With Sharia law we expect things to get even harder,” the Rev. Mark Akec Cien, the Sudan Council of Churches, deputy general secretary of the told ENInews on Jan. 20 in a telephone interview.Against the growing tensions, President Omar al-Bashir on Jan. 3 reiterated that the north’s constitution will deeply entrench the law since the non-Islamic south had seceded. Around the same time, Sudan’s Ministry of Guidance and Religious Endowment threatened to arrest church leaders if they carried out evangelistic activities, according to Compass Direct News, a service that reports on Christians’ persecution.The ministry has also been demanding names and contact places of churches, the service said. It referred to a warning letter sent to the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church on Jan. 3 by Hamid Yousif Adam, the ministry undersecretary.“This is a critical situation faced by our church in Sudan,” the Rev. Yousif Matar told the news service.John Ashworth, an advisor of the Sudan Ecumenical Forum on Jan. 19 said that this could prove very damaging for church life in Sudan. “Christianity is now regarded as a foreign,” he said.At the same time, fear intensified among Christians on Jan. 16 following the abduction of two Roman Catholic priests by a militia in Rabak, south of the capital of Khartoum.Commenting on the kidnap, the Roman Catholic Bishop Daniel Adwok, an auxiliary of the Khartoum Archdiocese, told ENInews the militia was demanding a ransom of 500,000 Sudanese pounds (US$180,000) to release the clerics.center_img Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Bath, NC Sudan & South Sudan TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Youth Minister Lorton, VA Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Smithfield, NC Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Rector Columbus, GA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Submit an Event Listing Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Tampa, FL Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Convention to consider resolutions on Israeli-Palestinian conflict

first_imgConvention to consider resolutions on Israeli-Palestinian conflict July 8, 2012 at 6:38 am Step aside Episcopal and Presbyterian Churches as you are totally useless to the Palestinian people. All our Church can come up with is more study & education when people are dying, are crushed, are oppressed? My heart was so saddened when I read this column & the Presiding Bishop’s response to Palestine. More tea & sherry theology from our Presiding Bishop & others. Pass the biscuits, too. The only problem is that the Palestinians can’t get the biscuits … imports are blocked, while in some places getting even clean water to bake them is difficult. Adequate healthcare (such as prenatal care in a growing community), access to jobs or even deeds to their own lands are all denied to Palestinians. Their homes, property & even ancient olive trees (a proud symbol of family heritage & an income) are mowed down so folks born & raised in my Brooklyn borough can move in claiming ownership to land they never had any right to. Let’s start talking about the sins of settlements. And what about basic clean water. Let’s start educating others to the plight of Palestinian adults, seniors & children via organizations like MECA, Middle East’s Children Alliance. who note in their website: There is a growing water crisis in Palestine that affects agriculture, industry, and the health of virtually every adult and child. The water crisis in the Gaza Strip has been building for decades but has reached a critical point. The is a good issue to spend money on. paraphrase the words of a Saturday Night Live character of church background, “How special!” it is (our direction in this cause is ludicrous) that we want to educate & study (this is productive advocacy?) more violence, oppression, degradation, lack of human rights, the humiliation of a people, with more of our ineffectual, passive social justice perspectives. Even some who respond to this article imply that Palestinians are terrorists & responsible for the scourge of Islamic fundamentalism. Give me a break….how do you educate this American Fox fed TV mindset? How easy & facile it is to demonize & label folks whose shoes you have never walked in. And of course we should reject the behavior of the minority few Palestinians whose image gets most of the press coverage, to take up arms or rocks.The Israeli government will only bow to economic pressures & stop horrific human rights abuses when we stop sending them welfare in the name of national security. When I e-mailed a Syrian Christian friend Friday’s New York Times article on the Presbyterian Church’s refusal to pass a resolution to divest, he calmly pointed out to me the only others, besides Israelis, allowed to own land in Israel are churches. No wonder we have little credibility; we’re landowners pontificating over our plantations. The very fact that the Church is concerned about possible retribution is the very reason we should divest and boycott Israeli products. We should side with our wallets, not our thetoric or tepid theology for the victimized. Our funds should not support, what in other more reasoned, practical, educated circles is seen as terrorism. PS. In the meantime, support the positive images of Palestinians, which are rarely promoted here in the states, like “The Lemon Tree” (which is now a beautiful movie) or how about “Ameerka”. Unfortunately you can’t meet many of the Palestinians unless you visit the Middle East, since they are frequently denied transit to & from Israel. Rector Martinsville, VA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Advocacy Peace & Justice, July 7, 2012 at 9:30 am Charles, you are listening to propaganda. First of all, and this is well documented, Hamas was funded by Israel to raise up a political party to counter Arafat. Hamas has been very helpful to Israel because any violence that has occurred has been useful to Israel as the nation continues to be the victims. As long as Israel is a victim they do not have to take responsibility for their own actions. I highly recommend that anyone sharing Charles’s views should spend three months in Bethlehem. I just returned as an Ecumenical Accompanier with the World Council of Churches. I was the only American. There are many legitimate Israeli NGOs who are working to bring an end to the occupation: Machsom Watch, Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions, Women in Black, Breaking the Silence, New Profiles.

The network says that the legislation calls not for boycotts, sanctions and divestment but for the church to implement existing policy.That policy dates to 2005, when Executive Council, as recommended by its Social Responsibility in Investments Committee, commended a report calling for “corporate engagement” and “positive investment” when dealing with companies in which the Episcopal Church owns assets and shares.Jefferts Schori visited Israel and the West Bank in 2008. Asked about divestment, she told ENS in a recent interview that the Christian tradition “generally has not been to shun people. It has been to call people to greater engagement … and relationship, and I think that is especially needed in the land of the Holy One right now.”During an Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles gathering in March, Jefferts Schori urged Episcopalians to “invest in legitimate development in Palestine’s West Bank and in Gaza” rather than focus on divestment or boycotts of Israel.If people have particular concerns about corporations’ policies, she told ENS, “then positive engagement would mean to become a shareholder and go to a shareholders meeting and challenge the administration of the corporation. It’s a positive response rather than a negative one.”The Rev. Cotton Fite, an Episcopal priest from Evanston, Illinois, and a Palestine Israel Network member, said the core of the PIN resolution, which he helped to draft, is about education.“My experience is that few Episcopalians have really heard the whole story. We’re very acquainted with the Israeli narrative but not the Palestinian narrative,” he told ENS. “The more people who are educated the stronger, more robust the advocacy will become, but they will choose what form of advocacy is the best approach for them.”Fite added that the resolution “is not about divestment, although it is being perceived in that way. We think it would be a mistake to reject or adopt divestment as a policy of the church at this time. We are saying that we think people should learn about it and make up their minds about it, but it is not in this resolution.”Another resolution (B010), submitted by Bishop John Tarrant of South Dakota and endorsed by Northwestern Pennsylvania Bishop Sean Rowe and New York Bishop Mark Sisk, urges peacemaking through positive investment in Palestine. The resolution calls on the church to reject boycott, divestment or economic sanctions “and other divisive and punitive measures which seek to tear down, not to build up” while urging an immediate freeze to Israeli settlement construction and for peace talks to resume.Tarrant visited Israel and the West Bank in early May to speak with Israelis and Palestinians about the conflict and the stalled peace process. He told ENS that “the notion that boycott and divestment will somehow lead to an end to the occupation is based on two misconceptions: that one side holds all the blame and that unilateral concessions on the part of Israel are all that is needed; and that economic and political pressure will force Israel into those concessions. Neither of these is true.”Tarrant said that positive investment in Palestine “is not meant as a panacea or an alternative to a political solution. There must be a negotiated two-state solution.” Investment, he added, “will help build a state that will be viable when a political solution is found and it will also empower Palestinians at the negotiating table – the only place where a final status agreement ending the occupation can be reached.”Several church leaders in the Jerusalem diocese and the U.S.-based Episcopal Church have raised concerns that any action supporting divestment could negatively impact the ministry of the diocese and its institutions.Bishop Suheil Dawani, who oversees the ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem & the Middle East and its more than 30 social service institutions, told ENS that he always prefers to hear people talk about investment.“Investment is something we all need here in the hardships and difficult economic situation,” said Dawani, who is one of the international guests attending General Convention.Asked about his viewpoint on divestment, Dawani said: “In my opinion this is very political and in practice it doesn’t help anybody because we [need to be] working together.”At a General Convention reception honoring Dawani on July 5, Jefferts Schori said: “Our interference is not helpful. Our job is to be supportive of people on the ground there.”Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem Suheil Dawani at a July 5 reception honoring his ministry. ENS photo/Matthew DaviesThe Very Rev. Hosam Naoum, dean of St. George’s Cathedral in Jerusalem, recently told ENS that “the church in the Holy Land depends so much on Israeli permits, depends so much on Israeli influence,” noting the ramifications that divestment could have on the diocese. “It is important that if and when we take such a step, we have exhausted all that we can so that it is really justified.”“I am with a call for being more on the side with investing in people,” he added, “investing in human beings, investing in what we have today in the Holy Land.”Divestment challenges the Israeli government “most fundamentally,” said Jefferts Schori, and “makes them exceedingly fearful. The reality of the difficulties the Diocese of Jerusalem lives with means that would only make its life much harder.”She identified as one example the recent challenges Dawani experienced as a Palestinian living in Jerusalem in regaining and keeping his residency permit. With divestment, she said, “that kind of difficulty would only get far worse.”But the Rev. Vicki Gray, a deacon and alternate on the Diocese of California deputation to General Convention, criticized the Palestine Israel Network resolution for not going far enough.“I would ask our deputies and bishops to stand up and vote “no” on the unworthy resolution,” said Gray, who has visited Israel and the Palestinian Territories three times. “I would ask them, instead, to consider a resolution that forthrightly … calls for concrete action, including a boycott of products from the settlements and divestment from companies that enable the occupation.”Such a resolution (D039) has been proposed by the Rev. David Ota, and endorsed by the Rev. Stacey Grossman and the Rev. Sarah Lawton, all from the Diocese of California. It urges Episcopalians to divest from American companies that enable the occupation and to boycott products manufactured on Jewish settlements. It also calls on the U.S. Government to “bring stronger and more resolute American diplomatic leadership to the cause of peace with justice between Israel and Palestine”; calls for the cessation of violence by all Palestinians and Israelis; and “rejects any and all attempts to equate honest and legitimate criticism of unwise policies by the Government of Israel with the sin of anti-Semitism.”Gray said that the church needs to “reject, once and for all, the libel of anti-Semitism so regularly hurled against those who criticize Israeli policies that are illegal and immoral. What is immoral is not to criticize. For there is nothing so sad as silence, especially from a church confronted by injustice.”The Rev. Naim Ateek, director of the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center in Jerusalem, is a Palestinian Christian who supports divestment. In a recent interview with ENS, Ateek said that the church should be prepared to suffer to achieve greater justice and peace for everyone.“We must be willing to suffer the consequences of our decisions,” he said. “Ultimately, I think [divestment] will raise the issue to a level that the whole world will support it … Unfortunately, because of fear, the church is not willing to take that stand … If we can just take the lead, many people will follow.”Many of the Episcopal Church’s ecumenical partners have in their own synods and conventions rejected a policy of boycotts, sanctions and divestment against Israel.In May, the United Methodist Church voted against two proposals to divest from companies that provide equipment used by Israel to enforce its control in the occupied territories.The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, at its 2011 Churchwide Assembly, rejected divestment from Israel and encouraged the church to make positive economic investments in Palestine.The Presbyterian Church USA, currently meeting for its General Assembly in Pittsburgh, considered a resolution urging “divestment and/or proscription of some corporations due to their involvement in military-related production, tobacco or human rights violations.” Following a three-hour debate July 5, they rejected the call for divestment and instead supported positive investment.The Presbyterians voted in 2004 “to initiate a process of phased, selective divestment in multinational corporations operating in Israel.” After much criticism, two years later they toned done the resolution’s language and said it had caused “hurt and misunderstanding.” (The Presbyterian Church USA does not have a counterpart church in Israel and the Palestinian Territories.)Long-term conflictThe conflict between Israelis and Palestinians has lasted more than 60 years. Today, the peace process has stalled, with Israeli and Palestinian leaders each blaming the others’ actions as the cause. Palestinians say the continued expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem undermines the viability of a future Palestinian state, while Israeli leaders have questioned the Palestinian Authority’s commitment to negotiations in the wake of President Mahmoud Abbas’ decision to seek statehood status at the United Nations in September 2011.At the time of Abbas’ statehood bid, world and church leaders, including Jefferts Schori, warned that lasting peace in the region only could be realized through negotiations between Israel and Palestine, and not via shortcuts.The Palestine Israel Network resolution that General Convention will consider acknowledges the current impasse and calls on the church to participate in “more vigorous and public corporate engagement with companies in the church’s investment portfolio that do business in illegal Israeli settlements or contribute to the infrastructure of the occupation.”The network is part of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship, an independent association of Episcopalians committed to nonviolence.The Episcopal Peace Fellowship in 2010 issued a statement in support of economic sanctions and divestment strategies that it believes “can inspire a more useful dialog and negotiation towards a just and lasting peace in the Middle East.”Former Bishop of Washington John Bryson Chane, a member of EPF since 1969, told ENS at the time that such a strategy is “flawed and dangerously unhelpful at this particular time in history” and would “further hurt the critical development of the economy of Palestine and increase the marginalization of the Palestinian people.”Although the network’s resolution does not call specifically for boycotts, sanctions and divestment, it urges the Episcopal Church to study documents that support such a strategy.The Kairos Palestine document, released in December 2009 and signed by several Palestinian Christian leaders, accuses Israel of “disregard of international law and international resolutions” and calls for an end to occupation of Palestinian territory.“Palestinian civil organizations, as well as international organizations, NGOs and certain religious institutions call on individuals, companies and states to engage in divestment and in an economic and commercial boycott of everything produced by the occupation,” the document says. “We understand this to integrate the logic of peaceful resistance. These advocacy campaigns must be carried out with courage, openly sincerely proclaiming that their object is not revenge but rather to put an end to the existing evil, liberating both the perpetrators and the victims of injustice.”The Episcopal Church, based on resolutions passed at its previous General Conventions, remains committed to a just peace that ends the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land and guarantees Israel’s security and Palestinian aspirations for a viable sovereign state, with Jerusalem as the shared capital of both Israel and Palestine.The Diocese of Los Angeles is among those that filed the PIN resolution to General Convention. The diocese also has proposed Resolution C026, which reiterates support for a two-state solution, urges stronger U.S. diplomatic leadership to achieve peace and, recognizing the distress the conflict has caused to both sides, calls for the cessation of violence by all Palestinians and Israelis.The resolution also calls on the U.S. government to practice financial transparency in all of its aid to the Palestinians and Israelis. And it calls for an end to the blockade of the Gaza Strip and for a halt to the ongoing confiscation of Palestinian land, demolition of housing and displacement of people.Los Angeles Bishop Jon Bruno also is proposing Resolution B017 urging the church to join in fundraising efforts to help meet the shortfall created by the reduction in funding to the Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza. The resolution also is supported by Bishops Suffragan Diane Jardine Bruce and Mary D. Glasspool of Los Angeles, Rickel of Olympia and Bishop Mariann Budde of Washington, D.C.The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) announced June 1 it was ending its financial support to the hospital, an institution run by the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem and the Middle East. The decision cuts the hospital’s budget by approximately $1 million per year, or nearly half.General Convention may decide whether to pass, amend and pass, or reject any resolutions it considers. Resolutions relating to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will be considered by the National and International Concerns committee, which may decide to rework or consolidate them before any draft legislation is sent to whichever house (deputies or bishops) has been chosen as the house of initial action.A public hearing on the resolutions is scheduled for the afternoon of July 6.Lending supportMany Episcopal Church dioceses and individuals have long-standing partnerships with the Jerusalem diocese and support the ministry of its more than 30 social service institutions throughout Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the Palestinian Territories. The institutions include schools, hospitals, clinics and centers for people with disabilities.The diocese and the institutions also are supported by the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, a nonpolitical, nonprofit organization established in 1985.The Jerusalem diocese “is part of the global Anglican family, and in hard times families stand together,” Phoebe Griswold, AFEDJ advisory board member and outgoing president, told ENS. “It is our familial responsibility to reach out, visit and touch our Anglican dioceses as they carry out Christ’s mission in their own places.”One of the best ways for people to support the diocese is to learn about its context and to visit, Griswold told ENS.“To actually show our support by visiting and standing beside the beleaguered Palestinian peoples is a concrete way of bringing hope. A complete pilgrimage includes both elements of our faith heritage and opportunities to understand how today’s Christians actually live.”She noted that AFEDJ’s website recently added a guide to creating a pilgrimage at the local level.“Once someone understands the needs of the Diocese of Jerusalem through information from the AFEDJ website, then the best response is to aid financially the diocese’s ministry through AFEDJ,” she said. “The heath-care institutions, hospitals and schools are in desperate need as they serve many in the challenging reality of the Israeli occupation. “On July 5, the American Friends sent $50,000 in support of the Gaza hospital.Another source of major concern for the Jerusalem diocese is the many Palestinian and Israeli Christians who have left the Holy Land in search of better opportunities and a better life overseas.“We as a church need to invest in the existing institutions, Naoum told ENS, “because those institutions are not only a means of surviving in this place. Actually, these are the means of the presence of Christians in the Holy Land.”Said Dawani: “Investment really will encourage people not only to stay here, but to feel that they can take care of their families and the future of their children.”Jefferts Schori noted that Christians were leaving “because life is too difficult to sustain in the land of the Holy One.”Students in Gaza who get scholarships to study abroad, for example, are unlikely to return once they secure an exit permit, she said. “The Palestinian people need the gifts and resources of all of their members, but when they leave, those are lost. There’s certainly hope that the diaspora will be eventually returned to bless the nation with its gifts, but it’s not something that any of us expect within the next few weeks or months.”Asked where she sees God in the Jerusalem diocese, Jefferts Schori said: “In the faces of all of the people in the land of the Holy One. The image of God is reflected on their faces. I see Jesus weeping at the tomb of Lazarus looking for resurrection in that place. I see the dove and the olive branch as a sign of the work of the spirit in that place, deeply seeking reconciliation and new life for all of the people of the Holy Land.”Griswold said she sees God in the people of the Diocese of Jerusalem “as they struggle for human dignity … Because of the strength of their faith in God’s love for all humanity supported by the church, they are able to reach out in hospitality and acceptance of others and be teachers, healers and reconcilers.”At the July 5 reception, Dawani thanked the presiding bishop and the American Friends for their ongoing support for the ministry of his diocese. “We believe that our work is your work as well. Our institutions are your institutions because we are the body of Christ.”— Matthew Davies is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service. Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Washington, DC July 6, 2012 at 2:07 pm Thank you, Matt, for this really good article and your comprehensive coverage of this and other conflict areas over the years.All Episcopalians should remember that our Church has supported the many important ministries of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem and the Middle East for decades — through the Good Friday Offering, the United Thank Offering, and Episcopal Relief and Development — and, I pray, will continue to use these and other means to show their commitment in the decades to come. Rector Bath, NC July 6, 2012 at 2:08 pm Goodness, this all sounds familiar: We need to be positively, constructively, engaged in the Holy Land; investment brings change, not divestment; we mustn’t demonize one side; this is a particularly bad time; the struggle is socialist; those engaged in it are terrorists; the State of Israel is our friend and ally; the realities are, yes, unjust, but gradual change is best.All of these points, cited in one form or another in the article and the comments above, we have heard before. They were used by those in the United States (churches, society, and government) against a call for divestment against the apartheid regime in South Africa 30 years ago, by those who paid lip-service to the suffering of Africans but urged them to be patient, we’re working on it. Happily, the Episcopal Church and many others eventually endorsed divestment, and economic pressure on South Africa played a significant role in ending apartheid.But now we’re going through the same ritual, with the same excuses. Palestinian-South African parallels are striking, as Archbishop Tutu has often pointed out: Land seizure, forced removals, destruction of livelihood, restrictions on movement, and on and on. But we – as a government, people and church – have been constructively engaged with the State of Israel for well over half-a-century, and Israel has proceeded on their way, with illegal settlements, destruction of homes, seizure of land. And at the moment, when there is nothing we can point to that is promising on the Israeli-Palestinian peace front, we are to conclude that economic pressure is unhelpful “at this particular time in history.” When, pray tell, is?I was particularly taken by the suggestion in the article that divestment would have made it even worse when the Israelis prevented our Anglican bishop from coming into Jerusalem, where the cathedral and diocesan offices are. I’d have thought our response would have been outrage at such an Israeli policy; instead, this suggestion is classic blame-the-victim thinking. Let’s not make them mad.Finally, I was pleased that after focusing extensively on anti-divestment voices, the article chose to quote Naim Ateek. He is not, however, just a “Palestinian Christian,” as the article chose to identify him. He is an Anglican priest, former canon at St. George’s Cathedral, and internationally respected as head of Sabeel. His open letter in April to our presiding bishop deserves a careful reading.

Both are wrong , one side kills 1400 people with bombs and the other maybe 10 people with rockets. Killing has to stop on the bigger scale and the smaller scale. As Christians we should be concerned only with helping the oppressed people who are suffering due to lack of basic human rights, medical help, food, water and all basics. The brutal military occupation of the Palestinian territories has to end to end the suffering. Mary Morris says: Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET July 5, 2012 at 11:17 pm This continued support for Palestinian organizations – many of them little more than front organizations for terrorist groups – strikes me at best the sort of misguided policies followed by James Earl Carter which lead to the abandonment of a US ally and the rise of the current Islamic republic and at worst treason, plain and simple. These groups, supported by ECUSA and its blatantly political Jerusalem diocese are not operating in US interests and lobbying on their behalf is not where I want to see church resources squandered. July 7, 2012 at 11:47 am Because I went to Israel and saw, I very much agree that our Church ought to support investment in Palestine, rather than divestment in Israel. I agree with other resolutions that support The Episcopal Church resolutions to end Israeli occupation of Palestinian land and support for a sovereign Palestinian state, with Jerusalem as the shared capital of both Israel and Palestine. I support a two-state solution, the cessation of violence by all Palestinians and Israelis, an end to the blockade of the Gaza Strip, stopping the continuing ILLEGAL confiscation of Palestinian land, demolition of housing and displacement of people. I didn’t come to agreement with these resolutions by reading books, attending lectures, watching political bloggers and blogging. It is good to read books on the subject, lisen to lectures, entertain Comments. But it is best to go there and experience Israel/Palestine in the so-called Holy Land, or listen to people who have made this pilgrimage. Visit Jerusalem, this divided city of the three monotheistic religions. Then, see what you believe personally about what our Church ought to be doing there. Go to Israel and experience what it is like to live in occupied territory. Experience all the fine points and small print. Be subject to another kind of “terrorism.”I had a lot of theories about the politics of the conflict in Israel/Palestine, theories about the threats to Israel’s existence and America’s political duty to our Israeli brothers and sisters. I frankly didn’t think much about any duty to Palestinian and Arab Christians, after all, they are a very small percentage of inhabitants of The Holy Land. Then, I went there. I spent time as an individual living there for even a short period of time. I wasn’t there on a sight-seeing tour. I was there to experience the “Holy Land.” It changed me forever in a lot of political and religious ways. So, I urge everybody to go there.It’s easy to sit at home in the US and make arm-chair assessments of The Conflict. I respectfully say, go there and live the questions before giving solutions. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Charles Smith says: Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Sue & Sandy Smock says: Submit a Job Listing July 6, 2012 at 10:51 pm I don’t recall South Africans being involved or supporting groups that engaged in an act of war on US soil. The same cannot be said for Islamic terrorists, which have been openly supported by groups like Hamas. This is a matter of recorded and well documented fact. It is also a well documented fact that the Palestinian population and leadership supports groups like Hamas. It should not take an IQ greater than one’s shoe size to realize that these people, whom ECUSA wants to support, are not our friends, but our sworn enemies. To date, they continue to support terrorists who fire rockets at civilians and plot to kill more civilians in the west.Further, US law is quite clear about providing aid and comfort to terrorist organizations, which should also include groups that provide them aid, support, and cover.Consider: “The Supreme Court has ruled that human rights advocates, providing training and assistance in the nonviolent resolution of disputes, can be prosecuted as terrorists,” said Georgetown University law professor David Cole, who argued the case. (Holder v. Humanitarian Law project, No. 08-1498, and Humanitarian Law Project v. Holder, No. 09-89.)In short, I think a good case can be made that ECUSA’s activities are not only a clear and compelling action against US interests, but are possibly unlawful as well. Back years ago in civics class, I remember being taught that the word for giving aid and comfort to an enemy was treason. Comments are closed. July 8, 2012 at 9:30 pm I have no desire to visit the third world for any reason, no matter what is to be learned or not learned there, mainly because of the sort of violence that goes on there against civilian targets. Followers of Islam have made it quite clear they have no concept of non-combatants and rather than operate under the rules of civilized warfare, as for example defined by the Geneva conversions, tend to engage in activity like firing rockets into civilian settlements or engage in suicide bombers on buses filled with soft targets.For this reason, and that the Israeli people and government are our allies, I support whatever action Israel takes against these uncivilized barbarians. Olivia Solomon says: July 6, 2012 at 1:33 am I listened – and watched – as Carter allowed and supported Khomeini to rise to power – what one might argue a fairly minor event – but one that has had and continues to have profound ripples today. including hostile Islamic republics engaging in terrorism against 1st world states and that resulted, among other things, the 9/11 attacks.I’ve listened quite enough to liberal, socialist and humanist views. Perhaps you should focus on examining the historical results of the sort of policies ECUSA is advocating, instead of listening to wishful thinking and longing for a My Little Pony world view.I’ve frankly heard enough of the sort of activism ECUSA has come to embrace in this particular arena, and it appears that the declining membership and declining funds placed at ECUSA’s disposal are pretty clear indications that a lot of other folk do not like what they hear – a trend I expect to accelerate as the aging membership depart this realm of tears and are not replaced.

Foto de Peter Williams para el CMI.Reflexiones y cobertura adicional de la Asamblea del CMI pueden verse en vídeo aquí.[Episcopal News Service, Busán, Corea del Sur] Ya sea abogando a favor de la igualdad sexual, denunciando la persecución religiosa, discutiendo la pobreza mundial, la discriminación, el cambio climático o muchas otras inquietudes, los temas de la justicia y la paz mundiales fueron el meollo de la 10ª. Asamblea General del Consejo Mundial de Iglesias, que ha atraído a miles de cristianos de 345 iglesias miembros en 110 países a Busán, en la República de Corea.El tema de la reunión, que sesiona del 30 de octubre al 8 de noviembre, es “Dios de vida, condúcenos a la justicia y la paz”.Para Jasmine Bostock, hawaiana nativa y una de los cuatro delegados oficiales de la Iglesia Episcopal a la Asamblea, el mayor don del CMI es desempeñar un papel de moderador al abordar algunos de los problemas más apremiantes del mundo. “Son la única visión panorámica… que tenemos, en un nivel ecuménico global”.La Rda. Margaret Rose, funcionaria encargada de asuntos ecuménicos e interreligiosos de la Iglesia Episcopal, dice que el ecumenismo “nos ayuda a darnos cuenta de que no somos el centro del mundo, que todo no es acerca de nosotros… Dios es mucho más grande que nuestras propias definiciones. El ecumenismo consiste en vivir como miembro de la familia de Dios, afirmando quienes somos en contraste con los demás y en el contexto mucho mayor de la misión de Dios, que exige la participación de todos nosotros”.Miembros de la delegación oficial de la Iglesia Episcopal a la Asamblea General del CMI examinan un documento durante una de las sesiones plenarias. Ellos son (de izquierda a derecha) la Rda. Margaret Rose, la Rda. Consuela Sánchez, el obispo Dean Wolfe y Jasmine Bostock. Foto de Matthew Davies para ENS.Además de Bostock y Rose, los delegados oficiales de la Iglesia Episcopal son el obispo Dean Wolfe, de la Diócesis Episcopal de Kansas, y la Rda. Consuela Sánchez, coordinadora provincial para la Diócesis Episcopal de Honduras.Ellos se cuentan entre unos 160 anglicanos y más de otros 3.000 cristianos reunidos en Busán.Rose dijo que la reunión también le había ofrecido un importante espacio a los anglicanos para reunirse [en un evento] donde la prioridad no es interna, “sino más bien encontrar la manera en que los cristianos juntos puedan marcar la diferencia en un mundo quebrantado”.La Asamblea es el máximo organismo gubernativo del Consejo Mundial de Iglesias y se reúne cada seis u ocho años. Ese es el momento en que la fraternidad de las iglesias miembros se congrega como un todo en oración y celebración.El arzobispo de Cantórbery, Justin Welby, en su alocución a la asamblea, describió la reunión como “una oportunidad para el encuentro genuino, una oportunidad para aprender mutuamente sobre los demás y para aprender los unos de los otros. Renovamos nuestro compromiso con la trayectoria ecuménica y con la tarea ecuménica. Nos necesitamos mutuamente” [Un vídeo de la alocución de Welby puede encontrarse aquí].Welby le dijo más tarde a ENS que, para él, parte del regalo que ha significado asistir a su primera Asamblea del CMI ha sido ver “la Iglesia en su acepción más amplia congregada junta, muchísimas diferencias de opinión, muchísimas faltas y flaquezas y grietas, pero juntos… Nos convertimos en una fuerza reconciliadora cuando intervenimos en la reconciliación”. [Un vídeo de los comentarios de Welby a ENS se encuentra aquí].La dificultad para el CMI, dijo Bostock a ENS, “es que hay muchos problemas, hay muchos contextos y de qué manera uno va a llegar a hacer un juicio de valor que diga que los pueblos indígenas son más importantes que los ‘intocables’, o…que los problemas de la igualdad sexual son más importantes que el cambio climático. Uno no puede nivelar esos problemas en una escala de uno a 10 y ciertamente uno no puede hablar por todo el mundo en todos los contextos”.Pero Bostock, de 23 años, que preside el Comité sobre el Ministerio Indígena del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal, reconoce que hay ciertas injusticias que el CMI sí decide abordar y que “en algunos contextos eso resulta más influyente y más útil que en otros contextos. Pero, para mí personalmente, viniendo del contexto hawaiano, tiene que ver más con una toma de conciencia. Tiene que ver más con transmitirnos nuestro conocimiento de uno a otro”.Bostock, que prestó servicios de prácticas en el CMI en 2010, también participó en un evento para pueblos indígenas anterior a la asamblea. “Lo que hace a los problemas indígenas tan apremiantes es que los indígenas tienden a ser los más afectados por problemas como el del cambio climático, el agua potable, el VIH y el SIDA”, dijo ella [Un vídeo de Bostock en el que habla sobre los problemas de los indígenas puede verse aquí].De izquierda a derecha, Jasmine Bostock, de la Diócesis Episcopal de Hawái; Leonard Imbiri, secretario general del Consejo de Costumbres de Papúa, y Sarah Eagle Heart, misionera de la Iglesia Episcopal para los indígenas, se ayudan mutuamente a atarse un brazalete de oración por la unidad. Foto del CMI.Otros participantes de la Iglesia Episcopal son Sarah Eagle Heart, misionera del ministerio indígena; Emma Lee Schauf, joven adulta voluntaria en el programa de mayordomos; Rachel Cosca y Carrie Diaz Littauer, en un programa de estudios teológicos auspiciado por el Instituto Teológico Ecuménico Global y Carlin Van Schaik, voluntaria del Cuerpo de Servicio de Jóvenes Adultos que trabaja de voluntaria en el programa Hacia la Paz en Corea, que tiene su sede en Seúl.“La fe cristiana tiene una tremenda responsabilidad de unirse en torno a problemas fundamentales —la violencia, la guerra, la pobreza—, esos son nuestros grandes problemas globales que exigirán una gran respuesta global de la Iglesia Universal”, dijo Wolfe, “y así nuestras pequeñas diferencias entre denominaciones en verdad resaltan cuando uno las compara con las enormes necesidades que hay en todas partes. De manera que la Iglesia cristiana tiene una oportunidad de coincidir en una variedad de lugares y luego llevar a cabo la obra que Cristo nos ha dado a hacer: ser restauradores, reconciliadores, a veces agitadores” [Un vídeo sobre los comentarios de Wolfe ENS puede encontrarse aquí].El Rdo. Olav Tveit, secretario general del CMI, se dirige a la Asamblea durante su plenaria de apertura el 30 de octubre. Foto de Matthew Davies para ENS.Durante los primeros tres días de los diez que dura la asamblea, los delegados escucharon a varios oradores dirigirse al pleno sobre temas tales como el VIH y el SIDA, la persecución a los cristianos, las comunidades marginadas, la paz en la Península de Corea, y participaron en conversaciones ecuménicas, estudios bíblicos, cultos, talleres y sesiones de trabajo de comités.Michel Sidibé, director ejecutivo de UNAIDS, exhortó a las iglesias a “proteger al vulnerable”, especialmente a las minorías sexuales, a los trabajadores sexuales y a otras comunidades que se enfrentan a la amenaza de la pandemia del VIH. También le pidió a la Iglesia que desafíe los tabúes y aliente la compasión y el apoyo para los que viven con el VIH o están afectados por el SIDA.Corea sigue siendo una península políticamente dividida en la que muchas personas esperan que un día el norte y el sur se reunifiquen. La iglesia en Corea, junto con el movimiento ecuménico, han alentado los empeños a favor de la reunificación durante décadas.Al preguntarle que problema en particular le gustaría que la asamblea resaltara, el Rdo. Canónigo Kenneth Kearon, secretario general de la Comunión Anglicana, dijo que las iglesias en Corea, particularmente la Iglesia Anglicana de Corea, han promovido encarecidamente la reconciliación en su patria dividida. “Las familias se dividieron cuando se produjeron las divisiones, de manera que es un problema muy personal también”, le dijo ENS. “A veces nos acostumbramos a las divisiones en el mundo, y aprendemos a vivir con ellas y tendemos a ignorarlas… De manera que me gustaría hacer ese compromiso personal de sobreponerse a las divisiones de una manera práctica” [Un vídeo con los comentario de Kearon a ENS se encuentra aquí].El arzobispo de Cantórbery, Justin Welby (a la izquierda) y el obispo Munib Younan, de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana de Palestina y Jordania comparten un momento luego de firmar la ratificación de los líderes de la fe a “Bienvenido el extranjero”. Foto de Matthew Davies para ENS.Welby se unió al Rdo. Olav Tveit, secretario general del CMI y al obispo Munib Younan, de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana de Palestina y Jordania y presidente de la Federación Luterana Mundial, en ser los primeros en firmar una ratificación de los líderes de la fe a “Bienvenido el extranjero”.  La ratificación fue iniciativa de una coalición de organizaciones de carácter religioso en respuesta a un llamado hecho en diciembre de 2012 por Antonio Guterres, Alto Comisionado de las Naciones Unidas para los Refugiados. Se espera que las agrupaciones religiosas de todo el mundo utilicen las ratificaciones para fomentar en sus comunidades el apoyo a los refugiados y a otras personas desplazadas.Durante el fin de semana, del 2 y 3 de noviembre, los participantes se diseminaron a través de Corea del Sur para varias visitas demostrativas relacionadas con asuntos de justicia y paz y para asistir a servicios religiosos en centenares de comunidades cristianas a través del país.En los últimos días, la asamblea asumirá fundamentalmente un carácter pragmático, priorizando mensajes, formalizando declaraciones y llamados a la acción, y proponiendo lineamientos generales para el futuro trabajo programático del CMI. Un Comité Central, salido de los delegados del CMI, se dedicará en gran medida a la labor de redactar los comunicados finales.Además de las iglesias miembros del CMI, las organizaciones asociadas y otras iglesias —tales como la Iglesia Católica Romana— tienen una notable presencia en el evento. Eso hace de una asamblea del CMI la más diversa reunión cristiana de su tamaño en el mundo. Es una oportunidad única para las iglesias de profundizar su compromiso con la unidad visible y el testimonio común.Desde que el Consejo Mundial de Iglesias se estableciera en 1948, ésta es la primera vez que la Asamblea General se reúne en Asia. Se eligió a la República de Corea porque la Iglesia en las últimas décadas ha crecido rápidamente en este país, donde cerca del 25 por ciento de la población es cristiano.Los asociados en plena comunión con la Iglesia Episcopal también tienen una notable presencia en la asamblea, entre ellos los representantes de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América, la Iglesia Morava, las Iglesias Veterocatólicas de la Unión de Utrecht, la Iglesia Filipina Independiente y la Iglesia Siria Mar Thoma de Malabar.El arzobispo Anders Wejryd de la Iglesia de Suecia (luterana), que se encuentra en proceso de formalizar una relación de plena comunión con la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo: “Creo que el cristianismo se hace demasiado pequeño si se limita a nosotros mismos. Uno tiene que ver otras expresiones [de fe] y ver como el cristianismo responde a otros desafíos más que a los propios”.La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, a quien Wolfe representaba en la asamblea, ha definido la reunión como “una oportunidad de apoyar a otros con el fin de edificar una sociedad de paz con justicia”.Ella le dijo a ENS que la participación de la Iglesia Episcopal “es nuestro acto de solidaridad, nuestra reunión con otros miembros del cuerpo de Cristo para cumplir este sueño de Dios. Oramos con nuestra presencia y con nuestras acciones, concibiendo estrategias, pensando teológicamente y creando coaliciones. Doy gracias por la disposición de nuestros representantes a participar en esta asamblea en Busán, Corea”.– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

The Episcopal Church seemed the answer to my prayers; until I came upon this.I DO NOT CONDONE GUN VIOLENCE IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM.But I DO BELIEVE that The 2nd Ammendment, proposed by the founding fathers of our great nation, is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. Especially in today’s world. It is NOT the gun – it’s the person behind the gun. Why do you think Brownell is responsible for all the tragedies? And secondly, your “Christianity” attitude that Mr. Brownell is only interested in monetary profit, and the assumption that he has no human compassion or that he condones gun violence is very offending. What I’m reading from this article is that I can’t really be a member of your church if I don’t agree with you. I will be having a conversation with my local Episcopalian Church in Marshall County before I decide if this religion is really for me. At least the Catholic Church will still let me be a member and receive Holy Communion. I just cannot teach Sunday School or be an active member of The Mass. And I will not be judged because you assume I, as a supporter of The NRA, condone gun violence and have no empathy for the victims of such. The first thing Stalin & Hitler did was disarm their public. Imagine how The Greatest Generation would never have existed without the ability to arm ourselves. We’d all be wearing swatstikas the Holocost would have continued until all were eliminated, and most likely continued on by finding another race to eliminate.I was looking for a church I could actively participate in and that would accept me.It seems this church is more concerned with politics. As I read on, I see you would most likely object to my political party of choice. I believe in God. And I believe he loves me and doesn’t exclude me. Maybe Episcopalian is not for me.

Afterward, they walked more than three miles, silently and prayerfully, to stand in witness at Brownells in Grinnell, the world’s largest supplier of gun parts and accessories.The service and walk were part of 26 Days of Action Against Gun Violence that has been organized by residents, faith leaders and Grinnell College students and faculty. The organizers hope to engage their neighbor, Pete Brownell, president of the National Rifle Association and CEO of Brownells, in conversation about gun safety and ways to reduce gun violence.“It’s been an organic process,” said Vicky Springer, one of the organizers of the days of action and a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Grinnell. “It started with neighbor talking to neighbor, individuals coming together with broken hearts, really.”And not every town in America has the president of the NRA as a neighbor. When Pete Brownell was elected as NRA president in May, his neighbors felt like there was an opportunity for conversation.The Rev. Wendy Abrahamson, rector at St. Paul’s, said, “After Las Vegas, this all coalesced from different places. Someone asked me, ‘Has anyone ever talked to Pete directly?’ And I went, ‘Huh. That would be kind of respectful towards him as a human being. I’ll try.’”Abrahamson called Brownell’s corporate office and left a message with his secretary to see if he could meet with her and another pastor to work together toward gun safety. Then she waited. After some time went by, she realized they had mutual friends on Facebook, so she sent him a message through Facebook Messenger. Abrahamson said there has been no response.“I had found it difficult to understand why a conversation was not occurring in this community about the NRA, about gun safety, when we had this person right in our community that we could engage with in this way,” said Eliza Willis, a political science professor at Grinnell College. “I realized that there were other people who shared my view, that this was something we should be discussing, especially because he is the president of the NRA and we have a chance to engage in some way.”So, she and others in the group wrote a letter to him as a neighbor, as friend to many people in town, and as a respected member of the community. To them, it seemed like a natural thing to try and have this conversation.Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders conduct a service of remembrance Dec. 10 in Grinnell, Iowa, for victims of gun violence. After the service, the group walked to Brownells, the world’s largest supplier of gun parts and accessories, to stand in prayer. Photo: Meg WagnerJanet Carl, member at First Presbyterian Church in Grinnell said, “I’ve never been a part of an organizing effort that has been quite like this.” Members of the group planned 26 Days of Action Against Gun Violence — one day for every person killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, five years ago by Adam Lanza.The 26 Days of Action Against Gun Violence has included holding discussions, sharing stories, watching NRA videos, making phone calls to elected representatives, and screening “Gunned Down: The Power of the NRA” and “Newtown.”David Wheeler, whose son Ben was murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, came to Grinnell for the Dec. 5 screening of “Newtown” along with the filmmakers. Wheeler also wrote Pete Brownell a letter, asking if they could meet and talk while he was in Grinnell. Wheeler said that Brownell did not respond.The 26 Days also has featured actions that could be taken by individuals and groups, in public and from home, with lots of opportunities to engage in conversation and learn about gun safety and the impact of gun violence.“What’s been extraordinary for me personally is that I really feel an empowerment and my fear has greatly been reduced just by taking action,” said Springer.Iowa Bishop Alan Scarfe preaches at the Interfaith Service of Remembrance Dec. 10 in Grinnell. His wife, Donna Scarfe, was the sign language interpreter for the service. Photo: Meg WagnerThe Dec. 10 Interfaith Service of Remembrance was held at the United Church of Christ in Grinnell and was led by Christian, Jewish and Muslim faith leaders. At the service, the Rt. Rev. Alan Scarfe, bishop of Iowa, said, “Every valley of ignorance and despair must be uplifted. Every mountaintop of fixed positions and fearful hoarding must be brought low. And every crooked road of legislative cat-and-mouse twisting and turning needs to be made straight so everyone can see the glory of God and the glory of a humanity able to learn war no more — turning its spears into pruning hooks and its swords to plowshares.”“What could be more Iowa than that?” he added.After the service, about 100 people joined the 3.2-mile silent walk to the Brownells factory by Interstate 80 in Grinnell. As the sun was beginning to set, they reached the turnoff to the Brownells factory and retail store. There, the group stayed for a while and prayed together. The 26 Days of Action is culminating in Honor with Action, a vigil on Dec. 14 in Central Park in Grinnell.“The thing that means a lot to me in this is that it is 26 days of ACTION. Because, as everyone else is saying, I’m sick of thoughts and prayers,” Abrahamson said. “I feel like this is prayer — what we are doing.”— The Rev.

The Ross Rennie tackle on Brian O’Driscoll

first_imgTuesday Mar 4, 2008 The Ross Rennie tackle on Brian O’Driscoll In the Six Nations last weekend we saw Scotland take on Ireland at Croke Park, in a game that produced some splendid tries and examples of incredible skill . The game also produced this flip tackle by Ross Rennie on Irish captain Brian O’Driscoll. The footage has been highly requested so here it is. O’Driscoll was literally flipped over substitute Rennie’s shoulder, Judo style. The referee saw nothing wrong with it, which technically is probably incorrect considering O’Driscoll’s feet were above his hips and Rennie didn’t lower him to the ground, as the law stipulates you should do. It wasn’t however a proper spear tackle as such, so therefore Rennie got away with it. A lot of refs may have seen it differently though, with a penalty, and perhaps even a yellow card being shown.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Public’s perceptions of fundraising as a career revealed in IoF survey

first_imgPublic’s perceptions of fundraising as a career revealed in IoF survey This second instalment shows making a difference to be the biggest reason people would consider working in fundraising (65%), followed by the feeling that it would be a job to be proud of, and personal fulfilment. Working for an ethical, responsible employer was the fifth most frequently mentioned reason overall, rising to second place for Asian and Muslim respondents, and third for black respondents.People with experience over the past 12 months of fundraising or volunteering were more likely to be interested in working in fundraising, as were women, black respondents, those educated to GCSE level, and 25-34 year olds. Only 36% of people however said they knew something about what is involved in a fundraising career. The main reasons people would not consider it are because the work doesn’t interest them (35%), and because they are happy in their current career (31%). Salary was also an issue for 22%, who felt it would be lower paid than other sectors, while 28% did not think it offered the potential to earn a good income. In addition, 21% said they wouldn’t be interested because they don’t know enough about careers in fundraising, and 21% said it was not a job for people like them.The survey also asked people for their views on what they thought would help people get a job in fundraising. At the top was passion and commitment to causes, and a positive attitude (both 48%), followed by experience of building relationships with a wide range of people (43%), and previous work experience with relevant skills (37%). Almost half (48%) said a university education was not important.The full data set can be downloaded from the IoF site.  335 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis18 Melanie May | 24 September 2019 | News Tagged with: Charity Jobs Institute of Fundraising research Over half – 57% – of the UK public would be proud to work in the charity sector but only a quarter would be interested in working in fundraising, according to Institute of Fundraising research on public perceptions, with reasons for not considering it including not knowing enough about the careers on offer, salary issues, and not feeling it is a job for people like them.Perceptions of fundraising as a career is the second instalment of an IoF commissioned YouGov survey on how the fundraising profession is seen and understood by the public, and particularly at whether age, race, religion, disability, or gender make a difference to how fundraising is perceived.Part one was released earlier this month and looked at what the public thinks about fundraising.

Lessons of the victorious Harvard dining hall strike, Part 2

first_imgThe 750 striking Harvard University Dining Service workers — cooks, dishwashers, servers and cashiers — brought multibillion-dollar Harvard University to its knees on Oct. 25, 2016. After a three-week strike, the university bosses caved, giving the members of UNITE HERE Local 26 even more than they had initially demanded.Most importantly, all the health care takeaways the Harvard Corporation had demanded were off the table. The strike victory holds valuable lessons for the workers and oppressed in the age of global capitalism — particularly now under the Trump administration and the rise of ultra-rightist, racist elements.Workers World contributing editor Martha Grevatt interviewed Chief Steward Ed Childs, a cook and leader in Local 26 for more than 40 years. This is the second in a series of articles based on the interviews where Childs explains how the workers won.Well in advance of the Harvard University Dining Service strike, we knew we would need to build a solidarity coalition to take on the Harvard Corporation. We spent months laying the groundwork. (For Part 1, about strike preparations, go to the strike began the coalition was critical. Harvard Medical School students staged two walkouts in support of the striking HUDS workers. The Student Labor Action Movement played a big role; they organized a dinner for us on campus where faculty, administrators, deans, parents and our workers spoke. Campus environmentalists saw worker health as necessary for a healthy campus environment. The Jewish group Hillel hosted meetings and fed us, and rabbis spoke at our rallies.The LGBTQ student group wrote a long op-ed in the campus newspaper titled “This Strike Is So Gay,” because the fight for health care is so important to their constituency. We in Local 26 have always led by example; we won the first nondiscrimination language on sexual orientation at the university in 1983. Harvard caved in to this demand after we took a strike pledge that year.Students from the Harvard School of Public Health and the medical school were in the forefront because they took their oath as doctors seriously: to not just treat illness in society but to prevent it. How can we prevent illness and promote good health when workers on our campus cannot afford healthcare? they asked.The coalition also brought in the custodians whose contract was almost up; they had similar issues around health insurance and were themselves threatening to strike. In fact, after the HUDS victory, their union, Service Employees Local 32 BJ’ won a good contract that kept health care intact.Harvard Union of Clerical and Technical Workers, the largest union on campus, comprised of 4,500 workers, was poised to join forces with us earlier in the year. When Harvard got wind of that, they intimidated HUCTW and got them to ratify a new contract in May. Although HUCTW has higher fees for various health services in their new contract, management had to cancel plans to impose deductibles to avoid a clerical strike. Clerical workers walked the picket line with us.Members and leaders from the Graduate Student Association, who were filing for union recognition, joined the strike lines.Building broad solidarityWe met with Cambridge and Boston city councils, and they both endorsed the HUDS workers’ struggle — the first time before the strike began and the second during the strike.We knew a striking union has to create activities that promote bonding between workers. We worked with New York UNITE HERE Local 100. They, along with locals in Atlantic City, Hartford and Philadelphia, sent large delegations to one of our biggest rallies. Local 100 expects to wage similar campus campaigns, and the International union is predicting a number of strikes across the country stemming from the Harvard strike. This kind of struggle raises consciousness and encourages militancy.The HUDS unit is the largest in Local 26. When you’re building a strike coalition, you have to be sure your union leadership — of the local and the International — is part of it. I don’t see a strike surviving without the union’s backing.The local did not want to strike, but we knew we had no choice. so we rallied and called for the strike. Then the union leadership had to go along with us, because they couldn’t let Harvard destroy one of their stellar contracts. Losing would have had national repercussions with many contracts coming up. Hotels are becoming very difficult to organize, especially in misnamed “right to work” (for less) states, but universities are wide open.Our group of workers in the local met often in order to steer the strike in a progressive and militant manner.The International brought in full-time paid staff and member organizers from around the country as a support team to do things like write media releases. At first their organizers tried to undo our structure. It was a struggle to have our leaders stay in leadership — issues arose like who was going to give a speech. While we butted heads when staff tried to disempower the coalition, we worked with them. And we succeeded because we had our structure already established. In the end the union’s resources were indispensable.Because we built the coalition the right way, we won!Now we’re engaged in poststrike activism. We met with Islamic students and held a joint forum Feb. 4. There we discussed fighting Islamophobia as well as lessons learned on strike and where we go from here. We put both in the context of the fight against Trump and fascism. We won a huge battle, but the struggle continues every day!Phebe Eckfeldt, Steve Gillis, Martha Grevatt, Steve Kirschbaum, Milt Neidenberg and Minnie Bruce Pratt contributed to this series of articles.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Limerick’s pride of Lions

first_imgEmail Linkedin WhatsApp Previous articleMurder accused remanded in custodyNext articleLimerick junior minister retained admin NewsLocal NewsLimerick’s pride of LionsBy admin – April 23, 2009 343 Facebookcenter_img Print FOR proud Limerick man Paul O’Connell, Tuesday April 21, 2009 will live long in the memory.At 1.30pm in the Sofitel Heathrow Hotel, London, Paul was officially named as the 27th Lions Captain, 11th from Ireland, of the touring British and Irish Lions rugby team. And Limerick roared in approval. His fellow Treaty men in Jerry Flannery, Keith Earls and David Wallace will join him on the eight week tour of South Africa.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Messages of congratulations, led by Mayor John Gilligan, have been pouring in from all over the world.Named to lead a squad of 37 players, O’Connell is joined by 13 other Irish players, including seven Munster colleagues.Indeed, Munster’s eight man party equals the record held by Leicester for the most Lions members from one club. They are, Paul O’Connell, Jerry Flannery, Donncha O’Callaghan, Alan Quinlan, Tomás O’Leary, Ronan O Gara, Keith Earls and David Wallace. On May 30, the Lions will start a 10 game tour of South Africa, which will include three test games against the World Champion Springboks.Speaking to the Limerick Post, O’Connell, made aware of his captaincy seven days in advance, spoke of his pride for Limerick.“Obviously, I am so proud to be from Limerick, I always will be. As you say, to be the first Limerickman to captain the Lions is a huge honour, too. There is a great history of rugby in Limerick and hopefully, we can have a successful tour.“With eight from Munster and four from Limerick, it will be great for the city. It is a great achievement to have so many from the one club, but all that came from hard work over a number of years”.The greatest pre-announcement debate surrounded the choice of captain. Would it be Munster Captain Paul O’Connell or would it be Ireland’s Grand Slam winning chief, Brian O’Driscoll?Lions Tour manager Ian Mc Geechan had this to say to the Limerick Post.“For me, it was all about focus in the forwards. Paul has had a fantastic season both in the Heineken Cup and Six Nations. He has a tremendous amount of respect in the four nations and within this coaching team. When touring South Africa, it is key to have that focal point in the front five. Strong combinations and experience are needed and we have that all over the squad led by Paul”.14 is a record number for Ireland in Lions squads.Of those, two names, once announced, drew intakes of surprise from the assembled journalists and no doubt cries of jubilation from families and friends. Keith Earls’ and Alan Quinlan’s inclusion may come as a surprise to some but not to Munster fans.Captain O’Connell had this to say about the two ‘wild cards’. “Quinny’s family will be delighted. He has had so many close calls with Ireland over the years that this is a great reward.“He is a massively passionate guy. A great character. I think he is absolutely made for the Lions, both on and off the pitch”.Quinlan is joined by Keith Earls. A winner of a Senior Schools cup only three years ago, Earls is a cousin of former Southampton FC player Michael Earls, holder of several international caps..Said his dad Ger, “I had a few pints to celebrate…the party is likely to go on for some time yet”.

Guilty verdict in Chauvin trial could set precedent for policing: Benjamin Crump, civil rights attorney

first_imgStephen Maturen/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — If Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, is found guilty in the killing of George Floyd, it could set a new precedent for policing, said Benjamin Crump, a civil rights attorney representing the families of Floyd and Daunte Wright.“The outcome that we pray for and Derek Chauvin is for him to be held criminally liable for killing George Floyd, because we believe that could be a precedent,” Crump told ABC’s “This Week” co-anchor Martha Raddatz on Sunday. “Finally making America live up to its promise of liberty and justice for all. That means all of us — Black people, Hispanic people, Native people — all of us.“And I am tired of — as many Black people are — tired of hearing when they kill unarmed Black people. I mean, from the local level all the way to the president of the United States they say, ‘It is tragic that Daunte Wright was killed but looting is unacceptable,’” said Crump, who also represented the families of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Breonna Taylor.“What I want the president and everybody to add to that line, Martha, is killing unarmed Black people is unacceptable,” he continued. “We have to send that message to the police, because the crux of the matter is this: I was born Black and I am going to die Black, but police do not kill me because I am Black.”Crump added that congressional action is necessary as the country looks to address the problem of violence toward non-white Americans by police.“We need to get the George Floyd Justice and Policing Act passed to change the culture and the behavior of policing in America, especially as it relates to marginalized minorities — and especially Black people. Because when a Black person is stopped for a traffic violation, it should not end up in a death sentence,” he said.Outside the Chauvin trial, Crump — speaking on behalf of the Wright family — said earlier this week that Kim Potter, the former Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, police officer who resigned after she said she accidentally pulled out her Taser instead of her gun in an interaction with Wright, saw Wright as “expendable.”Looking ahead to the verdict in Chauvin’s trail, Raddatz asked, “If he is found not guilty — as the nation braces for that verdict — what would you say to the people of Minneapolis?”Crump said the country cannot continue to tolerate excessive violence.“I would say, once again the American legal system has broken our heart and we cannot condone this excessive use of force, America. We cannot condone this inhumanity, America. We cannot condone this evil that we saw on that video with Derek Chauvin, when he kept his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nine minutes and twenty-nine seconds. And we have to finally have this racial reckoning, America, because if we don’t, then people are gonna continue to have these emotional protests,” he said.In a separate panel on Sunday, following Crump’s interview, ABC News Chief Legal Analyst Dan Abrams and Channa Lloyd, a civil rights attorney and managing partner at the Cochran Firm, agreed it is highly unlikely Chauvin will be acquitted.“I think those of us who have been watching this case closely, who have been watching all the expert testimony, watched the video, watched the opening statement, et cetera, would be stunned if there was an all-out acquittal where you find 12 jurors who say that he was not guilty,” Abrams said.“In this case the prosecution has set out a very tight case, they have covered a lot of the bases, they were very thorough,” Lloyd said. “I don’t feel the defense brought up experts that were able to combat the information that was given by the state’s experts, and in this case I do not feel we’re going to see an acquittal.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Board considers ethics of advance funding

first_img Senior Editor The debate over how much, if at all, lawyers should be involved in advance funding schemes for their personal injury clients has reached the Bar Board of Governors. And after a vigorous discussion, the board postponed taking action so members can review past drafts of ethics opinions on the subject. The matter was brought to the board at its October 19 meeting by the Board Review Committee on Professional Ethics, which reviewed the appeal of Proposed Advisory Opinion 00-3 from the Professional Ethics Committee. (The BRCPE also presented advertising appeals and other issues to the board.) PAO 00-3 says an attorney may tell a client about the existence of companies that offer advance funding and, with the consent of the client after consultation, may provide confidential information about the case to those companies. While an initial draft of the opinion said the attorney at the client’s request could issue a letter of protection to the funding company, the final opinion passed by the PEC said the attorney could not issue a letter of protection but could honor such a letter executed by the client on his or her own. BRCPE Chair Richard Tanner reported that his committee was recommending restoring the letter of protection section to the advisory opinion. Advance funding companies, which are apparently expanding rapidly both in Florida and nationwide, offer loans to clients secured only by expected recovery in an ongoing personal injury case. Board member David Bianchi said he looked into an advance funding company for a client and was shocked that the annual interest rate was more than 80 percent, and that with other companies it could be 100, 200, and 300 percent. “They get away with it because they tell everyone it’s not a loan, and therefore it’s not an interest rate,” he said. “They say they are buying a piece of the case and only get paid if there’s a recovery. That’s their justification. “We need to think very carefully about what we think lawyers should be able to do. We should then think about appointing a committee to look at how many funding companies are in Florida, what they have done in Florida, how many cases have they been involved in, and what’s been the experiences of the borrowers.” If there have been abuses, Bianchi said, the board might want to approach the legislature about regulating the industry. “We are not here to legislate morality,” board member Louis Kwall countered. “If these are legitimate, lawful companies, what right do we have to interfere in the relationship between one of these companies and a client?” Board member Jesse Diner added, “I personally don’t like people lending money at usurious rates. . . but I don’t think that’s for us to decide here.” Board member Chobee Ebbets said lawyers should not issue the letters of protection, arguing, “If I give a letter of protection to that company, I am buying into that.. . . I would never issue a letter of protection because I feel it is in direct conflict with a client’s best interest.” “This activity borders on the outer edge of appropriate conduct,” board member John Cardillo said. The board approved a motion by board member Kelly Overstreet Johnson to table the issue until it reviews prior drafts of PAO 00-3. On other matters, the BRCPE presented recommendations on three advertising appeals, and all were approved by the board: • The board and BRCPE said it was okay for a law firm to include in its ads the statement, “If you have been involved in an accident, you need an attorney fighting for your rights.” Bar staff and the Standing Committee on Advertising had found the “you need an attorney” phrase potentially misleading. • The board and BRCPE upheld the standing committee which said a Yellow Pages ad featuring a photograph of the advertising attorney must be submitted to the Bar for review and the $250 late review fee paid. The attorney had argued the review and fee were not needed. • The board and BRCPE upheld the standing committee that the use of a non-law firm member’s voice in an electronic ad violated Bar rules because the ad was not, as contended by the law firm, a public service ad. Tanner also reported to the board that at its November 29 meeting, the BRCPE will revise existing procedures clarifying that the board can request ethics opinions from the Professional Ethics Committee. The Bar Procedures for Ruling on Questions of Ethics were vague on that point. He noted that the proposed procedure will maintain Bar members’ ability to request opinions about their own prospective actions. The BRCPE considered further expanding who could ask questions of the PEC, but decided that “members with their fact patterns and the board raising specific questions is the best approach without throwing it wide open.” The issue arose after the board several years ago requested the PEC to look at issues surrounding insurance companies’ use of staff and outside counsel. After the PEC issued three opinions which were appealed to the board, the board declined to act because of the vagueness of the procedures.

Two-tier plan for paralegals taken one step further

first_imgTwo-tier plan for paralegals taken one step further June 15, 2006 Regular News Approved by the board, it’s now before the court Gary Blankenship Senior Editor A two-tier plan for regulating paralegals has been approved by The Florida Bar Board of Governors and will be forwarded to the Supreme Court for its review.The board, at its June 2 meeting in Key West, approved the proposal from the Special Committee to Study Paralegal Regulation. The committee, made up of attorneys, paralegals, and legal educators, has been working on the issue since last August.“I present this to the board as a well-reasoned and a well-compromised plan,” said board member Ross Goodman, chair of the special committee. “The paralegels and attorneys worked well together to come up with a very good program.”“The general description is this sets two tiers, one for paralegals as they presently exist [in Bar rules] and the second tier is for what we call registered paralegals,” he added. “The closest analogy [for registered paralegals] would be to board certification [for lawyers].”Board members initially received the report from the special committee at their April 7 meeting. The proposal would create Chapter 20 in the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar.Under the two-tier system, the first tier would encompass paralegals based on the definition in Bar Rule 10-2.1, as someone with education, training, or work experience who, under the supervision of a lawyer, performs delegated substantive work for which the lawyer is responsible, Goodman said.Tier two paralegals would have to meet education and experience requirements or be certified by the National Association of Legal Assistants or the National Federation of Paralegal Associations and then could hold themselves out as “Florida Registered Paralegals.” They would also have to meet continuing education requirements, he said.The proposal’s grandfathering provision would allow paralegals who can show five years of substantial experience, but who don’t meet the education or certification requirements, to become registered paralegals. That provision is limited to the first three years of the program.The grandfathering provision was necessary because, “You’ve got some paralegals who have been doing it for 20 years and that paralegal is more qualified than any 20 attorneys in town on that one area of law, but does not meet the other qualifications to be a registered paralegal,” he said.Goodman said the proposed rule also creates a disciplinary system and a code of ethics for paralegals. It was also reviewed and approved by the Disciplinary Review, Program Evaluation and Rules committees.In response to a question, he said the rule will probably need more work, such as setting standards for paralegal programs whose graduates will qualify to be registered paralegals. That will be needed, he said, because there are many “fly-by-night” paralegal education providers.The special committee began meeting last summer after bills were introduced in the 2005 Regular Session of the Florida Legislature that proposed a regulatory scheme for paralegals. Those bills, pushed by paralegal organizations, would have had regulation preformed by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation.That legislation specified that courts, when awarding fees, could only award paralegal fees for services performed by state-licensed paralegals.Lawmakers agreed not to push those bills when the Bar said it would study the issues, and the paralegal committee, appointed by President Alan Bookman, was the result.The committee met throughout the fall and had a public hearing. It initially proposed creating a Bar section for paralegals, which could then study further issues related to paralegal regulation.But paralegal members of the committee said it didn’t go far enough in recognizing the training and accomplishments of paralegals and the committee agreed to reconsider that recommendation.The committee then came up with the two-tier plan, which attempts to meet the needs of both lawyers and paralegals.retaining the definition of paralegals based on the language in Chapter 10 of Bar rules, it allows lawyers to retain control of who is considered a paralegal in their law firms. And by setting standards to be a “Florida Registered Paralegal” it encourages paralegals to meet minimum education, training, and continuing education standards — and law firms to encourage their paralegals to meet those standards.The proposal as adopted by the board must be reviewed by the Supreme Court in a rule amendment petition.center_img Two-tier plan for paralegals taken one step furtherlast_img read more

COVID-19 poses challenges for Indonesia’s female peacekeepers

first_imgUN Secretary-General António Guterres said that women held a central role in UN peacekeeping operations because they had greater access to local communities, improved the protection of civilians and promoted human rights in the line of duty.But the outbreak threatens to upend their most vital work.As a civil military coordination (CIMIC) officer embedded with UNIFIL, First Lt. Rima Eka Tiara Sari is used to interacting with the local community, but now she is mostly coordinating remotely with local authorities and nongovernmental organizations because of the pandemic.“We still do [border patrols] while following protocols like wearing masks, using hand sanitizer and gloves,” Rima told reporters in a virtual briefing on Wednesday, hosted by the UN Information Center in Jakarta. In many of the world’s conflict regions where health may be one of the first casualties, the coronavirus poses a discernible threat to the local population.This is largely the case in south Lebanon, where sporadic skirmishes still occur at the border with Israel, and the only medical facilities are located at the compound of the United Nations peacekeeping mission.The COVID-19 outbreak has had the unintended consequence of putting an end to all direct contact with the Lebanese people, a vital aspect to the work female peacekeepers do, according to Indonesian peacekeepers with the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL). “But other activities like the various [civilian] training programs are postponed until the COVID-19 outbreak ends,” added the 37-year-old psychology graduate from Semarang, Central Java.UNIFIL was formed in 1978 to oversee the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Lebanon and to assist the Lebanese government in restoring its authority. Among its operational activities is patrolling along the “Blue Line” border demarcation between Lebanon and Israel, established by the UN in 2000.Another Indonesian UNIFIL operative, Second Sgt. Yazella Agustin, also lamented that the outbreak had greatly reduced her interaction with civilians.“We can only contact them by phone to ask them about the latest situation, whether it is a problem caused by the coronavirus, an economic situation or other things,” Yazella said at Wednesday’s press briefing.Many medical workers on the forefront of the COVID-19 response are putting their own health at risk to protect the Lebanese people and the UN peacekeepers stationed there. But even such crucial services had been forced to stop, said First Sgt. Imakulata Ngamel, an Indonesian Air Force nurse stationed with the UNIFIL’s Indonesian battalion. “We can no longer accept local patients,” she told the briefing.Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi on Thursday reiterated the nation’s concerns about the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on countries in conflict, that Indonesia was committed to upholding any and all efforts to resolve conflict and build peace.Earlier this month, the minister noted that the already vulnerable situation in conflict countries had “now worsened […] due to limited health infrastructure, fragile security, challenging economic situations and humanitarian conditions”.According to data on May 29 compiled by statistics site Worldometer, 1,168 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in Lebanon, with 26 total deaths. While 699 people have recovered, the country’s economy has been hit hard, with businesses closing down and people losing their jobs.Separately, the Foreign Ministry’s director general for multilateral cooperation, Febrian Ruddyard, said that the safety and security of Indonesian peacekeepers were of utmost priority.“During Indonesia’s presidency of the UN Security Council last year, we specifically raised the issue of the safety and security of peacekeepers through training and capacity building,” he said.Febrian, who leads Indonesia’s Peace Maintenance Mission Coordination Team (TKMPP), said that the government was closely monitoring the latest developments in the field while ensuring that all missions followed the UN’s COVID-19 health protocols.He said that Indonesia was also deliberating a draft UN Security Council resolution on managing the pandemic amid the challenging conditions in conflict areas.“We are paying very close attention to our peacekeepers because they are our assets that we lend to the world, in this case to the UN,” said Febrian.Friday is the 20th anniversary of the International Day of UN Peacekeepers. The day is paying special tribute to female peacekeepers with this year’s theme, “Women in Peacekeeping: A Key to Peace”.UN Undersecretary-General for Peace Operations Jean-Pierre Lacroix said in a statement that “ensuring women’s meaningful, equal and full participation in peace operations, as well as in peace and political processes, is key to protecting civilians and building durable peace”.However, women represent just 6 percent of all uniformed military, police, justice and corrections personnel in field missions, according to the UN.As a nonpermanent member of the UN Security Council, Indonesia has advocated for women’s participation in peace processes with an aim to increase the deployment of female peacekeepers to more than 3 percent at present.Out of the 2,852 military and police officers Indonesia has deployed to nine UN peacekeeping operations around the world, only 159 are women.Topics :last_img read more

Saratoga to expand investment portfolio amid stock market losses

first_imgThe figure was similar to last year’s investment allocation of $100 million, according to a previous report by Kontan.The investment firm, backed by former Jakarta deputy governor and 2019 vice presidential contender Sandiaga Uno, currently has 15 companies in its portfolio.They including publicly listed companies like coal miner PT Adaro Energy, telecommunication tower firm PT Tower Bersama Infrastructure and automotive firm PT Mitra Pinashtika Mustika (MPM), stocks of which also took a severe hit in the pandemic.Since the beginning of this year, Adaro lost 33.76 percent of its value as of Thursday, while Tower Bersama and MPM share prices declined by 4.88 percent and 24.06 percent, respectively.Saratoga’s portfolio also includes several privately-owned companies like hospital firm PT Famon Awal Bros Sedaya and pharmaceutical firm PT Deltomed Laboratories.The firm’s finance director, Lany D. Wong, stated that the company remained confident on its investees’ stock performance this year, as some of those share prices had regained strength amid the gradual market recovery in April and May.“We are also confident about our investees’ financial performance, as they have good underlying,” said Lany.Meanwhile, Saratoga received approval from its shareholders to disburse Rp 149.2 billion in dividends this year, equal to Rp 55 per share, from its 2019 profit, she continued.The company pocketed Rp 7.37 trillion in net profit in 2019 as it booked Rp 6.23 trillion in net gains on investments. It also booked Rp 2.84 billion on dividends, interest and investment income last year.  Saratoga Investama recorded investment losses at Rp 5.9 trillion (US$418.8 million) in this year’s first quarter, a turnaround from Rp 1.39 trillion in profit it booked in the same period last year, as mark-to-market share prices plunged. The Jakarta Composite Index (JCI), the main gauge of Indonesian share prices, has dropped more than 21 percent since the beginning of the year, fuelled by investors’ fear over the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy.The company’s natural resources stocks portfolio recorded the steepest fall in the first quarter this year with Rp 3 trillion in losses against Rp 509.8 billion in the same period in 2019. In general, it focuses its investment on infrastructure, natural resources and consumer sectors.The company would continue investing in the three sectors, while it expected to score the new investment deals in the next six to 12 months, as it was currently conducting due diligence, Devin said.“We are allocating around $50 million to $100 million for this year’s investments,” said Devin. Publicly listed investment firm PT Saratoga Investama Sedaya plans to expand its investment portfolio after losses sustained in the stock market crash induced by the COVID-19 pandemic.The company’s investment director, Devin Wirawan, said on Wednesday that Saratoga had been assessing several companies and was determining the timing to purchase the stocks.“As an active investment company, we will actively buy new stocks when share prices fall as many of them become more affordable for us,” he told the press during a virtual press briefing, adding that the company would also remain cautious in expanding its portfolio.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Roberto Martinez enjoying working with Romelu Lukaku as agent opens door to move

first_img Mino Raiola reportedly told a French radio station they had been given Martinez’s blessing for Lukaku to leave at the right price amid rumours of interest from Paris St Germain. But the Spaniard was unwilling to go into the issue, saying: ” I’m not here to try to do the job of agent. “I’m not going to entertain any sort of rumours and speculation. I have to do that during the transfer window, against my wishes, so as you can understand I’m quite happy now not to go into any comments.” Club-record signing Lukaku, 22, has made a good start to the season after an up-and-down first campaign as a permanent Everton player, scoring seven goals in 13 appearances. Martinez said: “With Romelu, it has been a joy to see him growing and developing from a very young age. “He’s had a very important role with us and now I feel he’s in the perfect moment to kick on and even take more responsibility on the pitch. “All that matters to everyone at Everton is Romelu can keep fulfilling that role, keep enjoying his football and being very important for the team.” Martinez was speaking at his pre-match press conference, the day after Everton bade an emotional farewell to Howard Kendall. Thousands of fans and Everton figures past and present attended Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral and Goodison Park to pay tribute to the 69-year-old, who died earlier this month. Martinez hopes the memories of Kendall’s glory years can inspire his players as they look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League against Sunderland on Sunday. Press Association The Everton boss said: “I thought it was an incredible event. We were all so proud and touched by the incredible reaction and the support that everyone showed around Howard’s career, Howard’s footprint at our football club, and then obviously to pay the respects to an incredible legend and an Everton giant. “There are great moments to sit back a little bit as a player, and everyone who has the privilege to represent Everton at this time has a unique source of inspiration. “You’re looking back at those big seasons, big moments full of emotion. Clearly for the players and everyone it’s the perfect inspiration to go forward.” Seamus Coleman is a major doubt for the match because of a stomach bug but his fellow full-back Leighton Baines is nearing a return after almost six months out. The 30-year-old has undergone two ankle operations but was set to return to full training on Friday along with midfielder Muhamed Besic, who has made only one Premier League appearance this season. Gareth Barry is back in contention following suspension, with Martinez set to revert to a more familiar line-up after ringing the changes for the Capital One Cup win over Norwich in midweek. Roberto Martinez talked up Romelu Lukaku’s importance to Everton following claims from his agent that the Toffees would sell if the right offer came in. last_img read more

Football News More than 250 applicants for Indian football team coach’s job

first_imgNew Delhi: The Indian football team’s spirited showings in recent times seem to be having a ripple effect with the position of the men’s coach attracting over 250 applications, an unprecedented number that also includes some well-known names from Europe.The post has been left vacant since Stephen Constantine resigned following the Indian team’s failure to make the knockouts of the AFC Asian Cup after coming close to doing so.Contrary to speculations doing the rounds, All India Football Federation (AIFF) sources categorically denied that they are not exactly looking to recruit a high-profile name. In the recent past, AIFF general secretary Kushal Das had also said that they would appoint a coach based on the team’s requirements and not get carried away by big names.The list of applicants also includes coaches from the Indian Super League and I-League.”The big names doing the rounds need not necessarily fulfil the criteria of the AIFF. Early next week the concerned committee will make a short-list and the candidates would then be interviewed by the technical committee, and based on its recommendations, the executive committee would make the appointment from among the final list,” a well-placed AIFF source said.Established names doing the rounds are Italian Giovanni De Biasi, Hakan Ericson of Sweden, France’s Raymond Domnech and England’s Sam Allardyce.While these are undoubtedly big names, the AIFF has also received applications from people who do not have the credentials and licence.The deadline for applying for the top job ended on March 29.Among others, Bengaluru FC’s highly successful former coach Albert Roca has also emerged as the frontrunner for the job, with many national team players favouring his appointment.Under Roca, Bengaluru FC played four finals in his two seasons in charge – making the final of the AFC Cup in 2016, the Federation Cup in 2017 and the ISL and Super Cup in 2018.The team won the Federation Cup and the Super Cup, but missed out on the AFC Cup and the ISL titles.

New Eagles Coach, Rohr, Expected in Spain for NPFL All Star,…

first_img“As you know, part of our understanding with the new coach is that he will be on ground to work and follow up on our players in the domestic league. During negotiations with him, we agreed that since we have a crop of the NPFL players embarking on the LaLiga tour, it will be necessary for him to look in on them during the friendlies.“So, we are expecting him, after playing Valencia on Wednesday (yesterday) to join us on Friday, when we proceed to play Malaga in the Carranza Cup competition,” Green said.Throwing more light on the plan, Chairman of the League Management Company (LMC) and 2nd Vice President of the NFF, Shehu Dikko, pointed out that it makes a lot of sense for the Super Eagles coach to join in on the LaLiga tour.“The head coach of the Super Eagles, Salisu Yusuf, whom he will work with is here. Other coaches who have been involved in the Super a Eagles are here. The back room staff of the Super Eagles whom he will work with are here. Then, the crop of the NPFL players who may form the core of our home-based team is here, so this tour presents the coach a hands-on platform to begin to interact and plan with his team, to hit the ground running.“It makes great sense for him to be here.

Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun lands on disabled list with strained oblique

first_imgANAHEIM — Kole Calhoun is on the disabled list thanks to a strained right oblique. Might the time off help the Angels outfielder break out of his season-long hitting slump?“Maybe,” Manager Mike Scioscia said Saturday. “That’s not the way you want to get your break, though.”The Angels placed Calhoun on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Friday, taking the outfielder off their lineup card in the midst of the worst hitting performance of his career. Through 173 plate appearances this year, Calhoun has a slash line of .145/.195/.179 — numbers far below his career average of .254/.321/.410.Sign up for Home Turf and get 3 exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.The 30-year-old is only three years removed from winning the Gold Glove Award, a season that also saw him post career highs with 83 RBIs and 26 home runs. He has 11 RBIs this year, going yard just once. Scioscia said Calhoun felt tightness in his right oblique when the Angels were getting to ready to leave Detroit earlier this week.“He was in the cage working a lot,” Scioscia said. “I think some things just stiffened up. It’s just something we need to address right now. … There’s no timetable yet, but hopefully it’s not too severe.”The Angels also optioned right-hander Jaime Barría (5-1, 2.48), who pitched six shutout innings against the Rangers on Friday night. He could be recalled again for a June 12 game in Seattle, when the team will again need a sixth starting pitcher.The club recalled Kaleb Cowart and Michael Hermosillo from Triple-A Salt Lake, starting the latter in right field against the Rangers on Saturday and batting him ninth.SURGERY GIVES SHOEMAKER CLARITY Shoemaker also had surgery last August to relieve radial nerve compression in his forearm. The right-hander pitched 5-2/3 innings on March 31 before lingering discomfort forced him onto the disabled list.ALSOScioscia tried to downplay any lingering tensions from Friday night, when a slide by the Rangers’ Rougned Odor resulted in a left leg gash for Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons. “It’s kind of an unfortunate incident,” Scioscia said. “But it’s past us, I think. There was a little bit of veer on the slide.” …Infielder Zack Cozart, who had an MRI on his left forearm Friday, is “progressing quickly” according to Scioscia, and could be nearing a return to the lineup. He has not played since May 29. …The Angels held a pre-game ceremony for Albert Pujols, emblazoning the number “3000” in the outfield to commemorate the slugger’s recent career hits milestone. Pujols was also presented with a picture of himself made of 9,858 screws, representing the number of at-bats he needed to reach 3,000 hits.

GVL Begins Rehiring Former Employees

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has announced that Golden Veroleum-Liberia (GVL) has agreed to begin rehiring former employees laid off as a result of the May 26 riot there. She granted Executive Clemency to three inmates at the Sinoe County prison and announced the venues of the next two Independence anniversary celebrations covering the duration of her administration.En route to Monrovia, President Sirleaf along with the World Bank –Liberia Country Manager, Ms. Inguna Dobraja, dedicated the Kingston Weagba Public School situated in Tarjourwon District, Sinoe County.According to an Executive Mansion release, the President, spoke to journalists before her departure from Greenville, Sinoe County following the successful co-hosting of the 168thIndependence Anniversary.She informed journalists that GVL has agreed to government’s request to start the rehiring of 50 of its former employees beginning last Monday, July 28 2015. “As I leave Greenville, they will go back to their jobs and the process of adding numbers of re-employed people will continue as we work with them to implement the security arrangement which is very important for their operation,” she indicated.President Sirleaf said government had been consulting with GVL because of the May 26 incident that resulted to people not only going to prison but also the layoff of all GVL staff. The company sought assurances for its security to prevent a recurrence of what happened two months ago.Government assured GVL that the Liberia National Police will speed up the plan to work with them to ensure that LNP sets up in the communities the right kind of security arrangements to protect the citizens and the company.In another development, citing her constitutional rights as President of the Republic of Liberia, President Sirleaf instructed the Superintendent of Sinoe County, Mr. Roosevelt Quiah, to work with prison authorities to release three inmates. They are Amos Tarpeh 47, who was charged for arson, convicted and has been serving a prison sentence since June 28, 2013, David Tarpeh (68), charged with the same offence and serving a sentence during the same period and the only female, Baby Girl Togba (25), who was charged with assault and convicted. She has served two years of her sentence.“Mr. Superintendent, you will please ensure that these three persons are released from prison with the advice to them that we expect them now to be good citizens, to abide by the law and ensure that they do not get into acts that would lead them back into a situation from which we have just freed them,” President Sirleaf directed.On the hosts of next year’s Independence Anniversary, the President named Maryland, River Gee and Grand Gedeh as the next co-hosts. She urged them to begin their preparation immediately. “Don’t wait until June of next year,” she warned.She indicated that government will support the construction of some of the facilities in the counties in preparation for the Independence celebrations, but also encouraged citizens of the three counties to initiate individual development projects in their counties of origin.Madam Sirleaf reiterated that the spirit of rotating the Independence Anniversary is not only for government to bring development to the people but to inspire the people from those counties to go back home and do something for their people.President Sirleaf thanked the authorities and people of Sinoe and Grand Kru Counties for the warm reception, fullest cooperation and excellent hospitality offered including the largest number of diplomatic representation to the country. On the impression the diplomats left with, she said, “They all left from here very pleased. They had a very good time and I’m sure that this is going to strengthen our relationship with the countries which they represent.”She expressed appreciation to all Liberians – most especially political leaders, non-governmental organizations, religious leaders, among others– who attended especially the Thanksgiving and Intercessory Service in Barclayville, Grand Kru County using their own resources amid the difficult circumstances.Meanwhile, en route to Monrovia, President Sirleaf along with the World Bank –Liberia Country Manager, Ms. Inguna Dobraja dedicated the Kingston Weagba Public School situated in Tarjourwon District, Sinoe County.In Sinoe County, under this project funded by the Global Partnership for Education and the World Bank, two schools have been completed while another is undergoing construction.The Ministry of Education is constructing 41 schools across the country while 27 of them have already been completed including the Kingston Weagba Public School. The remaining 14 are at various stages and a majority is nearing completion.The newly dedicated Kingston Weagba complex includes a library, computer lab, latrines for boys and girls, ramps and rails for the disabled, teachers’ housing, kitchen and cafeteria, administration building, two wells and a football field.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Less than 12% of oil revenue for Guyanese

first_imgWith optimism high about oil and gas production in Guyana being inevitable and much talk about the tremendous economic benefit this can bring to Guyana, many may be disappointed to learn that, according to sources, the country will receive less than 12 per cent of oil revenue when production starts within the next few years.According to sources, Guyana’s chunk of any oil revenue was pegged at less than 12 per cent. ExxonMobil anticipates it will begin pumping oil by 2020 – about 100,000 barrels per day in the initial stages.The Government was expected to renegotiate the exploration contract with ExxonMobil, but what is not known is if this 12 per cent is what was agreed to initially when this contact was inked 17 years ago or what was derived from the renegotiation process.When contacted, Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman said he was travelling in an emailed response and did not respond to Guyana Times’ follow-up email for a comment on the issue.In July, Finance Minister Winston Jordan had insisted that he requested a review of the contract with ExxonMobil, since this was Government’s way of ensuring that Guyana got the best possible deal from the extraction of oil when production began.“At the end of the day… you have to say whether we are doing what is best for the interest of the national population and I can tell you we are indeed doing that. A 2009 agreement or 2006 agreement or whenever the agreement was originally made was at a time when there was no discovery of anything, now there is oil,” Minister Jordan had said.While there has been much talk from the Government about the potential of oil revenues to transform Guyana, there has been very little information on what exactly is the Government’s share of the earnings.Already Guyanese were told not to expect too many jobs in the oil and gas industry here, as most of the jobs will be for foreigners with the requisite expertise.On May 20, 2015, ExxonMobil announced a significant oil discovery in the Stabroek Block with its Liza 1 well hitting more than 295 feet of high-quality oil-bearing sandstone reservoirs. Then, there was a second announcement in June 2016 that the drilling results from the Liza 2 well, the second exploration well in the Stabroek Block, located some 120 miles offshore Guyana, confirmed a “world-class discovery” of oil with a recoverable resource of between 800 million and 1.4 billion oil-equivalent barrels. Exxon’s Liza 3 well was spud last month and that result is expected in coming weeks.ExxonMobil Corp was recently fined a whopping US$74 billion for underpaying royalties in the central African nation of Chad where the company has been drilling for 15 years.According to international reports on the mega fine by Chad courts, the amount is about five times more than that country’s Gross Domestic Product, which the World Bank estimates at US$13 billion. The High Court in the capital, N’Djamena, announced its ruling on October 5 in response to a complaint from the Chad Finance Ministry that a consortium led by ExxonMobil had not met its tax obligations. The court also demanded the Texas-based oil giant pay US$819 million in overdue royalties.last_img read more

Malaika Arora spotted with Arjun Kapoor: All you need to know about their rumoured affair

first_imgShe is separated, and he is single. That’s enough to set tongues wagging. If their closeness has raised eyebrows, their friendship has been questioned. Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora’s proximity has been under the radar for some time now. In fact, their closeness has been attributed as one of the reasons behind Malaika and Arbaaz Khan’s split. But that’s just a rumour, or at least Arbaaz and Malaika say so.When after 18 years of marriage, once-upon-a-time happy couple Malaika and Arbaaz decided to call it quits, their fans were in for a shock. And it was then the name of Arjun made way to the juicy columns of tabloids. More than often, Arjun’s name was taken in the same breath as that of Malaika-Arbaaz’s separation.  Soon enough, the rumours of an affair between the two started doing the rounds. In fact, buzz has it that Boney Kapoor had asked Arjun to stay away from Malaika for some time because he didn’t want his son to rub Salman Khan the wrong way. The Ki and Ka did pay heed to his dad’s advice and stayed away from Malaika for some time. But the actor soon decided to throw caution to wind when he was spotted outside Malaika’s house at wee hours of the night last year. After her separation with Arbaaz, Malaika has been living in Tuscany Heights with their son Arhaan. While Arjun’s team had apparently vehemently denied the rumour, the reports of them rekindling their romance spread like wildfire.advertisementMalaika later cleared the air and in an interview to DNA said, “Arjun is a very good friend of mine. But people give a very different meaning to it, which isn’t true.”In fact, in an official statement Malaika and Arbaaz said, “We are not separated because of a third random person, like there were stories of a friendship between a businessman and Malaika.”But that did not lead to the rumours dying down. While the two decided to keep a low profile, they kept on meeting at various events on and off. However, it’s been a while since the two were spotted together.But it all changed this weekend when Arjun and Malaika were seen under the same roof. The rumoured lovebirds attended a party in Mumbai on Saturday.While Malaika looked stunning in a white shirt and blue top, Arjun sported a casual look. However, the two carefully avoided being photographed together.(Photos: Yogen Shah) ALSO READ: Has Arjun Kapoor’s father asked him to stay away from Malaika Arora?

According to expected points — a metric that estimates how many points a team should have earned from each game — Jürgen Klopp’s men have collected 12.6 more points than was expected from them, more than any other team this season. Datablog As if football fans needed any more drama this week, Liverpool and Manchester City will battle it out for Premier League glory on Sunday. It will be the ninth time the title has been decided on the season’s final day since the Premier League’s inception in 1992-93. City were involved in the closest finish to date in 2012, claiming their first title after two stoppage-time goals meant they pipped Manchester United on goal difference. United’s 89 points, would have been enough to secure the title in 14 other seasons.Further history will be made on Sunday: never before has a team recorded 90 points or more in the Premier League and not been crowned champions. It’s more common elsewhere in Europe – Barcelona and Real Madrid have finished second in La Liga with at least 90 points a combined seven times since 1993, and Napoli finished behind Juventus last season despite reaching 91 points. Liverpool’s sensational comeback against Barcelona in the Champions League this week showed how strong they have been at Anfield this season. A win against Wolves will extend their home unbeaten streak in the league to 40 games. Only Chelsea have a longer streak – 86 games between 2004 and 2008. City, though, have been even better. They will finish this season with the most points at home. Share on WhatsApp Liverpool Share on Twitter Liverpool and City have been embroiled in a thrilling race for most of the season, one that will remind fans on Merseyside of the last time they came this close to winning the title. With just three games left in the 2013-14 season, Liverpool held a five-point lead at the top of the table. But a Steven Gerrard slip against Chelsea and then a three-goal collapse against Crystal Palace allowed City to beat them at the last.Liverpool were reeled in this season during a six-game stretch between January and March, in which Jürgen Klopp’s side dropped eight points. That came after a 2-1 defeat by City in the first game of the new year, Liverpool’s only loss of the season. A win would have given them a 10-point lead at the top.center_img Share on LinkedIn Share on Facebook Share via Email Manchester City features Premier League Share on Pinterest Reuse this contentlast_img read more

Rail ticket scam After nabbing touts now role of insiders under scanner

first_imgNew Delhi: After launching its biggest crackdown on railway ticket agents and touts, the Special Intelligence Branch of the Railway Protection Force (RPF) is now probing the role of insiders involved in the racket which runs into several crores. The RPF has sought details from the commercial department of the railways about the real-time data of e-tickets. However, the crucial data is yet to be shared with the investigating agency. Sources said that once the data relating to the booking of e-tickets and payment channels of various ticket agents across the country are made available, a clearer picture of the nationwide ‘Tatkal’ ticket racket will emerge. When asked about the involvement of insiders, or lower staff in the racket, the Director General RPF, Arun Kumar, said: “It’s a matter of investigation. I cannot share any details at this stage.” Sources said Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has appreciated RPF’s investigation, called Operation Thunder, into the ticket fraud. The Minister has given the go-ahead to initiate action if any insider is involved in the racket. The RPF rounded up more than 405 touts from raids conducted in 205 cities and towns relating to the booking of Tatkal Seva and e-ticketing. During the course of investigation, it was discovered that most of the ticket agents and touts use specific software to fraudulently book e-tickets under Tatkal Seva. The tickets are later sold to passengers at high rates. The RPF and its intelligence branch were gathering evidence related to ticket frauds for the past few months. Sources in the RPF said a software, ‘ANMS/Red Mirchi’, has been seized from Kota, Rajasthan, which was being used to hack into the Tatkal facility offered by the IRCTC, which is now being rectified. According to an official of the RPF, 387 user IDs under which these tickets were booked frequently have been blacklisted and the tickets have been deactivated. RPF has also instructed all zonal railways to continue such raids in their areas to mount pressure on the touts.last_img read more

first_img Login/Register With: Advertisement For people in northern countries such as Canada, summer is extra special, our reward for getting through the long, dark winter months.That’s why we throw ourselves into its fleeting months with abandon. We crowd patios, head out on road trips, shed layers of clothing, fill parks and beaches, and take the art of cottaging to a whole new level.And, of course, music is essential to all of it. Facebook Shawn Mendes? Carly Rae Jepson? Justin Bieber? Lights? Whose song will be crowned ‘song of the summer’ for 2019? (Jeff Spicer/Getty Images) Every year, one song emerges from the pack to claim the title of song of the summer. In 2012, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call me Maybe” wore the crown, so it’s no surprise that two tracks from her recent album, Dedicated, made this year’s list, alongside recent hits from Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Alessia Cara, Lights and others.Below, find our picks for this year’s top Canadian contenders.Which Canadian song is soundtracking your summer? Let us know at @CBCMusic.‘Julien,’ Carly Rae JepsenThe opening moments of Carly Rae Jepsen’s last album, Emotion, are seared into my memory. That bright burst of saxophone on “Run Away With Me” will forever remind me of summer 2015, when I shouted the words to that song at the top of my lungs at every given opportunity. In some ways, Jepsen has gifted us another memorable introduction on her latest release, Dedicated.The album opens with “Julien” and its squelching synth sounds are subtler than its predecessor, but it fits perfectly with the “chill disco” vision she originally had for this album. Whereas “Run Away With Me” was a euphoric declaration of love, “Julien” is about being hung up on a past fling as Jepsen confesses, “Another bad dream where you were running away/ I’m forever haunted by our time.” Sure, it sounds like a bummer, but it also has an incredible way of unearthing butterflies buried deep in the crevices of your heart. This song makes the act of pining feel blissful instead of painful. Whoever your Julien is, Jepsen’s new song spins an old thorn into a blooming fantasy that you can spend all summer getting lost in.— Melody Lau‘If I Can’t Have You,’ Shawn MendesWasting no time, this song hits you with the chorus right off the bat, as if to say, “You may as well learn it now; you know you’ll be singing it all summer.”center_img Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Twitterlast_img read more

Notley says Kenney rail cancellation plan forgoes jobs leaves oil in ground

CALGARY, Alta. — Alberta NDP Leader Rachel Notley says the United Conservative Party’s budget plan will leave oil in the ground, limit job creation and cost the province $2.2 billion in royalties.Notley says UCP Leader Jason Kenney needs to account for lost revenue in his budget platform, since he would cancel the government’s plan to get more oil to market by leasing rail cars.Kenney has said the $3.7-billion lease deal doesn’t make financial sense.Notley will get a chance to put her concerns to Kenney directly in the leaders’ debate Thursday.Her campaign team has confirmed she will join three other party leaders in the televised forum.Voters go to the polls on April 16.Notley commented on Kenney’s budget plan Monday while in Calgary on Monday as the election campaign nears its midpoint.Notley told reporters the rail lease deal will move an additional 120,000 barrels a day.“Not only will this investment make a $2.2-billion profit for Albertans, it will help get people back to work,” she said.“It will help us get our production up so we can bring curtailment to an end sooner, and it will do so of course without affecting (rail) shipments of our agricultural goods.”Since the start of the year, Notley’s government has also mandated production cuts in oil for large producers to reduce a widening gap in prices that threatened layoffs or similar drastic industry countermeasures.The Canadian Press read more

Senior UN official laments lack of progress in IsraeliPalestinian peace process

20 December 2011The realization of a two-State solution for Israelis and Palestinians has not advanced, with violent incidents erupting at a worrying rate over the past month, a senior United Nations official warned today. “As the year draws to a close, the situation on the ground is deteriorating and the path towards peace remains dangerously uncertain,” Oscar Fernandez-Taranco, Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs, told the Security Council during a monthly briefing on the situation in the Middle East.“We must not allow these negative dynamics to prevail – too much is at stake. Our challenge remains to assist the parties to overcome them,” he said, citing the need to de-escalate the situation, return to direct talks with serious proposals on borders and security, and to stop provocations.Direct talks stalled in late September last year after Israel refused to extend its freeze on settlement activity in the occupied Palestinian territory. That decision prompted Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to withdraw from direct talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which had only resumed a few weeks earlier after a two-year hiatus.“The realization of the two-State solution has not advanced, eroding hopes and underscoring the urgent need for both sides to engage without further delay into serious substantive negotiations to resolve all permanent status issues,” said Mr. Fernandez-Taranco.The past month witnessed a series of developments that are cause for “continued serious concern,” he said, noting the announcement of several new settlement constructions, the demolition of 57 Palestinian structures in the West Bank, an increase in settler violence, and over 300 Israeli military operations in the West Bank.Gaza and southern Israel again witnessed “a dangerous deterioration” in the security situation, he added. During the reporting period, 45 projectiles were fired from Gaza into Israel, while the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) conducted nine incursions and 13 air strikes.“We condemn in the strongest terms any indiscriminate firing of projectiles towards civilian areas and call on Israel to show maximum restraint,” Mr. Fernandez-Taranco stated.He added that efforts to help the parties resume direct talks continue, including recent meetings by the envoys of the diplomatic Quartet – comprising the UN, European Union, Russia and the United States – and Tony Blair with the parties. The envoys called on the parties to create a conducive environment for restarting talks, and urged both to refrain from provocative actions. “We continue to believe that de-escalation is necessary to facilitate the resumption of direct meaningful engagement between both sides,” said Mr. Fernandez-Taranco.He added that it is encouraging that, at their last meetings with the envoys, both the Israelis and the Palestinians, showed willingness to consider reciprocal actions that may help to reduce tensions. read more

US to submit resolution backing Sri Lanka

The report by the office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights will be submitted to the UN Human Rights Council during its 30th session in Geneva next month. Biswal said that during her visit to Sri Lanka she had discussed the matter with the TNA and impressed on the need to work with the new government to address the issues.Tom Malinowski, Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, said that the international community will continue to keep the spotlight on Sri Lanka, no matter what happens in Geneva.He said the US recognizes the efforts being taken by the Sri Lankan Government to address the human rights issue and will not set a deadline to see results. However, he said that at the same time there are some immediate issues which the Government can address including returning land and releasing political prisoners. Biswal who just concluded a visit to Sri Lanka said that the resolution will be consensual and will be drafted following discussions with the Sri Lankan government once the contents of the report is known. The United States today said that it will be submitting a resolution in support of Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva even as the Council looks to discuss a highly critical report on alleged war crimes committed in the country.US Assistant Secretary of State for Central and South Asia, Nisha Biswal told reporters today that the matter had already been discussed with the international community as there is a need to give the new Sri Lankan government time to address the human rights concerns. The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has been calling for an international independent investigation on alleged war crimes said to have been committed during the final stages of the war between the LTTE and the Sri Lankan military.The US had supported such calls earlier but Biswal said that the new Government has shown promise of addressing the concerns through a domestic mechanism. He also said that in the past, the failure to meet commitments on the human rights issue had undermined confidence in a domestic process.While the new Government is expected to face a challenge to secure confidence in the domestic process, Malinowski said the US will not judge based on promises but on results. (Colombo Gazette)Report by Easwaran Rutnam read more

Low prices LNG uncertainty add to frustration levels for natural gas producers

Companies mentioned in this article: (TSX:BIR, TSX:PONY, TSX:PMT)Dan Healing, The Canadian Press CALGARY — Greg Kist admits he was burned out when he resigned as president of Pacific NorthWest LNG at the end of 2014, as the Vancouver-based venture led by Malaysian energy giant Petronas advanced its ill-fated mission to build a liquefied natural gas project in B.C.“I needed to decompress,” the 57-year-old gas industry veteran says of his decision to return to his home and family in Alberta.Once hailed as a voracious new consumer of western Canadian natural gas, the nascent LNG industry was staggered by project delays and all but halted by declining global price trends, leading to Petronas cancelling its project in 2017.Meanwhile, Kist went into retirement mode and avoided the natural gas business for the next couple of years.So it’s surprising that Kist now finds himself back in the thick of things as president and CEO of Rockies LNG Partners, a consortium of nine natural gas producers who invited him back with a promise to try again to jumpstart an LNG export project.The hope is that the former college basketball players’ experience in LNG and the natural gas business will help them to move their gas from the oversupplied and underpriced markets of North America to the promised land in Asia.“I think the next six months are critical for us,” Kist said in an interview in the downtown Calgary offices of Birchcliff Energy Ltd., one of the consortium members.The gas producers want to attract partners to build and operate what could be a 12-million-tonne-per-year LNG project to open by 2026, when forecasts suggest LNG demand will exceed supply. That means an investment decision must be made by the end of 2021.Gas industry insiders used to say the solution to low prices is low prices — when prices go down, less is produced and scarcity makes prices go up again.But that hasn’t happened. In March 2013, Canada produced about 14 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas. Six year later, the National Energy Board reports production had increased by 16 per cent to 16.2 billion cf/d, despite no rise in pricing trends.Meanwhile, Canada’s largest gas customer, the U.S., is experiencing a shale gas boom that led to domestic production reaching 109 billion cf/d in March, up 35 per cent compared with 81 billion in the same month in 2013. Near-term prices in the U.S. have recently dropped to three-year lows on a glut of gas.In mid-July, a group of nine Alberta producers — unrelated to Rockies LNG but with some common membership — released an open letter demanding the province support a plan under which royalty credits would be issued to producers who voluntarily cut production to boost low gas prices when supply overwhelms pipeline capacity.Complaints about poor gas prices and interruptions in gas sales due to pipeline outages are common as Calgary-based natural gas producers roll out second-quarter results.Painted Pony Energy Ltd. reported recently it was using some of its own natural gas to replace higher-priced diesel fuel in some well-completion operations, a move it says could save $100,000 per well.Meanwhile, Perpetual Energy Inc. reported shutting down wells producing two per cent of its total output because it was more profitable to buy cheap gas on the market to satisfy its supply contracts.In Western Canada, “dry” gas has become an unloved byproduct as producers continue to drill wells seeking the light petroleum liquids produced with the gas, especially in the Montney formation that underlies the northern Alberta-B.C. border, said Ian Archer, associate director of North American natural gas with IHS Markit.One product in particular, condensate, commands prices in line with U.S. benchmark crude oil because it is needed to dilute oilsands bitumen to allow it to flow in a pipeline. Canada produced 417,000 barrels per day of condensate in March, up from just under 150,000 bpd in March 2013. Meanwhile, it still imports condensate from the U.S.“They’re drilling for condensate and sometimes the volume of condensate is only, say, 20 or 30 per cent of the well (volume), but it’s going to be 40 or 50 per cent of the revenue,” said Archer.“Then they have that 70 per cent gas volume they have to deal with.”There have been more than 20 proposals to build LNG projects on Canada’s West Coast but construction has only begun on one, LNG Canada, and it’s not expected to open until 2023 or 2024.It would take in up to 2.1 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas but most or all of it is expected to come from northern B.C. wells owned by partners in the project.That’s not good enough for the long-suffering members of the Rockies LNG group, said Kist.“If you look back over the history of LNG projects worldwide and certainly in Canada, they’re pretty much controlled by major international entities. Those entities tend to look after their own opportunities, not necessarily the opportunities for the producer groups.” Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter. read more

UN mission in Kosovo signs agreement on DNA testing for missing persons

Hans Haekkerup, head of the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), said the ICMP has the technical means and money to start the process. Referring to recent demonstrations by Serbs seeking information about missing persons, the UNMIK chief also stressed that the international community is committed to finding the truth about the missing.Mr. Haekkerup emphasized that UNMIK supported the efforts of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, which is currently investigating the atrocities committed in Kosovo. At the same time, he pointed out that the Albanians and the Serbs who know about the atrocities must provide information to the Tribunal.Meanwhile, the border between Kosovo and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia remained closed, with a UN agency reporting refugee flows in both directions.According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), more than 200 people returned to Skopje from Kosovo on Tuesday and more than 130 left the FYR of Macedonia for Kosovo. The agency has urged all parties to avoid confrontation in a conflict that has already displaced tens of thousands of people. read more

US economy grew at 31 per cent rate in JulySeptember quarter but

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 3.1 per cent over the summer as exports increased, consumers spent more and state and local governments added to growth for the first time in three years. But the economy is likely slowing in the current quarter.The Commerce Department’s third and final estimate Thursday of growth for the July-September quarter was revised up from its previous estimate of a 2.7 per cent annual growth rate.Growth in the third quarter was more than twice the 1.3 per cent growth rate in the April-June quarter. But disruptions from Superstorm Sandy and uncertainty weighing on consumers and businesses from the “fiscal cliff” are likely holding back growth in the October-December quarter. Many analysts predict an annual growth rate of just 1.5 per cent for this quarter.Robert Kavcic, an economist at BMO Capital Markets, said the upward revision to third-quarter growth didn’t change his view that the U.S. economy is slowing in the current quarter to an annual growth rate below 2 per cent. Kavcic said a temporary jump in defence spending and business stockpiling in the July-September period is likely being reversed this quarter.And many economists aren’t expecting much improvement in the January-March quarter. The latest forecast from 48 economists for the National Association of Business Economics is for an annual growth rate of just 1.8 per cent in the first quarter of 2013. Growth at that level is considered too weak to significantly lower the unemployment rate, which was 7.7 per cent in November.But if Congress and the White House reach agreement to avoid the fiscal cliff, growth could accelerate next year, many economists, including Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, have said. The Fed last week said it plans to keep a key interest rate at a record low as long as unemployment remains above 6.5 per cent. And it forecast that unemployment would stay that high until late 2015.The government’s final estimate of a 3.1 per cent growth rate for gross domestic product last quarter is a sharp improvement over its initial estimate of a 2 per cent rate — a figure that it later revised up to 2.7 per cent based on a buildup in business stockpiles.GDP measures the nation’s total output of goods and services — from restaurant meals and haircuts to airplanes and appliances.The further upward revision this month reflected stronger consumer spending, which accounts for about 70 per cent of economic activity. The government said consumer spending grew at an annual rate of 1.6 per cent in the third quarter, above its previous estimate of 1.4 per cent.The Commerce Department also revised up its estimate of spending by state and local governments to show a gain of 0.3 per cent — the first quarterly increase in three years. State and local governments had previously been slashing payrolls and other spending in the aftermath of the Great Recession. Total government spending grew at 3.9 per cent annual rate last quarter, reflecting a surge in defence spending.The economy also got a boost in the third quarter from trade: Exports grew at a faster pace than previously estimated.The NABE forecasting panel has said it expects GDP to grow 2.1 per cent in 2013, little changed from expected 2.2 per cent expansion this year. That would continue the tepid growth that has persisted since the official end of the recession in mid-2009.But the NABE panel said it thinks growth will accelerate later in the year as long as Congress and the administration resolve their debate over taxes and government spending. Doing so would remove the uncertainty that, in part, is holding back spending, many economists say. by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Dec 20, 2012 3:01 pm MDT US economy grew at 3.1 per cent rate in July-September quarter but growth likely slower now read more

Canadians want to sell iconic crown corporations poll

Canadians want to sell iconic crown corporations: poll. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email A new poll from Abacus Data shows more and more Canadians want to see some of the country’s largest crown corporations sold off to private companies.The survey focuses on the CBC, Via Rail and Canada Post.According to David Coletto, a CEO of Abacus Data, Canadians traditionally have enjoyed and supported these corporations but now many don’t want them being funded from the public purse.“With via rail having higher support for privatisation, around 57 per cent, compared to just under 50 per cent for Canada Post and the CBC,” said Coletto.Compared to a previous poll, the jump in support is as much as 12 per cent.Coletto said Canadians still enjoy the services but recent financial troubles and run-ins with the federal government have changed people’s opinions.Both Via Rail and Canada Post have lost hundreds of millions of dollars in recent years and it costs about a billion dollars to run the CBC.Nearly 2,000 people took part in the survey. by News Staff Posted Jan 30, 2014 10:29 am MDT read more

Braxton Miller I was just having a little bit of fun rushing

Junior quarterback Braxton Miller (5) runs the ball during a game against Indiana Nov. 23 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 42-14.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorWhether lined up as a quarterback or wide receiver, Ohio State junior quarterback Braxton Miller had no shortage of success running the ball against the Indiana defense in OSU’s 42-14 victory Saturday.“It would be hard for me to say that wasn’t the best he’s ever run that I’ve seen him play,” coach Urban Meyer said of Miller following the victory.On a day senior Carlos Hyde became the first running back to rush for 1,000 yards in a single season on a Meyer-coached team, it was Miller who stole the spotlight.Miller led the Buckeyes with 144 rushing yards on just 13 attempts, the third game in his OSU career in which he averaged more than 11 yards per carry.The quarterback ran for two touchdowns, and neither lacked theatrics.He accentuated his first scoring run, a 37-yard scamper, with a somersault flip into the end zone over the right front pylon.“I was just having a little bit of fun,” Miller said after the game.OSU offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman did not find the end of Miller’s touchdown run as enjoyable.“He said he was just having fun out there, and I said, ‘Well, as long, you can have as much fun as you want, just don’t cost your team 15 yards,’” Herman said, who was worried about Miller picking up an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the celebration.Miller’s second touchdown run came on a play Herman named “Jazzy,” which began with Miller lined up on the left side of the field as a wide receiver and redshirt-senior Kenny Guiton in his place at quarterback.Guiton started the play moving left toward Miller, but Miller came right on a reverse and took a pitch from Guiton. From there, Miller looked to pass but continued running forward and toward the right side of the field, capping the play by leaping and extending over a hit from a defender for a five-yard touchdown.“It’s a run/pass option and (the Indiana defense) covered the routes actually really good,” Herman said. “(Miller) has a run/pass option to throw it to (junior tight end Jeff) Heuerman or run it in himself … he did a hell of a job finding the end zone.”Meyer said he was “hoping (Miller) would throw it.”“He’s a great athlete,” Meyer said of Miller. “I’d rather him not do that, but do what he’s got to do. He played really well today.”It was important for the Buckeyes to have success from multiple rushing threats Saturday, as OSU went with a run-heavy game plan on a snowy, windy day at Ohio Stadium.“I went out there in pregame warmups and (the weather) was certainly affecting a lot of the throws,” Herman said. “When Mother Nature tells you ‘Don’t throw the football,’ you better listen to her, because she’s pretty demanding when it comes to that.”Still, on a day the Buckeyes ran the ball 39 times and only had 17 passing attempts, Miller completed 11 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns.Miller earned praise from Herman for three downfield throws that went for 25 yards or more: a 39-yard touchdown completion to junior wide receiver Devin Smith on a post route across the middle of the end zone, and two deep completions on seam routes by Heuerman for 34 and 25-yard gains.“Three unbelievable throws that stick out,” Herman said.Overall, Miller accounted for more than 64 percent of OSU’s total offense Saturday.Miller’s game was not without its mistakes, though. He had two fumbles, one of which was recovered by Indiana freshman defensive tackle Darius Latham for a takeaway. He also had a pass tipped in the backfield by Hoosiers’ redshirt-sophomore cornerback Michael Hunter and intercepted by redshirt-senior safety Greg Heban.“We got to protect the football better at our position,” Herman said. “I did a poor job of coaching him on that corner blitz that got tipped and intercepted, but the two fumbles from our position are certainly unacceptable.”Overall, however, Herman said Miller has been playing the best football of his OSU career “by far” this season.“(Miller) took a little step back against Illinois, didn’t have his greatest game, but I got asked if that was a cause for concern after that game and I said, ‘As long as it’s not a pattern,’” Herman said. “He prepared really, really well this week and played his you-know-what off, and yeah, I’m proud of him.”Miller only played one series in OSU’s second game against San Diego State and missed the next two games after suffering a sprained MCL in his left knee. In nine games, Miller has completed 67.7 percent of his passing attempts for 1,626 yards, 19 touchdowns and four interceptions, while he has also rushed for 738 yards and five touchdowns.“He’s a freak,” junior defensive tackle Michael Bennett said. “He’s really developed as a passer this year, which was great to see because everyone knows his run threat. But you see him making passes that a lot of people can’t make, and I feel like he’s really starting to develop into that role of an NFL quarterback.”Statistically, Miller’s last two games against Illinois and Indiana have been his lowest passing outputs of the season in terms of yards, with the exception of the San Diego State game, in which he only attempted two passes before leaving with injury. But in those two games, he has rushed for the same combined number of rushing yards, 328, as he had in his first five games back from injury.“Good to see Braxton back out there looking like Braxton,” Hyde said. “I love to watch Braxton running the ball. He’s a very exciting player. Any minute, he can break off that long one or make somebody look silly, and it was exciting to be able to watch him.”Miller will look to continue making big plays, and the Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0) will be looking to extend their school-record win streak to 24, when they travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., to play Michigan (7-4, 3-4) Saturday. Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. read more

University funds dog walking for students to stop them becoming stressed ahead

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. “The charity Pets as Therapy often visits us during exam periods so that students can pet the dogs, with the most recent session seeing hundreds of people queueing out the door- so we know this initiative is going to be hugely popular.“We also hope to reduce some of the stigma which still surrounds mental health and raise awareness of the benefits of physical activity for mental wellbeing.”Other welfare initiatives offered by the university include wellbeing advice sessions, resilience and wellbeing workshops, talking therapies, an exercise referral scheme and a student-designed wellbeing app. A university has funded dog walking for students in order to prevent stress during the exam season.The University of East Anglia, in Norwich, received around £12,000 of funding to help improve student well-being through physical activity. Part of this money is going towards pet therapy.Students will be able to go on walks with dogs to Cromer beach and Thetford Forest.

The university is also in contact with a local dog day care to see if they can lend their animals to the cause.The initiative is funded by the taxpayer through Sport England, which receives money from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, as well as being partially-funded by the National Lottery.Research by UEA academic Professor Andy Jones from the Norwich Medical School suggests that the benefits of dog walking are significant, he said: “Our studies have shown that dog walking helps people to maintain their physical activity levels.

Verizon temporarily doubles LTE data caps

first_imgIn a bold move, Verizon is offering a limited-time promo that will double the data caps for LTE users. Starting tomorrow, November 8, Big Red will let both new and existing owners of LTE phones use twice the data that they are typically allotted.The graphic below shows what you can expect during the promotional period, vs. the rest of the time:Why is Verizon doing this? It’s probably no coincidence that AT&T just launched their first LTE phones this past weekend. Perhaps VZW looked at their network capacity and decided that they could afford to be a little more congested for a month or two, in order to lure new customers and keep current ones. AT&T’s LTE plans are slightly cheaper than Verizon’s, but this promotion (temporarily) makes Verizon’s the better value.New customers will automatically be signed up for the promotion, but current customers will need to contact Verizon to take advantage of it. This can be done by either calling customer support, or by visiting My Verizon online. The company has not yet stated when the promo will end.If you’re already the owner of a Verizon 4G phone, like the Droid Bionic or the HTC Thunderbolt, then you will definitely want to get in on this. As long as you’re conscientious of your data usage after the promo ends, then it’s free data with no drawbacks.If you’re a new customer, however, you may want to take this promo with a grain of salt. We wouldn’t recommend making these new limits part of your buying decision. Sure, it’s nice to get some extra data for a month or two (don’t bank on this lasting longer than that). But then that leaves 22 months of your contract with the standard caps.More at PCMaglast_img read more

Catch the latest buzz from the industry in this weekly update.Florida-based Black Knight, Inc. has introduced LoanSphere Servicing Digital, a new solution to help mortgage servicers deepen customer relationships and increase retention.

With that in mind, and employing a ‘design thinking’ approach, we’ve developed a solution that lets our clients provide their customers with ongoing, detailed information about their loans and homes, as well as the tools to help manage the wealth they have built in their homes.”___________________________________________________________________________________Hyland, a Cleveland-based content services provider, released the latest version of OnBase, a single enterprise information platform for managing content, processes, and cases.
