But sometimes, the “obvious solution can be so great a loss, we don’t know how to embrace it,” he said.Leadership is not just a set of personality traits, Heifetz said. Leaders need to practice and build their competencies. One skill is being able to deliver challenging messages that others don’t want to hear.Another skill leaders must hone is fostering collaborative leadership. Sometimes, Heifetz said, leadership is like making soup by using the variety of gifts available.“You can’t lead alone; it will be a heroic suicide,” he said.The Diocese of Atlanta, with 109 worshiping communities, is the ninth largest of the Episcopal Church’s 110 dioceses. The Diocese of Atlanta was created in 1907 and carved from the Diocese of Georgia. Numerous parishes thrive in the largest metropolitan areas of Atlanta, Columbus and Macon, as well as smaller cities, towns and rural communities in the mountains of North Georgia and the lower elevations of Middle Georgia.— Don Plummer is a member of St. Teresa’s Episcopal Church, Acworth, Georgia, and serves as a media consultant for the Diocese of Atlanta.

The charities are Francis House, Christie’s, The New Children’s Hospital Appeal, Rainbow House, The Children’s Society and Cystic Fibrosis Trust.The Children’s SocietyThe Children’s Society is a leading national charity, driven by the belief that every child deserves a good childhood. It provides vital help and understanding for those forgotten children who face the greatest danger, discrimination or disadvantage in their daily lives; children who are unable to find the support they need anywhere else. The Children’s Society’s network of projects helps over 50,000 children and their families each year. Through its pioneering research and influential campaigning, it defends, safeguards and protects the childhood of all children.www.childrenssociety.org.ukCystic Fibrosis TrustCystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-threatening inherited disease in the UK affecting over 380 people in Greater Manchester. Each week five babies are born with Cystic Fibrosis and three young people die – 90% from lung damage. Average life expectancy is just 31, although improvements in treatments mean a baby born today is expected to live longer. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the UK’s only national charity dealing with all aspects of Cystic Fibrosis. It funds research to treat and cure CF, supports families and tries to make sure everyone gets the right care.www.cftrust.org.ukNew Children’s Hospital AppealRoyal Manchester (Pendlebury) and Booth Hall Children’s Hospital will be relocated in 2009 to a brand new state-of-the-art children’s hospital in Central Manchester The New Children’s Hospital Appeal will help ensure the new hospital, which will be the biggest children’s hospital in the country providing specialist services to the Region’s poorliest children, has equipment and facilities that are second to none.www.newchildrenshospitalappeal.org.uk/Francis HouseFrancis House Children’s Hospice offers the families of terminally ill children a respite from their role as carers and gives the children a loving home from home.

Around 40,000 patients are treated each year and medical staff share their expertise with colleagues in hospitals across the region.In addition to NHS funding, The Christie receives a significant amount of money every year through its charity. The money raised is used both to fund cancer research and to contribute to the provision of specialist medical equipment and extras that give the hospital its special comforting and therapeutic atmosphere for patients undergoing treatment for all types of cancer.www.christies.orgThe Legacy Rainbow HouseRainbow House was established in Eccleston near Chorley in 2001 by Joe Mawdsley in response to the needs of her two children. The charity now supports over 120 children and their families from across the North West, specialising in helping children with neurological problems, such as cerebral palsy, and children who have suffered brain injuries, to lead more independent lives. The charity now offers an outreach service in Cumbria and has a new purpose-built centre of excellence, The Legacy, in Mawdesley near Ormskirk.The Legacy Rainbow House uses a wide range of teaching methods including conductive education which is a unified system of learning for children with neurological disorders.

Irish charities ‘behind’ with social media

Record 20,000 first-year applicants for fall 2018

first_imgStudent authors college-friendly cookbook Linkedin World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook Twitter Linkedin Kate Redfield Admissions department celebrating 20,000 applicants printTCU admissions broke a record this year as 20,000 students applied for fall acceptance.The bump in numbers is part of a continued overall upward trend over the past decade, said Dean of Admission Heath Einstein.The previous fall application record of 19,972 was set in 2016.The biggest bump came between 2010 and 2011, when applications soared from 14,079 to 19,166, likely the result of the football team making it to the Fiesta Bowl and Rose Bowl.However, Einstein said more applications does not necessarily yield a stronger incoming class.“While we certainly don’t want our popularity to wane, there are demographic, financial and logistical challenges to consider when weighing the relationship between the size of the applicant pool and the strength of our institution,” Einstein said.Conscious of this, Einstein said his team makes data-informed decisions and strategically deploys admission marketing materials. Enhancing the recruitment and application process is an ever-evolving effort on admissions part,  he said. Implementing new technology and taking continuous stock of processes and events will ensure that prospective students will be provided the highest quality admission program possible.In the last couple of years, TCU has accepted a little more than 40 percent of applicants. The percentage of admitted students who enroll has ranged between 22 percent and 26 percent.Keeping a low acceptance rate helps attract high-achieving students, Einstein said.He said admissions focus is on enrolling students who will maintain the university’s position in the higher education landscape and how they will succeed at TCU.Admissions is already planning for fall 2019 applicants.“The enrollment cycle never truly ends,” Einstein said. “Even though we focus a great deal of energy right now on encouraging admitted high school seniors to commit to TCU, we are equally mindful that high school juniors (rising seniors) have already begun their college search.”Editor’s note: a previous version of this article incorrectly identified Heath Einstien.

Molina hosted a regular program on the Puerto Berrío Stereo community radio station, and as he left the station by motorcycle, he was hit with four gunshots to the head. He was accompanied by his wife, who was wounded but survived the attack.“We hope that the investigation will rapidly uncover the authors of this crime and determine the motive,” Reporters Without Borders said. “On his program, Édison Alberto Molina frequently had accused the local government of corruption. We urge investigators not to discard the possibility that the killing was linked to Molina’s journalistic work.”In other cases, authorities too often have shown a tendency to rule out a connection to a victim’s journalism, the press freedom organization said, citing the murder last July of radio director José Naudín Gómez.Molina hosted the radio program “Consultorio Jurídico,” a legal advice call-in show. He had been receiving death threats in recent months. Two weeks before he was murdered, rocks had been thrown at his law office. A few minutes after the killing, Puerto Berrío city councilman Francisco Villa said he had received a phone call warning that he would be the next victim.Authorities have offered a 20 million peso (approximately 10,400 USD) reward for information leading to the arrest of whoever was responsible for Molina’s murder.
