RNA, Spliced Leader
A historical and cultural entity dispersed across a wide geographical area under the political domination and influence of ancient Rome, bringing to the conquered people the Roman civilization and culture from 753 B.C. to the beginning of the imperial rule under Augustus in 27 B.C. The early city built on seven hills grew to conquer Sicily, Sardinia, Carthage, Gaul, Spain, Britain, Greece, Asia Minor, etc., and extended ultimately from Mesopotamia to the Atlantic. Roman medicine was almost entirely in Greek hands, but Rome, with its superior water system, remains a model of sanitation and hygiene. (From A. Castiglioni, A History of Medicine, 2d ed pp196-99; from F. H. Garrison, An Introduction to the History of Medicine, 4th ed, pp107-120)
Health Care Reform
Innovation and improvement of the health care system by reappraisal, amendment of services, and removal of faults and abuses in providing and distributing health services to patients. It includes a re-alignment of health services and health insurance to maximum demographic elements (the unemployed, indigent, uninsured, elderly, inner cities, rural areas) with reference to coverage, hospitalization, pricing and cost containment, insurers' and employers' costs, pre-existing medical conditions, prescribed drugs, equipment, and services.
Principles, models, and laws that apply to complex interrelationships and interdependencies of sets of linked components which form a functioning whole, a system. Any system may be composed of components which are systems in their own right (sub-systems), such as several organs within an individual organism.

Fruit and vegetable consumption and prevention of cancer: the Black Churches United for Better Health project. (1/47)OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the effects of the Black Churches United for Better Health project on increasing fruit and vegetable consumption among rural African American church members in North Carolina. METHODS: Ten counties comprising 50 churches were pair matched and randomly assigned to either intervention or delayed intervention (no program until after the follow-up survey) conditions. A multicomponent intervention was conducted over approximately 20 months. A total of 2519 adults (77.3% response rate) completed both the baseline and 2-year follow-up interviews. RESULTS: The 2 study groups consumed similar amounts of fruits and vegetables at baseline. AT the 2-year follow-up, the intervention group consumed 0.85 (SE = 0.12) servings more than the delayed intervention group (P < .0001). The largest increases were observed among people 66 years or older (1 serving), those with education beyond high school (0.92 servings), those widowed or divorced (0.96 servings), and those attending church frequently (1.3 servings). The last improvement occurred among those aged 18 to 37 years and those who were single. CONCLUSIONS: The project was a successful model for achieving dietary change among rural African Americans.

Maintaining mammography adherence through telephone counseling in a church-based trial. (2/47)OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the effectiveness of telephone counseling in a church-based mammography promotion intervention trial. METHODS: Thirty churches were randomized to telephone counseling and control conditions; telephone interview data were used in assessing intervention effects on mammography adherence. Separate analyses were conducted for baseline-adherent participants (maintaining adherence) and baseline-nonadherent participants (conversion to adherence). RESULTS: Year 1 follow-up data indicated that the telephone counseling intervention maintained mammography adherence among baseline-adherent participants and reduced the nonadherence rate from 23% to 16%. CONCLUSIONS: Partnerships between the public health and faith communities are potentially effective conduits to promote maintenance of widely endorsed health behaviors such as regular cancer screening.

The paediatrician and the rabbi. (3/47)OBJECTIVES: During recent decades, rabbis in Israel have been playing an increasing role in the consultation of patients or their families on medical issues. The study was performed to determine the attitude of physicians to rabbinical consultation by parents of sick children for purposes of basic medical decision making. DESIGN AND SETTING: A questionnaire was prepared which contained questions regarding physicians' reactions to specific medical situations as well as their demographic data. The study participants included all the available physicians who were employed in the study period at one tertiary medical centre in Israel, which is not associated with any religious organisation. The questionnaire was presented personally to all of the physicians who were available for the study. RESULTS: Between 63% and 77% of the respondents were accepting of rabbinical consultation in regard to medical decisions. Nevertheless, in cases of divergence from accepted medical practice and in emergencies, almost all stated they would take measures to resist the rabbi's advice. This attitude did not correlate with the physician's age, religious status or experience in medicine. CONCLUSIONS: Israeli physicians respect rabbis' suggestions in the area of medical decision making, though they would not let a rabbi's advice interfere with their decisions if they believed the rabbi's opinion went against medical need. In order to prevent an untoward effect of the rabbinical involvement in medicine, rules should be set to establish norms for rabbi-physician collaboration. (+info)
Role of Black churches in health promotion programs: lessons from the Los Angeles Mammography Promotion in Churches Program. (4/47)OBJECTIVES: This article assesses pastor-level factors that affect the successful recruitment and implementation of community-based health promotion programs in Black churches. METHODS: Semistructured interviews with 16 pastors of Black churches were analyzed for content. RESULTS: We found that although the involvement of Black pastors in an array of secular activities makes them open to participate in health programs, their overcommitment to other issues can negatively influence their ability to participate. Second, although Black pastors appreciate being included in and benefiting from health research, minorities' history of being underserved and exploited can lead to suspiciousness and reluctance to participate. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that those interested in developing church-based health programs in the Black community must be attuned to how the same factors can both facilitate and hinder a program's development.

Alternative mental health services: the role of the black church in the South. (5/47)OBJECTIVES: This study determined the extent to which churches in the South were providing mental health and social services to congregations and had established linkages with formal systems of care. METHODS: A computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI) survey was conducted with pastors from 269 Southern churches. RESULTS: Black churches reported providing many more services than did White churches, regardless of urban or rural location. Few links between churches and formal provider systems were found, irrespective of the location--urban or rural--or racial composition of the churches. CONCLUSIONS: Results are discussed in terms of the potential for linking faith communities and formal systems of care, given the centrality of the Black church in historical context. (+info)
Patterns and correlates of contacting clergy for mental disorders in the United States. (6/47)OBJECTIVE: To present nationally representative data on the part played by clergy in providing treatment to people with mental disorders in the United States. DATA SOURCES: The National Comorbidity Survey (NCS), a nationally representative general population survey of 8,098 respondents ages 15-54. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey. DATA COLLECTION: A modified version of the Composite International Diagnostic Interview was used to assess DSM-III-R mental disorders. Reports were obtained on age of onset of disorders, age of first seeking treatment, and treatment in the 12 months before interview with each of six types of professionals (clergy, general medical physicians, psychiatrists, other mental health specialists, human services providers, and alternative treatment providers). PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: One-quarter of those who ever sought treatment for mental disorders did so from a clergy member. Although there has been a decline in this proportion between the 1950s (31.3 percent) and the early 1990s (23.5 percent), the clergy continue to be contacted by higher proportions than psychiatrists (16.7 percent) or general medical doctors (16.7 percent). Nearly one-quarter of those seeking help from clergy in a given year have the most seriously impairing mental disorders. The majority of these people are seen exclusively by the clergy, and not by a physician or mental health professional. CONCLUSIONS: The clergy continue to play a crucial role in the U.S. mental health care delivery system. However, interventions appear to be needed to ensure that clergy members recognize the presence and severity of disorders, deliver therapies of sufficient intensity and quality, and collaborate appropriately with health care professionals.

Research expectations among African American church leaders in the PRAISE! project: a randomized trial guided by community-based participatory research. (7/47)OBJECTIVES: This study sought to examine the expectations and satisfaction of pastors and lay leaders regarding a research partnership in a randomized trial guided by community-based participatory research (CBPR) methods. METHODS: Telephone and self-administered print surveys were administered to 78 pastors and lay leaders. In-depth interviews were conducted with 4 pastors after study completion. RESULTS: The combined survey response rate was 65%. Research expectations included honest and frequent communication, sensitivity to the church environment, interaction as partners, and results provided to the churches. Satisfaction with the research partnership was high, but so was concern about the need for all research teams to establish trust with church partners. CONCLUSIONS: Pastors and lay leaders have high expectations regarding university obligations in research partnerships. An intervention study based on CBPR methods was able to meet most of these expectations. (+info)
Moving beyond attitudinal barriers: understanding African Americans' support for organ and tissue donation. (8/47)PURPOSE: African Americans are disproportionately represented among individuals in need of an organ transplant, due in part to low donation rates in this population. The research literature has focused on attitudinal barriers to donation; however, the current study explores individual experiences and values that contribute to supportive attitudes toward organ and tissue donation. PROCEDURES: Focus group participants were 26 African-American clergymen and 42 African-American parishioners recruited from seven Christian churches in the metro Atlanta area. FINDINGS: Although a large number of participants had previous exposure to organ and tissue donation and transplantation, the majority of these experiences were negative, and participants felt a general fear and lack of knowledge about the process of donation and transplantation. Despite these negative experiences, respondents reported personal values (e.g., the desire to help others and acceptance of group responsibility) and religious values (e.g., the desire to carry out God's will and to have faith in God) that contribute to supportive attitudes toward organ and tissue donation. CONCLUSION: An understanding of supportive attitudes toward donation may help improve the development of effective culturally sensitive intervention messages targeting the African-American religious community with the ultimate goal of increasing the pool of organs available for transplantation.

Clergy house - Wikipedia
Clergy houses are typically owned and maintained by a church, as a benefit to its clergy. The practice exists in many denominations because of the tendency of clergy to be transferred from one church to another at relatively frequent intervals. Catholic clergy houses in particular may be lived in by several priests from a parish. Clergy houses frequently serve as the administrative office of the local parish as well as a residence; they are normally located next to, or at least close to, the church their occupant serves.. Partly because of the general conservationism of churches, many clergy houses are of historic interest or even importance. In the United Kingdom the 14th-century Alfriston Clergy House was the first property to be acquired by the National Trust. It was purchased in a state of near ruin in 1896 for £10, the vicarage having moved elsewhere long before.. In some countries where the clergy houses were often rather grand they have now been sold off by the churches, exchanged for ...

Clergy - OrthodoxWiki
Clergy is the generic term used to describe the formal religious leadership within the Orthodox Christian Church. The term comes from Greek κληρος (a lot, that which is assigned by lot (allotment) or metaphorically, heritage). Clergy in the Orthodox Church are those individuals set aside to perform certain tasks and/or exercise certain authority in the life of the Church. Orthodox clergy take care of the ritual aspects of the religious life of the Church, teach, or otherwise help in spreading Orthodox doctrine and practices. They often deal with life-cycle events such as child birth, baptism, marriage, and death. Clergy work both inside and outside houses of worship, and can be found working in hospitals, nursing homes, missions, armed forces, etc. There is a significant difference between clergy and theologians; clergy have the above-mentioned duties while theologians are scholars of religion and theology and are not necessarily clergy. A layperson can be a theologian. The two fields, of ...

CHILDREN, CHURCHES, AND THE LAW: Massachusetts Proposal To Require Clergy To Report Child Abuse - SOL Reform
At first glance, the news that Massachusetts is considering a bill that would require clergy members to report child abuse might seem shocking. Of all the people in our culture who we would think would be operating in childrens best interests, it would be the clergy. We assume not only that they are protecting children, but also that no law is needed to force them to do so.. But the truth behind the law is less comforting. Reports indicate that a priest who allegedly abused dozens of children in Boston was not relieved of his duties, but rather shifted from church to church. The switch, it is claimed, only gave him in effect a fresh crop of children to abuse.. Furthermore, this is not the only recent story of clergy abuse. In recent months, other clergy and youth ministers, too, have been in the headlines for their seriatim abuse of children under their care. Given these incidents, the Massachusetts law begins to look not shocking, but necessary.. The Churches Own Solutions to Abuse. The ...
Daffey Thoughts: Protestant Clergy Converts to Catholicism...where?
I cant help but feel that the great tidal wave of Clergy converts, inspired by Pope John Paul II, and eased in by a crop of lay apostolates geared at making straight the paths into the Church, is dwindling. No new blood. Most of the significant names are people who seem to be within a singular set, a group, a clique. And no younger folks are coming in to light the way. I hear the same stats over and over (more than a thousand here or there), but given the hundreds of thousands of Protestant clergy around the world, thats not much. There are likely as many priests leaving the Church and embracing Protestantism as clergy becoming Catholic. I knew of several in my own ministry days. Far more in proportion than the Protestant Clergy Ive found since I became Catholic ...

World Twitter: French Revolution
The Civil Constitution of the Clergy, passed on 12 July 1790, turned the remaining clergy into employees of the state. This established an election system for parish priests and bishops and set a pay rate for the clergy. Many Catholics objected to the election system because non-Catholics could participate in the election of their priests and bishops. Eventually, in November 1790, the National Assembly began to require an oath of loyalty to the Civil Constitution from all the members of the clergy.This led to a schism between those clergy who swore the required oath and accepted the new arrangement and those who refused to do so. Overall 54 percent of the clergy nationwide took the oath.Widespread refusal led to legislation against the clergy, forcing them into exile, deporting them forcibly, or executing them as traitors. Pope Pius VI never accepted the Civil Constitution of the Clergy, further isolating the Church in France. During the Reign of Terror, extreme efforts of de-Christianization ...
Clergy Court, Blackburn - Sanderson Borland
As an extension to the Cathedral, Clergy Court provides a new live/work hub to the Cathedral precinct and is thought to be the first English Cathedral cloister to be built in 500 years.. The site to the south of the Cathedral was previously a car park, visually damaging the views across to the monumental building of the Cathedral. Clergy Court brings town centre living back into the heart of the precinct through provision of new living accommodation for the Dean, Canons, Clergy and Organ Scholars as well as office space, conference facilities, a library and refectory with below ground parking. The new facilities are set up to enhance views of the Cathedral, creating a sense of place in the precinct and provide an improved commercial offer to support the Cathedral and enhanced facilities for a multi-faith centre, reflecting the Cathedrals position as a lynchpin of the local community and the spiritual centre of the town..

JT IRREGULARS: Archdiocese of Milwaukee says it wont participate in AG investigation of clergy sex abuse
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee is pushing back against a recently announced attorney general investigation into sexual abuse by Catholic clergy, calling it a display of anti-Catholic bigotry and a violation of the First Amendment. In a letter from the archdioceses attorney, Frank LoCoco of the Milwaukee firm Husch Blackwell, contends Attorney General Josh Kaul doesnt have the authority to investigate the Catholic dioceses of the state and that doing so would go against the U.S. Constitution and state laws. In the letter, LoCoco suggests that the investigation may be motivated by anti-religious sentiments, and that the probe is looking back too far in time. The first-term, Democratic attorney general announced the investigation in April. Led by Kauls Department of Justice, the probe focuses on abuse allegations against clergy and other faith leaders, many of which date back decades and involve religious officials who are now dead. An investigation will be difficult to get underway with the ...
Clergy Morale: The Ups and Downs - Religion Online
Ministry is a people-intensive profession. But ironically, a large number of professional ministers appear to be rather lonely people. A recent study of morale among United Methodist ministers in Minnesota indicates that while almost all enjoy their work and feel satisfied with their professional performance, they are also afflicted with self-doubts and loneliness. Experiencing the same personal crises faced by professionals in all fields, clergy often find themselves with very few shoulders to cry on. The joys go uncelebrated, the pains go unsoothed, the stresses go unresolved. Ultimately, the minister, his or her family, and the congregation probably all suffer.. In the spring of 1985, the Board of Ordained Ministry decided that it was time to take the temperature of Minnesota United Methodist clergy and conduct an informal survey of the 400 pastors under appointment within the state. A simple questionnaire was designed, covering a variety of issues dealing with lifestyles and job ...
Except as related to Social Security Tax, the clear consensus of professional opinion is that Episcopal clergy are almost always employees of their respective churches. Clergy who are employees must therefore file their tax returns as employees according to Revenue Ruling 80-110, and should no longer use Schedule C to report church compensation. They should receive W-2 forms from their church employers. These W-2s will, however, differ from those of lay employees of the church. The chief differences are these: ...

Tillers on Evidence and Inference: 11/08/2009 - 11/15/2009
Daniel Burke, Study: 3 Percent of Women Victims of Clergy Sexual Advances,Ethicsdaily.com (September 11, 2009): More than 3 percent of adult women who attend religious services at least once a month have been victims of clergy sexual misconduct, according to researchers at Baylor University. Put another way: in a congregation of 400 people, seven adult women have been targets of sexual advances by clergy, the study says. In addition, in one of 50 cases, the religious leader was married, according to the report. Four percent of respondents said they knew of a close friend or family member who had experienced a sexual advance by a clergy member in their own congregation, the study says. Baylor researchers said their report is the largest scientific study into clergy sexual misconduct with adults in the U.S. Because many people are familiar with some of the high-profile cases of sexual misconduct, most people assume that it is just a matter of a few charismatic leaders preying on vulnerable ...

Occupy 2.0? Church leaders join movement - CNN Belief Blog
The two groups plan to gather during a national day of action scheduled for January 16, set to coincide with the commemoration of former civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.. But could Wednesdays announcement signify that Occupy is now shifting toward more established forms of influence?. Every successful movement begins with a grievance and turns into an agenda, said Bill Galston, a senior fellow at the Washington-based Brookings Institution.. By linking up with black church leaders, he said, the group can tap into a community with years of experience in social movements.. Since September, activists have gathered to draw attention to corporate greed and the excesses of the so-called 1%, a reference to the nations elite, who protesters say wield disproportionate influence over the rest of the country.. Their message, though popular, has also been criticized for its lack of focus.. But on Wednesday, church leaders outlined a more specific call to lawmakers, asking for a moratorium on ...

Clergy: Preserve faith in humanity - Portland Press Herald
Rabbi Carolyn Braun was exercising at her home in Portland when she saw the inconceivable events of Sept. 11, 2001, flash across the television screen.. Like rabbis around the world, she had been mulling inspirational messages that she might deliver at Temple Beth El during the upcoming High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. She saw one plane crash into the World Trade Center, then another. In a few horrible moments, terrorists from the other side of the globe redefined the focus of her anticipated sermons.. I remember jumping off my NordicTrack and thinking, This is crazy, Braun recalled recently. My first thought wasnt that it was planned. Thats just not how I think. But as I stood there, the sound of rabbis everywhere tearing up their sermons was profound..

Congress finds the following: (1) It has been estimated that more than 1,000,000 people in the United States are living with HIV/AIDS, and approximately 500,000 of them are Black. Blacks are 8 times more likely to have AIDS than their White counterparts. Within the Black community, the subpopulation most disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS is Black men who have sex with men (MSM) with prevalence rates twice those of White MSM. Black women account for the majority of new AIDS cases among women and are 23 times more likely to be living with AIDS than White women and 4 times more likely than Latinas. (2) On October 7-8, 2007, 186 Black clergy, consisting of Baptist, COGIC, Methodist, Protestant, AME, and Pentecostal, together with, medical, policy, and AIDS leaders, were brought together by the National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS (NBLCA), the oldest and largest Black AIDS organization of its kind in America, hosted by Time Warner, Inc., with other foundation support, to participate in ...

Whispers in the Loggia: For Bill Lynn, Hard Time -- Clergy Chief Gets 3-To-6 for Philly Cover-Up
While even Lynns defense conceded that the leadership of the Philadelphia church -- a place once perceived in church circles as a model bastion of ironclad Catholic fidelity -- conducted a sweeping, systemic cover-up of allegations and reassigning of accused clerics that spanned generations, the monsignor and his lawyers asserted that, as Secretary for Clergy from 1992-2004, the defendant was a third-tier functionary who sought to do the good he could within the parameters of a policy established by the auxiliary bishops who served in turn as vicar-general and, ultimately, the then-archbishop, Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, whose death in January came one day after he was ruled fit to testify at the trial. (A videotaped deposition of the cardinal by lawyers from both sides, recorded at his seminary apartment weeks before his death at 88, was not shown during the proceedings ...

Dr. Gary A. Colboch | Observer Newspaper Online
The following quote was found in the 1996 Sept./Oct. issue of the Saturday Evening Post, In 1992, layperson Jerry Frear, Jr., was brainstorming with church colleagues about how they might be of help to their minister when he glanced at a calendar and noticed that it was almost Groundhog Day. I thought, if they have a day for groundhogs, there ought to be a day for the 375,000 clergy people in America, Frear says. So…for the last seven years the second Sunday in October has been set aside to show appreciation for our clergy. Focus on the Family is credited with building on, expanding, and popularizing pastor appreciation week, by calling October Clergy Appreciation Month. Hallmark saw a market and wanted in on the action and the first Pastor Appreciation greeting cards were sold in 2002. Those who only observe a minister from a distance may feel his job is an easy one. Too often, people misconstrue that a pastor works one day per week, studies only one Book and mooches off generous ...

Sexist, Homophobic Representatives of The Black Church Just Want to Make Black America Great Again | Religion Dispatches
Alright, alright, sounds pretty on the level so far.. The letter then moves to its first bullet point, addressing the lack of education and employment opportunities for black men. Young black men do face a higher unemployment rate when compared to black women and white men, and the letters demand that Clinton move beyond making appearances at black churches into actually creating a black policy agenda is fair.. Then the letter takes a hard right turn and starts tumbling precipitously downhill. It becomes obvious that expressed concerns about poverty and violence are just a vehicle for the groups true aims: taking away rights from groups differently marginalized from themselves.. The clergy who have signed on to the letter criticize Clinton for comments she made in a 2015 speech concerning the right of women everywhere to reproductive healthcare and safe childbirth. According to these clergy, such a right violates their religious freedom and is reminiscent of totalitarianism. They continue ...
