Son las preguntas que la Obispa de Cuba: Griselda Delgado, se hacía mientras estudiaba en el Seminario Teológico de Cuba en la década de los ochenta.Cuba es un país singular por su realidad política, económica y social. También en Cuba hay una diócesis Episcopal extra-provincial establecida desde el siglo XIX llena de esperanza, acción y servicio. Cuenta con 44 congregaciones, 36 misiones, 21 sacerdotes y 4 sacerdotes mujeres, 6 seminaristas.La Obispa Griselda Delgado asiste a la 77ª Convención General en calidad de Obispa visitante. Este jueves habló ante el Comité de Asuntos Nacionales e Internacionales, quienes consideran dos resoluciones concernientes a Cuba. Una resolución propone que la Iglesia Episcopal apoye el fin del embargo a Cuba y otra que aboga por un trato humanitario a prisioneros cubanos. Ambas resoluciones fueron presentadas por la comisión Permanente de Asuntos Anglicanos y de Paz Internacional con Justicia.La obispa Griselda Delgado abogó por el fin del embargo aduciendo que afecta a la población mas pobre de cuba. ‘Nuestros niños no pueden acceder a medicinas contra el cáncer o nuestros hospitales a equipos médicos modernos. El embargo afecta también el acceso a internet el cual es muy escaso o nulo. Así mismo cuatro sacerdotes episcopales jubilados no pueden recibir su pensión como merecían y uno de ellos ya murió.’La primada de Cuba también habló en favor de una resolución pidiendo trato humanitario para los prisioneros cubanos y especialmente que se les permita las visitas de sus familiares, que en algunos casos no han visto desde hace 10 años. También mencionó el caso de Rene González-un agente cubano acusado de espionaje- quien goza de libertad condicional en Miami, pero a quien la justicia estadounidense no le permite regresar aun a Cuba. Se escucharon otras cinco opiniones a favor y solo una en contra de estas resoluciones. La Comisión decidió cerrar brevemente la sesión, rompiendo el protocolo, para saludar efusivamente a la Obispa Griselda.Este viernes la Obispa fue invitada a dar una conferencia en el evento ‘Nuestra iglesia hoy en Haití y Cuba’, organizada por la Oficina de Desarrollo de la Iglesia Episcopal, reunión que contó con la presencia de la Obispa Presidenta KatharineJefferts Schori y unos setenta invitados entre Obispos, sacerdotes y laicos, primero se vieron las fotos de las obras de reconstrucción en Haití y se escuchó al Obispo Sufragante Oge Beauvoir agradeciendo la labor de reconstrucción que la Iglesia Episcopal realiza en Haití.Luego la Obispa Griselda, dio su discurso en español (traducido simultáneamente al inglés) y fue acompañado de las fotos del trabajo de la Iglesia Episcopal en la Isla. Empezó con una reseña histórica y agradeció el apoyo recibido por la Iglesia Episcopal Nacional y a la diócesis de Canadá quienes hacen posible que la diócesis de Cuba mantenga su trabajo pastoral y social.Volviendo a la pregunta inicial ¿Como se trabaja en Cuba? Ella responde desde su experiencia en la Iglesia Episcopal que la gente encuentra una dimensión espiritual que balancea sus vidas y les da fortaleza. ‘La sociedad cubana no va los domingos a misa solo porque es una tradición familiar, ellos nos se bautizan porque ‘deben hacerlo’. Además agrega ‘Durante la década del 90 Cuba dejó de recibir ayuda de la Unión soviética y de los países del campo socialista, eso agregado el embargo de Estados Unidos, resultó en una grave crisis económica, en la que no había comida en la mesa de los cubanos, la Iglesia dio una respuesta local en dos dimensiones: dio desayuno a los pobres sí, pero además dio apoyo espiritual, porque muchas personas aprendieron que tener una conexión con un ser supremo les daba fortaleza para la vida diaria.’A la pregunta de ¿Cómo hizo crecer sus congregaciones? Ella responde: ‘No hay receta, solo persistencia y testimonio en tu vida diaria, la crisis del 90 sirvió para revitalizar todas las iglesias aumentaron los bautizos, confirmaciones y vocaciones. Yo creo que hemos tenido un crecimiento prudente pero sólido.’Acerca de las relaciones ecuménicas en Cuba, ella recuerda con alegría la década del 80 mientras estudiaba en el Seminario ecuménico entonces tenía amigos de diversas denominaciones. Luego las actividades ecuménicas fueron disminuyendo. Pero reconoce que El Consejo Ecuménico de las Iglesias en Cuba tiene un exitoso programa de capacitación en programas de desarrollo sostenible, porque tienen la visión de que los feligreses encuentren sus talentos y los pongan al servicio de los demás.Si pudiera resumir la visión de su diócesis en un lema ¿cuál seria? ‘Un pequeño grupo de personas en pequeños lugares haciendo pequeñas cosas pueden transformar la faz de la tierra.’ Sonríe y sale corriendo hacia la sesión de la Casa de los Obispos: la mujer de cultura Aymara, boliviana de nacimiento, con un corazón inmenso para los cubanos y primera Obispa mujer de Cuba.— Araceli Ma es integrante del equipo del Episcopal News Service en la Convención General.

Located on the southern slope of Jeju Island, the Scissor House pivots up a previously existing tangerine farm overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The volcanic Island, Jeju, is approximately 100 kilometers south of the Korean Peninsula. Known for its tropical landscape and strong winds, Jeju Island has indigenous homes which are typically earth houses with low thatched dome roofs tied down with large volcanic basalt stones. Warm summer breezes blow up from the Pacific over the entire face of Halla Mountain, the islands central volcano.

The scissor house is oriented to take advantage of these natural conditions while maintaining much of the existing tangerine farm. The slope of the site is terraced with 2 to 3 meter basalt stone retaining walls. The house scissors between one tier and another, stepping up and pivoting around the low basalt stone wall. A small stone and moss garden faces the entry and steps up to the main living space which overlooks a courtyard, with a persimmon tree, towards the Pacific Ocean. Sliding doors along the main living and eating space can open the entire house to the ocean for much of the year. The continuous roof remains low and monolithic to allow the singular form protection from the strong winds moving over the house.

During the pouring and curing process, the roof was re-troweled every 2-3 hours throughout the night to allow any existing moisture to rise and form an 8- 10 millimeter thick cement seal which will prevent future cracks and is completely water tight. The Scissor House is able to maintain a small ecological footprint while enjoying the immense beauty of the Island and the Pacific Ocean.Save this picture!© Wooseop HwangProject gallerySee allShow lessAdaptive and Dynamic Buildings – The Future of Environmental Design & ArchitectureArticlesNew Visions Design CompetitionArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/72421/scissor-house-bcho-architects Clipboard Architects: BCHO Architects Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

Masses cheer as protests force out government in Mali

first_imgBamako, MaliAfter months of agitation and protests — some going on for days, involving  thousands of people and substantial injuries — the Malian Army arrested President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta (IBK), Prime Minister Boubou Cissé and the entire cabinet Aug. 18.The June 5 Movement — Rally of Patriotic Forces, known as M5-RFP, which had been a main force leading the protests, welcomed the army’s move. Thousands of people cheered as the army moved the arrested politicians through Bamako, as shown on video by France 24.The international community as a whole condemned the army and demanded  Keita’s reinstatement. The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) suspended Mali’s membership, prohibited financial transactions between its members and Mali, and closed all its borders with the country..France condemned the army’s arrests and demanded Keita’s reinstatement. The former colonial overlord in Mali currently has 5,100 troops stationed in the country, mainly in its central and southern regions. They are fighting against several jihadist militias. The U.N., which has a “peacekeeping” force MINUSMA of 14,000 soldiers in northern and eastern Mali, also condemned the army’s arrests.U.S drones in the Sahel Not to be left out, J. Peter Pham, U.S. State Department special envoy for the Sahel region tweeted, “The US is opposed to all unconstitutional changes of government whether in the streets or by security forces.” The U.S. has a major drone base in Niger, which borders Mali to the east and supplies operational intelligence to the French and U.N. forces.In neighboring countries — such as Senegal, Guinea, Niger and Burkina Faso — there is a palpable sense that the eruption in Mali could be contagious. This is visible in comments on Internet sites of residents of those countries. For example, El Hadji Diouf, a lawyer and political leader in Senegal, warned its President Macky Sall against excusing the “coup makers in Mali.” (tinyurl.com/y3hwbnl5)The countries in or near the western Sahel region — including Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea, Niger, Burkina Faso and Chad — face the same problems that exist in Mali. Skilled workers like teachers and nurses have not been paid for months. Youth can’t get jobs or an education. People lack medical care, especially necessary in this time of plague. Armed jihadist groups are confronting governments’ armed forces, while there are imperialist interventions. Tensions exist between ethnic groups. To a greater or lesser degree, all of Mali’s neighbors are afflicted by these issues.The population of Mali is very young. Half of its inhabitants are under 16 years old. This situation makes the need for education and jobs critical. It also means those who are employed have many dependents.The June 5 Movement is a broad coalition composed of both politically oriented Muslim groups, headed by Imam Mahmoud Dicko, and the anti-capitalist Party for African Solidarity and Independence, headed by Oumar Mariko. One banner in the big Aug. 11 protest read “IBK and his party work for the French.” Sign slogans read: “France is a terrorist state,” “Stop the genocide of France in Mali” and “This regime is Mali’s coronavirus.”In a press release, Mariko points out that IBK has to get permission from France or rebel groups to go to certain areas of Mali. This relationship says the government does not have control of the country and is not secure, as was reported by the Belgian bimonthly magazine Solidaire on July 30. When the Malian army deployed in the northern town of Kidal near the Libyan border, it had to be accompanied by U.N. forces.  (Associated Press, Feb. 13)French troops interveneAfter the defeat of Libyan leader, Moammar Gaddafi, and his murder by U.S.-backed forces in 2011, soldiers in his army, with their heavy weapons, moved south the following year into the Sahel, mainly into Mali and its neighbor Niger. In 2013, when the separatist movement made significant progress in northern Mali and the central government was on the verge of collapse, the French Army intervened rapidly and decisively.This 2013 intervention is well described in “The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu,” written by Joshua Hammer. Hammer also well describes the essential role that U.S. special forces played.Mali is a strategically important country for world imperialism, as it is in the center of West Africa, bordering seven other countries, and is rich in resources. Uranium mined and produced in Niger and Mali provides one-third of France’s electricity.  Mali also has oil and major gold deposits and other minerals. Almost all the African migrants seeking a job or a decent economic future in Europe now come through the Sahel. European Union officials fear that if the governments in the Sahel fall apart, it would cause a steady flow of refugees which  could become a flood EU leaders would find destabilizing. This is a crisis created by years of imperialist underdevelopment and exploitation of Africa.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Prosecutor launches investigation into daily An-Nahar

first_img Receive email alerts March 14, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Prosecutor launches investigation into daily An-Nahar News RSF_en News Organisation LebanonMiddle East – North Africa News Lebanese journalist found shot dead in car Reporters Without Borders wrote today to public prosecutor Adnan Addoum urging him to drop the judicial investigation launched yesterday against the liberal daily An-Nahar, one of Lebanon’s leading newspapers, because of a column on 11 March headlined “Letter to God” that provoked the ire of Muslim leaders.In the article, journalist Akl Awit, who is known as very pious Christian poet, called on God “to no longer remain with his arms crossed and to rein in the United States” in order to prevent an attack on Iraq.”Press freedom is apparently no longer accepted in Lebanon, once an example in the Arab world,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to the public prosecutor. “Lebanon’s judicial system should guarantee freedom of thought and harmony between religions, but instead its inquisitional attitude will just aggravate religious tension.”The letter added: “A newspaper is the victim of violent threats, people call for it to be banned from distribution and burned, and who does the prosecutor decide to prosecute? The newspaper itself! A column is by definition the expression of an opinion and in our view, it contained nothing that could be considered defamatory of any religious belief. There is no justification for this judicial investigation.”Awit’s column angered Sheikh Taha Saboungi, a mufti in Tripoli, the major city of northern Lebanon and one with a Sunni majority. Calling it “blasphemous” and “more harmful than Satanism,” he publicly urged the prosecutor’s office and the information and interior ministries to intervene. On the same day as the column was published, Muslim religious leaders met in Dar El-Fatwa with “youth” representatives from Tripoli and issued a statement calling for distribution of the newspaper in Tripoli to be banned and for all copies to be burned.The newspaper’s owner and managing editor, Gibran Toueni, press organisations and journalists’ associations reacted the same day by condemning the “threats” and “calls for dissension and disorder” and accusing the Muslim leaders of making statements that were “hostile to press freedom.” The newspaper also protested against the “threats” in a letter to the public prosecutor on 12 March.

That early church was built quite literally on faith and charity from remainder brick and an operating budget that turned just about all of its revenue into active ministry. Through 65 years of outreach, LCPC grew to 2,000 active attendees doing ministry throughout Southern California and in 40 countries around the world. In 2010 the church completed a campus expansion which doubled its physical base for ministry and kept its historical sanctuary as the heart of the new grounds.La Cañada Presbyterian Church, 626 Foothill Boulevard, La Cañada, (818) 790-6708 or visit www.lacanadapc.org.center_img Community News 12 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday First Heatwave Expected Next Week Community News HerbeautyGained Back All The Weight You Lost?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyInstall These Measures To Keep Your Household Safe From Covid19HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty7 Most Startling Movie Moments We Didn’t Realize Were InsensitiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyYou Can’t Go Past Our Healthy Quick RecipesHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyIs It Bad To Give Your Boyfriend An Ultimatum?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty11 Signs Your Perfectionism Has Gotten Out Of ControlHerbeautyHerbeauty EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

It is a reformative process, whereby a convict is reintroduced to normal life and, thus, by declining the said benefit on an application… would come within the vice of irrationality and perversity, in spite of the settled position of law,” observed the Bench of Justice GS Sandhawalia. The Court further clarified that in terms of Rule 3(2) of Punjab Good Conduct Prisoners (Temporary Release) Rules, 1963, release of a prisoner on parole can be declined only in case his release is likely to “endanger the security of the State” or “the maintenance of public order”. It held that mere ‘likelihood of committing a crime’ while on parole would not be a sufficient ground to decline temporary release on parole. It said, “Mere likelihood of committing crime is not to be taken as apprehension of a threat to the security of the State or the maintenance of public order. xxx The word ‘Security of the State’ and maintenance of ‘public order’ is intended to prevent grave public disorder, which is not the same as maintenance of law and order and a distinction had to be made. Every breach of peace does not lead to public disorder and an act which disturbs the even tempo of life of the public at large affects the maintenance of public order.” Reliance was placed on Bansi Lal v. State of Punjab, 2016 (4) RCR (Criminal) 1017. The observations were made during hearing of a criminal writ petition, challenging the order of the Deputy Commissioner-cum-District Magistrate, Kapurthala, whereby the Petitioner’s case for grant of parole for a period of six weeks was rejected The Petitioner had been convicted and sentenced for offences under the NDPS Act. He had sought to be released on parole to meet his family and get treatment done of his ailing wife. The request was denied by the Magistrate, citing apprehensions that the Petitioner may resort to the business of sale of intoxicants as 4 more cases of similar nature under the NDPS Act were pending against him. Disagreeing with this stance, the Court held that the statutory power to release a prisoner on parole or furlough is to be exercised objectively, keeping in view the intention of the legislature and the purpose of admitting a prisoner to parole or furlough. It observed that as per Rule 3(2) “It is apparent that the petitioner’s case as such does not fall under the two exclusions, whereby there is danger to the security of the State or is prejudicial to the maintenance of public order.” Case Details: Case Title: Manga v.

Neste’s acquisition of Bunge’s refinery plant in Rotterdam completed

first_img Bunge Loders Croklaan Rotterdam refinery plant. (Credit: Neste.) Neste announced that it would acquire Bunge Loders Croklaan’s refinery plant in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The refinery plant is located next to Neste’s existing biorefinery and it consists of a pretreatment facility, tank farm, jetties and has a pipeline connection to Neste’s site. The acquisition has been approved by regulatory authorities, and the transaction has been completed on 1 March 2021. The transition of operations and employees will be implemented in phases with the refinery plant’s full and modified pretreatment capacity available for processing Neste’s feedstock by the end of 2024.“The completion of this acquisition is an important step forward in delivering on Neste’s global growth strategy in renewables. It allows us to accelerate the scaling up of our renewable raw material pretreatment capacity, which is an important driver for expanding the use of waste and residue feedstocks and increasing our feedstock flexibility. We are committed to increasing the share of waste and residues to 100% of Neste’s total renewable raw material inputs at the latest by 2025, and growing our production platform to help customers reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20 million tons annually by 2030,” says Neste’s President and CEO Peter Vanacker.To meet the growing demand of renewable diesel, sustainable aviation fuel and feedstock for polymers and chemicals, Neste focuses on building a global feedstock and production platform for renewables. The company will expand its renewables annual nameplate production capacity from the current 3.2 to 4.5 million tons in the first quarter of 2023, of which the Singapore facility expansion will provide 1.3 million tons. The now acquired refinery offers further pretreatment capacity and terminal infrastructure to handle the increasingly complex waste and residue feedstocks, and supports further growth in production capacity beyond 2023.Neste has been active in the Netherlands since 2011 when the Rotterdam facility for renewable products started its operations. The Rotterdam facility, together with the company’s Singapore refinery, are the world’s biggest and most advanced renewable fuels refineries. Neste’s Sluiskil plant is responsible for the storage and pretreatment of renewable raw materials, and Neste Demeter B.V. delivers raw materials to the company’s renewable products facility. In 2020, Neste also acquired a terminal in Rotterdam for storing, pretreating and blending renewable waste and residue-based raw materials. In 2019, Neste opened a new office in Hoofddorp, in greater Amsterdam which serves as the global hub for the growing Renewable Aviation business. Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, produced from renewable raw materials is currently available at more than 100 sales points throughout the country.

USA: Fleet Week Concludes at 62nd Annual Seattle Seafair

Throughout the week, U.S. and Canadian Navy ships offered public tours, hosting more than 20,000 visitors.“We talked to some of the Sailors on the ship and got some insight on what it is that they do and one of the first things I recognized was how respectful they are,” Willis said. “They’re all very knowledgeable about their jobs and were all just very nice to talk to.”Ship tourists were able to handle some of the military gear and learned about Navy life at sea.“It’s pretty cool to know that people actually spend part of their lives on these ships and sacrifice to protect our freedom,” said Sarah Meyer, a Seattle resident.Sailors and Marines experienced the local culture, participated in a community relations project at a children’s hospital and received discounts at the Seafair annual golf tournament and Seattle Mariners​ baseball game.“It’s been amazing,” said Midshipman 2nd Class Katherine Stone, attached to Bonhomme Richard. “It’s really inspiring to see people that want to do things for others, especially for the military because we’re out there sacrificing and we don’t ask for a lot, so when people come out and support us like this it’s really nice. The people here are very welcoming.”The Seattle Mariners Navy appreciation night was extra special for Boatswain’s Mate 2nd Class (SW) Jared Thompson, a Bonhomme Richard Sailor who received a team-autographed baseball.“My son is a huge Mariners fan because he was born here, but he was too little to remember ever coming to a game. So, since I was able to come, I got a baseball signed for him, and it’s really awesome,” said Thompson.Seattle residents commented on the importance of Fleet Week and the overall demeanor and professionalism of the Sailors they’d encountered.“I have a great admiration for the men and women serving in our military,” said Toni Freeman, of Seattle. “Seeing so many Sailors walking around in their clean and pressed white uniforms, all of them so respectful and knowledgeable, gives me great confidence in today’s Navy.” Fleet Week activities allow U.S. and Canadian Sailors and Coast Guard personnel to experience the local community and to promote awareness of the maritime forces.“I think events such as Fleet Week are very important so that locals of the communities across America are able to get a better idea of what it is that the Navy does for our country,” said Willis.“The Navy is a fantastic group of men and women and I appreciate and thank them,” Willis added.[mappress]Source: navy, August 9, 2011; View post tag: Concludes View post tag: usa View post tag: News by topic Share this articlelast_img read more
