Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Making a million from your investments is never going to be an easy task, but following one of the world’s most successful investors could help.Warren Buffett has become one of the richest people on earth by investing for the long term, adopting a value investing strategy and avoiding leverage.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As such, now could be the right time for you to forget trying to make a million from high-risk pursuits such as spread betting and forex trading, and instead follow Warren Buffett’s tips.Long-term focusWhile spread betting and forex trading often focus on trying to make a quick profit, Buffett has a long-term approach to generating returns. Many of his most successful holdings have been in his portfolio for decades. This has allowed their management teams to implement revised strategies which have been successful in delivering improved financial performances. It has also allowed their competitive advantages to strengthen their market positions.While all investors have different time horizons depending on factors such as their age, allowing your portfolio holdings as much time as possible to deliver on their potential could be a good idea. It allows compounding to positively impact on your portfolio, while the track record of the stock market suggests that adopting a buy-and-hold strategy is likely to be successful due to the market’s overall rise since inception.Value investingWarren Buffett focuses on the value of the stocks he purchases. This includes considerations for their quality, in terms of whether they offer a competitive advantage, and their price, in terms of whether there is a discount to intrinsic value on offer.Adopting a similar methodology could improve your chances of avoiding lacklustre businesses, or paying a price that is too high for high-quality stocks. Achieving this twin-goal could improve your returns, since the risk/reward ratio of your portfolio is likely to be higher. It may also mean that you are forced to dig deeper into a specific sector to unearth the very best investing opportunities that could improve your prospects of making a million.LeverageTrading forex and spread betting often entails borrowing significant sums of money. In some cases, you may only need a modest amount of capital to enter into a trade that leaves you with a large exposure to a specific asset.Warren Buffett has a strong dislike of debt, and has never invested using borrowed money. Certainly, leverage can magnify your returns. However, it can also lead to you losing more than your initial stake.As such, avoiding leverage can help you to avoid major setbacks that can severely reduce your chances of generating a seven-figure portfolio. The return potential of the stock market, when combined with favourable stock-picking and time, is likely to be a far better, and less risky, means of making a million.

Jack Willis on life in lockdown

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Jack Willis on life in lockdownAdversity and unpredictable challenges are part and parcel with a career in rugby. When sport was quite rightly put on hold during these strange and challenging times, it took some getting used to.I was immediately faced with an overriding feeling of uncertainty and, like many others, questioned, ‘What do I do now?’ It was a feeling I had experienced only too well before in my career with Wasps.At the end of the 2017-18 season I was selected to go on tour to South Africa with England, an incredible opportunity for me in my ‘breakthrough season’. However, after sustaining an injury to my ankle against Saracens just nine days later I was sitting on a hospital bed, with my left ankle in a boot and right knee in a brace, thinking, ‘What am I going to do if I don’t come back from this?’Big blow: Jack Willis is taken off after his injury in 2018 (Getty Images)It is hard to separate rugby from your ‘everyday life’ as the daily structure of a player affects every aspect of life, including what you eat, wear, think and when you can train or live your normal life. It means that you only have a sense of normality during our scheduled off-season.PRE-ORDER RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE’S 60TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE (JUL-20) HEREThe injury caught me at a time where I was consumed in the ‘rugby bubble’ and showed me how quickly the most integral part of your life can be taken away from you, ultimately changing your life in an instant.While it was a difficult time, the injury gave me a bit of perspective and taught me the fundamental importance of achieving a better work-life balance moving forwards. In order for me to take full advantage of this time, I’ve found it crucial to maintain a form of structure to my day, taking inspiration from playing. I set the agenda for when to wake up, eat, train and ensure that I put time aside for interests outside of rugby to ensure I am as productive as possible.Without a structure or purpose to each day, I believe that this time that we have on our hands will be gone before we know it and I wanted to ensure I was able to be as productive as possible before I got back to the season and training.Getting to this mentality hasn’t come without difficulties and through the experience, I’ve found that I really struggle to motivate myself to train if I leave it until later in the day but I find that training first thing is the best way to start my day. It makes me feel more productive and energised and allows me to focus my mind on my agenda.Not having my team-mates around to laugh and joke with, or coaches to motivate me has been a real change. Now it’s just me, a pair of boots and any patch of grass big enough to run on.Since my injury, I have pursued an interest in property, and have recently launched my own property finance and search agency business, RockCap, with former team-mate Alex Lundberg, sourcing opportunities for investors, funds and developers.As team-mates you have to be open and honest with each other, able to take constructive criticism and advice, bring the best out of your game, and have a positive impact on the wider team and we have taken this off the pitch to set us in good stead for a strong business partnership.Starting your own business can see you faced with different challenges; through rugby I have learnt to deal with adversity head-on which has benefitted me enormously in these first few months.Good shout: Jack Willis celebrates scoring a try against Saracens earlier this season (Getty Images)I am constantly seeking new opportunities to expand my knowledge and talk to experienced property professionals and the lockdown has provided me with the opportunity to invest more time into the business. I’ve been fortunate to talk to some very experienced people from across the sector in the West Midlands who I’m looking forward to working with during and after lockdown.Investing time in my business has already been hugely rewarding, enabling me to also further my skill-set through online courses with Open Learn on Asset Allocation in Investment. So far, the courses have given me a great insight into different portfolio models and asset classes.The rugby community helps bring people together and through Wasps I have already been able to expand my network. I feel this work sits perfectly in supporting the creation of a better work-life balance alongside my rugby, giving me a different focus outside of the training ground, leading me to become more relaxed, and allowing me to have a clear head building up to training and games.It’s exciting to bring together my passions for rugby and business, and to be heading into the new phase with a former team-mate. I’m really looking forward to getting back with the team once the lockdown has lifted and continuing to strive to improve both on and off the field. Since I regained my fitness, I have loved every minute of training and playing, not only because of how much I missed it, but because of my new-found balance. This has allowed me to remain focused on things outside of rugby during the pandemic, which has significantly helped me mentally.There are two ways we can look at the adversity we face during this lockdown: as a boring and frustrating experience or an opportunity to grow and learn.

La tradición ha llegado hasta la 77ª. Reunión de la Convención General cuando obispos y diputados alteraron la versión actual del Título IV de los cánones disciplinarios que han estado en vigor por poco más de un año. Y aún bien podrían presentarse más cambios.Los ajustes de 2012, llevados a cabo por vía de la Resolución A033, conllevaban fundamentalmente el esclarecimiento de ciertas definiciones, así como el perfeccionamiento y la aclaración de partes del proceso.Sin embargo, la reunión de los obispos y los diputados del 5 al 12 de julio en Indianápolis también instruyó a la Comisión Permanente sobre Constitución y Cánones de la Iglesia a emprender una revisión completa en el curso de los próximos tres años de la implementación del Título IV. La Resolución C049, propuesta por la Diócesis de Albany, orienta a la comisión permanente a determinar “la medida en que los elementos de seguridad, veracidad, restauración y reconciliación están surtiendo efecto” tal como se propuso en primer lugar en la resolución de 2006 (A153), que autorizó el trabajo que dio lugar a la actual iteración.La Convención también convino con la solicitud de la Diócesis de Florida Central (en la Resolución C116) en revisar la constitucionalidad de dos cláusulas del Título IV de la Constitución y Cánones. Una de ellas le otorga al obispo primado la autoridad de restringir el ministerio de un obispo diocesano por una supuesta ofensa sin contar con el consentimiento del comité permanente de la diócesis o, en el caso de una supuesta deserción, sin el consentimiento de los tres obispos de mayor antigüedad en la Iglesia, tal como exigía la versión anterior del Título IV.La otra conlleva lo que se ha percibido como una violación del Artículo IX del Título IV en la Constitución de la Iglesia, que dice que los presbíteros y diáconos “serán juzgados por un Tribunal instituido por la Convención de la Diócesis”. Algunas diócesis, entre ellas la de Florida Central, han cuestionado si la Convención General puede prescribir un sistema denominacional para disciplinar al clero diocesano ya que -arguyen- el Artículo IX asigna esa autoridad a las diócesis. Tal sistema denominacional ha existido por lo menos desde 1994.Los redactores de la versión actual del Título IV, que entró en vigor el 1 de julio de 2011, siempre previeron la necesidad de cambios.“Uno no puede instituir el alcance de los cambios para el nuevo Título IV sin modificaciones que necesitan elaborarse”, dijo Diane Sammons, canciller de la Diócesis de Newark, que acaba de concluir un período de seis años en la comisión de Constitución y Cánones (los últimos tres como su presidente), en una entrevista reciente con el Servicio de Prensa Episcopal (ENS, por su sigla en inglés). “Todo el mundo [en la comisión] entendió eso y todo el mundo que trabajó con el Título IV entiende que no va a salir a la perfección en el primer borrador y que vamos a tener que seguir dándole vida y aliento y haciéndole cambios en tanto se mantenga, esperemos, fiel a los conceptos y a la teología que lo respalda”.Steve Hutchinson, canciller de la Diócesis de Utah que presidió el comité legislativo sobre los cánones de la Cámara de Diputados durante la Convención, se manifestó de acuerdo, añadiendo que “sabemos que probablemente no los lograremos todos y que habrán unos cuantos más, y quizás algunos en los que nadie ha pensado todavía” -que se previeron perfeccionamientos, aunque “no grandes cambios drásticos de dirección o de filosofía”.Sammons agregó que mantener un equilibrio entre el perfeccionamiento de los cánones mientras siguen siendo fieles a su nuevo espíritu “va a ser el reto”.Parte de las dificultades provienen de que al menos a algunos episcopales les disgusta el Título IV revisado.Algunas objeciones al Título IV revisado“Desde el punto de vista del procedimiento es un desastre. En lo que respecta a los derechos de los clérigos, es más que un desastre”, dijo a ENS Michael Rehill, diputado suplente de la Diócesis de Newark. “Necesitaba una revisión básica total. Se aprobó aceleradamente sin que nadie al parecer tuviera una idea de cómo realmente iba a funcionar en algunos aspectos”.En otros aspectos, insiste Rehill, los redactores sabían exactamente lo que estaban haciendo. Él dice que su intento fue quitarles “todos los derechos a los clérigos” y darles “un increíble poder a los obispos para deshacerse de los sacerdotes”.Rehill, ex canciller de la Diócesis de Newark, es el principal funcionario operativo del Abogado Canónico, que defiende a los clérigos episcopales en asuntos disciplinarios.Y el Rdo. Canónigo Christopher Seitz, el Rdo. Dr. Philip Turner, el Rdo. Dr. Ephraim Radner y el abogado Mark McCall, en un artículo para el Instituto de la Comunión Anglicana, se han opuesto sistemáticamente al Título IV revisado en algunas de sus aplicaciones. En octubre de 2011, llamaron al Título IV “un mal canon que está siendo mal implementado”. Pidieron su revocación y un regreso a la versión anterior, que según dijeron “ofrece un juicio justo y adecuado a los acusados, no expande inconstitucionalmente los poderes del Obispo Primado, y en particular lo entienden las personas encargadas de administrarlo”.El resumen de las objeciones de los cuatro hombres apuntan al quid de la disputa sobre el Título IV. Su primera inquietud tiene que ver con el cambio teológico en la revisión, la segunda está relacionada con el cambio en la disciplina de los obispos y la última podría atribuírsele al hecho de que la Iglesia está aún aprendiendo a implementar el nuevo Título IV.Poco después de que los cuatro dieran a conocer sus objeciones, Hutchinson se unió a Duncan Bayne, vicecanciller de la Diócesis de Olympia, y a Joseph Delafield, canciller de la Diócesis de Maine, para publicar un documento que dijeron “establece de manera concluyente la constitucionalidad” del Título IV.Cómo la Iglesia logró el nuevo Título IVLa inquietud sobre el debido proceso expresada por los escritores del Instituto, por Rehill y por otros es el fruto de importantes cambios en la filosofía y el enfoque que se reflejan en el Título IV revisado. La simiente de estos cambios se remonta por lo menos al año 2000 cuando la Convención General pidió que un equipo de trabajo evaluara el modo en que la Iglesia disciplinaba al clero a través del Título IV y otros métodos.En ese tiempo la versión actual del Título IV había estado vigente por sólo cuatro años, aprobada por la Convención General en 1994 y puesta en vigor dos años más tarde, [se trataba de] un sistema basado en el código de justicia militar de las Fuerzas Armadas de EE.UU. (la versión actual puede consultarse aquí). La versión 1994-96 del Título IV se originó en una oleada de casos de conducta sexual impropia en el clero episcopal que data por lo menos de 1986.Esa versión del Título IV buscó darle claridad y uniformidad (incluido un sistema judicial uniforme) a los procesos disciplinarios que en gran medida habían sido dejados a discreción de las diócesis individuales, reportó ENS en un comunicado de prensa de septiembre de 1994. Los cánones denominacionales, que no habían sufrido cambios desde su creación en 1915, fueron concebidos para tratar fundamentalmente con problemas de herejía y doctrina, informaba ENS.Hasta los años setenta, los casos de mala conducta del clero se arreglaban en privado entre los obispos y los clérigos acusados, dijo a ENS, en ese tiempo, Robert Royce, ex canciller de la Diócesis de Long Island y autor principal de la resolución del Comité Permanente sobre Constitución y Cánones.Sammons hizo notar durante su entrevista con ENS que la Iglesia Episcopal fue aplaudida en 1994 “porque se apareció con un sistema disciplinario que era sensato. Y eso era de máxima importancia en ese tiempo. Eso nos dio credibilidad. Nos dio un sistema que apoyaba a las víctimas, especialmente a las mujeres, dando un paso al frente de una manera que otras iglesias e instituciones aún no lo han hecho”, ya sea a favor de las mujeres o los niños.Sin embargo, para el año 2000, el Título IV había sido criticado porque se le percibía como “demasiado militarista y rígido en su aplicación” y porque “carecía de un fundamento teológico”. En consecuencia, la Convención pidió una revisión del Título IV.Teniendo en cuenta la teología de la disciplinaEn el informe del Equipo de Trabajo sobre Política y Procedimiento Disciplinario a la reunión de Convención en 2003, los miembros se preguntaron cómo la misión de la Iglesia de reconciliación del pueblo de Dios y de unos con otros en Cristo podía interpretarse en los cánones para “incluir esa nota esencial y seguir manteniendo responsables a los ofensores de una manera significativa”. El equipo de trabajo llegó a la conclusión de que la Iglesia necesitaba “comenzar de nuevo con el Título IV” porque “no sería posible llevar a cabo lo que esperábamos para nosotros mismos aún si hacíamos importantes ajustes al Título IV tal como existe al presente”.[El equipo] le encargó a la Rda. Pamela Cooper-White un ensayo titulado “Algunas ideas al objeto de la revisión canónica: los cánones como don de la Gracia y danza del amor” (que se encuentra en el informe del equipo de trabajo en el Libro Azul de 2003). El equipo de trabajo lo llamó un “catalizador para ulteriores conversaciones en la Iglesia sobre la teología de la disciplina”. Cooper-White, sacerdote episcopal que ahora enseña en el Seminario Teológico de Columbia en Decatur, Georgia, sugirió que el derecho canónico es “una expresión dada por Dios del interés por las normas eclesiásticas que se fundan no meramente en la restricción del mal (como suele ser el caso en el derecho secular), sino que se centran en la creación de una comunidad en la cual se respalda a todos los miembros a vivir una vida basada en el deseo de Dios, y en la alegría de estar en armonía con la bondad original de la creación de Dios”.El equipo de trabajo solicitó, y recibió, la autorización para proseguir su trabajo en el trienio 2003-2006, pero advirtió que acaso no podría llevar a cabo, en el curso de esos tres años, los cambios radicales que contemplaba realizar.En efecto, el equipo de trabajo propuso a la Convención de 2006 un Título IV completamente revisado, que su presidente [del equipo] la obispa de Indianápolis, Catherine Waynick, dijo en ese momento que “recobra[ba] el significado más amplio de disciplina como desarrollo de hábitos que puedan formar a todos los miembros de la Iglesia en ministerios sanos y responsables y que puedan producir reconciliación y restauración cuando ocurran fallos”.La revisión propuesta alejó el Título IV del modelo de justicia penal y lo orientó hacia un modelo basado en sistemas disciplinarios que se usan en otras profesiones, tales como médicos, abogados y asistentes sociales diplomados. Estos últimos modelos se caracterizan por la obligación de parte de los profesionales de cooperar con las investigaciones. En consecuencia, por ejemplo, ellos no pueden rehusar testificar en procedimientos disciplinarios pretextando invocar el derecho de la ley secular contra la autoincriminación.La Convención General rechazó la propuesta del equipo de trabajo de sujetar a ciertos líderes laicos al Título IV. Otros creyeron que los nuevos procesos eran demasiado complicados, especialmente para las diócesis pequeñas.Pero la Convención decidió seguir intentándolo. Aprobó la Resolución A153 para crear un nuevo equipo de trabajo, y le dio una lista de “objetivos, inquietudes y valores fundamentales”, incluido el de acercar el Título IV “a un modelo de reconciliación para todas las circunstancias apropiadas”, en el que se alentara la pronta resolución de los conflictos y la reconciliación de las personas “en el primer momento pertinente y en el nivel más bajo de la Iglesia que resultara adecuado”. Cualquier propuesta nueva tenía por objeto también “mantener el papel pastoral histórico y la autoridad canónica de los obispos” y respetar los “papeles, los derechos y la integridad” de las personas sujetas al Título IV y de “personas, comunidades, parroquias, misiones congregaciones y la Iglesia damnificadas”.En 2009, la Convención aprobó la versión actual del Título IV, que se basa, según su primer canon, en la premisa de que “la Iglesia y cada Diócesis apoyará a sus miembros en su vida en Cristo y procurará resolver los conflictos mediante la promoción de la restauración, el arrepentimiento, el perdón, la restitución, la justicia, la enmienda de vida y la reconciliación entre todas las partes comprometidas o afectadas”.El laicado no está sujeto al proceso disciplinario que bosqueja, pero la revisión codificaba el plan de 2006 de distanciar la disciplina clerical del modelo de justicia penal.Rehill dijo a ENS que en 2009, “los clérigos en la Convención General posiblemente no pudieron llegar a entender lo que realmente estaban haciendo”. Y agregó que la revisión se aprobó rápidamente “cuando la atención de la Convención estaba centrada en la Comunión Anglicana y en los problemas de la sexualidad humana”.La revisión “sencillamente se apresuró a venderse como la supresión del ‘legalismo’ del proceso disciplinario, al hacerlo más pastoral que legalista”, dijo él, para agregar que “no hay nada pastoral en absoluto en el nuevo Título IV”.Otros, entre ellos Hutchinson y Sammons, dicen que el proceso de nueve años de revisión del Título IV incluyó la solicitud de reacciones al laicado y al clero. Hutchinson afirmó que, especialmente desde 2008, el comité sobre Constitución y Cánones, y otros grupos “han brindado numerosas oportunidades y han pedido reacciones, críticas, sugerencias y cosas por el estilo a través de toda la Iglesia para que la gente interviniera en todo lo que creyera que podría mejorarse o que les pareciera mal, o cualquier cosa respecto al Título IV, y nunca tuvimos noticias de [Rehill]”.Un cambio de enfoqueHutchinson, que ha participado en las revisiones del Título IV, al menos desde 1994, y que “en verdad se ha dedicado bastante a la búsqueda de algo que creemos que serviría mejor a los legítimos intereses de la Iglesia”, dice que la versión actual expresa “en definitiva lo que somos como empresa, lo que representamos y la clase de sistemas, procesos y conceptos teológicos que sí tenemos y que reflejan esos intereses”.Sammons dijo que la versión actual equilibra aspectos de un modelo de conducta profesional “con una fuerte dosis de intentar administrar en cada paso del proceso un sentido de cuidado pastoral y de teología”.Ella le dijo a ENS que, pese a las objeciones acerca de la ausencia de un juicio justo, los clérigos resultarán beneficiados con los nuevos procedimientos. Si bien ya no tienen los “derechos penales” que les otorgaban en conformidad con el antiguo Título IV, ellos y las personas a quienes ellos puedan haber afectado no están sujetas a un proceso contencioso desde el mero principio.“Uno no quiere desalentar a personas que son realmente víctimas de tener una pronta y justa resolución a su problema”, afirmó ella. “Pero [el proceso] está realmente concebido para ver si hay en un modo de funcionar, en primer lugar, a través de la comunicación, sin un proceso punitivo, y eso es un beneficio para el clero”.Y respecto a la queja de que el clero ha perdido derechos, apunta Hutchinson, se basa en una serie de privilegios otorgados al clero sólo durante los últimos 16 años, desde la revisión de 1994 que entró en vigor en 1996. Sin embargo, reconoció Sammons, “si uno tiene un derecho, uno quiere conservarlo y aspira a más derechos. Uno no quiere que se lo quiten. Se trata de que no es instintivamente natural querer renunciar a derechos, incluso si a cambio estamos recibiendo algo tal vez más beneficioso”.El fundamento del empeño de revisar el enfoque de la Iglesia a la disciplina del clero que comenzó en 2000, dijo Sammons, fue “esa noción de que vivimos en comunidad y por tanto todos somos responsables los unos de los otros, y parte de nuestra responsabilidad cristiana es ser al mismo tiempo reconciliados”.El actual Título IV, agregó, conlleva el supuesto de que la reconciliación y la restauración “siempre deben ser parte del código disciplinario”.“Luego no debería limitarse a revelar el daño”, agregó. “Debería también restaurar a las personas a la comunidad, y eso incluye al clero, y nuestro sistema nunca le ha prestado atención a eso”.Vivir conforme al nuevo Título IV ha tenido algunos baches, reconocen tanto Hutchinson como Sammons.“Desafortunadamente, ha habido un pequeño número de casos que se han salido de control por causa de los demandados o de sus abogados, en particular por rehusar atenerse a los nuevas reglas y porque las personas encargadas del sistema disciplinario no se han dado cuenta de que tienen la autoridad para controlar y manejar los elementos del tiempo y los gastos del proceso más de lo que han estado haciéndolo”, apuntó Hutchinson.Y, por no haberse centrado en la reconciliación y la restauración, agregó él, el Título IV “va a seguir siendo una labor en progreso en la medida en que avanzamos y seguimos entendiendo las relaciones internas de la Iglesia y la disciplina, pero también lo que significa ser un foro de reconciliación para personas que han tenido problemas muy serios o que han perjudicado muy seriamente a otros”.— La Rda.

A good friend of mine bought an old house some years ago and asked us to develop a concept for its refurbishment. It became the first project of our Hamburg-based architectural studio, asdfg Architekten: the conversion of an old miller’s house into a home for a family with three kids. Due to its history and location, we considered the project a big challenge, but we also saw significant potential for it to become a very unique single family house with a small garden in the center of one of the most popular neighbourhoods in Berlin. Save this picture!© Michael PfistererSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Michael PfistererBecause of its status as the oldest building of Prenzlauer Berg (built in 1844), the authorities asked us to reconstruct the facade of the heritage-protected building precisely as depicted on a historical drawing from 1844. We wanted to show the history of the old building, but we didn’t want to pretend that the facade would be 170 years old. In an architectural drawing, a line can be interpreted in many different ways: e.g. as a gap in the wall, a section line or a difference in height. The concept we developed was to argue that the lines in the historical drawing could be read as differences in the height of the plaster-rendered facade using ancient techniques and materials. It took us quite some time and many visualisations and physical models to convince the authorities of our approach. As a result of its prior use as a police station and a workshop, followed by many years of vacancy, the house was in a very dilapidated condition, and the interior was divided into many very small rooms. In order to create a generous space, we only kept the outer walls and one massive wall in the middle. The staircase, kitchen, as well as the sleeping galleries for the children are ‘plugged’ into this wall. The main inner-staircase is divided in two parts. The first five steps lead through the big wall on a small platform, where it is possible to experience the full height of the main room. The second part hangs from an open gallery which spans from one wall to the other, creating the parents’ working and sleeping spaces, which are separated by a huge sliding door. For the staircase and the kitchen interior, we reused the wood of the old beams of the former ceilings. The old brick walls were left uncovered and are visible from the inside.Save this picture!© Michael PfistererSave this picture!© Michael PfistererThe design process was carried out in close consultation with the client, which resulted in many highly personalized and individually created elements. Not only the cabinets, but almost everything, from the shutters to the washbasins and even the bathtub, was custom made for this project.Save this picture!© Michael PfistererProject gallerySee allShow lessWehrhahn-Line Düsseldorf / netzwerkarchitektenSelected ProjectsProperly Breathing House / H&P ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Architects: asdfg Architekten Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Germanylast_img read more

TCU nursing majors respond to Miss America controversy

first_imgSophia Doumanihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sophia-doumani/ Linkedin Rec Center fighting stigma of women and weight lifting Linkedin Facebook printSome TCU nursing students have joined critics of “The View” and its hosts’ remarks about the nursing profession.Others said the anger may be overblown because the women were trying to be provocative and make people laugh.Instead of singing or doing some other type of performance in the Miss America Pageant, Miss Colorado, Kelley Johnson, spoke about her experience as a nurse while dressed in her medical scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck.Michelle Collins’s and Joy Behar’s dismissive remarks about Miss Colorado’s talent in the pageant caused the show to lose five advertisers.Collins said Miss Colorado sounded like she was reading her emails out loud and that it was not a real talent. Behar asked why Miss Colorado had a “doctor’s stethoscope” around her neck.Nurses around the country went on social media to express their disbelief over these comments. The hashtags #nursesunite, #showmeyourstethoscope and #nursesmatter have been trending.Junior nursing major Catherine Quinn said she thought Miss Colorado’s talent was a refreshing take on the pageant world.“I liked how she came in her scrubs and not an elaborate gown and told her real life story about what she does,” Quinn said. “I think it made people see nursing as a talent and not just a profession.”Junior nursing major Katie McAuliffe said she was, “really excited to see that Miss Colorado was representing nurses in such a positive way and that she didn’t do the typical singing-type talent.”Senior nursing major Brooke Roberts said she liked the monologue, but didn’t think it was a talent.“I think nursing itself is a talent but not her speech. I don’t think it was appropriate for the talent portion of the competition,” Roberts said. “I think the people on” The View” were just trying to make comments like they do every single day and make everyone laugh. I don’t think everyone should have taken it so personally.”Senior nursing major Morgan Meyer said she thinks the women on “The View” are just uneducated.“There were some people who reacted really angrily, but I think they just need more education about how nurses actually use a ‘doctor’s stethoscope’ more than a doctor does themselves,” Meyer said. “They go in and assess patients way more than a doctor does.”“The View” issued an apology to nurses shortly following the incident. Johnson & Johnson, Eggland’s Best Eggs, Party City, Snuggle and McCormick Spices pulled sponsorships from the show.[View the story “#nursesunite #showmeyourstethoscope #nursesmatter” on Storify] Sophia Doumanihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sophia-doumani/ Sophia is a senior broadcast journalism and communication studies double major.

Space limited on intramural fields

Zayne Saadi Zayne Saadihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/zayne-saadi/ Facebook + posts TAGStext only Facebook Twitter printParking space isn’t the only fiercely contested real estate around TCU.Men and women’s club soccer, rugby, lacrosse, ultimate Frisbee and the intramural flag football league all share the intramural fields for games and practices during the fall.Different clubs and teams have to get creative in order to find enough space to play, said McCall Moore, president of the women’s club soccer team.“The men and women’s teams usually practice together,” Moore said. “There’s just not enough space for everyone.”Mary Ellen Milam, associate director of programs for the University Recreation Center, works with each team to accommodate their schedules. Milam said Tuesday and Thursday nights are the most crowded nights for practices and games.“She uses this huge spreadsheet to figure out schedules for all these different teams,” Moore said. “It’s crazy because it is literally always completely full.”Moore said playing on regulation size for games after practicing in a confined space during the week is sometimes a difficult transition.“For away games—it’s a weird problem to have—we’ll get to play on a really nice field and we’re like, ‘Wow! I forgot how much faster our runs need to be to move the ball!’” Moore said.Moore said that it can be frustrating trying to find spaces to practice throughout the week, but the crowded space is coming from a positive thing.“We have so many club sports and intramural teams at TCU,” Moore said. “It shows how many students are involved and participation is always a good thing so we really can’t be mad.”Milam said scheduling the limited space is a “cooperative process.”“Club and intramural sports will be able to use the new intramural fields for afternoon games on the weekends,” Milam said. “But the fields will not have lights and cannot be used for night practice or games.”Milam said the new intramural fields should be opening in spring 2017.
