(AP Photo/The Florida Times-Union, Bob Self)[Episcopal News Service] A Spanish teacher who had been fired earlier in the day March 6 shot and killed Dale D. Regan, the head of Episcopal School in Jacksonville, Florida, on the school’s campus and then turned the gun on himself.Police said Shane Schumerth, 28, came on campus with an AK-47 in a guitar case, went to the administrative office and shot Regan several times before killing himself, according to a report from News4 television station. Teacher Carolyn Cooper told News4 she heard five gunshots.Regan had been at Episcopal for 34 years, teaching English before she became head of school, according to Moorehead. Regan was profiled by the Times-Union in May 2010 during the school’s expansion.Schumerth was hired in August 2010. He graduated from Purdue University with a B.A. in Spanish and had taught Spanish to students of all ages, including an immersion program to eighth graders, the school said at the time.“No children have been injured,” Jacksonville Sherriff’s Office spokeswoman Melissa Bujeda told media at the scene just after 2 p.m., about 30 minutes after the shooting. “This doesn’t appear to be involving any student at the school.”However, some students knew something bad was happening.“Another teacher came in and said, ‘Go to the small office on the side and hide,’” 11th-grader Maria Boyance told News4. “A lot of people were crying and freaking out, but the teachers stayed calm the whole time.”Lilly Sheppard, 13 and in the eighth grade, told the Florida Times-Union newspaper that she was close to where the shooting happened, but didn’t hear gunshots. The head of the upper school ordered her to go back to where she was when she walked out of a classroom. She said she was then evacuated from the school about 20 minutes later.Sheppard called the teacher “shy” and said “he didn’t really seem to fit in with the other teachers.”That morning there were rumors he’d been fired, Sheppard said.“No one seemed that surprised that he’d been fired,” she told the newspaper.Dale Regan, head of Episcopal School of Jacksonville, Florida, was killed March 6 by a teacher fired earlier in the day. Photo/Episcopal School“We have full confidence that Dale Regan is already with God and in heaven with our Lord and savior Jesus, but we ask for your prayers as we mourn this great leader,” the Very Rev. Kate Moorehead, dean of St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral in Jacksonville, said during a later media briefing at the scene with Undersheriff Dwain Senterfitt.Moorehead is vice chair of the school’s board, and Senterfitt’s daughter graduated from Episcopal. “I knew Ms. Regan pretty well, too,” Senterfitt told reporters.Moorehead said, “We have to reassure the students that Dale believed in God and that she, in fact, is in a good place but that it’s okay to be angry and to be upset. I think all of us will go through a lot of emotions in the coming months and even years as we remember this incident.”She also urged parents to pray with their children and to pray for Regan. She also urged parents and students to “pray for the man who was so distraught that he committed this terrible act of violence — pray for his soul.”The school said in part on its website that “the entire school family mourns the loss of our friend and leader.”The school will be closed until March 19, according to the statement. Students were scheduled to be on spring break next week.“We are deeply shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic death of Dale Regan,” the Rev. Daniel R. Heischman, executive director of the National Association of Episcopal Schools, said in a statement. “Our hearts and prayers go out to all members of that community, her family, and her friends. Dale Regan was a great leader of an Episcopal school, deeply devoted to the school that she loved and served for so long, and we have all lost a visionary educator and compassionate human being.”At least three churches, including the cathedral, San Jose Episcopal Parish and St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Jacksonville announced that they would hold prayer services this evening. A memorial service is reportedly planned at the school for March 10.Jacksonville-based Diocese of Florida Bishop Samuel Johnson Howard and other Episcopal clergy gathered at the school to provide pastoral care if they were needed, the Rev. Kurt Dunkle, rector at Grace Episcopal Church in Orange Park, told the Times-Union.“One of the great gifts of being part of a larger church, which we call a diocese, is that when you need your colleagues, they show up,” Dunkle told reporters.Dunkle was in a meeting with Howard when they heard about shootings. The first thing Dunkle did was call to check on the well-being of his daughter, who is a senior at the school.Bujeda said in her short statement to the media that law-enforcement officials received a call at 1:23 p.m. EST reporting that a man was on campus with a firearm, followed by a subsequent call saying that “they had heard shot fired.” When police arrived they found two people dead, she said.Emails were sent just after 2 p.m. to parents of Episcopal High School students telling them to “respond to the normal pick up location” because “the situation is under control. At this time there are no outstanding suspects,” according to a Times-Union news story.Traffic was apparently backed up for blocks along Atlantic Boulevard leading to the school that describes itself as providing “a superior college-preparatory education for students in grades six through twelve within a nurturing Christian atmosphere.”The school has an enrollment of 900 students with 300 in the middle school and 600 in the upper school. Episcopal’s main campus, the Munnerlyn Campus, is situated on 56 acres along the south bank of the St. Johns River in central Jacksonville, according to information on its website. The student-to-teacher ratio is 10 to 1; the average class size is 17. Episcopal employs 90 faculty, all of whom have 4-year degrees or higher; 65 percent have graduate degrees and 3 percent have earned a doctorate. The average teaching tenure for faculty members is 19.75 years.Lauren Baxter, a parent of an Episcopal High School student, told the media that “private school, public school, these things happen. Who knows what the circumstance were,” and added that “this is a very safe school and very wonderful school, and if something happened here, it can happen anywhere.”— The Rev.

The sea front view is amazing and unusual for a private residential project in this area, usually occupied exclusively by resorts and hotels. The idea was to maximize this potential with semi-detached sea front villas and keep a large part of the land as a “buffer” landscaped area to prevent noise from the road.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OKIThe construction is composed of 3 units: Two 3 bedrooms villas, and one 4 bedrooms villa, each with a private 10mX3m swimming pool. The construction was raised to 1.8 meter from the beach level in order to keep a good privacy from the public beach, maximize the sea view and prevent from site erosion.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OKIThe interior layout offers a generous sea view for each space:-       On the ground floor the kitchen, dining and living room are merged in one single space mono-oriented to the beach front while the back has been designed with a patio open to the sky to bring sunlight, natural ventilation and a nice sequence for entrance and staircase with the pond and the interior tropical garden. Master bedrooms are open to the infinity swimming pool and by extension to the sea. In the back, each bathroom has a private garden with Jacuzzi, bringing light, ventilation and strong outdoor/indoor connection.Save this picture!First Floor Plan-       On the first floor, all bedrooms have a large ocean view with floor to ceiling windows recessed in the concrete structure providing enough shadows. On the front, the flat roof becomes a huge timber decking terrace, extending possibilities to contemplate the ocean. In the back, are located the bathrooms, naturally ventilated through timber louvers.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OKIElevations are simple, following the layout strategy. The beach front elevation is widely open with large aluminum frame windows while the back elevation has no windows but timber louvers only. Therefore, in addition to the open air patio on the ground floor, it has been possible to limit the air conditioning to the bedrooms only.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OKIThis amazing location, so closed to the sea, is a dreaming place for living.

Credit: CaltechJohn Sutherland, Emeritus Lord Northcliffe Professor of Modern English Literature, University College London, gave a lecture on Thursday, September 29, as part of a lecture series celebrating the 50th anniversary of Caltech’s Humanities and Social Sciences division. Sutherland, who is known for his successful nonacademic books on literary history, was on the Caltech faculty from 1983 to 1992.In his lecture, titled “George Ellery Hale’s Vision of the Humane Scientist: Has it Survived?” Sutherland talked about the inspirations of astronomer Hale, one of the founders of Caltech and the first director of the Mount Wilson Observatory, near Pasadena. Sutherland said that Hale’s father built elevators for skyscrapers in Chicago, and that this was perhaps young Hale’s “first step to the stars.” He also noted that Hale’s mother had a profound appreciation for poetry and literature, and that these two inheritances likely produced Hale’s vision for a humane scientist.

The performances will also be live-streamed.The Festival in a Van concept is led by a team of theatre professionals and supported by Creative Ireland and the performers are all Limerick based.Festival in a Van is just one part of Éigse Michael Hartnett 2020 whose three day festival begins this Thursday 01 October.Organisers have curated an exciting, live and streaming programme for the festival this year including readings by internationally renowned authors Colum McCann and Donal Ryan, journalists and writers Rachael English and Billy Keane, Limerick novelist Helena Close and poets Thomas McCarthy, Sinéad Morrissey, Geraldine Mitchell, John W Sexton, Annemarie Ní Churréain and Dean Browne.In addition, there will be a special reading by the winner of this year’s Michael Hartnett Poetry Award which the organisers are delighted to announce is Eva Bourke from Galway.The award is for her collection Seeing Yellow, published by Dedalus Press.The award will be presented this Thursday, the opening night of Éigse Michael Hartnett, which will be live-streamed and will comply with Covid-19 restrictions for those lucky few who will be attending.In their citation, this year’s judges described Seeing Yellow as ‘stunning’ and ‘one of the most satisfyingly assembled collections of recent times’.“Poems ranging widely in tone and theme, in shape and colour, come together subtly and seamlessly to form one wide, deep, smoothly flowing river,” said the judges, poets Thomas McCarthy and Geraldine Mitchell.“Here, in poem after poem, this masterful poet explores the very essence of being, of childhood, of youthful attachment and deep personal loss, in poetry of the most disciplined, considered and discreet verse-craft,” they continued.“Behind these poems is a poet hungry for the world, whose poems are placed firmly in the world,” the citation continued and they praised Eva Bourke for the music, which infuses the collection.”“In an era of brilliant poets and highly ambitious poetry collections, Seeing Yellow claims a unique and noble place for itself: it is a glorious cornet solo heard momentarily, like the voice of Michael Hartnett, above the great orchestra of Irish literary life,” the judges concluded.Responding to the announcement, Eva Bourke said she was delighted. “This is an unexpected honour.”Poetry, she added, bring together emotions, ideas and the physical world. “We can take a sleepy journey on a train, stopping at one little town of fact after another, a poem will wake us and demand of us to get up and off into the unknown world full of everyday things that are touched with magic.”Eva Bourke, who lives in Galway, is a poet and translator. Seeing Yellow is her seventh collection. She translates poetry from English into German and vice versa, and she has published several anthologies and collections in translation.Together with Borbála Farragó she edited the anthology Landing Places. Immigrant Poets in Ireland (Dedalus 2011) and with Vincent Woods Fermata: Writings Inspired by Music (Artisan House 2017). She taught creative Writing in the US and the MA in Writing at NUI Galway. She is a member of Aosdána.Thursday’s prize giving will be live streamed at 7pm and the readings will go online on Facebook and on the Eigse Michael Hartnett website throughout Friday and Saturday.

The form, distribution and anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility of Jurassic dykes in H.U. Sverdrupfjella, Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. Implications for dyke swarm emplacement

first_imgThe Mesozoic dyke swarms of Western Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica, form a minor intrusive component of the Karoo large igneous province. Five-hundred and sixty one dykes were recorded intruding Neoproterozoic gneisses and Middle Jurassic syenite plutons. Ar-40/Ar-39 geochronology data reveal two temporally distinct components: the 178-175 Ma, alkaline. Straumsvola dyke swarm that predominantly intrudes a nepheline syenite pluton; and the 206-204 Ma, tholeiitic, Jutulrora dyke swarm found throughout the study area. The Straumsvola swarm exhibits highly variably dyke trends that display a restricted opening direction, interpreted to be the result of high magma pressure equal to the maximum principal stress. The Jutulrora swarm displays a fan of dyke trends, with dyke thickness and spacing increasing away from the inferred point of fan convergence. Anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility measurements reveal vertical magma transport within both dyke swarms in the Straumsvola area, with the Southern/outer exposures of the Jutulrora swarm exhibiting lateral magma transport. Although associated with a long-lived, local igneous centre comparison of palaeostress estimates for the Straumsvola dyke swarm and contemporaneous dykes in Ahlmannryggen and Vestfjella, indicates the presence of a regional scale radial stress system in western Dronning Maud Land between 178-175 Ma, supporting a mantle plume origin for the Karoo large igneous province.last_img read more
