Can it be that there is no one among you wise enough to settle a dispute between the brothers, 6 but brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers? I agree with Timothy Fountain. It is going to take a lot of reaching out in love to those who have been “deposed”, those parishes and entire dioceses who have been forced out/chosen to leave but I seriously doubt that will happen. The places where the Gospel is being proclaimed are the very places that need to be upheld as models for Christians but instead our bishops have “charges” brought against them and we are characterized as being bigots,haters and fundamentalists.

Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Justin Riggin says: July 13, 2012 at 10:02 am Great sermon. We are called into one body but a good dose of the spiritual anti-rejection drug called love, seems to be under prescribed. We need to bring all body parts together and get them working in harmony in order to be the fully formed image of Christ. We have actually made some progress over the past 2000 years, but it’s not enough.Our own body is unfortunately comfortable in its own skin. How painful it is to be a burn patient needing new skin, but the grafting must be done in order for the body to be renewed. The new wine of Christ cannot be put into the old wineskin of comfort. Love is all about risk, it’s all about putting your life on the line for others, it’s all about dying to your old comfortable ways, opening your eyes to the scary path ahead, and taking a bold step.I’m proud of us!Mike Bickel Rector Knoxville, TN Submit a Press Release July 12, 2012 at 2:02 pm It has been suggested the 7 epistles of Christ (Rev2 & 3) are church ages, Upon closer examination it cannot be denied they are parallel in time. In looking to identify the neomanifestations of these types: The Episcopal church over the past decade has shown herself to be a good match for Thyratira…better check on your children! July 21, 2012 at 4:40 pm I like the appeal to love and taking risks. I don’t think that the litigation strategy and the amount of money spent on it, relative to what was spent on stated mission goals, is consistent with the vision of love. It is going to take plenty of the kind of reaching across that she describes in her last two paragraphs in order to overcome the waste and estrangement generated by a policy accepted uncritically by the GC and Executive Council.center_img This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

So proud to be your sister in Christ +KJS and so glad that the Episcopal Church is my heart’s home. Posted Jul 12, 2012 July 22, 2012 at 9:51 am Carol- I couldn’t agree more. The implication that reform is the only path to peace and love is outlandish and largely untrue.The undertone of this sermon suggests that those who stand as advocates of traditional forms of worship and choose not to step onto that invisible bridge that spans the chasm of the unknown remain on the ledge, and are therefore un-loving. It is quite apparent that the voices of traditionalists are not only being suppressed by the church’s leaders, but are also being portrayed as obstructions to the mission of the Gospel. July 23, 2012 at 2:43 pm I am afraid that we are guilty of white washing our own traditions and our own behavior in order to point the accusing finger of judgement at others. We are distressed because we are called to change… to repent… to turn back / re-think. We need to take a close look at what Christ would have us do. Are we Christians or Anglicans or Episcopalians? Are we followers of Jesus or tax collectors or sinners or fornicators or cheaters or liars? We should get used to checking the box “ALL OF THE ABOVE” and thanking God that He puts up with us.Remember that you were bought at a price. Remember that you now owe your life to Christ in order to be part of the body of Christ – and thus, to act like Jesus.The rant going on in this stream reminds me of how many people left the church when we were asked to “pass the peace” and actually touch each other, when we were asked to accept girls as acolytes, when we were asked to accept women as priests and bishops, when were asked to actually participate in the eucharist instead of mostly daily office, when we were asked to change the prayer book and the hymnal. We do a GREAT job of emoting over things that Jesus could not care less about, and yet when it comes to the greatest commandment that Jesus expressed specifically for us to follow, that of actually loving each other – loving your enemy – a sacrificing love that Jesus knew only too well… we just can’t do it. So we cling to the old ways, to the “traditions” that have nothing whatever to do with why our Savior came to earth. The Pharisees did the same thing.We need to reach out touch the corpse, we need to touch the leprosy and touch the pain of the lost sheep in this church and in so doing we may actually heal ourselves! Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Bath, NC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Nancy Muhlheim, Deacon serving the Diocese of Oregon says: [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs] The following sermon was presented today at the 77th General Convention of the Episcopal Church, meeting in Indianapolis, Indianapolis, through July 12.CLOSING EUCHARIST OF GENERAL CONVENTION12 July 2012SoderblomThe Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts SchoriPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal ChurchI have some bad news. PB&F[1 ] asked Gregory Straub [2] to find the latest audit, and when he went looking in the Archives, he discovered that we have been using the wrong edition of the Constitution and Canons all through our deliberations. The general conclusion is that everything we’ve done here is therefore invalid. Are you ready to start over?That’s basically what happened with King Josiah. Hilkiah went to investigate the Temple finances and discovered that they’d been reading the wrong rule book for years and years.We’ve had some struggles here that sound a little bit like that – like whether this body is hierarchical or not, or what kind of governance or structure fits what those guys who held the first Episcopal Church convention had in mind back in 1785.It will take many more Conventions before we all agree about anything, but, you know what? IT DOESN’T MATTER! We won’t all agree before the Second Coming, but there is only one essential rule – “love one another,” says Jesus, “as I have loved you.” That is the one and only rule of life together in Christ. It is the same one that Augustine of Hippo cited: “love God and do as you please.” Martin Luther’s version was, “sin boldly… and more boldly still rejoice in Christ.”Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori preaches July 12 at the closing Eucharist of the 77th General Convention in Indianapolis. ENS photo/Mary Frances SchjonbergOur task is not to timidly take comfort in the details of our nice behavior – not even in impeccable parliamentary procedure! Life in Christ is risky, it’s about leaping into the uncertain choices before us, like Indiana Jones on that light bridge [3 ] – stepping out over the chasm without knowing if the bridge will be there until we do. Way down in the depths, deep down, the body of Christ has an abiding memory of the trustworthiness of that bridge, even if some of the individual members don’t remember quite so well.That’s what Lars Olof Jonathan Söderblom offered the world. The body of Christ, indeed the whole body of all faithful people, has much to teach its members about trust and confidence – and it is all about love.Söderblom – who went by Nathan – was a Swedish Lutheran pastor, theologian, and Archbishop of Uppsala, born in 1866 and died in 1931. He came from a tradition of border crossers, and it was evident even in his early life. His university degree was in Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, and Latin, and he started the formal academic study of comparative religions.[4] In 1890 he came to the United States for a meeting of the Student Missionary Association – something like a General Convention for young adults. He went back to Sweden, was ordained and was appointed chaplain to a mental hospital. Then he started looking for a job that would pay enough to let him get married. Anna Forsell was one of 20 women students among the 1700 men in the University, and she was his writing partner as well as his wife. Söderblom did find a job; he was appointed to the Swedish church in Paris, and stayed there until 1901. That Parisian congregation was filled with Scandinavian artists, diplomats, and merchants, among them Alfred Nobel and August Strindberg, and the several older of the Söderblom’s 13 children.The Church of Sweden started planting churches abroad in 1626, and that church in Paris was the first one. Several of the ones in the American colonies were later transferred to The Episcopal Church.[5] The Church of Sweden has an ancient tradition of ecumenism, loving and learning and working with others.Söderblom went back to Sweden to take an academic post in theology at Uppsala University, and he began a theological revival in the Swedish church that spread about the world. He worked on the easy stuff like world peace and liturgical renewal.Söderblom is remembered most distinctly for starting the modern ecumenical movement, with the Conference on Life and Work in Stockholm in 1925. He insisted that personal spirituality made no sense if it was divorced from work for justice in the larger society, and he repeatedly called on Christian leaders to make common cause for world peace. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1930.Peace begins with loving one another. Start with the people in this room. This body has done a pretty good job over the last few days. We’ve seen quite a few leaps beyond old spheres of safety for the sake of the other. Each person who has stepped out has done so in order to meet another. And we have discovered a new place, a third way beyond what either one knew before.Take what you have learned here about deep hospitality [6] and keep moving toward the other. Maybe we can even figure out how to love everybody in this church. This reconciling work isn’t like BASE jumping [7] – finding a thrill by stretching some rubber band that ties you to the earth. God’s mission is real faith work, the kind of trusting vulnerability that knows there’s only one rule to keep us safe, the spirit’s tether that will draw us into the arms of a Friend on the other side of that chasm. [8]So step on out there past this narrow ledge of safety and love one another. Step out there and expect to find your Friend on the other side. Cross the chasm and you will find the other – and every single one of them will bear the image of God. Trust the wings of the morning, and take a flying leap! Take a flying leap into the future, and toward the other. The bridge is there – we call it the Light of the World.[1] Program, Budget, and Finance – committee that develops the budget[2] The Rev.

The extension to ‘Moonshine’ is an addition to a 1786 castellated Stone building, which has no car access within 400 yards. It is intended as a didactic building in the Smithsonian tradition and is intentionally raw. It was a self-build project, and finally completed in October 2008. Fundamental to the design of the extension was a dialogue and engagement with existing place. Save this picture!Courtesy of mitchell taylor workshopThe low budget (£140,000) project was designed for a family with four young children with components that had to be carried by hand along a woodland path, was a self build with client acting as main contractor, and was completed in six months. Save this picture!Courtesy of mitchell taylor workshopThe ‘served’ areas of the ground floor are transparent, allowing the sense of the site to be read through the building. It was designed with a flexible skin, which is achieved through the use of screens which can be slid back and adjusted depending on sun and wind directions, or usage. The building is made legible through the separation of, and the revealing of, the structure, sinews and skin. This theme that continues throughout the project, with the frame expressed continuously in the envelope, floors and ceilings. This is part of the ongoing narrative in the building of its construction, and a desire for the conception of the building to be plain and comprehensible. Save this picture!Courtesy of mitchell taylor workshopThe intention is that the building avoids the saccharin version of architecture, i.e. slick, clipped, polished, plucked, and waxed. There are no finishes to speak of, and each material is left to read as itself. It could be said that the building is brutal in the anti-aesthetic sense of a truth to materials. Shuttering ply is used for the walls, which also serve to brace the frame. The frame is local green oak, which was the only material available in the section sized required, with stainless steel bolt connections that are expressed externally as a single pin at each structural bay. Save this picture!Proposed ElevationsThe outside of the building is clad in dark grey corrugated sheet – a nod to the local black and grey corrugated Dutch barns in the same valley. The eave projections which thin down at their extremities like the surrounding trees, are a product of the analysis of local weather patterns – the north east ‘high’ side eaves projection creates a sheltered zone that protects the point of arrival from rain and wind – indeed, this side of the building has never got wet – while the south west eaves are a result of the solar protection needed in summer before the point that the sun disappears behind the big ash tree adjacent. Save this picture!Courtesy of mitchell taylor workshopThe extension touches the ground lightly – using small pad footings in only eight positions – allowing the water table to remain unaffected, and minimizing the use of concrete.Save this picture!Proposed SectionsProject gallerySee allShow lessKuwait International Airport / Foster + PartnersArticlesMSA+PMA Architecture’s Winning Proposal for the Regeneration of “Cabuço de Baixo 5”Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  Moonshine / Mitchell Taylor WorkshopSave this projectSaveMoonshine / Mitchell Taylor Workshop Architects: Mitchell Taylor Workshop Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Moonshine / Mitchell Taylor Workshop Projects United Kingdomlast_img read more

It is still too soon to reach any definitive conclusions about what really happened.”Rozvadovsky was stabbed several times in the face and neck at the entrance to the stairway of 168 Kharkovskoye Street in Kiev at around 11 p.m. last night. He died about four hours later in a nearby hospital after losing a lot of blood.The editor of 2000, Mikhail Denisenko, told Reporters Without Borders: “The information so far available to us is extremely limited. Nothing is definitive. The accounts of the various witnesses are contradictory.” Denisenko added that, as far as he knew, Rozvadovsky had not covered any sensitive stories recently and had not received any threats.The police are treating his death as “murder with premeditation” under article 115 of the criminal code and, for the time being, are working on the assumption that it was the result of a personal dispute. A police spokesman, Vladimir Dmitrenko, said that a suspect had already been identified and that, “on the basis of statements taken, there is an 80 per cent probability that the murder is not linked to (Rozvadovsky’s) journalist activity.”According to some accounts, Rozvadovsky did not come alone to the place where he was attacked. Was he accompanied and, if so, by whom? What has happened to this person? The journalist Mustafa Nayem reported on Facebook that, according to one witness, Rozvadovsky’s assailants tried to rob a USB flash drive from him and that the USB flash drive is now in the possession of the police. If so, what has become of it?Rozvadovsky, who used the pseudonym of Vitaly Sichen, was aged 30 and had worked for 2000 for nine years. According to some sources, he also worked for the news agency PHL and sometimes used the pseudonym of Viktor Vedomy as well.

Call for press freedom to be respected in Sunday’s legislative elections and referendum

first_img Reporters Without Borders today urged the authorities to make respect for press freedom a priority in the 25 May legislative elections and referendum, as there were many violations of press freedom in the two rounds of the presidential elections in February and March. The organisation also voiced concern about the closure of local TV station Ankyun+3, which appears to have been politically motivated.”Given the many cases of harassment, intimidation, confiscation and violence against journalists covering the presidential election a few months ago, we have a right to be concerned about the conditions in which the media will be able to work in the coming election,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to the chairman of the central electoral commission, Artak Sahradyan.”We therefore ask you to do everything possible to ensure that the members of the local commissions respect the electoral code and do not obstruct the work of journalists during the 25 May elections,” Ménard said. “We also ask you to intervene so that the TV station Ankyun+3 can resume broadcasting immediately.”On 20 May, the local office of Armenia’s telecommunication centre suspended broadcasting by the local TV station Ankyun+3 in the city of Alarverdi (in the Lori region), claiming that it had failed to respect technical regulations and had not broadcast state programmes. The station’s editor in chief, Hrachya Papinyan, said this forced closure five days before the election was politically motivated, as the station had not supported Hovhannes Qochinyan, a candidate who is the brother of the head of the regional government. A week ago tax inspectors also began examining the station’s accounts.There were many cases of obstruction of news coverage during the two rounds of the presidential election on 19 February and 5 March. Representatives of independent media, including journalists with the independent TV station A1+, were subjected to intimidation and physically attacked while trying to cover voting in polling stations. In most cases, members of local electoral commissions were to blame. Reporters Without Borders points out that no accreditation is needed to cover local polling stations and article 30 of the electoral code bans any limitation on the rights of the news media.

Spatial in a strategic alliance to deliver trade analysis for shopping centers and malls, using precise mobile GPS data from customers’ smartphones, to provide detailed information about retail trade areas.With this kind of analysis, retailers will be able to pinpoint areas with maximum foot traffic – meaning more potential customers – and from there make informed decision on where to focus advertising or actually set up retail distribution areas.Directory of Major Malls, Inc. is considered an industry source for comprehensive retail and data and lists more than 7,200 shopping centers in the U.S. B.I. Spatial is a geospatial business intelligence consultancy which, among other services, identifies “key customer segments, where they are and their sales potential” for retailers.Under the strategic alliance, UberMedia will contribute its proprietary UberRetail program to analyze GPS data from mobile devices that are captured within DMM shopping center locations, accurate to within three meters. Using UberRetail’s data, B. I. Spatial’s systems will produce the likely home locations for the mall or shopping centers’ visitors from which the trade areas are derived.“This is a true strategic effort where UberRetail, DMM and B.I. Spatial have contributed in developing a truly unique product for retailers and businesses to analyze malls and shopping centers,” said Eric Aledort, chief business development officer at UberMedia. “We’re thrilled to work with these innovative companies to capture shopper data and assist retailers in making better, more informed decisions regarding space.”The alliance is expected to assist retailers in finding the right retail space that connects with customers, providing data and technology that will allow them to make the most informed decisions to invest in a site.“In the absence of customer location data, UberRetail’s ability to use GPS location data from mobile devices provides us with the most accurate alternative,” said Andy Moncla, chief operating officer at B. I. Spatial. “Before we partnered with UberRetail, we considered other partners but our need for the GPS precision and the ability to locate actual customers, not their cars, could only be satisfied by this solution.”The location data can be provided in a variety of common formats and are accessible in many widely used programs, including Tableau, Alteryx, ArcGIS and Google Earth. Retailers, including America’s big shopping malls, can then use the trade area data in conjunction with demographic and psychographic data to develop trade area profiles, retail sales forecasting, real estate strategy development, and enhance retailers’ local marketing campaigns.“The immense value of using the device related data UberRetail provides is that it allows us to observe actual consumer behavior,” said Tama Shor, president and CEO of DMM. “Our retail clients now have a method to identify new sites and analyze both their current locations as well as those of competitors or complementary retailers.”For more information, visit Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Business News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Top of the News Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday center_img Subscribe More Cool Stuff Make a comment Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Memories of Maybell and me

first_img Memories of Maybell and me Since he asked, I told him that Maybelle was still hanging around, literally. Her colorful hood, now a backyard ornament, is posted and, from a distance, appears to be a quilt hanging from the clothes line.There are just some things that you can’t let go.Maybelle came into my life in a roundabout way. A friend bought her but her son refused to drive an old, “old-lady’s car. “ Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration You Might Like America means freedom to them A friend of mine can’t for the life of him understand why some Americans are clamoring to replace capitalism with… read more Published 6:26 pm Friday, August 14, 2020 Skip With the exception of a peeling overcoat, the Honda Civic had held its age at 52,000 miles. And, the price was right.The first destination for my “new” car was Relay for Life. It was the month of May – so Maybelle.For a year or so, Maybelle’s original paint job held up. Then, it was apparent she needed a face lift. The price of such doings was not in my budget, thus a home makeover.A co-worker, let’s call her Deedie, and I walked to the hardware and bought several quarts of colorful paint and two brushes. On our lunch hour, we transformed Maybelle from the fringes of clunkerhood into a work of art that would have turned Picasso green with envy.

Maybelle was there in good times and bad times.Around home, we kept the pavement hot. We slipped and slid on muddy roads. We slung gravel and splashed through rain puddles.

Coronavirus updates: UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson released from hospital

first_imgiStock(NEW YORK) — While many countries around the world and cities in the U.S. are pointing toward positive signs that social distancing might be finally flattening the curve, the novel coronavirus death toll continues to be staggering with at least 109,000 deceased.The U.S. is the global leader in the number of cases and deaths. More than 20,602 people in the U.S. have died as a result of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. At least 530,000 people in the U.S. have tested positive.Worldwide, more than 1.78 million people have been diagnosed since the virus emerged in China in December. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.Here are today’s biggest developments:– U.S. close to its peak of disease, FDA commissioner says– US death toll highest in world, cases now over half a million– Global death toll tops 100,000– Kansas Supreme Court strikes down measure allowing in-person Easter church servicesRonald Reynolds, 47, walks out of the Louisiana State Penitentiary on Jan. 29, 2020, after serving 29 years in prison.President Donald Trump speaks about the coronavirus in the James Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House, April 9, 2020, in Washington, as Vice President Mike Pence and Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia listen.Here’s the latest on the developing situation. All times Eastern. 9 a.m.: UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson discharged from hospitalBritish Prime Minister Boris Johnson was discharged from a London hospital on Sunday after spending the last week undergoing treatment for the coronavirus.Johnson, 55, was released from St. Thomas’ Hospital and was planning to travel to his country home, Chequers, in the London suburb of Buckinghamshire, to continue his recovery, a spokesperson said.“On the advice of his medical team, the PM will not be immediately returning to work,” the prime minister’s spokesperson said. “He wishes to thank everybody at St. Thomas’ for the brilliant care he has received. All of his thoughts are with those affected by this illness.”Johnson’s fiancée, Carrie Symonds, took to Twitter to thank well-wishers.“There were times last week that were very dark indeed,” Symonds tweeted. “My heart goes out to all those in similar situations, worried sick about their loved ones.”8:45 a.m.: Trump tweets Easter video calling coronavirus the ‘plague’Calling the coronavirus “the plague,” President Donald Trump wished Christians across the America a happy Easter in a 48-second video posted on Twitter and told them to stay separated and out of churches to help in the battle against the virus.“This Easter will be much different than others because in many cases we’ll be separated physically only from our churches,” Trump said. “We won’t be sitting there next to each other which we’d like to be and soon will be again, but right now we’re keeping separation, we’re getting rid of the plague.”He ended the message by telling Americans we’re “winning the war” and we will soon be “back together in churches right next to each other.”The message is a significant departure from Trump’s prediction back on March 24 that parishioners would “pack churches” by Easter Sunday. Trump later said it was an aspiration, longing to see churches filled by Easter.The United States is close to its peak of the novel coronavirus disease, Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn said on ABC’s This Week.“The models do show that we are very close to the peak. So I think that information is accurate,” Hahn said. “This has been a really fast-moving outbreak, so we really have to take this day by day.”President Donald Trump has pushed to reopen the country as soon as possible — at one point even suggesting Easter as a target — but medical professionals have cautioned against reopening before even the start of May, cautioning that there could be a spike in infections if restrictions are lifted too soon.While he said it’s still too early to name a date, Hahn told This Week co-anchor Martha Raddatz, “We see light at the end of the tunnel.”On Saturday, April 11, 6,743 uniformed members of the NYPD were on sick report which accounts for 18.6% of the department’s uniformed workforce. Currently, 2,318 uniformed members and 471 civilian members tested positive for the coronavirus.This is a decrease of 1% from Friday evening when the NYPD said 7,096 uniformed members were out sick, which was 19.6% of the force.The Kansas Supreme Court said late Saturday night that Gov. Laura Kelly’s executive order that banned religious services of more than 10 people while the coronavirus pandemic is ongoing will remain in place.The Democratic governor filed the lawsuit on Thursday after a Republican-dominated legislative panel overturned her order. Kelly sued and then immediately appealed to the Kansas Supreme Court to decide quickly with Easter Sunday services just hours away.The court held unprecedented electronic oral arguments on Saturday morning, and after listening to arguments, it said the Legislative Coordinating Council lacked the authority to overturn the governor’s executive order.“My top priority has always been the safety and well-being of all Kansans,” Kelly said in a statement. “I know this pandemic is extremely hard for everyone. Each unprecedented action I’ve been forced to make in recent weeks has been taken in close consultation with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, the Kansas Division of Emergency Management, the Attorney General, legislators and key stakeholders. That process will continue. Most other states, at the urging of the White House and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have taken similar steps to protect Americans to slow the spread of COVID-19.”Puerto Rico’s governor has extended an island-wide curfew until May in an effort to stem the spread of COVID-19 on the island.While wearing a face mask and gloves, Gov. Wanda Vazquez announced the lockdown continuation that started on March 15 would be extended until at least May 3.The curfew orders people to stay home from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. and remain there even outside those hours unless they have to buy food or medicine, go to the bank or have an emergency/health-related situation. Violators face a $5,000 fine or a six-month jail term, and police have cited and arrested hundreds. Nonessential business were closed in March.According to Puerto Rico’s health secretary, the peak in cases for the island is not expected until early May. There have been about 7,700 people tested so far with more than 780 confirmed cases. Forty-two people have died on the island from COVID-19. There is a backlog of over 1,300 tests that are pending results. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
