In the foreground, the Rev. Dr. Colin Kelly, Rio Grande deputy, foreground, checks his iPad. ENS photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis, Indiana] The Episcopal Church’s Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance will build its proposed 2013-2015 budget on the template of an alternative budget recently proposed by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori.Committee members said in their discussion and vote during their first meeting here on the morning of July 4 that they were choosing the “template” of the presiding bishop’s budget proposal, and not necessarily its figures.PBF issued a statement later in the day saying the budget was chosen because “it provides a clear missionary framework for budgeting and is based on updated information regarding income” and that the decision came “without commitment to any of the specific line items” in the budget.The alternative budget has a different structure than the draft proposed budget approved in January by the church’s Executive Council and given to PBF as required by church canon (in Canon I.4.6) and the General Convention’s Joint Rules (in II.10 10 (a)). It is structured around the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission, which the General Convention endorsed in 2009 (via Resolution D027) and said the church’s 2013-2015 budget ought to center on the marks as “strategic priorities.”The Rev. Douglas Sparks, deputy from Minnesota, moved that the committee adopt the structure of the presiding bishop’s budget “without supporting any monies and any line items” in the proposal.But, cautioned Diocese of Maine Bishop Steve Lane, PBF vice chair, “when the template comes, it’s not going to be full of zeroes; it’s going to have line items in it and then you are going to decide about those.”“We’re not picking a budget, we’re picking a starting point,” said PBF member Steve Smith, a deputy from Vermont.However, the Rev. Canon Mally Lloyd, Massachusetts deputy, called for the template to be zeroed out because using the numbers from either budget “gives too much weight to that particular budget.”Lane said zeroing out the numbers in each line item or either budget would greatly increase the work of the committee’s subsections that will work in detail on different sections of the budget “rather than looking at it and making adjustments.”Sparks and others began referring to the template as the Five Marks of Mission budget during their debate.  And, because the presiding bishop’s decision to propose an alternative budget met with some objections, committee member William Fleener, deputy from Western  Michigan, encouraged his colleagues to “deflect some of the baggage that goes along with it” by referring to the budget as the Five Marks of Mission.Committee member and Diocese of San Diego Bishop Jim Mathes said that by using the template the committee would provide a platform for describing the work of the Episcopal Church. He said “we need to be able to tell the story” in dioceses of “why we should take these precious resources [out of a diocese] and put them to work here” in a church-wide budget.The Rev. David Ota, a California deputy who chairs the PBF section on program expenses, called it a “bad precedent” to begin with a budget other than the one Executive Council proposed. He said the alternative proposed by the presiding bishop “gives too much emphasis to the staff and to the presiding bishop and disregards all the work Executive Council did. And the presiding bishop was the chair of Executive Council.”He called on PBF members to decide what would be included in the budget and then reorganize their decisions into the Five Marks of Mission framework of the presiding bishop’s budget.“I’m concerned we’re letting too much baggage and lack of trust and the way this church has unfortunately been operated for a number of years to come into this process,” Oklahoma Bishop Ed Konieczny told his PBF colleagues. “We as a committee have an opportunity to set a different tone with the way we are going to do business.”“Let’s forget about how we go those numbers. Let’s stop being distrustful of each other, that there’s some hidden agenda that somebody’s trying to take over the church, and let’s get down to the work of figuring out how we are going to be the church going into the future that’s about the mission of Jesus Christ, and not about a bunch of political garbage.”Funding and coordinating campus ministry on church-wide level is “an important symbol” of the church’s support of young people, Jean Pierre Seguin, president of the student vestry at Canterbury House in Ann Arbor, Michigan, said July 4 during a Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance hearing. ENS photo/Mary Frances SchjonbergLater on July 4 the committee held hearings aimed at listening to members of the church discuss how the Five Marks of Mission apply to the programs they support. Many witnesses advocated the church investing in Christian formation and youth and young adult ministry.“If we don’t support formation, there will be nobody left to have these other five goals of the budget because we have to form the people in our church,” Beth Ferguson, an alternate deputy from Utah, told the committee.The Rev. Megan Castellan, Arizona deputy and a campus chaplain with the Northern Arizona University Canterbury Fellowship, told the committee that her ministry came as a result of the church’s investment in youth and young adult ministry.“I’m 28 years old and I have been a priest for four years. That’s because a generation ago the Episcopal Church thought it necessary to have church-wide programs for people who were young adults,” she said.Castellan said she works with young people every day “who daily are told by their peers that there’s something wrong with them because they go to church, or they are told by their peers that they are not Christian enough, that they’re going to hell, that they don’t hate the right people.”“The gospel that we bring as Episcopalians, the Jesus that we know— the God that we know —  that loves everyone unconditionally and that will never let them go is something that this generation is crying out for,” she said. “Every penny that we take away from this mission field is a penny that could give a young person the hope that they need to carry on.”On July 6 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. PBF will hold a hearing on funding the 2013-2015 budget and at the same time on July 7 the committee will hold its third and final hearing on the spending side of the budget. Both hearings are scheduled to be held in the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown.The committee is scheduled to present its proposed budget July 10 to a joint session of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies in the deputies’ hall. Lane told the committee early in the day that because the budget document must be to the printer by 3:00 p.m. local time July 9 at the latest, the committee will have its 2013-2015 proposed budget finished by noon that day.A vote in each house is set for July 12, the last day of convention. The budget takes effect Jan. 1, 2013.— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Zac Guildford selected for All Black end of year tour

first_imgThursday Oct 22, 2009 Zac Guildford selected for All Black end of year tour As predicted by many, Hawkes Bay flyer Zac Guildford has been selected for the All Blacks for their end of year tour of Japan and Europe.Guildford, who’s just 20, came to prominence in the Junior World Championship, scoring two tries in their 44-28 win over England in the final. The occasion was marred by tragedy though, as Guildford’s father, Rob, suffered a heart attack in the stands.His selection for the All Blacks this week has been reward for his stellar performances in the past few seasons, but he’s experiencing mixed emotions as it’s so soon after the passing of his biggest fan.“It’s a pretty emotional time because this is the one thing I really wanted to achieve for my dad,” Guildford said after learning he had made the All Blacks squad. “Since his passing I’ve been a lot hungrier and just wanting to do all the right things. He knew it was my dream and I promised him over in Tokyo that I would make the All Blacks,” he said.Few are surprised by Guildfords call up for the tour of Australia, Wales, Italy, England, France, and the Barbarians. He is the Air New Zealand Cup’s leading try scorer with 13 and has played a huge part in the Magpies’ successful season so far.New Zealand coach Graeme Henry has likened him to the great John Kirwan.“What’s impressed me about Zac, apart from his ability to score, is he’s got a great nose for a try,” said Henry. “He reminds me of John Kirwan in many ways. He gets on the shoulders of players and gets that final pass to score. He sniffs out tries very well.”Talking about how his dad would feel when hearing the news of his selection:”Oh, he’d be over the moon. I know that it was his dream for me to make the All Blacks. He didn’t do it himself, so I think he’d be really proud,” Guildford says.In a bizarre twist of fate, he could be making his debut in the same place that he won the JWC, but lost his father – Tokyo.“It’d be a little bit emotional, going back to Japan … but it’s a dream to wear the black jersey for just about any kid in New Zealand, and for it to happen to me, you know, it’d just be a very special occasion,” he said.Guildford’s mother is extremely proud of the young man and how he’s dealt with it all.“Rob always knew in his heart that one day Zachary would become an All Black,” says Debbie Guildford.“Zac’s a very strong young man and I think it would be in some ways an honour – in memory of his father – to be able to run out there in the black jersey,” she said. :: Related Posts :: New Zealand u20’s beat England u20’s to win the Junior World Championship Ireland u20’s challenge the Haka – Junior World Championship 2009 Time: 01:39ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

This residence’s occupancy program has been fragmented into four pavilions, according to an organic plan, freeing a central space that looks completely outward.  A little like the “heart of a village”, this space links the other building bodies, geometrically distinct from each other. Save this picture!© James BrittainThis architectural composition arises more from the special topography of the site than from a formal preconception. The site’s gentle slope therefore favoured “tiered” development, offering a constant influx of light to all spaces. Save this picture!© James BrittainThe most southerly pavilion contains the living room, the more social spaces of the residence, and opens generously to the outdoors so as to offer a greater energy gain during the winter. The volume is open, with very little programmatic hierarchy. It essentially combines the functions related to meal preparation in all the aspects that bring people together: not a kitchen/living room/dining room but rather a versatile space for convivially receiving guests. Save this picture!© James BrittainThe other wings, more dedicated to sleeping areas, leave room for generous water spaces for bodily relaxation. One of these wings includes the owners’ private areas, while the guest rooms are laid out in the other. Dry and wet saunas and big showers punctuate the spaces of these volumes and give the premises a “lived-in” look and feel. Outside, the traditional swimming pool has been replaced with a small coldwater pond that complements the sequence of saunas and steam baths of these pavilions. Save this picture!© James BrittainOne last volume, accommodating work places on two levels, is located away from the home’s living areas, separated by a protective outdoor space. This volume stands out for its somewhat symmetrical form, with a peaked roof, and is positioned upstream from the rest of the building to play the role of “guest wing” for visitors who sometimes come for business. Finally, the lower floor accommodates a work zone, a maintenance and do-it-yourself workshop. Save this picture!© James BrittainThe workmanship of each pavilion creates a heterogeneous whole, in light of the design approach that left room for “found material” (both for cladding and carpentry) instead of a rigid esthetic diktat. Ultimately, this is an earth-rooted architecture, produced with a completely different “design time”. The form emerges from the soil, but also from history, from a patient search for material that is “already there”. Its organic nature refers to our rural traditions rather than modernist canons calling for novelty at any price.Save this picture!© James BrittainSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!PlanProduct Description: This project’s materials were largely recycled: the interior and exterior wall claddings come from an abandoned sawmill, and the paving stones were recovered from an old quarry.

Fascists overwhelmed in Portland, Ore.

first_imgPortland activists, June 4.Portland, Ore., June 4 — Over 1,500 anti-fascist protesters surrounded a racist, white supremacist rally in downtown Portland today, only a week and change after the MAX train murders took place. The whole city is still in an uproar over the ugly incident on May 26 where a known white supremacist screamed racial slurs at young Muslim women and then killed the two men and seriously injured another with a knife when they defended the Muslim women.Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, 23, and Ricky John Best, 53, were killed by the racist. Micah David-Cole Fletcher suffered serious knife wounds but is recovering.Out-of-state fascists rallying downtown today with a federal permit only added insult to injury.It comes as no surprise that 1,500 anti-fascists thronged around the rally and drowned out the meager jumble of no more than 100 police-protected fascists. The counterprotest was attended by labor unions with loudspeakers. Union members led chants such as “Muslim rights, union rights. Same struggle, same fight. Workers of the world unite.”The sizable Rose City Antifa sang, “Build a bonfire, build a bonfire/Put the fascists right on top./Put the coppers in the middle,/And we’ll burn the fucking lot” to the tune of “Oh My Darling, Clementine.”After breaking up some fascist infighting, the city, state and U.S. Department of Homeland Security police lined up in riot gear facing the anti-fascists. Police distributed their forces along the massive assemblage on the north side of the square, as the anti-fascists on the west side of the square swelled and took the street. The masses kept the pressure on and made the message loud and clear both in word and deed: Fascists are not welcome here.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Colombian court rules restrictions on foreign press unconstitutional

first_img RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America November 27, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Colombian court rules restrictions on foreign press unconstitutional On 26 November, Colombia’s constitutional court ruled that several provisions in a presidential decree of 10 September creating “special rehabilitation and consolidation zones” were unconstitutional.The provisions faulted by the court included one requiring foreign journalists or Colombian journalists working for international news media to obtain permission from the interior ministry in order to visit these zones. The court ruled that, “no journalist, Colombian or foreign, is obliged to request an authorisation of this nature because it violates press and news freedom, which is guaranteed by the constitution.”The court said it was also unconstitutional to give judicial police powers to the army and empower the army to carry out a census of the population in these zones.In a letter to President Alvaro Uribe on 18 September, Reporters Without Borders had voiced its concern about the authorization given to the army to carry out arrests and searches and tap telephones, and about the impact this would have on the confidentiality of press sources. The organization had warned that the application of these measures to journalists would jeopardise the neutrality of the press.The court also faulted a presidential decree of 21 September creating two special zones grouping 29 districts in the north of the country. According to the court, a legislative decree signed by all the ministers in the government would be required to create such zones.______________________________________10.28.2002 – Journalists barred from army-controlled areas without special permitReporters Without Borders today condemned a 24 October ban by the Colombian government on foreign journalists going without a permit into army-controlled areas set up last 12 August under the state of emergency to combat armed groups in the country.The measure was an unjustified curb on freedom of movement contravening article 13 of the Inter-American Convention on Human Rights because journalists would have to wait for the permits to be issued, the organisation said. It called it was a step backwards by the Colombian government, which had promised on 16 September to give all foreign journalists in the country laissez-passers that were permanent or at least valid for several months. The new permits will be issued for limited periods or specific assignments.Presidential press chief Ricardo Galán said the permits would be granted, only to properly accredited journalists, by the interior ministry, which would inform provincial governors and other relevant authorities that the journalists would be travelling. He stressed the danger of the media going to such areas. The measure will also apply to Colombian journalists working for foreign media.

Regime uses US threats as pretext to step up press freedom violations

first_img Receive email alerts News Follow the news on Iran to go further RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today voiced concern over a press crackdown in Iran that has included the temporary closure of a daily newspaper, a travel ban on a journalist, the censoring of a letter by parliamentarians criticising Ayatollah Khamenei’s policies and the issuing of summonses to journalists.”Using the pretext of supposed American threats, the regime has clearly opted domestically to crack down on the news media, instead of developing and encouraging more freedom and democratising society,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said, noting that eight journalists are currently imprisoned in Iran.The daily Kayhan, the main mouthpiece of Islamist radicals, did not appear on the stands today. A one-day closure was imposed on the newspaper a few days ago by Said Mortazavi, the new Tehran prosecutor, for likening the mainly reformist parliamentarians to “cows.” The Kayhan press group, which produces dozens of conservative publications, is controlled by the Supreme Guide, Ayatollah Khamenei, and has ties with the security services.Mohsen Sazgara, the editor of the reformist daily Jameh (which has been closed down), was banned from travelling outside of the country on 3 June. “Airport officials confiscated my passport and told me I couldn’t leave Iran,” he told Agence France-Presse. The day before, he was summoned to the security ministry and was told that the Supreme Council for National Security recently adopted a regulation banning certain senior figures from talking to the foreign media in Farsi. The travel ban appears to be a punishment for his giving interviews to foreign radio stations.A journalist with the (closed) daily Fath, Emadoldin Baghi, who was released from detention on 6 February, was also summoned and told about this decision. The Iranian authorities have always shown concern when certain journalists have given interviews to radio stations in Farsi criticising the regime.The Supreme Council for National Security, which is headed by President Mohammad Khatami, banned the news media at the end of last month from publishing a critical letter signed by more than 100 reformist parliamentarians. Addressed to the Supreme Guide, the letter urged him to stop resisting reforms to avoid endangering the Islamic Republic. It said: ” Most of the people are discontented or disillusioned, most of the intellectuals are silent or emigrate and all the financial reserves are fleeing the country, which is encircled by foreign forces.” No Iranian newspaper has published the letter, which was issued on 24 May. It was posted for a few hours on the reformist website Rouydad and the website of the student news agency ISNA. Now it is only available on Farsi-language websites based outside the country.Ten journalists (for the most part cinema specialists) have been summoned in recent weeks for questioning by Adareh Amaken, a department of the Tehran police thought to be linked with the intelligence services.

High-resolution in situ observations of electron precipitation-causing EMIC waves

first_imgElectromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves are thought to be important drivers of energetic electron losses from the outer radiation belt through precipitation into the atmosphere. While the theoretical possibility of pitch angle scattering-driven losses from these waves has been recognized for more than four decades, there have been limited experimental precipitation observations to support this concept. We have combined satellite-based observations of the characteristics of EMIC waves, with satellite and ground-based observations of the EMIC-induced electron precipitation. In a detailed case study, supplemented by an additional four examples, we are able to constrain for the first time the location, size, and energy range of EMIC-induced electron precipitation inferred from coincident precipitation data and relate them to the EMIC wave frequency, wave power, and ion band of the wave as measured in situ by the Van Allen Probes. These observations will better constrain modeling into the importance of EMIC wave-particle interactions.last_img read more
