Marriott para celebrar este domingo la Santa eucaristía y la Reunión de la Ofrenda Unida de Acción de Gracias (UTO).Un coro de cientos de voces, integrado por diversas congregaciones de Indianápolis, junto con órgano y metales interpretó himnos en la ceremonia. Obispos, representantes de UTO e invitados ecuménicos nacionales e internacionales llenaron con sus voces el gran salón del hotel con el himno “Christ is made the sure foundation,” con una melodía del siglo 17 del compositor inglés Ralph Vaughan Williams y de los compositores contemporáneos Joel Martinson de Dallas, Craig Phillips de Los Ángeles y Frank Boles de la iglesia de St. Paul en Indianápolis.La Obispa Presidenta Katharine Jefferts Schori ofició la misa con un mensaje de unidad en la diversidad y en la misión y un llamamiento a la acción. “Un profeta simplemente es alguien enviado a hablar en nombre de Dios.  A decir las cosas tal como son. A veces los profetas dicen palabras de  aliento y fortaleza, (…) y a veces el profeta dice cosas que son difíciles de escuchar  (…) recordándonos que debemos amar a Dios de todo corazón y amar al prójimo como a nosotros mismos –dijo la Obispa Jefferts Schori- “un recordatorio que usualmente obedece a que los que escuchamos no hemos estado cumpliendo con esa expectativa.”“Las palabras significan mucho y como Cristianos lo afirmamos cada vez que nos reunimos para dar gracias por la palabra trascendente y viva entre nosotros. Los profetas hablan y actúan en nombre de Dios, con palabras y acciones de Fortaleza esperanza y reto. Ese ministerio se da en diversas formas”, dijo la Obispa Presidenta.Instándonos a todos y a cada uno a actuar bajo nuestra fe, a pesar de las dificultades, la Obispa Jefferts Schori manifestó: “cuando Jesús impuso sus manos y sanó a unos pocos, aun en un sitio donde pensaban que no tenía mucho que ofrecer, estaba haciendo algo profético (…) ¿Qué pasa con tus manos? Ellas son también instrumentos de sanación, reconciliación, re creación. Muestren sus manos. He aquí un sacramento de la misión de Dios. ¿Cómo vas a usar esas manos en un ambiente impúdico y rebelde? Esa manos pueden ser instrumentos de advertencia, o de aliento y fortaleza…”La Obispa Jefferts Schori hizo un paralelismo entre la misión encomendada por Jesús a los Apóstoles y nuestra misión en el presente: “cuando Jesús fue a los pueblos a enseñar, uso las palabras y sus manos de manera profética, anunciando el reino de Dios, alimentando, sanando y atrayendo gente a la comunidad. Él envió a sus amigos a hacer lo mismo; a pregonar el mensaje de Dios, del Reino de dios, a enseñar a los nuevos creyentes, a sanar a los necesitados, a confrontar las injusticias y a cuidar del jardín que compartimos con toda la creación. Esos cinco pilares de la creación son el trabajo y sino de los profetas. De todos los amigos de Jesús (…) ir como emisarios de la palabra encarnada, ser el don, y de hablar y actuar en nombre del sueño de dios. Adentrarse en el mundo soñado por Dios.”Instándonos a actuar a todos y cada uno, la Obispa Presidenta manifestó: “Dios te está enviando a un mundo rebelde, lleno de gente impúdica y terca (…) algunos de esos somos nosotros. Tu tarea es decir: “escuchen, la cosa es así: Dios tiene en mente un mundo mejor y te necesita para hacerlo realidad; y una vez que comiences la conversación sobre las nuevas de Dios, sigue adelante, sigue mostrándole y diciéndole al mundo como es el sueño de dios, y a la larga el mundo sabrá que ha conocido a un profeta, a toda una comunidad de profetas.”Representantes de La Ofrenda Unida de Acción de Gracias, (UTO) de cada provincia y diócesis, muchas de ellas vestidas con el color azul característico de la organización, se acercaron al altar y entregaron tarjetas con los montos recaudados en el último trienio para la UTO, una entidad que ayuda a costear programas Para aliviar el sufrimiento humano. Las donaciones canalizadas por UTO en su mayor parte provienen de donativos de los Episcopales en las “alcancías azules” que muchos tienen en sus hogares y oficinasEl Obispo de Haití Zache Duracin y el Obispo Sufragante Ogé Beauvoir concelebraron la Eucaristía con Jefferts Schori.

Expats in Spain potential market for British charities

first_img There are almost 750,000 Brits living permanently or partly in Spain, which could open up a new market for British charities, according to a new report.The study, conducted by Clare Garey of Daryl Upsall Consulting International (DUCI), interviewed 50 British nationals from 500 names selected at random from telephone directories in the Costa Blanca area of Spain. In line with demographic data available from the Spanish government, more than three quarters of those interviewed were retired or semi-retired. Just over a quarter of those interviewed said they would like to help a British charity while in Spain, or would consider helping one – representing a potential 182,000 donors. Some already did support charities in the UK, and seemed to be influenced by television advertising. Respondents mentioned that they would consider supporting charities involved in cancer, animals and children. Some also supported charities and NGOs working in Spain.

The profile of the group also correlates well with the target market for legacies. Garey said that a charity might need to invest in a planned giving manager based on the ground in Spain. Clearly [this is] a bold step, but in my view, a charity with enough foresight to do this, and in the right interest area, for example cancer, could do really well, she said. No mail lists of expats in Spain are available at the moment, but there is already interest from some well-known UK charities to use this research to develop a test fundraising programme in Spain. The full results of the survey will be presented in a session at the Institute of Fundraising (Scotland) conference on 2 November.  23 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Professional athlete strikes inspire other workers

first_imgThe following article is based on a talk given during a Sept. 10 webinar, “Workers Defend Black Lives,” sponsored by Workers World Party. View webinar at tinyurl.com/y6m9z593.National Football League football is the most popular U.S. professional sport, with 32 teams at a combined worth of $91 billion.So when Colin Kaepernick first took a knee four years ago to protest police brutality and systemic racism, during the playing of the reactionary national anthem, he took on 32 of the world’s richest team owners.Los Angeles Lakers, including LeBron James, take a knee, inspired by Colin Kaepernick.These bosses, with Trump’s support,  collectively “blackballed” Kaepernick from playing in the NFL.  They claimed his actions would hurt their bottom line, saying fans would be turned off from watching NFL games if any players followed in Kaepernick’s footsteps.The Washington Post released a poll on Sept. 10 showing at least 56% of football fans support NFL players taking a knee. A similar poll back in 2018 by the Wall Street Journal found only 43% fan approval. This is an important barometer indicating a significant political sea change, especially for a sport that has been so militarized and conservatized over the decades.Throughout U.S. society there has been a dramatic shift in terms of how police are viewed, especially since the public lynching of George Floyd in Minneapolis. On May 25 people worldwide saw a Black man being tortured for almost nine minutes by four white police officers. One kept the full weight of his knee on the neck of Floyd, who was screaming “I can’t breathe” and “I want my mother.”Ever since, millions of people have been in the streets, almost daily, demanding to defund and even abolish the police in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Confederate statues, monuments and other visible pro-slavery images have been torn down or forced down by the masses.Athletes strike for Black livesThe protests have had a tremendous impact on athletes in pro sports, beginning with the National Basketball Association and the Women’s National Basketball Association.In late August, following the horrific police shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black father of six shot seven times in the back in Kenosha, Wis., the Milwaukee Bucks carried out a heroic wildcat strike by refusing to play an NBA playoff game in Florida. Other NBA teams, in a show of strong solidarity, also refused to play over the next three days.The WNBA refused to play games for one to two days and every WNBA team locked arms together in solidarity. This prompted players in Major League Baseball, National Hockey League and Major League Soccer, that are a majority white, to refuse to play as a team or as individuals. This is an important step toward building anti-racist unity.The number one tennis player in the world, Naomi Osaka, wore seven different face masks before her tennis matches with one name on each – Ahmaud Arbery, Philando Castile, George Floyd, Trayvon Martin, Elijah McClain, Tamir Rice and Breonna Taylor – before winning the 2020 U.S. Open on Sept. 12. She was thanked by the families of Arbery, Floyd and Martin for using her platform to raise BLM awareness of police violence and systemic racism. Osaka refused to play a match in late August before the U.S. Open in solidarity with the Bucks’ action.Naomi Osaka at U.S. Open Sept.8Why are athletes included in this webinar on workers supporting Black Lives Matter? Sports are immensely popular in the U.S., whether professional or amateur. But what gets lost is that athletes, whether they receive millions of dollars or hundreds of thousands of dollars in salary, are workers.They are gladiators well paid to entertain the masses. In all professional sports, players are represented either by a union or an association that negotiates with the bosses for a collective bargaining agreement. And now growing numbers of college athletes are becoming more conscious as workers and want to be organized.Worker labor, worker powerIt is the players who fill the arenas and the stadiums, not the bosses – who get super-rich in the billions of dollars from the ticket sales, concession sales and especially TV revenues. As with workers in a plant or restaurant, the players’ labor – in the form of skills and talent – produces a commodity, a thing of value that can be bought and sold.It is from workers’ labor that the owner derives profit. If a worker works eight hours, only part of that time covers the cost of the worker’s wage. The rest of the time is unpaid labor and it is from this that the owner gains surplus value. As a class, the bosses keep the surplus value created by the global working class as profits, resulting in an immeasurable gap between rich and poor, and workers feeling disempowered. Building workers’ assemblies can turn this around.Once they refused to play, NBA players felt their power by withholding their labor. With the growing capitalist economic war on workers, spurred on by the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a rising chorus of workers talking about a general strike, harkening back to the general strike of millions of migrant workers on May Day 2006. This general strike would be even more classwide, including both economic and political demands and building off of a one-day national strike led by “essential” workers but also inspired by NBA players.As a Sept. 9 op-ed in the New York Times stated, “In May, essential workers at Amazon, Instacart and other e-commerce and delivery companies staged a one-day national strike demanding better protections and higher pay. In July, thousands of workers from a range of industries walked off the job in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.“At the other end of the pay scale, professional basketball players got their league to adopt a number of social-justice initiatives after they went on strike last month to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Last week, several large unions announced they are considering authorizing work stoppages to push for concrete measures to address racial injustice.”The bourgeoisie, as heard through their mouthpieces like the Times, fear what is on the horizon: even bigger class-wide battles to come.Monica MooreheadThe writer’s father, Isaac Moorehead, was a title-winning coach of men’s and women’s basketball teams for over 40 years at historically Black colleges and universities.   FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Well Ahead of Schedule in Montgomery County

first_img Facebook Twitter Previous articleDavid Virgin May 11th UpdateNext articleGary Wilhelmi Weekly Comment 5/14/2012 Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Well Ahead of Schedule in Montgomery County Home Indiana Agriculture News Well Ahead of Schedule in Montgomery County SHARE In west central Indiana some farmers wrapped up planting in April for the first time ever. David Virgin in Montgomery County is one of those, but in a HAT Field Update Friday morning he said some neighboring farmers played it cautious with the weather and still have some unplanted soybean fields.“Hey this is the time of year, no one has been here. Was it too early to plant beans, should you wait? And there are still some beans to go yet in about a 3-county marginal area. And some people caught a few more rains than we did which put them out of the fields. I have a buddy in Greencastle who should be finishing up with beans, and a friend down in Crawfordsville who should be finishing with corn and beans, so overall still way ahead of schedule.”Virgin says all of his crops are up out of the ground and he is happy with crop progress. There is however some variability in crop development.“My brother planted a test plot about 7 days ago and that corn is up and has actually caught up with what we planted the first of April. Of course we didn’t have enough growing degree days. But really there is no loss or penalty for planting early other than if you had issues with bugs and things like that. So fortunately everything is looking ok.”Last week Purdue warned farmers about the record number of black cutworm in the state and the need to scout and treat. Virgin’s approach this year is proactive.“I am going ahead and putting insecticide in for that. It’s not that terribly expensive and I got bit last year with it so we’re not taking any chances this year. So we’ve been putting it in with our chemical.”Hear more in the HAT Field Update at the Agronomy page, sponsored by Advanced Ag Solutions.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/05/David-Virgin-early-May-update.mp3|titles=David Virgin early May update]Audio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/hoosieragtoday/p/www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/05/David-Virgin-early-May-update.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS By Andy Eubank – May 13, 2012 SHARElast_img read more

Opposing the demand for police custody of Goswami, Senior Advocate Abad Ponda alleged that a civil dispute was being painted as a criminal one. “I am a news anchor and may have said things I shouldn’t say, but this is not the way to silence me. How it can be abetment to Suicide when in my mind it’s a contractual dispute. How is that an instigation for suicide?,” he said for Goswami.”If people start committing suicide in contractual dispute there will be many suicide cases,” he added. He pointed out that Goswami was never called for questioning, even once, before being arrested on the Morning of November 4.There are no reasons made out as to why this court should override magistrate court Order for judicial custody: #Ponda for #ArnabGoswami— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) November 10, 2020 Reliance was placed on Joginder Kumar v. State Of UP, 1994 AIR 1349, whereby the Top Court had held that except in heinous offences, “arrest must be avoided” if a police officer issues notice to person to attend the Station House and not to leave the Station without permission would do. Even before the Bombay High Court, Senior Advocate Harish Salve had contended that there the State is ‘acting out of malice’. Delete Salve refers to the earlier FIRs registered against #ArnabGoswami. There is a patter, he says.HC has protected him from arrest in two FIRs. The TRP case came after that.#ArnabGoswami #BombayHighCourt #RepublicTV— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) November 6, 2020He had submitted there was no personal relationship between Goswami and the deceased and they were merely involved in a commercial transaction. “You have commercial disputes with different people for over two years. You don’t file a suit. You have creditors beating at your door. You kill yourself. There cannot be FIR for abetment to suicide for this. The conduct for abetment to suicide must be direct and proximate… The Magistrate had rightly accepted the closure report of the police in 2019,” he had argued. Reliance was placed on the Supreme Court’s judgment in M Arjunan v. State, where it was held that mere use of abusive words for not paying back money borrowed will not amount to abetment to suicide under Section 306 IPC. This ground has also been taken up in Goswami’s bail application filed before the Raigad Sessions Court. Therein it has been stated that Goswami did not have any direct relationship with the deceased, commercial or otherwise, in his personal capacity. There was a contractual relationship that existed between his company, ARG and the deceased’s company Concorde, which was strictly commercial in nature. He pleaded that it was never his company’s intention to avoid making any payments to Concorde that were legitimately due under the Work Orders. He clarified that all payments legitimately due and payable to Concorde were made by ARG in terms of the Work Orders. However, due to the defects and other breaches of the Work Orders, the last three instalments were withheld till the rectification of such defects in accordance with the terms agreed to between the parties in the Work Orders. Inter alia, Ponda contended that the State had not given any reason as to why the Court should override the CJM’s order. “The police have permission to question me in judicial custody. I have already alleged assault by police. We all know there are ways of assaulting which will not be visible. If I am sent to police custody God bless me,” Ponda argued for Goswami. He told the Court that even in 2018, when he was required for investigation of the case, he remained present, following which an A summary report was filed as there was no material against him. He claimed that the report mentioned that there is no nexus between the three co-accused. Nevertheless, he was picked up by the Police on same charges, and that is the first time he was told that the case against him has been reopened.The hearing at the Alibag Sessions Court is underway. Live updates from the hearing are available here. Goswami was arrested on the morning of November in a case registered by the Raigad Police in 2018 for allegedly abetting the suicide of a 52-year old interior designer named Anvay Naik and his mother Kumud Naik. He was remanded to judicial custody by CJM Alibag and was kept at a local school which has been designated as a COVID-19 centre for the Alibaug prison. On Sunday, he was shifted to Taloja prison in Mumbai after the police alleged that Goswami used mobile phone in custody without permission.Yesterday, a division bench of the Bombay High Court had refused interim bail to Goswami and other accused in the case after observing that the alternate remedy of regular bail under Section 439 of the Code of Criminal Procedure is available to them. The Raigad police had closed the case in April 2019 saying that they did not find evidence against the accused named in the suicide note, including Goswami. However, in May this year, Anvay’s daughter approached the Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh seeking the case be reopened.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Modeling past atmospheric CO2: results of a challenge

first_imgThe models and concepts used to predict future climate are based on physical laws and information obtained from observations of the past. New paleoclimate records are crucial for a test of our current understanding. The Vostok ice core record [Petit et al., 1999] showed that over the past 420 kyr (1 kyr = 1000 years), Antarctic climate and concentrations of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) were tightly coupled. In particular, CO2 seemed to be confined between bounds of about 180 ppmv (parts per million by volume) in glacial periods and 280 ppmv in interglacials; both gases rose and fell with climate as the Earth passed through four glacial/interglacial cycles.last_img read more

VenuWorks has been working with AEG Live for some time to attract such a prestigious country entertainer as Carrie Underwood for this celebration.Seven-time Grammy winner and ACM Female Vocalist of the Year nominee Carrie Underwood has just announced The Storyteller Tour- Stories in the Round will extend through the fall including a stop in Evansville, IN. The in-the round arena tour launched to rave reviews in January and has already played sold out shows across the U.S., including a crowd of over 17,000 at Boston’s TD Garden. Carrie recently returned from Europe where she played five shows in five countries, each part of Country to Country Festival (C2C).“I always love being on the road performing for my fans,” shares Underwood, “but something about this tour feels more magnetic than ever. Having a 360-degree view of the audience gives me the opportunity to connect with more fans and feed off their energy. I can’t wait to continue this tour into the fall!”Concert review critics have applauded Underwood’s confidence and command over the massive stage that spans the entire length of the arena floor. The Washington Post claimed she’s “at the top of her game,” and the Hampton Daily Press said the show’s presentation is overwhelming, from start to finish- a spectacular sensory overload that had the crowd roaring all night long.” Rollingstonecountry.com praised “the in-the-round setting provides each concertgoer with the best experience possible. Simpler still is the storytelling aspect of the show and country music’s reliance on conveying memorable stories in song.” The Boston Globe stated, Underwood “demonstrated that she now truly can stare unflinchingly into those lights and dominate a stage, with confidence, defiance, and a sense of ownership that have been a treat to watch come to fruition. A rock-solid, deftly sequenced hour-and-45-minute long set, which moved from playful to solemn, smooth to twangy, and from cinematic scope to smaller, intimate moments. The most stunning part of the production however, remains Underwood’s voice, strong and nuanced.”last_img read more

Prima goes for local approval

first_imgScorrier-based bakery Prima Bakeries has launched a range of Cornish sliced bread lines in a bid to take on “the big boys”. The six lines feature a brand new Cornish heart logo, and can be distributed across Cornwall.The range consists of three sandwich loaves and three farmhouse loaves, both in white, multigrain and wholemeal.”The sliced bread market is currently dominated by four huge national businesses,” said MD Mark Norton. “Customer demand has prompted us to do much more in the bread area and to offer a genuine Cornish alternative to the national brands.” The loaves are handmade by craft bakers, and the firm said it anticipates the need to recruit more bakers to cope with demand if the early response level is maintained.last_img read more
