’t catch it, it can significantly alter the nutrient quality as well as the yield of the forage sorghum,” Bernard said. “Everybody is a little leery at the moment. It adds cost to production. It increases the complexity of growing this crop.”Despite the dangers linked to sugarcane aphids, Bernard believes forage sorghum remains a viable alternative for Georgia farmers to consider. Years of research conclude that cows produced equal amounts of milk after consuming forage sorghum when compared to those who were fed corn. “It may not be the option for everyone, but it’s another option to look at,” Bernard said.last_img read more

When leaving our state, Director Cordray vowed to always keep the people of the Delta in mind as he carried out his charge to protect consumers. In explaining the proposed regulations yesterday, Cordray acknowledged that people need ways to borrow money.“Consumers need credit that helps them, not harms them,” Cordray said. Many payday lenders target people who lack access to bank services.

The quiet Brisbane suburb that analysts say is booming in value

first_imgYeronga was one of Brisbane’s quiet achievers according to CoreLogic.ALTHOUGH the booming property market in Sydney and Melbourne has dominated the headlines, one of the strongest growing suburbs across Australia over the last 12 months was in Brisbane.Yeronga in Brisbane’s south scored the number two spot in the Top Performing Suburbs Report from real estate analytics company CoreLogic.The report had a look at the rate of growth over the last 12 months across a number of consistently strong performing suburbs.Cockatoo, a small town 48km south east of Melbourne was the top of the list, with its median house value growing by 41.6 per cent over the last 12 months to $569,177.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus20 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market20 hours agoYeronga has a slightly lower median value growth over 12 months of 40.9 per cent according to the report.Head of research at CoreLogic Cameron Kusher said this was from valuation data rather than sales data, and as Yeronga was a tightly held suburb with a small number of recent sales the rapid increase in value had not yet been seen in increased sales prices.“It is more of a holistic approach,” Mr Kusher said. Of the top 50 suburbs named in the report, only two Queensland suburbs made the cut.Mr Kusher said Yeronga might not seem cheap, with homes currently having a median sales price of just under $900,000, but when compared to equivalent suburbs in Sydney and Melbourne it looked like good value for many buyers. “Something close to the river and close to the city is pretty desirable,” he said.last_img read more
