Theology professor dies in San Antonio

first_imgTheology professor Fr. Virgilio Elizondo, who is widely considered the founder of U.S. Latino theology and received the 1997 Laetare Medal, committed suicide Monday in San Antonio, according to a South Bend Tribune report. “San Antonio Police Department officers were called at 1:55 p.m. Monday to a house owned by Elizondo,” the report stated.“The Bexar County medical examiner confirmed to the [San Antonio] Express-News on Tuesday that Elizondo was pronounced dead five minutes after officers arrived, of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”Elizondo, the University of Notre Dame professor of Pastoral and Hispanic Theology, was named in a 2015 San Antonio civil suit alleging Elizondo sexually abused the unnamed plaintiff when he was a minor, according to a report originally run by WSBT. Elizondo last taught at the University during the spring 2015 term, University spokesperson Dennis Brown said in an email. The lawsuit was filed against the Archdiocese of San Antonio, Fr. Jesus Armando Dominguez and Elizondo in Bexar County district court. It alleges Dominguez repeatedly sexually abused the plaintiff, listed as “John Doe” in the 1980s. When the plaintiff asked Elizondo for help dealing with Dominguez’s abuse in 1983, the lawsuit alleges “Elizondo began to fondle the Plaintiff’s genitals, taking advantage of the same sexual liberties Plaintiff complained of with Father Dominguez.”In a report in the Express-News, Elizondo denied the allegations.“The allegations made against me are not true and have absolutely no basis in fact,” Elizondo said in the Express-News report. “I deny all the claims which have been asserted against me.”The lawyer representing the plaintiff in the lawsuit, Thomas J. Henry, said Elizondo’s death is “unfortunate,” mysantonio.com reported Tuesday. “The next stage in this litigation was discovery production and the taking of depositions,” Henry said. “The taking of Father Elizondo’s deposition could have led us to the truth regarding his actions, and his untimely death at this juncture raises even more questions. We will continue to seek and uncover the facts of this matter.”Tags: Theology, Virgilio Elizondolast_img read more

Heirlooms at Rock Eagle

first_imgThe garden at Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, Georgia, supplies between 500 and 2,000 pounds of produce to the environmental education center’s cafeteria each year, but it’s more than a modern kitchen garden – it’s also a living museum. From period tools and garden design to an original cabin, the garden at Rock Eagle’s 4-H Center’s Scott Site allows students and campers a glimpse into the past. Now, garden organizers hope to complete the experience by including heirloom vegetable varieties that were used by gardeners in middle Georgia. “One of the things that we’re really trying to do is to find some varieties and cultivars that are heirlooms native to the middle of Georgia,” said Robert Clemmer, an environmental educator and garden manager at Rock Eagle. “We want seeds that have some kind of story that would be great to highlight in our garden.” In the past they have ordered heirloom seeds from suppliers across the country with mixed results. With a low-input garden like the one at the Scott Site, the vegetables need to be well adapted to growing in Georgia. Clemmer hopes that families around the state will have some proven varieties to share. “Do you have collard seeds that have been passed down through the generations? What about a variety of peas that have been in the family for years?,” Clemmer wrote in a open call for seeds earlier this month. “Rock Eagle is looking for all types of local seeds to grow in our garden.” Fall seeds are a more urgent need, but they’d also love to have spring and summer crop seeds for next year, he said. For more information or to make seed donations, contact Clemmer at (706) 484-2881 or by email at rclemmer@uga.edu.

What a great name!

first_img 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Does your credit union’s name pass the SMILE & SCRATCH test?According to brand expert Alexandra Watkins, “Good names make you SMILE. A great name is Suggestive, evoking a positive brand experience.” A name is Meaningful when your audience “gets it.” “Effective names include Imagery that’s visually evocative to aid in memory. And the best names,” she says, “have Legs, lending themselves to extended mileage, and are Emotional, moving people to action.”“On the other hand, ineffective names make you SCRATCH your head.” Examples:“spelling-challenged” names, that look like a typo or with a strange phonetic spelling that is impossible to remember;“copycat” names that are too similar to competitors;restrictive names that limit future growth;annoying names that frustrate customers;tame names that are flat and uninspired;“curse of knowledge” monikers that make the names “foreign to everyone but insiders”; and“hard-to-pronounce names that make it difficult for people to ask for or talk about your brand.”How important is a brand name? Critically so, says Watkins, owner of Eat My Words, a San Francisco naming firm. A bad name can weaken your brand. “Every time you have to help people spell, pronounce, and understand your name, you are essentially apologizing for it, which devalues your brand.” continue reading »last_img read more

Optimistic return expectations putting pensioners at risk, ASR warns

first_imgParticipants in Dutch pension funds are at risk following too low contributions due to overly optimistic return expectations, pensions insurer ASR has warned.ASR director Fleur Rieter and vice-director Arthur Arbouw said pension funds were failing to recognise the combined impact of low funding, indexation targets and smoothing premiums.Participants are “very unlikely” to receive promised indexation under these conditions, Rieter argued, and could even face a rights discount. “Pensions funds must better inform their participants about the effect and the risk of low contributions,” she said. According to Rieter, last year, more than three-quarters of pension funds applied a smoothed premium, and a large proportion based their policy on the maximum allowed assumptions for returns.“These highest assumptions, such as 7% for equity, are too ambitious,” Arbouw said.He said the return parameters used for setting contributions should reflect real market expectations.“In the case of the civil service scheme ABP, for example, it is clear there is pressure from employers to keep contributions low, and I can imagine that the same goes for other sectors,” he said. “However, it is the participants who must deal with the consequences.”last_img read more
