ENS coverage of that meeting is available here. That proposed draft budget had been finalized in the days prior to the PB&F meeting by Executive Council’s Joint Standing Committee on Finances for Mission, which has been working on the draft for more than a year. ENS coverage of the Executive Council meeting is available here.[Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] Episcopalians across the church are invited to review and comment on the preliminary draft 2016-2018 triennium budget as it is prepared for approval by the Episcopal Church Executive Council in January 2015. From there, Executive Council will present the draft budget to Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget, and Finance (PB&F) in February, which will then prepare a final budget for approval at General Convention next summer.The preliminary draft budget is available here.“In creating this preliminary draft of the budget for 2016-18, the Executive Council Joint Standing Committee on Finances for Mission (FFM) has asked for and received input from leaders all over the church, in a variety of ministry areas,” explained the Rev. Susan Brown Snook of the Diocese of Arizona, a member of Executive Council, and a member of FFM. “We have worked in collaboration with CCABs (commissions, committees, agencies, and boards), with Executive Council, with staff, and with members of the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget, and Finance (PB&F).”Snook continued, “We are releasing this preliminary draft budget three months early because we would like to give people all over the church the opportunity to give us input and feedback. We will review their comments carefully and update our budget proposal in January, before releasing a final draft to PB&F in January.”On the web page, a narrative provides overview information about the document. The preliminary draft budget document and a place to provide comments are prominently displayed on the website.Executive Council member Bishop Mark Hollingsworth of Ohio, who chairs FFM, added, “This preliminary draft of the 2016-2018 triennium budget is the product of a two-year process of very intentional listening. Through structured conversations and surveys that began in the fall of 2012, FFM has endeavored to hear the hopes and concerns of the wider church from staff, CCABs, Executive Council colleagues, and others. In an effort to provide Program, Budget, and Finance Committee with the most beneficial base possible to begin their work at General Convention, we have had representatives of PB&F at each of our meetings throughout the current triennium.”He concluded, “The listening process continues now with the release of this preliminary draft, and we look forward to receiving many thoughtful reflections and responses to it in advance of our January meeting.”“We believe that this proposal is both realistic and visionary, and we have worked to make sure it incorporates the hopes and visions of others,” Snook added. “We hope that our work will provide a solid foundation for PB&F to build on as they create the final budget proposal for General Convention in 2015.”The Episcopal Church 78th General Convention will be held June 25 – July 3 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, UT (Episcopal Diocese of Utah).

As the Preacher’s College closed and left much unused space right next to the Presiding Bishop’s Chair in the Washington Cathedral it is worth consideration. The sale of the New York property should more that take care of renovations at the Preacher’s College buildings to their new use and the moving expense. I also think that the Presiding Bishop would benefit from not living “above the store” so to speak. One needs separation from their work for a few hours a day to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

He had confessed to paying two men to “frighten” the journalist but not to kill him. He admitted asking for help from his cousin Erwin Pérez Liendo, who apparently lent his motorbike to the killers, who have still not been found. Police at the time believed it to be a crime of passion. On 3 June, Pinedo retracted and said that four people close to the Coronel Portillo council in the Pucallpa district were mixed up in the murder. On 8 June it was learned that two new suspects, both council officials, had been charged in connection with the investigation. The first, Roy Gavino Cullqui Saurino, employed by the press and public relations department of the Coronel Portillo mayor’s office, was arrested on 1 June. The second suspect, Martin Ignacio Flores Vásquez, was arrested on 4 June. He works for the municipal water and sewerage company in Coronel Portillo (EMAPACOPSA), the chairman of which is town mayor, Luis Valdez Villacorta. It was further learned that Erwin Pérez Liendo is currently being held and now suspected of hiring the two officials. The journalist’s family said they had been threatened and that some witnesses had been ruled out of the investigation.

News US/UK : Julian Assange’s extradition hearing marred by barriers to open justice United KingdomUnited StatesEurope – Central AsiaAmericas ImprisonedFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment Extradition proceedings against Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange are set to conclude on 4 January, when District Judge Vanessa Baraitser is due to give her decision in a 10 am hearing at London’s Central Criminal Court (the Old Bailey). This follows a week of proceedings in February 2020 at the Woolwich Crown Court, during which legal arguments were presented, and four weeks of proceedings at the Old Bailey in September, when witness testimony was heard.“The case against Julian Assange is outrageous. It is clearly politically motivated and intended to make an example of Assange and create a chilling effect on media around the world. If the US government is successful in securing Assange’s extradition and prosecuting him for his contributions to public interest reporting, the same precedent could be applied to any journalist anywhere. The possible implications of this case simply cannot be understated; it is the very future of journalism and press freedom that is at stake,” said RSF’s Director of International Campaigns Rebecca Vincent.RSF will be attempting to monitor the 4 January hearing either remotely or in person. Following the judge’s decision to revoke access for all NGO observers at the start of September’s proceedings at the Old Bailey, the only way RSF could monitor proceedings was to gain physical access to the very few spaces made available in the public gallery of the overflow courtroom each day. RSF was the only NGO to do so, and documented extensive barriers to open justice.Ahead of the 4 January decision, RSF has delivered the final version of its petition of more than 108,000 signatures (between the international and German versions), which closed on 31 December 2020, calling on the UK authorities not to extradite Assange. 10 Downing Street previously refused to accept the petition when RSF attempted to deliver it on 7 September alongside Assange’s partner Stella Moris, and never acknowledged the email submission that followed. This time the petition has been submitted via email to Number 10, the Ministry of Justice, the Home Office, and the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office. RSF has also posted a visual containing the names of all signatories to its home page and across all of its international social media accounts.The US and UK are respectively ranked 45th and 35th in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.Press contact: Rebecca Vincent at [email protected] or +44 7583 137751 (Vincent will be available for interview before and after the 4 January hearing).

The Chief Justice-led bench, taking suo motu cognisance of the conditions of the Old Age Homes functioning in the cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad, was “shocked” by the picture revealed by the Interim Report of the Amicus Curiae. “For, the picture clearly reveals that the fundamental rights of the elderly inmates are being violated, both by the Managers, who are supposed to run the Homes, and certainly by the State Government, who is legally bound to register, to maintain, to inspect, to fund, and to look after the rights of the elderly population”, lamented the division bench of Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan and Justice B Vijaysen Reddy. The bench noted that the OId Age Homes are being run by NGOs. These NGOs are being funded by private donors, or by the payments they receive from the inmates. While some of them run free, without charging the inmates, others are charging Rs.2,000/- to Rs.30,000/- from the inmates. Those Homes which are charging between Rs.6,000/- and Rs,30,000/- have “a modicum of self regulation”, but other Homes which are charging less, are overcrowded, and suffering from lack of in infrastructure. “In “Mother’s Nest OId Age Home”, twenty-four women are packed into three rooms. There is hardly any ventilation; there is hardly any sunlight in the said Home, Even a Home called “The Second Chance: a Home for the Dying and the Destitute” is so packed with cots, that there is insufficient space for free movement of the inmates. Moreover, according to the Reports, there is awful lack of sufficient number of staff to look after the inmates. The lack of staff is clearly reflected in the unhygienic condition of these Homes. In some of the Homes, the window panes are broken, and in others the cupboards are hanging loose, and in some, mattresses are soiled beyond recognition. Furthermore, according to the same Report, but for the Police, the Department of Social Welfare has not inspected the Homes for over six months. According to the Manager of these Homes, the Homes are, in fact, inspected, only once in a year, and many a times the inspection is done at the time of registration”, the bench was informed by amicus curiae Vasudha Nagaraj, who filed the interim report.. The Amicus curiae further conveyed that there is no segregation on the basis of gender. In one of the Homes visited by her, she was horrified to notice that elderly lady, who was bed-stricken, was sleeping in the same room, where there were two active elderly men. The physical safety of the women is a grave concern. Besides, because there is no Helpline, or Hotline Number available, the inmates of the Homes do not have access to the word outside, whereby they can share their plight, their concerns and their interests. Most of the Homes are filled by people, who have been abandoned. or who are destitute, or who are mentally challenged. Such persons are abandoned by the Police, and left at the doors of these Homes. The Court on Monday sought the response of the state on the following aspects: Firstly, with regard to the number of Homes which are registered, or not registered, which are functioning within Hyderabad/Secunderabad/Ranga Reddy District; Secondly, with regard to the funding, that is being released by the Government for the maintenance, upkeep, and for providing the basic necessities and infrastructure in these Homes; Thirdly, with regard to the number of times that these Homes have been inspected by the Officers of the concerned Department. In case, these Homes are not being inspected on a monthly basis, the reason as to why the Government is ignoring the plight of the elderly inmates. The respondent state departments are further directed to immediately create a Helpline, or a Hotline. The Number of the Helpline/Hotline should be publicised through electronic and print media, and it should be made known to the inmates of all the Old Homes which are functioning not only in Hyderabad/ Secunderabad/Ranga Reddy District, but to all the Old Age Homes functioning in other parts of the State. If a complaint is received on the Helpline/Hotline, the same should be attended immediately, both by the Department, and by the concerned Police Station. In case, any action needs to be taken by the Police, with regard to any alleged offence, the Police shall take the action immediately, and the concerned Station House Officer (SHO) shall inform the concerned Superintendent of Police of the District with regard to allegation so made, and with regard to the investigation made, and finally with regard to the outcome of the investigation carried by him/her. The respondents departments were further directed to explore the possibility of seeking the cooperation of the Corporate Sector under the Corporate Social Responsibility so that the Companies can take up and manage, or at least provide the best infrastructure that can be provided to the elderly inmates, keeping in mind their physical and mental needs. Lastly, the bench directed the state to consider the possibility of having Old Homes along with Orphanage Children Homes, Shelter Homes, and other institutions, run under the Juvenile Justice Act, expressing the hope that if children are placed under the guidance and care of elderly people, such an arrangement will create a symbiotic relationship, between the elderly people, who will get a chance to guide the children, and the children who desperately require the guidance from the adults.Click here to download OrderRead OrderNext Story
Lake Street CouncilBy CATHERINE THORBECKE, ABC News(MINNEAPOLIS) — Some $4.5 million has been raised to rebuild the historic and diverse Lake Street area of Minneapolis, after it suffered immense damage amid protests over the killing of George Floyd that have rocked the nation over the past week.Businesses along the 6-mile strip, known for its large Latino and Somali American population, have faced looting and fires that have left every single one “affected in one way or another by this,” Theresa Swaney of the Lake Street Council, a local nonprofit that is spearheading fundraising efforts, told ABC News.“We understand why these protests are happening, and we believe in the need to seek this justice for George Floyd,” she said. “As an organization we’re trying to move forward and support our businesses because that’s our mission.”Swaney said she hasn’t seen anything like this in her memory, but that most of these businesses were already struggling because of the coronavirus pandemic.“I’d say it’s more than a double hit, a triple, quadruple, hit,” she said of dealing with the damage, on top of the financial strains from the pandemic. “People were struggling with COVID, businesses around the country were struggling, and Lake Street was no different.”“A lot of them can’t even reopen now because they’ve been looted; they have no inventory, they have no shelves,” she said. “It’s going to take a lot for them to reopen and be able to serve their communities.”The area was known and beloved in Minneapolis specifically for its diversity, with Swaney saying, “A large number of the businesses on Lake Street are either owned by immigrants or people of color.”“Those are the small mom and pop shops that will have trouble rebuilding and coming back to life after this; that’s really where our funds are dedicated towards — are helping those businesses that spent 10 years saving up and now have nothing,” she said.Swaney said the damage to the area ranged from broken windows to entire buildings being burned down, and many businesses were looted.Swaney said that the offices for their nonprofit have been completely burned. They were all working from home due to coronavirus, but they found out “nothing in our office will survive.”So far, $4.5 million has been donated through their website from approximately 50,000 donors in a week.Swaney said she agrees with those on social media who have been saying that property can be rebuilt while lives — such as Floyd’s — are gone forever.“I don’t think it means that we can’t support the rebuilding of Lake Street as well,” she said. “We also know that it will take money to rebuild the buildings.”“Many of these buildings are 100 years old or more and they served our community because they were affordable to rent, and provided spaces for these minority and POC-owned businesses,” she added.
