The Board of Dallas Theological Seminary has named current vice president for academic affairs, Dr. Mark M. Yarbrough, as the next president.

DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Board of Incorporate Members of Dallas Theological Seminary has named current vice president for academic affairs, Dr. Mark M. Yarbrough, as the sixth president in the institution’s 95-year history.

Dr. Yarbrough, who will assume the presidency on July 1, 2020, will succeed Dr. Mark L. Bailey who announced his retirement last year and will have served 19 years as president and 35 years at the seminary. Dr. Bailey will finish his tenure as president on June 30, 2020, and will continue with the seminary in the role of chancellor.

In response to this new call to ministry, Mark Yarbrough commented on how “God’s faithfulness to this institution has abounded through the tireless service of men and women since its inception.” As a result, “It has been an honor to be a part of this community, and I am humbled by the invitation to serve in this new role.”

One year ago, the Board of Incorporate Members established an eight-person presidential search committee tasked with finding the ideal candidate to lead DTS through its centennial celebration and beyond. As part of this process DTS selected one of the nation’s leading executive recruiting firms, The Dingman Company, to help manage an extensive national and global presidential search. Robert Murchison, chairman of the Board of Incorporate Members, announced that, “While the presidential search committee did a thorough and outstanding job identifying potential candidates and narrowing it down to a few finalists, the board has unanimously and enthusiastically selected Mark M. Yarbrough to lead DTS into the future.” Murchison continued, “The board is thrilled that Mark Yarbrough will be the next president of Dallas Theological Seminary. Once again, the Lord has displayed His faithfulness through the provision of outstanding leadership to advance the mission of the seminary to equip godly servant-leaders for the proclamation of His Word and the building up of the body of Christ worldwide.”

According to David Stevens, board member and chair of the presidential search committee, “God has prepared Mark to be a uniquely qualified leader. The combination of his passion for the Lord, proven organizational leadership, scholarly excellence, and informed cultural engagement will serve him well as the president of DTS. The board is excited to serve with him and see what the Lord will continue do through DTS.”

Dr. Yarbrough has a long history with DTS, first as a student, having earned both his ThM (1996) and PhD (2008) degrees in Bible Exposition at the seminary; and later as a member of the faculty and administration. For the past seven years, he has served as the vice president for academic affairs and academic dean at DTS. Prior to that he was the vice president for communications. In addition to his role as a senior administrator with the seminary, Dr. Yarbrough continues to teach hundreds of students per year as a professor in the Bible Exposition department, where he has been on faculty since 2003. Before coming to DTS in 2001, he served as a vice president and professor of Bible at Dallas Christian College, his undergraduate alma mater.

During his tenure at DTS, Dr. Yarbrough oversaw the creation and execution of the seminary’s online education program, which has become a standard in the market of Christian higher education. He has been instrumental in academic innovation and coordinating partnerships with like-minded ministries and churches like North Point Ministries and Passion City Church in the greater Atlanta area, Christ Chapel Bible Church in Fort Worth, and Fellowship Bible Church in Northwest Arkansas. These partnerships, along with the creation of new degrees and other educational opportunities, have resulted in record enrollment for nearly every semester since 2012. Yet, far more than simply gaining additional students, Dr. Yarbrough is motivated by offering solid biblical-theological training and practical skills necessary to succeed in ministry to as many as possible.

“I have watched God develop the character and competence of a leader in Mark Yarbrough, and I know of no one better qualified to steward the sacred trust of leadership at DTS” said current DTS president Mark Bailey, “I am thrilled to pass the baton to him this coming year.”

Dr. Yarbrough’s twin passions for the local church and theological education have worked in tandem for over twenty-five years. At Centerpoint Church in Mesquite, TX, he serves as an elder and pastoral team member. He has also coauthored and recorded multiple songs/albums and enjoys leading worship. In regard to theological education, he loves the classroom and interacting with students preparing for various ministry endeavors. Dr. Yarbrough has written numerous scholarly and ministry-focused works, including Paul’s Utilization of Preformed Traditions and How to Read the Bible Like a Seminary Professor. In addition to his ministry roles, Dr. Yarbrough is active in the community as well. He currently serves on the board for six different organizations and is a sought-after conference speaker. Dr. Yarbrough is married to Jennifer and together they have four children. You can learn more about him at markyarbrough.org.

As mentioned, Dr. Yarbrough will begin his role as president on July 1, 2020. The presidential inauguration and celebration are scheduled for September 12, 2020, with more information forthcoming. You can learn more at dts.edu/presidentialtransition.

McSally, Booker, and Gillibrand Champion Animal Protection Provisions in Senate Spending Package

When domestic abuse victims seek shelter and safety, they shouldn't have to worry if their beloved pet will be abused if left behind—nor should they have to give them up.”

— U.S. Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ)

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, the U.S. Senate passed two critical animal protection provisions to protect survivors of domestic violence and their pets and urge robust enforcement of federal animal welfare laws. The measures were included as part of the Senate’s multi-Agency spending bill for FY20 and carried strong bipartisan support.

Led by U.S. Sens. Martha McSally (R-AZ) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), the first provision provides $3 million for a new grant program to help domestic violence shelters accommodate companion animals. The program was originally authorized by the Pet and Women Safety (PAWS) Act, which was included in the Farm Bill signed into law in December 2018 and requires annual funding through the congressional appropriations process. The U.S. House included a lesser amount – $2 million in that chamber’s Agriculture Appropriations bill. AWA helped pass the PAWS Act last year, and our effort to secure funding was a logical follow up.

Far too many victims of domestic violence are forced to choose between their own safety and the safety of their pet, with few shelters having the ability to house pets, and the PAWS Act was passed with the aim to address this problem so that more shelters can accommodate pets. Both Sens. McSally and Gillibrand were cosponsors of the PAWS Act in 2018 – Sen. McSally then as a House Member, and Sen. Gillibrand, as a Member of the Senate Agriculture Committee.

"When domestic abuse victims seek shelter and safety, they shouldn't have to worry if their beloved pet will be abused if left behind—nor should they have to give them up,” said U.S. Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ). "That's why I pushed to get funding for the PAWS Act into this bill. Now, shelters can receive funds to accommodate abuse survivors and their companion animals who are truly a part of the family. It is great to see strong bipartisan support for my amendment.”

“We applaud Sens. McSally and Gillibrand for their leadership in funding the PAWS Act to protect domestic violence victims and their pets,” said Holly Gann, Director of Federal Affairs at Animal Wellness Action and the Animal Wellness Foundation. “Pets are a significant source of support, and oftentimes, a family member. No one should ever be forced to choose between their own safety and the safety of their pets.”

The Senate also included a provision led by McSally and U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) that reflects a move toward enhanced and robust enforcement of federal criminal animal welfare laws, including the animal fighting law, Horse Protection Act, and Crush Video law. It requires the Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide a report detailing enforcement activities of these laws and assesses any barriers to enhanced enforcement. This move comes on the heels of language adopted by the Senate in September directing DOJ to make enforcement of federal animal welfare laws a priority and passage of the Parity in Animal Cruelty Enforcement (PACE) Act, championed by Animal Wellness Action, and was also included in the 2018 Farm Bill. The PACE Act upgraded the current federal animal fighting law to clarify that the law applies to the U.S. territories and takes effect in December of this year.

“We’re grateful to both McSally and Senator Cory Booker for championing the effort to ensure strong enforcement of existing animal cruelty statutes, added Gann. “This sends a strong message to animal fighters that the Congress expects the Justice Dept. to prosecute animal abusers to the fullest extent of the law.”

“We are seeing the enactment of strong federal anti-cruelty laws, and we need enforcement if they are to have meaning and to protect animals from malicious cruelty,” said Wayne Pacelle, Founder of Animal Wellness Action.

The U.S. House also took bipartisan action to crackdown on animal fighting and other federal animal welfare crimes, voting by an overwhelming margin of 381 to 50 earlier this year to dedicate $2 million to the effort earlier this year. The effort was led by U.S. Reps. Haley Stevens (D-MI), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Joe Neguse (D-CO), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Ben McAdams (D-UT), Peter King (R-NY), Madeleine Dean (D-PA), Vern Buchanan (R-FL), and Cindy Axne (D-IA).

The Animal Wellness Foundation (Foundation) is a Los Angeles-based private charitable organization with a mission of helping animals by making veterinary care available to everyone with a pet, regardless of economic ability. We organize rescue efforts and medical services for dogs and cats in need and help homeless pets find a loving caregiver. We are advocates for getting veterinarians to the front lines of the animal welfare movement; promoting responsible pet ownership; and vaccinating animals against infectious diseases such as distemper. We also support policies that prevent animal cruelty and that alleviate suffering. We believe helping animals helps us all.

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

DAVIE, FL, USA, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Truth About Lending, residential mortgage specialists, is excited to announce a new series of weekly webinars designed to help educate real estate agents and borrowers about a wide range of different mortgage and homebuying topics.

“I started The Truth About Lending because I want consumers to know the truth about their financial picture up front, so they will know what their true options are,” says Melinda Payan, President at TTAL. “I hope that these webinars will help both realtors and homebuyers navigate through the loan process.”

According to Payan, there are many people who are denied for a mortgage loan who should not be denied and it’s not their fault. “I want to help as many people as I can purchase their dream home or refinance their home so that they are in a better situation,” she says.

Payan believes there is a serious lack of education in the mortgage industry that has led to many unnecessary problems for borrowers. “Why not tell borrowers the truth about their mortgage loan upfront — the good and the bad?” she asks. “Why are so many loan officers sugar coating the loan process? We give you straight answers right from the beginning and tell you the truth about what you’re going to experience, not just what you want to hear so you’ll sign up with us. I’m not just your mortgage broker, I’m your mortgage advisor.”

Payan adds: “Consumers deserve to know the truth about exactly what they’re getting into when applying for a mortgage and how the process will work every step of the way. When borrowers work with me and my team, they will get THE TRUTH ABOUT LENDING and how it pertains to their situation.”

About The Truth About Lending
The Truth About Lending is a residential mortgage broker organization located in Davie, Florida, serving real estate agents and homebuyers throughout South Florida. President Melinda Payan believes that homebuyers deserve to know the truth about the mortgage application process and the guidelines that are used to approve mortgage loan applications. She and her team provide straight answers and put borrowers’ needs first, helping ensure a smooth and hassle-free loan application process.

Melinda started The Truth About Lending after her family faced a difficult time financially and emotionally following the financial crisis and real estate crash of 2008-2009. At the same time that she and her husband were faced with foreclosure on their home and investment properties, her young son was also diagnosed with a serious illness. Having gone through these times has solidified Melinda’s passion for helping other people find their dream home or to refinance their house so that they are in a better situation.

GfK will nurture auto tech innovation in hackathon competition for undergraduates

Student teams will combine marketing, data science as they vie for $5,000 prize

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to GfK AutoMobility, more than half of those who intend to buy a new car say that in-vehicle technology could affect their selection. To give aspiring data scientists and marketer researchers hands-on experience with this fast-growing category, GfK is challenging undergraduate teams to create business plans – from design to marketing – for their own “smart car” innovations.

In the second NextGen Data Science Hackathon Competition, GfK will award a $5,000 grand prize to the team that develops and presents the most convincing plan for a new in-car device or service.

Watch a video about the NextGen Data Science Hackathon Competition

During a 10-day hackathon in March, GfK will give students access to data sets from a variety of sources, encouraging the teams to use these and other insights in creating 5-minute presentations for their ideas. GfK insights experts, as well as marketers and researchers from client companies, will act as mentors and, ultimately, select the winning team.

Interested students should contact marketing@gfk.com

Before the hackathon, students — working individually or in groups – can collect insights to focus their projects and provide background for their final presentations. Undergraduate students in any major can take part in the event, working from any location.

“Smart technology has revolutionized the auto marketplace – from in-car entertainment systems to self-driving vehicles – and we know there is much more to come,” said Tom Neri, Commercial Director at GfK North America and leader of its AutoMobility research team. “The potential for breakthrough innovation is still huge, and we know that the NextGen teams will bring a powerful curiosity and creativity to this category. We also see this as a valuable opportunity to connect today’s product designers and marketers with the next wave of innovative thinkers.”

The NextGen Competition began in 2011 with a focus on traditional research methods and goals. Over the years, the contest has evolved to reflect the changing toolkit and role of market researchers and data scientists. In 2018, GfK made a hackathon the centerpiece of the competition, with a team from the College of Staten Island (City University of New York) taking first place for its innovative development and marketing plan for a new smart speaker.

Partnership is the ultimate legal solution for parents when their children’s needs are not being met.

Each member of the team brings a unique and specialized skill set that, when combined as a whole, has enabled our firm to recover millions of dollars in misplaced educational benefits for clients.”

— Joseph Montgomery

PHILADELPHIA, PA, USA, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — EducationLawyers.com is pleased to announce they are providing parents with passionate legal partners to sue schools and obtain compensation their family deserves.

Based in Philadelphia, PA, EducationLawyers.com is a team of professional and independent practitioners, from Montgomery Law, whose mission is to take on the largest education cases against school districts and to bring justice to students and their families.

“Each member of the team brings a unique and specialized skill set that, when combined as a whole, has enabled our firm to recover millions of dollars in misplaced educational benefits for clients,” says Joseph W. Montgomery, Attorney and Founding Member of EducationLawyers.com. “When we sue schools, we do so because we strongly believe educational institutions have a legal obligation to provide a safe and effective education for all students.”

EducationLawyers.com wants parents to understand that they can sue their children’s schools when they are not happy with the services being provided to their children; especially parents of children with disabilities.

“In many instances, the school district is responsible for the parents’ attorneys’ fees and costs,” states Montgomery. “Parents don’t have to accept ‘no’ as an answer from their school district. In our practice, we have found many parents don’t know their rights in this respect and we want to better educate the public.”

The team at Montgomery Law and EducationLawyers.com can provide parents with a host of legal support and potential outcomes, including:

• Independent evaluations from a neutral evaluator
• Compensatory education (a fund of money that is held for the child and can be used for services and technology that support the child’s educational goals)
• Private school placement in instances where the public school is unable to program for the child
• Extra support and services in school (extra time on tests, counseling, speech services, behavioral service)
• Anti-bullying plans and other specially designed services to ensure a safe and effective education
• IEP Plans (Individualized Education Program) and 504 plans
• Help mitigate disciplinary issues and avoid expulsions when behaviors are a manifestation (result) of the child’s disability
• And so much more!

EducationLawyers.com is offering free consultations to parents who feel as though their educational rights are being violated. Any parent who believes they would benefit from legal support should reach out to a specialized school lawyer immediately, as there are statute of limitations that may impact a case.

“Taking on school districts can certainly be daunting task for any parent,” states Montgomery. “We want parents to know that we fight when others give up. Call on us to be your legal partner and to get the compensation your family deserves. It’s never too soon to start a lawsuit but can often be too late.”

Polish Classical Performance Planned at Scientology Info Center in Downtown Clearwater

Polish pianist, Mr. Andreas Kazmierzack will give a classical piano performance on Saturday, November 3rd at the Scientology Information Center in downtown Clearwater. Refreshments will begin at 6:30pm, concert starts 7pm. Families and friends are welcome

By trade, I am computer programmer, and a Master of Civil Engineering, but my heart is in the music of the piano. It’s very magical.”

— Andreas Kazmierczak, classical pianist

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Sunday November 3rd, Andreas Kazmierczak returns to downtown Clearwater with a classical piano performance at the Scientology Information Center.

The performance includes a selection of music from Chopin, Bach, Beethoven and Mozart. Light refreshments will be served at 6:30pm, and the performance begins at 7:00pm. There is no cost to attend, but seating is limited.

In 2017 Andreas gave 2 performances at the Information Center. His debut performance was for Father’s Day and his second show was for National Piano Month in September 2017. At these events, Kazmierczak performed and narrated from Chopin, a Polish composer, Beethoven and Liszt.

As an immigrant from Poland, and lover of music, Kazmierczak enjoys sharing his heritage through classical music. Kazmierczak has ten years of classical piano training. He studied under Tibor Yusti Von Arth from Austria, a well-known musician and teacher. Mr. Kazmierzack stopped performing at the age of 21 due to extreme stage fright at a piano competition. He credits his ability to now perform in front of audiences with the spiritual counseling he received in Scientology which he says revived his interest and passion for playing the piano.

“By trade, I am computer programmer, and a Master of Civil Engineering, but my heart is in the music of the piano. It’s very magical – and classical music is something that people from all over the world appreciate,” said Kazmierczak.

L. Ron Hubbard, the Founder of Scientology, had a lifelong devotion to music. He played the organ and taught himself to play the saxophone, banjo and harmonica. His musical talent and expertise extended to being a musical director, arranger, performer and composer,” said Amber Skjelset, manager of the Scientology Information Center and event organizer. “Following in this tradition of music and the arts, the Information Center provides a platform for those with musical and artistic ability to showcase their talent. Mr. Hubbard once said, ‘A culture is only as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamed by artists.’”

To attend this concert or to learn more about the Scientology Information Center, please contact Amber at 727-467-6966 or amber@cos.flag.org.

The Scientology Information Center:

The Scientology Information Center, located in the Historic Clearwater Building in downtown Clearwater, opened on July 11, 2015, and currently houses a gallery of audiovisual displays with some 400 videos. The Center is open to all and provides a self-guided tour showing basic Scientology beliefs, Churches around the world, ongoing social programs and the life of L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology's founder. The Center offers tours to the broad public and civic leaders; holds concerts, theatrical performances, and receptions for the community; and opens up the use of its conference room to social, civic and non-profit groups.

Inspirational Speaker Gary Bradt to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LELAND, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — As human beings we thrive on predictability, but when new technology disrupts an industry, how do organizations keep going?

Gary Bradt is an inspirational speaker on change and leadership, helping organizations all over the world build their change resilience muscle by teaching them to prepare and train for change.

“I understand what organizations are going through, no matter the industry, because change impacts everybody,” says Gary. “That's why my passion has been helping people adapt to change faster and better, because change is hard. My passion is to help make it easier.”

We resist change and they resist it for good reason. Gary works with senior executives and their teams at the intersection of people and business to help them understand that change is hard because it's hard.

“Trying to get someone to embrace change is like saying, ‘Hey, hug that porcupine,’” says Gary. “I know it’s not going to be too comfortable, but we still need to hug the porcupine. So I'm going to get you ready to hug that porcupine. I'm going to show you how to train, prepare, build your strength, build your endurance. I want you to feel confident that no matter what gets thrown in your way, you can deal with it. I try to help people prepare and build their strength for endurance for change, not try to get them to love it.”

With a background in clinical psychology, Gary offers insights informed by science and delivered with heart.

“I'm going to use research from positive psychology and whatever else is going to help you,” says Gary. “I've been a business owner myself now for more than 20 years and consulting with senior leaders for 30 years.”

Gary says one of the most effective ways to navigate change is to focus on the things that never change: your values.

“Your values are your compass,” says Gary. “They're going to point you in the right direction, not necessarily an easy direction, but the right direction. And you know what change can do to that? Nothing.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Gary Bradt in an interview with Jim Masters on November 4th at 12pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

If you have any questions for our guest, please call (347) 996-3389.

This contest will be an everything goes kind of competition.”

— Executive Director Larry Upshaw

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Short … Everything. In a nutshell, that's the new Ageless Authors Writing Contest, which opens Friday, November 1 and extends to Saturday, February 1.

The categories of this contest are Short Fiction, Short Essay (Nonfiction) and Short Poetry. Stories for the first two categories are limited to 1,000 words or less. Short Poetry should be 12 lines or less, including haiku. Cash prizes and certificates of merit will be awarded to the winners, and certificates will go to those deemed honorable mention. The entry fee for this contest is $10 per story or poem.

"This contest will be an everything goes kind of competition," says Larry Upshaw, Executive Director of Ageless Authors. "We will accept work that has been published or entered in contests previously. I also see this as an incubator for work our people would like to do but don't feel quite ready. The best example is the person who wants to write a novel or a nonfiction book but doesn't feel prepared to take on such a project. Start with the germ of an idea and write a short story on it or an essay for nonfiction work."

Upshaw says that from idea to story to full-blown book is a common path for writers, especially the senior ones who participate in these contests.

Ageless Authors is the only international writers group whose mission is to encourage and promote life-long writing among senior writers and poets age 65 and older. The winners of the group's writing contests are featured in an anthology of best works. DANG, I Wish I Hadn't Done That is scheduled for release November 10. This book features the winners, honorable mentions and recognized works from the last Ageless Authors Writing Contest.

Early copies of this book are now available for sale on the group's website at agelessauthors.com/bookstore. For a limited time, purchasers of the new book will receive a copy of the first book FREE of charge.

Senior writers and poets who wish to enter this latest contest should go to agelessauthors.com/current-contests/ on or after November 1. Rules and guidelines for the contest will be available there. From that location, entrants can upload one or more entries and a 100-word bio of themselves. They can also pay their entry fee(s) there by credit card.

"The rules for this contest are minimal," says Upshaw. " What we want to see is simply great storytelling with an economical use of words. We are open to any subject matter, any style. Surprise us. We have a great cadre of outstanding judges from all over the world. They are writers, editors, educators, professional people and everyday people. They are all ages, and the only commonality among them is that they love a story well told, and they have the compassion and good judgment to read and evaluate your work and be constructive about it."
