Duncan II has announced that he plans to retire two years from now and has called for the election of his successor.Duncan has served the Pensacola, Florida-based diocese as its third bishop since May 2001. He turns 70 in December and by the time of his retirement will have been ordained for 45 years. The Episcopal Church requires all clergy and bishops to retire when they reach the age of 72.“I have fought both with the angels and the demons and believe I have reached this place of relative peace (not calm),” Duncan wrote of his decision. “I am facing the call to retire and seeking a new way of being a bishop. My decision to retire has been liberating and empowering.”Duncan said his successor would be consecrated on July 25, 2015. That date will mark the start of his retirement, he said.The diocese was formed in 1970 by combining the southern part of the Diocese of Alabama and the western section of the Diocese of Florida. While the diocesan offices are in Pensacola, the diocesan cathedral, Christ Church, is in Mobile, Alabama. Course Director Jerusalem, Israel

Third sector publishers Fflan Ltd have published “Social Enterprise: What it is and why it Matters” by Dr Martin Price, a consultant to third sector organisation in Wales.The book grew out of a series of workshops given to general business advisers to raise their awareness of social enterprise. It is designed to demystify social enterprise and provide a clear explanation of what it is and what it is not, both for those who are aware of the third sector and the general reader.Dr Price, who has worked with a large number of successful social enterprises, argues that social enterprise matters “because it represents an alternative way of looking at how business works, how it impacts on society and how social ends can be delivered differently from the traditional philanthropic charity model”.Steve Gamgee, Chief Executive of homeless charity The Wallich, said of the book: “Very clearly written and informative. I’ve now passed it on to my Finance Manager”.The book cost £9.99 (postage free) from Fflan Ltd or from Amazon.co.uk:www.amazon.co.uk/Social-Enterprise-What-Why-Matters/dp/1905979002/219

By Eric Pfeiffer – Apr 6, 2018 Trump to USTR Officials: Find Another $100 Billion to Impose on China SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE President Trump announced late Thursday that he had directed US trade officials to find another $100 billion in tariffs to impose on China, in addition to the $50 billion already announced. China ran a $375 billion goods trade surplus with the United States in 2017. Trump has demanded that China cut the trade gap by $100 billion. “Rather than remedy its misconduct, China has chosen to harm our farmers and manufacturers” Trump stated. China’s Ambassador to the US said in response, China will “fight the US at any cost”.According to a White House press brief, President Trump has instructed Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue to, “use his broad authority to implement a plan to protect American farmers and agriculture.” Perdue told reporters earlier in the week that a plan was coming together but was not at liberty to discuss details.Arlan Suderman, Chief Commodities Economist, INTL [email protected] on TwitterAmerican and Chinese officials have both indicated a willingness to find a negotiated solution to their trade differences. Top government officials are expected to hold talks before American tariffs on Chinese imports will take effect. White House Trade Adviser Peter Navarro tells CNBC that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer will lead the talks.Navarro says discussions will focus on getting to someplace “where China stops doing what it’s doing in terms of aggressive attacks on our economy.” He didn’t provide more specific details to CNBC about the timing or locations for future talks between the two countries. Larry Kudlow, head of the White House National Economic Council, says America is trying to rally pro-market countries to push back against China’s unfair trade practices. Kudlow says the administration will have more to say about its effort to recruit other major economies to support the U.S. position.

Albatrosses are known to expend only a small amount of energy during flight. The low energy cost of albatross flight has been attributed to energy-efficient gliding (soaring) with sporadic flapping, although little is known about how much time and energy albatrosses expend in flapping versus gliding during cruising flight. Here, we examined the heart rates (used as an instantaneous index of energy expenditure) and flapping activities of free-ranging black-browed albatrosses (Thalassarche melanophrys) to estimate the energy cost of flapping as well as time spent in flapping activities. The heart rate of albatrosses during flight (144 beats min-1) was similar to that while sitting on the water (150 beats min-1). In contrast, heart rate was much higher during takeoff and landing (ca. 200 beats min-1). Heart rate during cruising flight was linearly correlated with the number of wing flaps per minute, suggesting an extra energy burden of flapping. Albatrosses expend only 4.6% ± 1.4% of their time in flapping during cruising flight, which was significantly lower than those during and shortly after takeoff (9.8% ± 3.5%). Flapping activity, which amounted to just 4.6% of the time in flight, accounted for 13.3% of the total energy expenditure during cruising flight. These results support the idea that albatrosses achieve energy-efficient flight by reducing the time spent in flapping activity, which is associated with high energy expenditure.
