Laurel Johnston, program officer for stewardship, “Blessed to Be A Blessing is designed to complement and support a congregation’s annual giving campaign, each of the six contributing writers explores stewardship, giving, gratitude and generosity in connection with the Gospel lection for each Sunday during the month of October through November.”She added, “The series is ideal for those leading stewardship formation, and each week participants can download Blessed to Be a Blessing bulletin inserts as well as a pledge card with a proportional giving chart.”Contributing to the Blessed to Be A Blessing series are: the Rt. Rev. Catharine Waynick, bishop, Diocese of Indianapolis; the Very Rev. Walter B.A Brownridge, dean of the Cathedral Church of St. Andrew, Diocese of Hawaii; Lelanda Lee, member of St. Stephen’s in Longmont, Diocese of Colorado, and a member of Executive Council; Cindy Ruiz, member of St. Elizabeth’s in Fort Worth, Texas, Diocese of Fort Worth; the Rev. Tim Schenck, rector, St. John the Evangelist Hingham, Diocese of Massachusetts; and the Rt. Rev. Michael Curry, bishop, of the Diocese of North Carolina.“The month of October is when most congregations across the country embark on their annual giving campaign,” Johnston said. “The purpose of an annual giving campaign is not only to raise support for the life-giving ministries of the congregation, but to also help members of the faith community explore intentional and proportional giving as a spiritual practice that reflects gratitude for the blessings received.”For more information contact Johnston at [email protected] Rector Smithfield, NC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

The relatively small estate with strict zoning regulations has been in the employer’s property for a long time and is covered with a small summerhouse. The aim was to replace the summerhouse by an open, at-grade level residential house for two persons.

Save this picture!© Bruno KlomfarThe street facade of the building should appear shielded and inconspicuous, but with the entrance of the estate mediates immediately lightness and permeability. The white exterior building colour was chosen to convey the interaction with the plantation and the spacious glazed facade which harmonized with the white-turquoise swimming pool. Finally, the green marble-facing of the enclosure wall mediates a Mediterranean feeling. Save this picture!© Bruno KlomfarThe residential areas are carefully concerted. No solid walls are in the inside of the building and the furniture made of rosewood are free integrated and all around walkable. The internal wall was implementing in exposed concrete to create a contrast to the elegance of the wood.

Elections and social change

first_imgThe current presidential election campaign has certainly differed from any other within memory. First of all, the great energy and creativity shown by tens of thousands of progressive Sanders volunteers, who have raised the funds and done the outreach to propel his campaign forward, have confounded all predictions about the outcome of the primaries — to the point that Sanders is still a contender for the Democratic Party nomination. The struggle may even continue at the convention itself.The objective factor that has propelled the Sanders campaign, especially among workers and youth, is the continuing capitalist economic crisis.On the flip side, the stagnating economy has also provided grist for Donald Trump, who, despite a lifetime of arrogantly flaunting his billionaire credentials, now poses as an anti-establishment outsider as he works his disgruntled audiences into a frenzy of insults and hatred toward immigrants, especially Muslims and Spanish-speaking workers.Trump is a would-be politician hungry for votes. He discounts the immigrants, but he doesn’t openly attack African Americans and has toned down some of his earlier vitriol against women. He leaves it to his followers to openly display the ugly racism and misogyny he incites. Fortunately, his Klan-like rallies have been unmasked by the courageous Black Lives Matter movement, women and others.The capitalist system, which results in an ever-smaller class of super-rich owning and controlling the wealth created by the labor of millions, is what’s behind the deepening inequality that is hurting and angering so many in this country. And the parties that dominate U.S. politics — Democrats and Republicans — are both wedded to capitalism and have always been the political instruments of the capital-owning ruling class.That is the source of the great contradiction facing the Sanders movement. It has coalesced behind a politician who identifies as a “democratic socialist,” which is a step forward, given that no previous candidate of either capitalist party would utter a word about socialism, except to attack it to the hilt. But his campaign takes place within the confines of the capitalist political machine.That said, even a capitalist election can be a barometer of progressive mass sentiment, whether voters reject a war-making president or vote in a person of color. However, a barometer is not an instrument by which to effect change; it only measures change.To really make change happen, you need more than a barometer. You need an instrument of struggle. Take the issue of racism and the suppression of African Americans in this country.After the massive Civil Rights and Black Liberation movements defeated segregation, Black people began entering the electoral arena. Many times, a majority of voters, including some whites as well as people of color, have chosen African Americans to represent them in various public offices, finally reaching as high as the president of the United States. This is certainly a step forward from the days of open segregation in the South and the refusal of the Northern establishment to allow more than a token few Black people into political office.Yet even in cities that have had Black elected officials — like Detroit, Baltimore, Cleveland, Flint and Newark — racism continues and even deepens in housing, jobs, wages, education, rates of police murders and incarceration, etc. These cities struggle just to provide the most basic services, while the banks and real estate interests profit off the people’s misery.Even as political concessions have been made to mass struggles for democratic reform, the obscene gap between rich and poor has widened. That gap also intensifies national oppression, as the poorest are disproportionately people of color. New movements are gaining strength outside the electoral arena — especially the militant movement against police murders.The question is, how can the multinational U.S. working class exert its enormous potential strength and strike out independently of the capitalist parties?Workers World Party admires the enthusiasm and innovative work of the Sanders supporters, who have injected real issues affecting the masses into this campaign. But it also sees the pressing need for a working-class, revolutionary socialist program that will endure after the elections are over, regardless of who wins office. We need a movement to not only reform or soften capitalism, but get rid of it.Socialism is not just capitalism with government controls; it is an entirely opposite social system. It is based on the working class taking power and liberating the means of production from the stranglehold of capitalist ownership, so economic life can be planned to meet human needs, not to profit a few.Monica Moorehead and Lamont Lilly are WWP’s candidates for president and vice president. They are both people of color and workers. They are revolutionary socialists. They bring something different into this campaign: They say that to win class unity in the struggle against the super-rich, the interests of the most oppressed must be brought to the fore. Fighting police violence, racism, sexism and discrimination against immigrants and LGBTQ people is absolutely essential to uniting the working class and the oppressed in the struggle for socialism.WWP is also running candidates in many cities and states. The elections are not going to change the system, but they can be a way to convey a much-needed revolutionary message to the people. And that’s just what the Moorehead-Lilly campaign is doing.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Greek Village construction ahead of schedule

first_imgThe know-it-all’s guide to getting your textbooks Twitter Linkedin ReddIt Twitter printThe cranes and bulldozers that have become part of the landscape around Greek Village will be gone earlier than expected–construction is two weeks ahead of schedule.Phase I of II of the Greek Village was set for completion on July 30, 2017. Despite rain delays last year, crews should be done July 14, said Harold Leeman, Director of TCU Facility planning and construction.Phase I of the Greek Village includes seven houses, which will accommodate 13 sororities and two fraternities.Phase I masterplan for July 2017: SA-1-5, FA-2, SB-1.“The progress is great,” Leeman said. “But in construction anything can happen.”Prentiss Burt, member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter said he appreciates the effort the college is making.“They’re doing a good job and the best they can to make sure we have access to the houses,” Burt said.Danielle Bassetti, a member of Chi Omega, said the progress she had seen is “awesome.”“I’m in a sorority so I feel like we’re really a part of it and it’s a big thing for TCU,” Bassetti said.However, not all students said they liked the designs of the new houses.“I think they could have done better. I don’t like that the houses are all different,” said Matt Thompson, a member Pi Kappa Phi. “I think that you either have to make them all very unique or all the same, because little differences make it look weird, like they were trying to make it look alike but then they ended up not doing that.”In the next and final phase the former houses will be demolished where the four additional houses will go, which will accommodate the ten remaining fraternity chapters, expected to be completed by July 2018.The Fraternity homes that will be constructed from May 2017 until July 2018 are designated: FB-1, FB-2, FA-1 and FA-3.Once phase I and II are completed, the Greek Village will house all 25 of the University’s Greek chapters in one place.Photo courtesy of KSQ Architects.

Security court decides to hold opposition journalist for another month

first_img A state security court in Sanaa decided on 25 June to keep Abdulkarim Al-Khaiwani of the online newspaper Al-Shoura in pre-trial detention for another month. Al-Khaiwani has not appeared in court since being arrested at home on 20 June for supposed links with Shiite rebels operating in the north of the country.One of his lawyers, Khaled Al-Anesi, criticised the interior minister’s refusal to allow anyone but his relatives to visit him. His lawyers have not been able to communicate with him since his arrest. June 28, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Security court decides to hold opposition journalist for another month Reporters Without Borders today condemned the arrest of opposition journalist Abdulkarim al-Khaiwani, in Sanaa yesterday reportedly in connection with alleged links to the Shiite rebellion in the north of the country.Several plain-clothes police officers went to the home of the former editor of the now closed opposition weekly al-Shura and arrested him without a warrant. His wife said that officers dragged him from his bed and took him away barefoot and in his pyjamas. The following day he was placed in preventive detention for one week.The journalist was reportedly questioned about links with individuals facing trial for “terrorist activities”, in detention in Yemen, who are believed to have mentioned his name during interrogation. He was also questioned about an article headlined “the goat that became a pharaoh”, which he planned to publish and which he had discussed with a colleague on the phone.“We urge the Yemeni authorities to urgently release this journalist. No charges have been made against him and it is obvious that he is being put under pressure to stop him giving a voice to Shiite rebels,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.Al-Khaiwani’s lawyer, Khaled al-Anesi, told Reporters Without Borders that the prosecutor had refused all requests for bail even though the journalist had always presented himself whenever he had been summoned in the past.“My client is a well-known figure, who has never sought to escape justice,” he said. “He has been arrested in unacceptable circumstances and has at no time been informed of the reasons for his arrest.”Al-Khaiwani was sentenced to one year in prison in 2005 before being pardoned by President Ali Abdallah Saleh. He had been accused of using his writing to support the rebellion of the Shiite leader Badr Eddin al-Hawthi.

Police violence against journalist during student protests

first_img Organisation RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” News Photo : elnuevoherald.comSlideshow : AFP HondurasAmericas Reporters Without Borders condemns police harassment and violence against journalists amid a wave of protests by students disputing the preliminary results from last weekend’s presidential election.“We call for an end to acts of intimidation and violence against journalists and we urge both the government and the opposition to respect their work,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities must guarantee the safety of journalists and must punish the police officers responsible for so much violence.”The journalists who have been caught in the clashes between police and students in the past few days include La Tribuna photographer Mario Fajardo and Globo TV correspondent Víctoria Aguilar, who lost consciousness as a result of prolonged exposure to teargas.On 22 November, two days before the election, Cesar Obando Flores, a journalist with local radio station Libre Estereo in the northeastern department of Colón, reporting receiving phone calls in which he was told he would be killed if he continued his election coverage.The extreme polarization caused by the election has increased the dangers for journalists. The uncertainty and disputes over the results are continuing to exacerbate the situation and fuel a level of violence not seen since the June 2009 coup d’état.Restoration of the rule of law nonetheless requires administrative transparency and media pluralism, which in turn requires respect for the work of journalists covering major news developments.

Disclosing the Details

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save FHA Mortgage Notice House Resolution 2017-08-23 Joey Pizzolato The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago A new bill could change requirements in the National Housing Act if it succeeds the long road to becoming law. House Resolution 2777—Give Veterans Home Loan Choices Act of 2017, aims to require that a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) mortgage notice to a veteran include information that compares Veteran Affair (VA) loan information along with information about conventional loans and FHA loans. Currently, it is not a requirement under the Informed Consumer Choice disclosure to include information about VA loans.Originally introduced by Representative Marc Veasey (D-Texas) in June, the goal is to help veterans make an informed decision when deciding which route to take when buying a home.“Homeownership is a pillar of the American dream and a goal that should not be out of reach for our nation’s veterans,” said Congressman Marc Veasey. “That is why I am committed to ensuring that the brave men and women who serve our country have access to the benefits they’ve earned and are provided the information they need to make an informed decision when purchasing a home.”The bill currently has 13 co-sponsors, including Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-Hawaii); Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas); Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-Washington D.C.); Sandord Bishop Jr. (D-Georgia); Mark Takano (D-California); Dwight Evans (D-Pennsylvania); Donald Norcross (D-New Jersey); Gene Greene (D-Texas); Kyrsten Sinema (D-Arizona); Raul Grijalva (D-Arizona); Daniel Lipinski (D-Illinois); Norma Torres (D-California); and Eric Swalwell (D-California); and is sponsored by a handful of organizations, such as the Association of the United States Navy, National Military Family Association, Association of the United States Army, Reserve Officer Association, and the Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals (VAREP).As of Wednesday, the bill has referred to the House Armed Services Committee. According to G-II Varrato, the AZ State Director for VAREP and the Chairman of VAREP National Legislative Committee, this bill has been in the works for four years, and is a “multipronged effort.”The first hurdle the bill had to overcome was to require the loan application to ask the potential borrower if he/she has ever served. According to Varrato, that piece of information has been missing from the application since 1944 when the loan was created.“Because of that,” Varrato said, “over 65 percent of the veteran community are disenfranchised—missed out on this loan product.”VAREP succeeded in altering the loan application in 2016; the new application will go live in December of 2018.The second piece of the puzzle, which the Veasey’s bill is currently trying to do, would be to require the side by side comparison.

The Bench of Justices SK Gupta and Shamim Ahmed noted that the plea had been filed with the sole motive of gaining “cheap publicity” without even going through the provisions relating to deprivation of Citizenship. It observed, “Valuable time of this Court, which is functioning in its limited strength, during the period of the pandemic, has been wasted by filing the present writ petition. Intention of the petitioner, in our opinion, is not to espouse the interest of the public, but only of his own self, by gaining publicity. Such conduct is highly condemnable.” It therefore directed the Petitioner to pay a cost of Rs. 25,000/- in favour of the Registrar General, High Court Allahabad within a period of 30 days, which shall be remitted to the HC Advocates’ Association. In February 2016, a FIR was registered against Kumar and others for the offence of sedition and criminal conspiracy, for raising anti national slogans during an event that took place in JNU campus in February that year. A charge sheet in the matter was filed by the Delhi Police last year. The Petitioner herein had submitted that he was constrained to approach the Court as the Central Government did not take any action to terminate Kumar’s Citizenship, despite his raising anti-national slogans. “Kanhaiya Kumar and his associates are supporting the freedom struggle of terrorist groups who are working on the instigation of Pakistan to destabilize the unity and disturb the peace and tranquility of our country,” the Petitioner alleged. He had urged the Court to direct the Government to cancel Kumar’s citizenship under Section 10 (2) of the Indian Citizenship Act, 1955. Section 10 provides for deprivation of citizenship of a citizen of India who is such by naturalisation or by virtue only of Article 5(c) of the Constitution or by registration otherwise than under Article 6 (b) (ii) of the Constitution or Section 5 (1) (a) of the Citizenship Act. Notably, Kanhaiya Kumar does not fall in any of the abovementioned categories of citizenship as he is was born in India. Therefore, he is a citizen of India by virtue of Article 5(a) of Constitution. In view of the above the Court observed thus: “From the perusal of the record, it appears that the learned counsel for the petitioner before filing the present writ petition has neither gone through the provisions of Constitution of India nor The Indian Citizenship Act, 1955. xxx A bare reading of Section 10 of The Indian Citizenship Act, 1955 and the relevant provisions i.e. Article 5 to 11 of Constitution of India contained in Part II of the Constitution of India dealing with the citizenship clearly indicates that the provision for depriving the citizenship can be invoked only against those persons who have become citizen of India by naturalisation or by virtue only of clause (c) of Article 5 of the Constitution of India or by registration otherwise than under clause (b) (ii) of Article 6 of the Constitution of India or clause (a) of sub-section (1) of section 5 of this Act. Such persons shall cease to be citizens of India, if they are deprived of their citizenships by an order of the Central Government under this section. In the present case, admittedly, the Respondent No. 3, Kanhaiya Kumar was born in the territory of India, as such, by virtue of Article 5(a) of Constitution of India, he is a citizen of India.
