Steven Peay, dean and president, will step down from his leadership position on Aug. 31, 2017. Dean Peay has been appointed research professor of homiletics and will remain affiliated with the seminary upon the conclusion of his service as dean and president. Garwood P. Anderson, academic dean and professor of New Testament studies, will assume the position of acting dean, effective Sept. 1. Anderson is well-known to the Nashotah House community due to his many years of dedicated service as a teacher, scholar and previous academic dean.Peay notified the Board, late last week, that he had decided to step down as dean and president, based upon a number of personal factors, including the need to concentrate on full recovery from a recent, non-life-threatening health issue and a desire to facilitate new leadership at the House.“Father Peay has provided extraordinary leadership to the House at a pivotal, and critical, moment in its history,” observed the Rt. Rev. Daniel Martins, chairman of Nashotah House’s Board of Directors. “He has worked tirelessly over the course of the past 2 1/2 years to lead the House through a period of transition and institutional restructuring—and he has done a magnificent job. The board is grateful for his ministry and service in leadership and is pleased that Father Peay will remain affiliated with the seminary in the days ahead.”During his tenure as dean and president, Peay worked closely with the corporate leadership of Nashotah House to implement successfully a new institutional governance structure. He also led a successful effort to ensure the seminary’s accreditation remained in good standing and laid the foundation for the upcoming accreditation process by the Association of Theological Schools, the accrediting entity for seminaries in North America. Moreover, during his term of service, Peay raised more than $7 million for the seminary’s endowment, the single largest fundraising effort in the history of the Nashotah House, and thus moved the institution closer to its goal of ensuring long-term financial viability. He also ensured that the gift of eight Whitechapel bells will ring out over the campus, securing the gifts necessary to build the tower to house them.The board expressed its thanks also to Anderson for agreeing to serve as acting dean. “Dr. Anderson understands well the unique mission, ministry, and Benedictine character of the House and will provide thoughtful and effective leadership during this important time of transition,” noted Bishop Martins. “We appreciate his willingness to take on this important responsibility during at time of ongoing renewal and restructuring of the House’s financial and corporate governance structures.”Founded in 1842, Nashotah House is a recognized seminary for the Episcopal Church, the Anglican Church in North America, the Episcopal Missionary Church, and the North American Lutheran Church, among others. Nashotah House is a recognized center in the United States for High Church theology, discipline, and the ideals of the Oxford Movement.

Jovian plasma sheet density profile from low-frequency radio waves

first_imgBy using planetary radio astronomy (PRA), plasma wave system (PWS), and Magnetometer (MAG) data from Voyager 1 and 2 (V1 and V2), essential features of the nightside Jovian plasma sheet are derived, and the density gradient of the corotating plasma structure in the middle Jovian magnetosphere is calculated. The PRA experiment gives information about the plasma wave polarization. To determine the density profile of the plasma sheet, we have derived the hinge point position of the plasma disc from MAG data and used the low‐frequency cutoffs observed at three frequencies (562 Hz, 1 kHz, and 1.78 kHz) from the PWS experiment. We show that the hinge point position varies with the solar wind ram pressure, and the plasma disc thickness decreases with distance up to about 60 RJ. The average thickness for an isodensity contour corresponding to 1 kHz is 3.29 RJ for V1 and 3.16 RJ for V2.last_img read more
