Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Can We be Grateful Now?It has emerged recently that many of the great events we associate with our Irish summer will not take place.No Saturday or Sunday games, no Concerts in large outdoor venues, no Pilgrimages to Knock, no Galway Races, no Summer Festivals, no Agricultural Shows, no Tidy Towns. Probably there will be no holidays abroad and maybe just limited visits to the seaside at home – weather permitting! And possibly no barbers or hairdressers. A bleak picture!This will be the reality of the summer ahead. So how can we make the most of it?Basically, we need to learn to come to terms with it. Though it will not be easy, we have to Accept it as it is. Acceptance frees us to make the most of what we have. It allows us to begin to discover what’s possible, safe and satisfying within the massive limitations imposed as a result of the danger created by the Coronavirus.I would suggest that one of the ways we can begin to do this is to focus positively on what we have right now, rather than moaning about what we haven’t got in our lives going forward. This brings us into what is known as the Gratitude Space.Today the practice Gratitude is being strongly promoted by Mindfulness and by Positive Psychology as the way to healthy living and happiness in difficult circumstances. I believe that it can be very helpful at this time to focus on being grateful, though in reality it is extremely challenging to do so.The Power of GratitudeSo, what is Gratitude? It is an appreciation of what we have and a recognition of what is good in our lives.Gratitude is something ordinary and every-day. However, Gratitude has a depth and a value which we don’t often recognise. We can take so much for granted. If we apply the power of Gratitude to our lives in the present crisis, we can improve our well-being and find greater happiness.The practice of Gratitude brings us into a very positive space where we count our blessings and recognise all that is good around us. This doesn’t mean ignoring all that is difficult in life or the suffering which surrounds us. It can be a real challenge to be in a positive space at the moment. Gratitude can help us to get there.Focusing on what We HaveWhen we focus on what we have now we become aware of opportunities which we didn’t realise we had before?We certainly have a lot of Time, Time to do things we were too busy to do or neglected to do before. We probably have a lot of time to spend with ourselves. From living in a busy crowded world, we can find ourselves thrust into solitude and silence.But maybe this Solitude and Silence gives us a chance to explore the deeper meaning of our lives and get to know ourselves better. We can learn more ways to develop our mental health, strength and well-being. Is this not something for which we can feel a sense of gratitude?Gratitude brings us to focus on what we have. We focus on our gifts, on our assets and on all of the good things in our lives. We can feel Gratitude for the big things of our lives – the people we love, our own talents and interests, our home and our community.We can become grateful even for the little everyday things – a cup of coffee, the song of the bird or the smell of a flower.Oprah Winfrey says, “Be thankful for what you have and you will end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have you will never, ever have enough.”Gratitude PracticesWhy not allow Gratitude to become a mind-set and allow it to punctuate your day?Begin the day with a sense of Gratitude. As the new day begins be grateful for life and for the opportunities which this new day will surely bring. This enables you to begin the day on a positive and optimistic note.Follow the teaching of Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor and Philosopher: “When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love. Each day provides its own gifts.”One of the Mindfulness Gratitude exercises which I teach people comes from an Oxford Professor of Mindfulness, Mark Williams. People who do this exercise on a regular basis find that it brings them great contentment and peace even in tough times.Professor Williams recommends his ten-finger Gratitude Exercise: “Once a day bring to mind ten things for which you are grateful, counting them on your fingers. It is important to get to ten things, even when it becomes increasingly difficult after three or four! This is exactly what the exercise is for – intentionally bringing into awareness the tiny previously, unnoticed, elements of the day.”Towards the end of your day why not try this exercise?Despite living a quite restricted life at the moment it is amazing how much happens in your day. In the midst of great loss, we can still find blessings to count. Feel grateful and you will end your day feeling good about yourself and about life.Some people find a Gratitude Journal helpful. Just write down the ten things for which you feel grateful at the end of your day. Read back over them and you see how good life really is.We teach our children good manners by telling them to say the magic words, “Please” and “Thanks”. Thanks, can certainly be a magic word for us today.Take care of yourselves through being Grateful. NewsGerry Raftery: Can We Be Grateful Now? By Meghann Scully – April 28, 2020 185
Wells Fargo & Company is teaming with several housing organizations to announce the formation of the Cincinnati chapter of the Wells Fargo NeighborhoodLIFT program, an initiative designed to offer $5.2 million from Wells Fargo to improve Cincinnati neighborhoods and increase homeownership in the area.Wells Fargo, NeighborWorks America, The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati, Neighborhood Housing Services of Hamilton, and Cincinnati Mayer John Cranley joined together earlier this week to announce the formation of the new program, which will begin with a two-day free homebuyer event on November 21 and 22 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Downtown Cincinnati.”Making homeownership more affordable and revitalizing our neighborhoods will help make Cincinnati a stronger community,” Cranley said. “This terrific public-private collaboration will make a tremendous difference for families and neighborhoods through sustainable homeownership.”Out of the $5.2 million Wells Fargo is committing to the program, about $4.2 million will go toward down payment assistance grants, which are available to eligible homebuyers designed to help them overcome the barrier of putting forth a sufficient down payment to own a home. To receive a $15,000 down payment assistance grant, a homebuyer must have an annual income that does not exceed 120 percent of the Cincinnati area median income (about $82,000 for a family of four).The prospective homeowner must also meet other criteria to receive the down payment assistance grant, including completing an eight-hour homebuyer education session with The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati or another approved agency. To receive the full amount of the LIFT program grant, the homeowner must commit to live in the home for five years and qualify for a first mortgage. Homeowners may also use the down payment assistance grant to purchase a home that needs improvement by utilizing a new mortgage purchase 203k renovation loan. The down payment assistance program may be combined with other down payment assistance programs.”This innovative collaboration between NeighborWorks America, our network member, The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati, Inc., and Wells Fargo will put more Cincinnati families and individuals on the path to homeownership,” said Corinne Cahill, senior relationship manager of the Midwest Region at NeighborWorks America. “The required housing counseling and education classes, provided by certified professionals, have been shown to help homebuyers achieve successful and sustainable homeownership.”In addition to the money Wells Fargo is putting up for the down payment assistance grants, the bank is offering $500,000 toward the stabilization and improvement of Cincinnati neighborhoods.”Like many communities, Cincinnati neighborhoods were significantly affected by the housing crisis,” said J.R. Huber, area manager with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. “While mortgages are available at relatively low interest rates, many families are unable to buy a home because they struggle with making the down payment. The NeighborhoodLIFT program can help local mortgage-ready homebuyers realize their dreams of owning a home.”Wells Fargo has now committed a total of $220 million to 30 housing markets through its LIFT programs with the addition of Cincinnati’s Neighborhood LIFT program. LIFT programs have helped more than 7,850 homeowners purchase homes since February 2012. Cincinnati is the eight city to receive the program in 2014.”The Home Ownership Center is proud to help families qualify for the Wells Fargo NeighborhoodLIFT program down payment assistance grants,” said Rick Williams, president and chief executive officer of The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati. “This investment will help individuals and families become homeowners, and support our larger community. It’s a smart time for families to invest in homeownership and to be first in line to access the down payment grants, people can register to start working with The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Grant Program Creates Opportunities for Homeownership in Cincinnati Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea Down Payment Assistance Home Ownership LIFT Program Ohio Wells Fargo 2014-10-29 Brian Honea Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Print This Post Subscribe Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Grant Program Creates Opportunities for Homeownership in Cincinnati Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago October 29, 2014 874 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Seasonal and annual change in seawater temperature, salinity, nutrient and chlorophyll a distributions around South Georgia, South Atlantic
Data collected between 1926 and 1990, during the Discovery Investigations and fourteen subsequent cruises, have allowed the description of spatial and temporal variability of temperature, salinity, phosphate, silicate, nitrate and chlorophyll a in the surface waters around the subantarctic island of South Georgia. Measurements made in Antarctic Circumpolar Current water were compared with others made in Weddell Sea water, and profiles from shelf, shelf-slope and oceanic sites were considered separately. In summer, Weddell Sea surface water was significantly colder than that of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (1.66 and 2.59°C, respectively), but no changes of temperature corresponded with bathymetry. There were no systematic differences between the salinity measurements made in Weddell Sea surface water and those in Antarctic Circumpolar Current water; however, oceanic waters were always more saline than those over the shelf-slope and shelf (33.91, 33.89 and 33.86, respectively). Silicate levels correlated well with seawater temperature, and Weddell Sea surface water concentrations were substantially higher than those of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (51 and 25 mmol m−3, respectively, in winter; 29 and 13 mmol m−3 in summer). No such differences were found for phosphate or nitrate, and no systematic differences in any of the nutrient levels were attributable to bathymetry. Although summer chlorophyll a levels appeared to be highest in Antarctic Circumpolar Current water over the shelf and shelf-slope (2.7–3.0 mg m−3), no significant differences were attributable to water-mass or bathymetry. A clear seasonal pattern was evident, with the warmest seawater conditions, minimum nutrient concentrations and highest chlorophyll a levels found between December and March. Phosphate and nitrate were never exhausted: the lowest recorded phosphate concentrations were around 0.6 mmol m−3 and for nitrate 11 mmol m−3. However, low concentrations of silicate (∼ 1.0 mmol m−3) were evident during some summer surveys from the 1920s through to the present day. Average nutrient deficits calculated either between winter and summer mixed-layer concentrations, or between summer mixed-layer and Tmin values, produced similar estimates of carbon fixation for both phosphate and silicate, while nitrate appeared to underestimate carbon production. Phosphate and silicate deficits were considered to be satisfactory predictors of carbon production, which was about 30–40 g C m−2 year−1 in a mixed-layer depth of 50 m. Considerable interannual variability was found, with winter-like conditions prevailing until January on some occasions, and apparent year-to-year variability in the timing and magnitude of nutrient utilisation (especially silicate) by phytoplankton. A relationship was found between sea surface conditions around South Georgia in summer and the preceding winter’s fast-ice duration at the South Orkney Islands, which implied that some of this variability was attributable to large-scale change over the Scotia Sea as a whole, as opposed to local influences.
