Latest figures show that 1,258 people have survived the virus and recovered.In his sermon, Welby told those gathered that “your suffering and endurance across the afflicted countries have echoed around the world”, adding that “you are remembered at every moment by God.”Stressing the solidarity of Christians and Muslims in England for those suffering in West Africa, he said: “In our churches and mosques… we pray for you, long for good news, and are in pain because of your pain.“I was anxious to share with you the grief that is experienced in this region and especially in Sierra Leone,  a country that has already faced such grief and suffering over the years.”Just as Jesus was born and lived among the poor and suffering, he said, “so must the world come alongside you to support the doctors, hospitals, and volunteers and people of this land who seek to love those caught by Ebola.The archbishop also praised medical volunteers traveling to West Africa and urged the British government to continue its “courageous” response to the outbreak.After the cathedral service, the archbishop met with children affected by Ebola being cared for at the Don Bosco Interim Care Centre in Tintafor.The center, which is run by the Catholic order of Salesians of Don Bosco, provides services including trauma healing, stress reduction, musical and sport therapy, and individual and group counslling. It also provides non-formal school lessons, family tracing and appropriate reunifications with follow-up visits.Welby said he prayed that communities afflicted by Ebola would find comfort and hope from each other –  and from God who is “especially faithful” to those “suffering unjustly through the events of life”.Looking ahead to Christmas, the archbishop said that if asked what the most important part of the Advent season has been for him, he will say it was being with people in Sierra Leone and in South Sudan, which he visited last week.“Your presence is a generous gift, of which I am entirely unworthy. Your faces will be before me in my mind on Christmas Day. Your needs will be in my prayers.“But far more importantly you are remembered at every moment by God, who is faithful and will bring comfort.”Read the Archbishop’s sermon in FreetownThroughout Archbishop Justin Welby’s short visit to Sierra Leone he followed appropriate infection control procedures. As with others returning from the affected countries, his risk of exposure to Ebola has been carefully assessed by a clinician in accordance with Public Health England’s latest guidelines.In light of this, having been allocated to the lowest category of risk, he has been advised that no restrictions on his movements or activities are necessary and he will be continuing with his planned commitments over the coming days.Find out more about the churches’ response to the Ebola crisis by visiting the Anglican Alliance website.

Calibration of a point-counting technique for estimation of biogenic silica in marine sediments

first_imgThe simple technique of point counting is very quick and is suitable for shipboard use, or in any study where high accuracy is not necessary. Point-counting smear slides yields results different from measurements of weight-percent silica if there are systematic differences in shape and density of biogenic and terrigenous grains. In this note I present calibration curves for synthetic biogenic-terrigenous mixtures, to show how the accuracy of point counting may be improved.last_img

first_img Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailAnthony Causi / ESPN Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) — It doesn’t appear Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant, who’s been sidelined with a strained right calf since Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals, will be joining his team on the court anytime soon.On Thursday, following Golden State’s 114-111 win over the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said the injury was “more serious than we thought” and it’s not yet clear when Durant will be back on the court.“Hopefully he continues to progress, and he has made progress but it’s a little more serious than we thought at the very beginning,” Kerr told ESPN. “So we’ll see where it all goes, but he’s in there all day long getting treatment. He’s done a great job of committing himself to that process.”[H]opefully he’ll be back at some point, but we’ll just wait and see,” he added.Durant, 30, is expected to be re-evaluated next week.Game 3 between the Warriors and Trail Blazers will be played Saturday in Portland, Oregon.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Is Alison Platt about to exit from Countrywide as share price dips under £1?

Countrywide’s share price has fallen from nearly £6 a share in September 2015 to £1.02 today as tough trading conditions, worries over Brexit and the rise of Purplebricks have slowly eaten away at its business.The reported problems come just two-and-a-half months since Alison Platt said the company’s hybrid digital roll-out had improved the performance of the business, following a June 2017 soft launch.Alison Platt share price CEO Countrywide January 23, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
