Durante la reunión del Consejo, otros miembros se refirieron jocosamente al comité como el que tenía la mejor vista de entre todos los comités, la mayoría de los cuales se reunieron en salones sin ventanas. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – San Juan, Puerto Rico] El Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal pasó tres días en una histórica reunión aquí que se caracterizó por una distendida convivencia, durante la cual los miembros pusieron los ojos en la próxima Convención General, a celebrarse de aquí a un año.Esta era la primera vez, desde febrero de 2008, que el Consejo se reunía en una diócesis de la IX Provincia y se cree que era su primera reunión en Puerto Rico. El obispo primado Michael Curry dijo, durante una conferencia de prensa al término de la reunión el 11 de junio, que era importante para el Consejo haber venido a este territorio de EE.UU. “al tiempo que Puerto Rico se empeña y procura discernir su futuro”.Los puertorriqueños votaron ese día a favor de convertirse en el estado 51 del país. La votación fue contenciosa y atrajo el mejor número de personas a las urnas desde 1967. La mayoría de los observadores dice que el Congreso de EE.UU. controlado por los republicanos jamás le concederá la petición a los puertorriqueños, en parte porque el territorio se inclina hacia el Partido Demócrata.El Rdo. Charles Robertson, canónigo del Obispo Primado para el ministerio fuera de la Iglesia Episcopal, habla el 10 de junio ante el Comité Permanente Conjunto de Finanzas para la Misión. La Rda. Stephanie Spellers, canóniga del Obispo Primado para la evangelización, la reconciliación y [el cuidado de] la creación, lo escucha. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.La economía de Puerto Rico ha estado en recesión por casi una década, muchos residentes viven en la pobreza y el mes pasado se le impuso la mayor quiebra del mercado de bonos municipales de la historia de EE.UU. Esa quiebra ha destruido los ahorros de muchos puertorriqueños. Muchos habitantes [de la isla] se resienten del hecho de que ellos pagan íntegramente por el Medicare, el Medicaid y la Seguridad Social, pero reciben una cantidad más pequeña de beneficios en comparación con otros ciudadanos estadounidenses. Esos beneficios se enfrentan ahora a reducciones de parte del gobierno de Trump.Curry dijo que la diócesis es “seria respecto a ser un instrumento” que pueda salvar las brechas en necesidades sanitarias y otros servicios sociales”.En tanto el Consejo Ejecutivo se prepara para la 79ª. Reunión de la Convención General del 5 al 13 de julio del próximo año en Austin, Texas, el presupuesto denominacional está atrayendo gran atención. Su Comité Permanente Conjunto de Finanzas para la Misión elabora el presupuesto que se propone para presentarlo ante el Consejo en pleno para su aprobación. Según la Regla Conjunta II.10.c.ii (página 227 aquí), el Consejo debe entregarle ese anteproyecto de presupuesto al Comité Permanente Conjunto de Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas  (PB&F por su sigla en inglés) no menos de cuatro meses antes del comienzo de la Convención (esencialmente para febrero del año de la Convención). El Consejo tiene otras dos reuniones antes de esa fecha límite: del 18 al 21 de octubre y del 22 al 24 de enero.El Comité de Finanzas para la Misión (FFM por su sigla en inglés) dedicó gran parte de la reunión en Puerto Rico a seguir revisando grandes cantidades de información que ha recibido en los pasos iniciales de un proceso de presupuesto que ha profundizado más que nunca antes en el quehacer y la financiación de la misión y el ministerio denominacionales. El comité también se reunió por su cuenta a mediados de mayo, una iniciativa inusual de uno de los comités del Consejo, y se propone tener otras reuniones en los próximos meses.“Presentaremos un anteproyecto de presupuesto en el futuro cercano para que ustedes lo revisen” dijo la presidente del FFM Tess Judge a todo el Consejo el 11 de junio.El obispo primado Michael Curry y el Rdo. Michael Barlowe, director ejecutivo de la Convención General, prestan atención el 11 de junio mientras la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, responde a una pregunta durante la conferencia de prensa que tuvo lugar al término de la reunión del Consejo Ejecutivo que sesionó en San Juan, Puerto Rico, del 9 al 11 de junio. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Durante la conferencia de prensa que siguió a la reunión, la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, elogió el proceso del presupuesto hasta ese momento. “He visto algunos procesos presupuestarios que han sido contenciosos, difíciles, dolorosos, agotadores”, dijo ella, refiriéndose al tiempo que ha servido en el Consejo. “El trabajo del presupuesto es arduo, especialmente cuando cualquier organización tiene grandes sueños y tiene fuerzas de retención en lo tocante al monto de dinero” disponible.“Esta vez ha sido una asociación entre Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas, el Consejo Ejecutivo, el personal denominacional y los funcionarios ejecutivos”, dijo ella. Jennings reconoció que hay algunas incógnitas en el proceso en este momento “pero no ha sido tenso; en verdad ha sido bastante creativo”.Esa asociación y creatividad sugieren un cambio creciente y perceptible en el ambiente de las reuniones del Consejo. En parte, dijo Jennings, el cambio se debe a lo que ella dijo que es un punto crítico común que con frecuencia se logra cerca de la mitad del trienio. Los trabajos del Consejo, agregó ella, comienzan a engranar nuevos miembros que perciben que se ajustan al ritmo del los miembros que terminarán su período de seis años al final de la próxima convención.Ella añadió que este grupo particular de miembros del Consejo, del personal y ejecutivos ha clarificado sus papeles y responsabilidades con el objetivo de que  “estando en una asociación, todos tengamos un objetivo en mente, el cual es edificar esta amada Iglesia y nuestra misión y ministerio”.Curry llamó a la reunión de Puerto Rico “una reunión extraordinaria de un Consejo realmente  estupendo”.“Este Consejo ríe. Llevamos a cabo una tarea ardua y tenemos conversaciones difíciles y debatimos y peleamos y tratamos de resolver las cosas, pero también reímos y hay algo profundamente humano y  auxiliador y restaurador” en torno a la capacidad de hacer todas esas cosas, afirmó él.El Rdo Michael Barlowe, director ejecutivo de la Convención General, atribuyó algo del cambio en la percepción de la atmósfera a otra práctica. Al principio del trienio, los funcionarios de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera se comprometieron a orar diariamente los unos por los otros, por sus nombres, y a reunirse con regularidad, no sólo para actividades oficiales, sino para llegar a conocerse y a entenderse mejor unos con otros.“Creo que cuando el liderazgo de la Iglesia ora y dedica tiempo a juntarse, eso ejerce un cambio profundo en todo”, dijo él.El obispo primado Michael Curry eleva la hostia y el cáliz al final de la Gran Plegaria Eucarística durante el oficio del 11 de junio en la catedral de San Juan Bautista. Lo acompañaron en el altar, de izquierda a derecha, el deán de la catedral Mario H. Rodríguez, el obispo provisional de Puerto Rico Wilfrido Ramos Orench, el obispo electo de Puerto Rico Rafael Morales y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados Rda. Gay Clark Jennings. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Durante su última plenaria el 11 de junio, el Consejo tomó varias otras decisiones, algunas de las cuales se detallan más abajo. Una lista completa de las resoluciones aparece aquí.Entre esas decisiones hubo una para expandir los tipos de datos recogidos en el informe parroquial anual. Cada congregación de la Iglesia Episcopal presenta un informe que es, esencialmente, el instrumento oficial de acopio de datos de la Iglesia. La principal revisión conlleva el añadir una página completa al informe para recoger información acerca de los ministerios de asistencia comunitaria y las actividades voluntarias. El informe también contendrá una pregunta para identificar los idiomas que se usan en los oficios de culto.Las revisiones pertenecen a las actividades de 2017. El informe parroquial se completa a principios del año próximo. Las recomendaciones le llegaron al Consejo de parte del Comité de la Cámara de Diputados sobre el Estado de la Iglesia en respuesta a la Resolución A084 de la Convención de 2015 .En otras decisiones, el Consejo:Ratificó el nombramiento [hecho por] Curry y Jennings de un director interino de Asuntos Jurídicos. La Convención General creó  el cargo de obligación canónica durante su reunión de 2015. El nombre de la persona se dará a conocer tan pronto como el nombramiento se haya notificado. El Consejo se reunió en sesión ejecutiva para discutir el nombramiento antes de ratificarlo durante la última sesión plenaria de la reunión.La Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, escucha, el 11 de junio, mientras Dinorah Padro traduce su sermón durante el oficio eucarístico en la catedral de San Juan Bautista, en San Juan, Puerto Rico. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Estableció un comité para respaldar y entender el papel de las universidades que han estado históricamente [al servicio de los] negros y la importante relación con esas escuelas. El comité estará compuesto por los miembros del equipo de trabajo del Consejo creado a principios de 2015, junto con otras personas designadas. El Consejo encargó al nuevo comité hacer recomendaciones al Consejo para la Convención General de 2021 sobre las necesidades a largo plazo de las escuelas a fin de garantizarles el acceso a estudiantes de color de futuras generaciones.Recibió una recomendación del Rdo. Michael Barlowe, director ejecutivo de la Convención General, que contempla el retorno a un patrón de reunión de cuatro días en el trienio 2019-2021. El Consejo ha discutido esa posibilidad antes en este trienio. Barlowe, que es también el secretario del Consejo, sugirió que el Consejo reviva su tradición anterior de celebrar sus reuniones en cada una de las nueve provincias de la Iglesia en el transcurso del trienio. “Obviamente, eso tiene implicaciones presupuestarias”, dijo él sobre su recomendación, lo cual depende, en parte, de la cantidad de dinero que la Convención General le asigne en el presupuesto al Consejo. La Convención se reúne de nuevo en julio de 2018. El Consejo ha celebrado reuniones de tres días en este trienio y no ha tenido un programa de cuatro días desde el trienio 2004-2006. El cambio a un patrón de tres días se produjo, en parte, después de que la Convención General redujera el presupuesto del Consejo para el trienio 2007-2009. La otra razón a tener en cuenta fue que tres reuniones anuales de cuatro días dificultaban que personas más jóvenes que trabajaban sirvieran en el Consejo.La reunión del 9 al 11 de junio tuvo lugar en el hotel Condado Hilton Plaza.Artículos anteriores de ENS sobre la reunión se encuentran aquí . Algunos miembros del Consejo enviaron mensajes por Twitter valiéndose del hashtag #ExCoun.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, además del Obispo Primado y el Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados [que son miembros ex oficio]. Además, el vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados, el Secretario, el Director de Operaciones, el Tesorero y Director de Finanzas tienen asiento y voz, pero no voto.– La Rda Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora sénior y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

MJ house was designed for a young couple of forestry engineers and their two children. It has 145 m2 and is built of wood and brick. The main idea revolves around the concept of house and landscape and how they relate to the two facades; the road and the rural scenery.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldAs this house was designed from Tokyo we wanted to include some features of the local architecture. One of the things we saw in the houses of Japan, both traditional and contemporary, is a closed condition to the street to open condition inward, a result of the complex relationship between the public and private realms of Japanese society. Inspired by this, the house has both conditions, closed to the public road and open to the landscape.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldHowever, we wanted to propose a dialogue between these opposed conditions. This led us to create an overlap on the roof and achieve an open relationship between the two sides through windows, framed views, and the access of light. Thus, the ceiling becomes the pivotal element of the house and its movements and angles correspond to an intention to generate a minimal impact within the existing landscape.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldAnother concept introduced was the Japanese idea of “Engawa” or “between”, a characteristic of Japanese houses where different layers act as a threshold between public and intimate places. Therefore we designed a terrace that borders the two main facades as a continuous element, separated a few inches from the ground level allowing an intermediate space between the exterior and interior.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessNatural History Museum Proposal / Kengo Kuma & Associates + Erik Møller Arkitekter +…ArticlesVenice Biennale 2012: Reduce/Reuse/Recycle / German PavilionArticles Share Year:  Houses “COPY” Architects: COMUNarquitectos Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

The first was reserved for the intimate wing with central hanging garden and suites located on opposite sides for the most privacy of users; and the ground floor, to social environments.

In its first week, more than 80% of people who had opted to receive emails from NDCS opened the email to click through to the game. Within days, say NDCS, their opt-in email list had more than doubled.Paula Gair, Director of Future Strategy, said: “the success of beenthere.org.uk underlines the value of permission-based digital marketing for charities. It also demonstrates that organisations can diversify their prospect pool, engage existing supporters in new ways, save communications costs and create advocates for their cause by implementing a digital strategy.” The National Deaf Children’s Society has launched a viral email game to promote its fundraising adventures around the world.The game, ‘Been There, Done That’, takes you to ten locations, from Blackpool and the Costa del Sol to China and the Sahara desert. All you have to do is say whether you’ve ‘been there, done that’ by clicking ‘yes’ or ‘no’. The game features amusing photos, noises and location statistics. At the end you’ll get a rating of how adventurous you are. A 0% compares you to Eastenders’ Dot Cotton, while a 60% compares you to TV holiday show presenter Judith Chalmers.Humorous music clips include the Rembrandts’ theme from TV comedy ‘Friends’ for the email to a friend facility, and MARRS ‘ “Pump up the Volume” for the turn up the volume function.

World’s biggest prison for journalists eight years after September 2001 round-ups

The Eritrean government has become a disgrace for Africa.”The press freedom organisation added: “Eight years after President Issaias Afeworki took his country on a tragic new course, it is time for him to change direction again and agree to release the imprisoned journalists or try them according to international norms. We count on the Swedish government, the current holder of the European Union presidency, to obtain concessions from Issaias, especially as one of the jailed journalists holds dual Swedish and Eritrean citizenship.”The three most important waves of arrests of the past eight years were in September 2001, November 2006 and February 2009. Thirty journalists and two media workers are currently detained, without trial. Many are being held in metal containers or underground cells in Adi Abeito military prison (northwest of Asmara, on the road to Keren), in Eiraeiro prison (near the locality of Gahtelay, north of the road from Asmara to the port city of Massawa), in the Dahlak archipelago or one of the many other detention centres scattered around the country. Reporters Without Borders has confirmed that four journalists arrested in September 2001 did not survive the appalling prison conditions.The journalist with Swedish and Eritrean dual nationality is Dawit Isaac, the founder of the now banned weekly Setit, who was arrested on 23 September 2001. He was taken to the airforce hospital in Asmara for treatment earlier this year but he is now in Embatkala prison in Ghinda, 35 km northeast of the capital on the Massawa road.The Eritrean authorities are keeping the state of his health a secret despite the international campaigns for his release. In response to a question about Dawit during an interview for Swedish journalist Donald Boström at the end of May, President Issaias said that he did not care where Dawit was held, that he would never be tried and that the government would never negotiate his release with Sweden. See the interview with Issaias .In a resolution on 7 January 2009, the European Parliament expressed deep concern about Dawit’s continuing imprisonment and demanded his immediate release. But all the European Union attempts to obtain news about him have been ignored by the Eritrean authorities.Reporters Without Borders has meanwhile learned that, during the past three weeks, dozens of civil servants working for the ministries of information, defence, foreign affairs and national security have been forced by the authorities to surrender their email passwords.See the complete list of imprisoned journalists (updated this month): Read the account of Tedros Abraham, an Eritrean journalist exiled in Norway.

Defender of press freedom hit during protest against President Kuchma, US journalist attacked

The protesters were staging a mock trial of President Kuchma to coincide with the arrival of a team of international experts to investigate accusations of arms sales to Iraq in violation of UN sanctions. Zavada was hospitalised with concussion following the incident but is now out of danger. The authorities are investigating an act of “hooliganism” but not one of obstructing a journalist in his work.The attempt to rob Feduschak’s handbag took place on the evening of 13 October in the stairwell of the apartment building where she was staying. The handbag contained a tape-recording and notes of an interview she had carried out just two hours earlier on Ukraine’s arms sales to Iraq. The assailant finally fled empty-handed when neighbours came out on to the landing. The police declined to come to the apartment building.

According to a 2016 report by Policy Matters Ohio, there were 40,479 new foreclosure filings in Ohio in 2015, which was less than half of the peak levels seen in 2009, and 7 percent below that of 2014. However, “the total was still 2.5 times higher than levels prior to the onset of subprime lending in the mid-1990s,” according to the report. How have things improved the ensuing years, now even further removed from the housing crisis? The news from Ohio is positive, according to new data provided by Columbus REALTORS.Foreclosures have been trending downwards consistently since the crisis, and this new data from Columbus REALTORS examines that through the lens of short sales and foreclosure sales. Like many markets, central Ohio saw surging home sales in 2017, but Columbus REALTORS reports that the share of lender-mediated sales declined to 4.8 percent during Q4 2017. That’s down by more than half from 2016’s figure of 9.0 percent.According to the report, sales for all homes during Q4 were up 3.3 percent year-over-year for the region, with traditional sales up 8.1 percent but lender-mediated closed sales were down 45.1 percent.“This is excellent news,” said Sara Walsh, 2018 Columbus REALTORS President. “With the job growth we’ve experienced and improved economy over the last few years, it’s clear that fewer homeowners are having trouble with their mortgages.”The report also found significantly fewer short sales and foreclosures on the market during Q4, with the number of distressed homes on the market down 60.6 percent year-over-year. At the end of Q4, short sales and foreclosures accounted for 5.3 percent of the total inventory compared to 8.9 percent in Q4 2016. “In early 2011, distressed properties made up 23 percent of the inventory and almost half of the sales,” said Walsh.According to a 2016 report by the Brookings Institute, statewide foreclosure filings in Ohio hit  84,751 in 2007, even before the full weight of the financial crisis had hit. The Brookings report states, “As of the middle of 2008, the Mortgage Bankers Association reported that 7.17 percent of Ohio mortgage holders were delinquent in their payments, and 3.97 percent, or 1 out of every 25 mortgages, were in foreclosure. By this measure, Ohio has the third highest foreclosure rate in the United States.”Ohio is still near the top of the list when it comes to national foreclosure trends. It had the fifth highest rate in the country as of January 2018, according to RealtyTrac data, which worked out to one foreclosure action for every 1,212 housing units. Compare that, however, to 2015’s numbers, when there was one foreclosure filing for every 127 housing units, according to Policy Matters Ohio. That’s no small improvement.

The quality of the CPR was excellent and their overall contribution played a huge role in a very successful outcome for the patient.”Meanwhile Seamus Maguire, Chairperson of Donegal Rowing Club also praised the actions of the volunteers, he said that “without their prompt action and professionalism, the patient’s outcome may have been a very different one…today that patient is alive and well thanks to their swift intervention.”center_img Donegal Area of the Irish Red Cross members to receive Medal of Merit RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Journey home will be easier – Paul Hegarty Harps come back to win in Waterford DL Debate – 24/05/21 Pinterest Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Facebooklast_img read more
