first_img Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 El Obispo Presidente y Primado de la Iglesia Episcopal Michael B. Curry ha emitido la siguiente declaración sobre la trata de personas.Mientras conmemoramos a nivel nacional el mes de la concientización sobre la trata de personas de 2018 es importante reconocer que el tráfico de personas es un crimen que va en contra de los principios más básicos de nuestra fe. Desafortunadamente, es también muy común y pone a millones [de personas] en riesgo cada día.La trata de personas se manifiesta en una variedad de formas y en una variedad de industrias desde la servidumbre personal [involuntaria] hasta la agricultura, en los hoteles e industria hostelera o en el comercio sexual. Lo que sí sabemos con certeza es que para que este crimen ocurra los responsables deben devaluar y deshumanizar a otra persona.Hemos de tener claro que todos los seres humanos están hechos a imagen de Dios y cada uno merece una vida libre de violencia y de la amenaza de violencia, de explotación y de coerción. Debemos también condenar las estructuras y sistemas que hacen muy fácil que este mal ocurra. Elogio la labor de las diócesis, las congregaciones y las personas en toda la Iglesia y la comunión anglicana que colaboran para crear conciencia, apoyar a los sobrevivientes y proteger contra la trata de personas. Exhorto a todos los que siguen a Jesús que se comprometan a seguir desarrollando una relación amorosa, liberadora y vivificante con Dios y con nuestros semejantes.Obispo presidente Michael B.

In the Fischer district, which is part of the historic old town of Ulm, the architecture firms Hartl. (Ulm) and Bottega + Ehrhardt Architekten (Stuttgart) created a new residential building with a gallery. The new building at the Saumarkt replaces a faceless post-war building with a one-story flat roof porch and, with its cubature, follows the formerly magnificent half-timbered houses on the corner of the Saumarkt and Fischergasse.Save this picture!© David FranckSave this picture!Level 1 PlanSave this picture!© David FranckThe three-story building, with its characteristic double gable and its trapezoidal ground plan figure, creates a spatial edge to the Saumarkt. The pedestal zone of glazed concrete houses gallery rooms are staged by large-format, flush windows, and a parking garage with five parking spaces. Above are spacious flats with floor-to-ceiling windows and deeply recessed loggias. In the attic, there is a large maisonette apartment, which has a roof terrace that is stretched between the gables.Save this picture!© David FranckA roof covering made of anthracite-colored, sharply cut plain tiles, as well as a plaster facade with a horizontal broom on an Einstein masonry comply to the design requirements of the old town and manifest the contemporary architectural language.

Oxfam closes Tsunami appeal

first_img Oxfam closed its Tsunami crisis appeal yesterday, thanking the British public for their generosity in making the appeal the most successful appeal in the organisation’s 60-year history.As a result of the public response, Oxfam says that its work is now fully funded. It therefore found itself in the very unusual position of not needing to ask for any further money for this work.Oxfam’s International Director, Jasmine Whitbread said: “We asked the public to give and give quickly and they have done just that. The speed and scale of response has helped us save thousands of lives. The generosity of the British public has meant that we are in the privileged position of having enough money to fund our work.” Advertisement Oxfam raised £70 million from the British public for its work in the region. From yesterday Oxfam was no longer accepting new donations for the Tsunami Crisis Appeal, but instead urged people to give money to Oxfam’s work in the world’s less high-profile emergencies, such as its Sudan appeal for work in Darfur.Meanwhile, Oxfam noted that “governments have still not delivered even half of the money that they promised to the UN [tsunami] appeal”.

As clocks go back, Rank Group staff use extra hour for fundraising for Carers Trust

first_img The clocks go back one hour on Sunday. While many people will enjoy a lie-in, staff at The Rank Group have committed to use that extra hour to raise funds for Carers Trust.Thousands of staff will be taking part in fundraising events and activities on Sunday to raise funds for the charity, which is The Rank Group’s charity partner. Activities range from a Tom Jones tribute night to cake bakes.The charity improves support, services and recognition for anyone who cares, unpaid, for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. There are seven million carers in the UK.What would carers do?The charity polled 255 carers to find out how they would use the extra hour at the end of British Summer Time tomorrow.Given that many unpaid carers work around the clock looking after their sick or disabled family members or friends, 22% said they would welcome some extra sleep. On the other hand 25% said they would go out and get some exercise or take part in a hobby; and 18% said they would catch up with friends.Henry Birch, CEO, of The Rank Group Plc, said:“Our employees love a challenge and the opportunity to come up with some innovative ideas to raise money for Carers Trust in just an hour was irresistible.

Purdue Extension Names First Hemp Production Specialist

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Extension Names First Hemp Production Specialist Purdue-hemp-specialist-namedPurdue University is expanding its investment and support of the industrial hemp industry by selecting a hemp production specialist, a brand-new position. Marguerite Bolt earned an entomology degree from Michigan State and just received her master’s degree in entomology from Purdue University. Ron Turco, head of Purdue’s Department of Agronomy said Bolt has been working on a hemp research project for the last three years and is a great fit for the job.“She also has extensive background in hort operations,” he told HAT. “She worked on a number of greenhouse operations and has grown up in the extension world. She’s from Michigan where she’s had quite a bit of diversity in crop production, so her background really fits the diversity of people who are trying to come into the hemp world. So, we thought it was a great match in that one, she has hemp experience, which is really hard to find, and two she’s got greenhouse and diverse crop experience which is also hard to find.”Turco said Purdue has been working on industrial hemp in a rather low-key manner the last four years, but it is time to intensify what they do now that Indiana farmers can legally get into the industry.“There’s been a huge development in the state with 3 or 4 hundred people who are interested in producing hemp, and it’s becoming more difficult for us with our low-key effort to keep up with that need. So, we approached ag administration and they also were feeling the pressure from people in the state with questions about hemp. So, we put together a package that supports this position for a number of years to sort of help this industry start up in the state. If it does get going we will look at a more long-term situation.”And just what does the future look like for hemp growers? There are possibilities, but Turco says there has to be product demand.“I think there’s some real opportunity,” he said but added, “It’s never going to replace corn or soybeans, but it could certainly offer a cash situation for folks. It’s really, really critical, the need to create product out of these materials, so out of the fiber side, or out of the oil side, or out of the seed side. We really need to be doing some innovative research along that line. I know we have a history with the soybean world doing very innovative products, so we need to expand some of that skill set looking at some of the hemp materials as well.”Marguerite Bolt intends to design an Extension program that provides the groundwork for prospective commercial hemp production through public meetings, field days and updates to Purdue’s hemp website. She also plans to build a social media presence for Purdue’s hemp project. Contact her at her easy to remember email address, [email protected] Purdue, Bolt’s research with Assistant Professor of Entomology John Couture has focused on the influence of agronomic management practices on hemp-insect interactions.“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with hemp over the last two years and I am excited to continue my work on this crop,” Bolt said. “I am committed to applying my communication skills and passion for hemp production to this position in several ways.”With hemp being a new crop for Indiana farmers, Bolt plans to educate interested growers on how to get started with hemp, including how to obtain a permit and seeds for the crop, which cultivars are best for the region and where to find reliable information. When hemp production becomes fully operational in 2020, Bolt plans to work with the State Chemist’s Office to provide webinars focusing on the application process to obtain a hemp production permit, which will be required for all hemp operations.With the intricacies of raising hemp still somewhat of an unknown for most Indiana farmers, Bolt also plans to develop and release a series of webinars to address growers’ questions, along with fact sheets and eventually a hemp production guide for Indiana.Source: Purdue News Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Jun 10, 2019 SHARE Previous articlePlanting Progress MadeNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for June 11, 2019 Andy Eubank Purdue Extension Names First Hemp Production Specialistlast_img read more

Purdue Experts Find Few Issues in the Fields

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Experts Find Few Issues in the Fields SHARE The latest Purdue Crop Chat Podcast is live now. Purdue Extension Corn Specialist Bob Nielsen and Extension Soybean Specialist Shaun Casteel discuss the progression of the crops and where we stand currently.A couple of weeks ago, Nielsen and Casteel were concerned about stand issues, but now, “I really just have not seen and haven’t heard much of it and I’m thankful for that,” says Casteel. “The places that had ponds, that’s no doubt, that’s an easy one. No corn, no soybeans, they’re used to that. Go back and fill in the Swiss cheese holes. But as far as this gradient, I’m just not seeing it.”Nielsen agreed saying he’s seeing few stand issues in corn.“It’s certainly not rampant. We were fearmongering about this a couple of weeks ago, but corn is the same way. Other than the wet holes being gone, I’ve seen few fields that look poorly. The other thing I would comment on, a couple of weeks ago we were talking about how ugly the corn and beans were looking on color, corn has really greened up nice. A lot of that is attributed to these warm temperatures that we’ve had that it’s finally got some photosynthesis really cranked up and going in response to the warmth. Knock on wood, I think we’re off to a pretty good start this year.”Hear more from Nielsen, Casteel, and new Purdue Extension Corn Specialist Dan Quinn in the latest Purdue Crop Chat Podcast below.

Independent journalists harassed, attacked in Kurdistan in run-up to elections

first_img Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” Kurdistan Prime Minister Barham Ahmad Salih filed a legal action last week against Kurdish journalist Rebwar Karim Wali, the former editor of the daily Hawler, over an article he wrote for the independent weekly Awene (Mirror) last month accusing the prime minister of spending more time dining in chic restaurants than in his office trying to deal with the needs of his fellow citizens. Dr. Salih also filed a complaint against the weekly’s editor, Shwan Mohammed.

Help by sharing this information to go further December 16, 2020 Find out more Commenting on these press freedom violations, Kurdish intellectual and writer Aso Jabar told Reporters Without Borders: “The Kurdish authorities are showing their darkest side through these acts of repression. Real democracies do not oppress their people for using the right to free speech.” The press freedom organisation has learned of the following violations since late January. Religious leaders filed a complaint against Abdelrahman Tayeb Bamarni, the editor of Chavder, a Kurdish weekly published by the PUK, and writer Hoshang Sheikh Mohammed on 27 January in Dahuk province over a poem published in the magazine deemed to be an offence to Islam. Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan Nabaz Goran, the editor of the independent Kurdish-language monthly Jehan (World), was physically attacked for the second time in the past three months on 9 February in Sulaymaniyah. “I was in the district of Sabunkaran when two youths attacked me,” he told Reporters Without Borders. “Street traders ran after them but failed to catch them. I called the police. If they want to arrest them, they could easily do so because one of them was wounded in the face.” Cases of harassment and physical violence against independent and opposition journalists have been increasing in frequency in Iraqi Kurdistan in the run-up to legislative elections scheduled for 6 March. Newscenter_img News RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” The police threatened to burn down the homes of employees of the satellite TV station Speda in Halabja (75 km east of Sulaymaniyah) on 12 February if they posted photos of policemen brandishing placards and flags of the ruling Patriotic Union of Kurdistan/ Kurdistan Democratic Party coalition. The TV station, which belongs to the Kurdish Islamic Union (Yekgirtu), did nonetheless post the photos on its website and filed a complaint against the city’s police. Four incidents took place on 14 February: RSF_en Known for supporting President Barzani, the KDP’s leader, Wali said he has often been lambasted in the past by media that support Dr. Salih, who heads the PUK. Although Mohammed said he published Dr. Salih’s response in Awene, he was summoned to appear today before a court, which released him payment of 500,000 dinars (314 euros) in bail News December 28, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts IraqMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Iraq Although Kurdistan’s press law contains no provision for the detention of journalists, they were arrested and kept in police custody for day until released on bail. The PUK’s “office of democratic organisations” meanwhile decided to close the magazine for two weeks. News Wali maintains that the lawsuit is illegal. “In no way does my article insult the prime minister, nor does it jeopardise national security,” he told Reporters Without Borders. “I just said he needs to turn the election promises he made last July into concrete actions.” He said he received a phone call asking him to report to the police. “But I told them I would not go as long as I had not received a written notification.” • Reporter Bryar Namiq of Kurdish News Network (KNN), an opposition satellite TV station, and a KNN cameraman were accosted by police in Sulaymaniyah while covering a demonstration by pensioners for more benefits and were detained for an hour. “We got permission from the head of the pensions department to cover this protest,” Namiq told Reporters Without Borders. “But when we began filming, the police pounced on us and threatened to give us a beating if we continued. One of the policemen grabbed the camera and arrested us.”• A KNN cameraman was prevented from covering a story in Raniya, a town 120 km south of Sulaymaniyah.• The local branch of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) – part of the coalition that controls the Kurdistan Regional Government – prevented a crew from Gorran (Change), a local television station, from filming in Kirkuk. • Bodyguards of Iraqi Kurdistan President Masoud Barzani prevented Ibrahim Ali, the editor of the independent magazine Livin, from entered the headquarters of the PUK/KDP coalition in Erbil to take photos. They said it was because the magazine was too critical of the ruling coalition.last_img read more
