He has blessed me with a family that sings and it has been a blessing for us to sing together. When we get together, we sing and it fills my heart with such joy.”Alice Mae Cowart said God has looked beyond her wants and given her what she needs.“God can open doors that have been shut to us,” she said. “And, He can shut doors that we have opened so that they can’t be opened again.”Cowart said that life’s journey is not without trials and tribulations but a family that prays together and sings together will weather life’s storms and find the peace that passes all understanding.“God has richly blessed me and He keeps on blessing me,” she said. “When we sing those old spiritual songs, I’m showered with blessings.” And it was her voice and the voices of her six daughters and son and the grandchildren and ‘the greats” that filled Bethel Church Sunday afternoon.The Cowart Family Choir entered the church singing. One after another they came – the daughters and their children and the son and his family – to take their places in the choir loft of the historic church.Lucille Youngblood, mistress of ceremony, set the tone for the celebration, “Clap your hands; tap your feet; dance like David.” Email the author Latest Stories By The Penny Hoarder The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… And, there was, for a while, singing among the members of the congregation. Then, a member of the congregation said in a soft whisper, but one that wafted through the church, “Let us sit quiet and let the choir sing.”And sing the choir did, pausing only for the Cowart children to share what it means to them to have grown up in a godly home where singing praises to God was as natural as taking the next breath.The oldest daughter said she couldn’t remember the first time she sang.“I was a little bitty girl,” she said. “It has always been a blessing to hear my mother sing. It’s always been a blessing to sing with my sisters and my brother. It’s still a blessing and added to that blessing are our children and grandchildren.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebrationlast_img read more

Opinion: South Africa’s coal-heavy draft IRP is misguided

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Business Day:The minister of energy, Jeff Radebe, published a draft of [South Africa’s] long-awaited new Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) for the power sector last week. Most observers are relieved that the draft does not include expensive nuclear power being forced into a “policy adjusted” plan with potentially disastrous financial and other consequences for SA, as was standard with the drafts produced during the Zuma years.While we should indeed be relieved that some sanity has prevailed in the process, this is not the benchmark against which the IRP should be measured. The test is how it fares in meeting the enormous challenges we face in the electricity sector today.The sector is bankrupt. Long delays and cost overruns in Eskom’s coal-fired power station build programme have resulted in big price increases, consequent reductions in demand and ultimately in Eskom’s liquidity and funding crisis.And, in a perfect storm, the sector is experiencing a fundamental technological disruption, with lower cost and smaller-scale renewable energy and related technologies that are already eating into Eskom’s market share. Many experts now agree that Eskom’s coal-based business model is not viable and will require large bailouts into the future.The draft plan, however, does not burden the reader with these unpleasant realities, which, if recognised, would have resulted in a different outcome. It assumes a continued coal power station build programme and the operation of the older coal stations for the remainder of their full 50-year lives. The result is that the plan has to assume Eskom will be able to recover these soaring costs by raising tariffs a further 39% in real terms by 2021.These numbers simply do not stack up. The plan is not viable — something will have to give.More: Energy plan’s drafters are stuck in a coal hole and have just kept digging Opinion: South Africa’s coal-heavy draft IRP is misguidedlast_img read more

Chargers’ Antonio Gates: It’s ‘challenging’ to settle in smaller role, but thinking of ‘bigger picture’

first_img“It’s challenging when you become accustomed to doing something for so long and doing it at a high level,” Gates said, via ESPN. “But the bigger picture is not what I can do individually. It’s more about the team and what I can do to help us win, and I just need to be ready for that time, whenever it’s called.” Gates, who has been with the team for 15 seasons, was told in the spring he would not be needed in 2018. However, the Chargers’ other tight end, Hunter Henry, tore his ACL in May, which gave Gates another shot. Related News Gates said he has moved on from initially being cut and is trying to stay in the moment. He said he wants to be supportive of his teammates and be 100 percent ready if the Chargers head to Atlanta in February.“It’s in my best interest and my team’s best interest that I continue to stay positive in terms of where we’re trying to go, because at any given moment my number can be called,” Gates said. “And I could be so caught up into things that didn’t happen in previous weeks, or things I thought I could do more or didn’t get a chance to do, and now I’m not focused on the present and I could actually make a play now. I’ve played with guys who are always complaining, complaining and complaining, but with good intentions — obviously they have a point. But when you do that, you start having this negativity and that affects you more than anything.“You start coming here and going about your business the wrong way. You start feeling a certain way about how they’re calling the plays, or the players and the coaches. You start thinking that everybody is against you, but really the big picture is we’re trying to get to a place, and if you can help us get there, you need to do your part. I’ve been in major roles and watched guys in minor roles complain. And I said to myself I never want to be that type of teammate.” Three takeaways from the Chargers’ win over the Steelers “I never wanted to leave — that was the dilemma,” Gates said. “I always knew we had a chance [to win a Super Bowl], which is why I wanted to come back.“Normally when you leave, it’s not on your terms. And for a person that’s been here, done all of this and been through the wars and they didn’t want to let me leave on my own terms — there was a lot of bitterness from that perspective. Like, ‘I can’t make the team? Whoever y’all want, it doesn’t matter, but I want to be here and I can’t get a spot?’ That’s how I felt. I remember what hurt me the most is I really thought we were going to win it this year, and I’ve got to root from afar.” Antonio Gates has made peace with his reduced role with the Chargers.The 38-year-old tight end’s numbers in 2018 don’t stack up to the success he had several years ago (he has 19 catches, 239 receiving yards and two touchdowns this year). However, he’s ok with Keenan Allen, Melvin Gordon, Tyrell Williams and Austin Ekeler taking over the offense if it gets the 9-3 Chargers to the Super Bowl.last_img read more
