BP has shut down 95 per cent of oil production linked to a pumping station at Alaska’s North Slope after a leak was found on Saturday. The 800-mile Trans-Alaska pipeline has been closed while repairs are carried out. The pipe normally carries 620,000 barrels per day, or nearly 12 per cent of US crude output, from North Slope to the Valdez port in the southern Alaska. BP shares recovered some losses throughout trading yesterday to close down 1.25 per cent at 486.35p. BP is the biggest shareholder in Alyeska, the company that runs the pipeline, while oil majors ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips own smaller stakes. BP also operates 15 oil fields in northern Alaska, which rely on the pipeline for transportation. The shutdown helped push oil prices up more than one per cent yesterday.The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation said yesterday there was no restart date planned for the pipeline, but that work to bypass the leaking pipe was ongoing. “Particularly for BP, it is really important to fix this quite soon,” said Hannes Loacker, oil analyst at Raiffaisen Bank International.“This company sold a lot of assets and it’s probably facing a small production decline.”•BP and the China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC) signed an agreement on deepwater exploration in the South China Sea yesterday. A BP spokesman said it was a cooperation agreement with CNOOC to explore in block 43-11 in the South China Sea.

Daniel A. Westberg, a professor of ethics and moral theology. Westberg died Oct. 18, in a boating accident on Upper Nashotah Lake.The Rev. Dr. Daniel A. Westberg. Photo: Nashotah HouseA faculty member at Nashotah House since 2000, Westberg was a leading scholar in the area of moral theology. Westberg grew up in Japan, where his parents were missionaries with the Evangelical Covenant Church. While in graduate school in Toronto, Canada, he became an Anglican and experienced a call to ordained ministry. After seminary training and ordination in 1978, he served in the Diocese of Toronto for 10 years, in both rural and city parishes. After the death of his first wife, Lynne, Westberg married Lisa and moved the family temporarily to Oxford, England, where he studied at Oxford University with Oliver O’Donovan and Herbert McCabe and wrote a dissertation on Thomas Aquinas and the virtue of prudence. From 1990 to 1998, Westberg taught ethics at the University of Virginia, followed by an interim year teaching theology at a seminary in Canada. Since his appointment to the Nashotah House faculty in 2000, Westberg had been the seminary’s professor of ethics and moral theology. His publications include the following books: “Right Practical Reason: Action, Aristotle and Prudence in Aquinas” (Oxford UP, 1994), “Preaching the Lectionary” (3rd ed.; Liturgical Press, 2006) in collaboration with the late Reginald Fuller, and “Renewing Moral Theology: Christian Ethics as Action, Character and Grace” (InterVarsity Press, 2015). He also published extensively in journals such as The Anglican Theological Review, The Thomist and New Blackfriars, as well as several short articles in The New Dictionary of Christian Ethics and Pastoral Theology (InterVarsity Press, 1995). “The Rev. Dr. Daniel Westberg was a faithful priest of the Diocese of Milwaukee whose gifts as a teacher were a blessing to us all. Our hearts and prayers go out to his wife Lisa, their family and the community of Nashotah House at this sad time. We pray that Dan will go from strength to strength in God’s perfect kingdom,” stated the Rt. Rev. Steven A. Miller, bishop of Milwaukee.  Westberg is survived by his wife, Lisa, his father, a brother and three sisters, four adult children and three grandchildren. Funeral arrangements are pending. On the morning of Oct. 19,  Garwood Anderson, acting dean of Nashotah House, gave a homily on the occasion of Westberg’s passing.Founded in 1842, Nashotah House is a seminary serving the Episcopal Church, Anglican Communion and other ecumenical partners.

San Diego march says ‘Respect and trust Black Womxn’

first_imgSan Diego — Over 300 people showed up on March 10, in overcast, rainy weather, for the “Black Lives Matter: March for Black Women.”  The march was organized and led by Black women for Black women, with individuals and grassroots organizations coming to support and show solidarity.The 2017, Washington, D.C., March for Black Women organized by Black Women’s Blueprint, Trans Sistas of Color Project, Black Youth Project 100, and allied state anti-violence coalitions and held on September 30, 2017, the twentieth anniversary of the Million Woman March, inspired the San Diego march. Local San Diego organizers held two Black Women roundtable discussions and then began plans for this historic March for Black Women, which was hosted by Black Lives Matter-San Diego and the March for Black Women organizing committee. (#M4BWSD)Sister Karen of the Kumeyaay nation began the opening rally with a prayer, followed by Nyisha Geedoubleu, who gave the background story on “why we march.”Nyisha Geedoubleu read a list of four demands, while a condensed version of the demands was listed on the lead banner.  She introduced the speakers, courageous women who told compelling, truthful, heartfelt stories of survival that touched issues partially summarized in the first demand: “Acknowledge and challenge centuries of abuses that are still happening today, including sexual violence and reproductive violations against Black bodies, especially the brutalization of trans women, Black girls, all Black Womxn.”The march began at the corner of Logan and Euclid avenues with the sisters from the Kumeyaay nation in the lead, and ended at the Malcolm X Library with a closing rally. The beautiful banner was held by Black women, followed by hundreds of people — all colors, all ages, nationalities, faiths, individuals, couples, families — and an array of signs, banners and colorful umbrellas.Marchers chanted, “Say their names!” as the names of Black women killed, brutalized, detained and jailed were spoken. Marchers took up half of the four-lane street, stopping traffic as people from the community joined.The overall message repeated throughout the march and closing rally was  “We are strong, beautiful Black Womxn and we demand respect and trust.”The Brown Berets provided security and the Kumeyaay sisters provided medical attention to anyone in need.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

This represents around $900 billion in unpaid principal.Black Knight stated that 6% of all GSE-backed loans and 11.6% of loans backed by the Federal Housing Administration and the VA are currently in forbearance plans. An additional 8.2% of loans in private-label securities (PLS) are also in forbearance.GSE loans saw the largest declines in forbearances, falling by 200,000—an 11% drop. Portfolio and PLS also fell by 11%, which is 136,000 fewer active forbearance plans.FHA and VA loans saw marginal improvements, dipping 6% for a reduction of 93,000.”This latest decline in the number of homeowners in active forbearance is an encouraging sign of continued improvement,” said Andy Walden, economist and Director of Market Research for Black Knight. “The reduction of roughly 435,000—the largest single-week drop yet—was driven at least in part by the fact that more than half of all active forbearance plans entering the month were set to expire at the end of June. While the majority of those have been extended, this week’s data suggests a significant share were not.”This report comes shortly after Black Knight reported that 4.1 million homeowners were past due on their mortgages, causing the national delinquency rate to rise to 7.76%.Delinquencies jumped 20% and 1.3 percentage points higher in May, which Black Knight noted, “would have been the worst single month ever recorded if it weren’t for the 3.1 percentage point increase the month prior.”The delinquency rate is up 4.5 percentage points from the 3.2% record low recorded back in January.While servicers have a major task now in assessing loans in forbearance, Black Knight said, “this will also provide an early look at roll rates of loans in active forbearance,” and the insight from this summer “can be used for downstream modeling on performance and the residual volume of loans in active forbearance in coming months.”The total number of loans that are either past due or in foreclosure is 4.3 million, up from 2.3 million at the end of March, according to Black Knight. However, the foreclosure rate is down by 5.8%.

Much of his ministry has been in the role of planter and/or pastor of churches in his home state and in New York and the Panama Canal Zone.“I might have stayed in the Canal Zone except we were there in 1964 when the anti-America riots broke out,” Matthews said.He was caught in a situation where rocks and bottles were hurled at his vehicle.“But, I kept driving and got to the Canal Zone,” Matthews said.“It was not the time to be in Panama.”But for Matthews, it has long been time to serve the Lord and he has done so in many capacities.He was saved as a teenager when Northside Baptist Church in Troy was a new church. He went back to help them “redream the dream” in 1997 after 19 years in New York state.He is serving as a consultant of the Church Planting Department of the Florida Baptist Convention. He assists churches in the Panhandle in planting evangelistic, reproducing churches that proclaim Christ. He also serves as a church planting consultant and worker wherever God opens a door. “I preached on everything from Genesis to Revelation and did it all in 12 minutes,” Matthews said, laughing.A group of young believers decided that Troy needed a revival and rounded up a crowd of about 200. Matthews got a chance to preach and embarked on the road that God had laid out before him.He accepted “half-time” calls to local Baptist churches and ministered to vagrants sleeping on park benches when he was a student at Howard College.Matthews attended seminary in New Orleans and, for a while, hitch hiked to attend classes there.
