Razón: “No se utilizó el debido proceso legislativo”.En momentos en que se cumplen tres meses del inicio de las demostraciones estudiantiles en varias ciudades de Venezuela, la organización internacional Human Rights Watch ha hecho un largo informe en el que se menciona la situación de las cárceles en el país. Dice en parte el informe: “Las cárceles en Venezuela están entre las más violentas deAmérica Latina, allí existe una débil seguridad, infraestructuras en deterioro, hacinamiento por excesos de la población penal, guardias mal entrenados y corrupción rampante… los encargados han permitido que bandas armadas de malhechores tomen el control efectivo de las prisiones”.Un documento emitido por los obispos católicos romanos de Argentina califica la presente situación del país como “enferma de violencia”, en donde los delitos han aumentado en cantidad y agresividad. La presidenta Cristina Fernández tomó las declaraciones como una crítica a su gobierno y dijo que se “pretende reeditar viejos enfrentamientos” como los sucedidos en los años 70. Observadores opinan que este documento rompe la cordialidad que existió entre ambas instituciones desde que Mario Bergoglio, arzobispo de Buenos Aires, asumió el cargo de papa.

Their membership brings to 30 the number of congregations that form The Episcopal Church in South Carolina.The three newest missions’ worship arrangements are not unusual for such fledgling congregations in the Low Country of South Carolina. For instance, the Episcopal Church on Edisto began meeting in a barbecue restaurant and now shares space with New First Missionary Baptist Church, an African-American Baptist church that worships in a newer building next door.Members of the Episcopal Church of the Messiah in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina march up the aisle of Church of the Holy Communion in Charleston Nov. 15 to be welcomed as a mission congregation of the Episcopal Church in South Carolina.

Henry Stuhr’s West Ashley Chapel. In October, the mission congregation held an animal blessing service at the dog park down the street.Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Summerville shares space with an African-American congregation, Wesley United Methodist Church, and holds Sunday school in the public library around the corner.And St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Conway worships in the interdenominational Lackey Chapel of Coastal Carolina University.“Unlikely groups have been the most welcoming of us,” South Carolina Bishop Provisional Charles vonRosenberg told ENS.Beginning November 2012, and in some cases earlier, many Episcopalians felt forced to leave their parish homes in a dispute led by then-diocesan Bishop Mark Lawrence over policy decisions made by the wider Episcopal Church. Lawrence was deemed to have renounced his Episcopal orders.Members of the East Cooper Episcopal Church in the Charleston area accept applause at Church of the Holy Communion in Charleston Nov. 15 after being officially welcomed as a mission congregation of the Episcopal Church in South Carolina. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENSThose who wished to remain in The Episcopal Church are now part of what is known as The Episcopal Church in South Carolina. The entity has been so named since Jan. 26, 2013 in order to comply with a temporary restraining order that prevented the group from using the diocesan seal and the names “The Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of South Carolina,” “The Diocese of South Carolina” and “The Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina.”“The Exodus event seems to relate to our experiences in various ways,” vonRosenberg said during his address to the church’s 224th annual convention Nov. 15. “For instance, I have heard from many of you about the sense and reality of oppression in this part of the church, in previous times. Then, a kind of separation and exodus took place. And now, people of God, we find ourselves traveling through the wilderness.”Theirs is not a barren wilderness, however, vonRosenberg said during an ENS interview prior to the convention. In addition to numerical growth, there has been spiritual growth.“There’s meaning here, which is deep and profound. It has to do with building community, knowing what is important, claiming that and wanting to go forward with that conviction,” he said. “We’re not looking back because the future is bright and what’s in the past is something that we don’t need or want to relive.”Or as Andrea McKellar, St. Francis’ senior warden, put it: “It’s been very joyful. It’s a truly resurrection experience that we went from what seemed in the first days to be the worst situation in the world to now I wouldn’t change anything about it.”These eight new worshiping communities are pilgrims, journeying towards a destination they may not yet see clearly but knowing they are committed to being Episcopalians, the bishop and others said.“There’s a holy patience” among those pilgrims, said the Ven. Calhoun Walpole, who serves as archdeacon of The Episcopal Church in South Carolina.“People know that they won’t see the fruits. There’s a deep sense that I see; a deep understanding that the harvest is not ours; that it can never be ours, it’s the Lord’s; that we are here laboring in these fields right now, laboring for future generations,” said Walpole, who is also vicar of Grace Episcopal Church in Charleston. “You boil that all down and it’s the church being the church. It’s what the church has done in every time in every generation in every place. We just have the gift of experiencing a heightened sense of that reality.”Those people who are experiencing that reality have made the sacrifice of leaving church buildings that held parts of their families’ histories and in some cases family and friends who also carried that history, vonRosenberg and Walpole said. And Walpole suggested that other sacrifices are being made as well, acknowledging that some Episcopalians have stayed in the parishes that have followed Lawrence’s lead.“I think the story that is not told for obvious reasons is the story of those people who have made the decision to stay in their respective parishes that broke away,” Walpole explained. “I believe those numbers are large and I believe those people, while they may not even use the language of ‘call’ or even ‘sacrifice,’ knowingly or unknowingly are continuing to bear witness quietly to the presence of The Episcopal Church in those parishes.”In the midst of The Episcopal Church’s reorganization in South Carolina, its members were called during the Nov. 14-15 convention to look outward, as well as inward. The convention’s theme was “Christ to the world we bring.” Its leaders wanted to start to change the church’s focus from survival to mission, while reestablishing a sense of Episcopal and Anglican identity and accountability. VonRosenberg said the leadership wants to encourage all of its congregations, and especially its start-ups, “to be recognized in the larger community for a purpose which involves the mission of Jesus.”More than 300 people attended the convention, including 77 lay delegates and 36 clergy members. Information about the work of the convention, held at Church of the Holy Communion in Charleston, is here. The Rev. Thomas Brackett, Episcopal Church missioner for new church starts and missional initiatives, conducted a series of workshops on Nov. 14 as part of that effort. The Rev. Canon Mark Stevenson, domestic poverty missioner for The Episcopal Church, also spoke to the convention.And former Southern Malawi Bishop James Tengatenga, who chairs the Anglican Consultative Council, was the preacher during the opening Eucharist. Tengatenga’s presence was meant to show the church and the wider community that, in vonRosenberg’s words during his address, “The Episcopal Church is the only recognized member of the Anglican Communion in this country.”During the business part of the convention, delegates unanimously rolled back constitutional and canonical changes made by Lawrence-led conventions to pull the church away from The Episcopal Church. Chancellor Thomas Tisdale told the convention that the Nov. 15 corrective actions had the effect of “making us a part of The Episcopal Church.”Legal work remains to be done. There are court actions focused on which group should have legal control of the Diocese of South Carolina. And while vonRosenberg and other leaders do not want to focus the Episcopalians on the court actions, those legal cases do make a claim on the organization’s attention and finances. And the bishop says they represent important work for the Episcopalians’ reorganization and their future “in this part of South Carolina.” Details about the court actions are here.Still, vonRosenberg told ENS, Episcopalians in South Carolina are telling him that “we’re not looking back because the future is bright and what’s in the past is something that we don’t need or want to relive.”Eve Pinckey, a founding member of the Episcopal Church in Okatie who now serves on its vestry, describes it this way: “We’re going to grow, grow, grow and love, love, love one another, just as we always have. It’s going to be wonderful. I can’t wait.”– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The energy was so positive and the sentiment a blessing! How reminiscent of the text that says in the Psalms (133) “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” God is gracious and great in his people! Alleluia! Cathedral Dean Boise, ID November 26, 2014 at 8:01 am Nice article, Mary Frances! I was really encouraged by the hopefulness of the leadership that I encountered there during their convention in Charleston.

Indiana Hoping for Number 1 Ag Census Response Rate

first_imgHome News Feed Indiana Hoping for Number 1 Ag Census Response Rate Indiana Hoping for Number 1 Ag Census Response Rate Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE All U.S. farmers should by now have a 2012 Census of Agriculture, mailed around the beginning of the year by USDA. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack wants farmers to fill it out and return it because “it is one of the most important tools for providing certainty to producers and sustaining the unlimited economic potential of rural America.”Acting director of NASS in Indiana, Greg Matli, has another reason to hope for good participation from Hoosier farmers.“Indiana has always been well represented and I think we were ranked number 2 in response rates the last census, 2007, so I’d like to get number 1 this time,” he told HAT. “So if I could get the help of the Indiana farmers to help us attain the number 1 response rate in the country, that’d be great.”Ask Matli who uses the census and he asks who doesn’t? The data in each ag census is used in many ways and can be critical to future economic expansion in rural Indiana.“Well I think if you look back over the history of Indiana you’ll see that we had dairies move in, ethanol move in, we had some large hog operations move in. they’re all looking at it from production side and is the feed source there, is the rail system there, is the highway system there, is there going to be enough production in the counties where they want to build a facility to support that facility? All those types of industries are going to look at the agricultural data collected in the ag census to help make those decisions on the location of where they might expand in the future.”Matli says about 80,000 surveys were mailed to Indiana farms, and just $1,000 of annual agricultural sales qualifies an operation as a farm. He says if sales come in at or near that level, the data is still important to the overall Indiana census picture.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2013/01/Greg-Matli-on-2012-Census.mp3|titles=Greg Matli on 2012 Census]Completed forms are due by February 4, 2013. Farmers can return their forms by mail or online by visiting a secure website, www.agcensus.usda.gov. Federal law requires all agricultural producers to participate in the Census and requires NASS to keep all individual information confidential.Census information helps USDA monitor trends and understand the needs in agriculture to better align its products and services. Ways the department used Census data in the past include:•           Helping to ensure the future of the agriculture industry in America, by developing programs and priorities to help new and beginning farmers get started and stay in business. This was supported after the Census reported the average age of a farmer continued to increase from 50.3 in 1978 to 57.1 in 2007. And, while the majority of farm operators are between the age of 45 and 64, the fastest growing group of farm operators is those 65 years and older.•           Looking at where and how to provide expanded and improved Internet access and services to rural America. The Census provided comprehensive county-level data on Internet access and revealed that 57 percent of all farmers had Internet access in 2007, up from 50 percent in 2002. Of those producers accessing the Internet, 58 percent reported having a high-speed connection.•           Illustrating the changing nature and needs of agriculture, the number of farms that produced 75% of production declined from 144,000 in 2002 to 125,000. At the same time, the number of small farms counted in the 2007 Census of Agriculture represented 91 percent of all farms. Overall small farms increased 1 percent from 2002 to 2007.Questions can be answered with a call to 1-888-4AG-STAT (1-888-424-7828.)[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2013/01/Greg-Matli-full-HAT-interview.mp3|titles=Greg Matli full HAT interview] Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Jan 21, 2013 Previous articleCountryMark Program Can Prolong Engine LifeNext articleKelsay Joins Dow AgroSciences Andy Eubanklast_img read more

The Division Bench comprising Justices Tarlok Singh Chauhan and Jyotsna Rewal Dua set aside two conditions in GO dated May 27 that (i) restricted private schools from depriving any student from online classes for non-payment of tuition fee and (ii) precluded them from charging fine for or striking of a student’s name for non-payment of fees. “In case, the privately managed schools cannot authoritatively charge even the ‘tuition fee’ then it is beyond comprehension as to how they will pay the monthly salary/emoluments to not only their teaching but non-teaching staff as well. It cannot be assumed that private schools have unending supply of reserve funds with them,” the bench observed. The Court held that expecting the schools to neither stop payment of monthly salary nor reduce the existing total emoluments being paid to their teaching and non-teaching staff but at the same time permitting the schools to collect only the tuition fee, that too on monthly basis without authorizing them to compulsorily realize even this tuition fee is an “unreasonable restriction”. It ordered, “Private schools henceforth are allowed to charge monthly tuition fees and are authorized to enforce collection of the same. The past tuition fees due towards the private schools are also permitted to be realized by them without charging any fine/late fees after giving two months notice.” However, the Bench clarified that the competent authority of the schools shall examine the genuine representation of a parent regarding his/her inability to pay the tuition fee due to financial issues arising out of the lockdown. The same will have to be decided ‘sympathetically’ within one week. The Court further observed that the commercial scenario at present is different from what prevailed a few months ago, amid the lockdown. It therefore directed the State Government to revisit and re-examine all the conditions imposed by it upon private schools, and issue a fresh order within four weeks. Particularly, the Court has asked the Government to consider whether it would be logical to prevent the schools from charging any other fee, apart from tutiton fees, given that the schools continue to bear infrastructural expenses. This direction was made was after the private schools argued that apart from tuition fees, they are also entitled to collect the transport charges. “The transport charges cover not only the maintenance and fuel of vehicles but also cover the insurance payments, loan installments, taxes, salaries of transport staff,” the Petitioner argued. It was further submitted that annual charges levied by the schools amongst others cover repayment of loans taken for building infrastructure of the school, for carrying out further improvements in setting up online educational facilities, payment to software hosts, proposed sanitization of premises on reopening etc. The matter is now listed for compliance on October 5, 2020.

Aniah Blanchard died from gunshot wound, authorities say

first_imgAuburn Police Department(NEW YORK) — Investigators have determined that Aniah Blanchard, the 19-year-old stepdaughter of UFC heavyweight fighter Walt Harris who disappeared in October, died of a gunshot wound.Lee County District Attorney Brandon Hughes did not elaborate on where Blanchard was shot but told reporters in a news conference Monday that her manner of death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner.Blanchard was last seen at a convenience store in Auburn, Alabama, on Oct. 23. Ibraheem Yazeed, 29, has been charged with capital murder in Blanchard’s death, Hughes said, adding that the state plans to seek the death penalty.Yazeed was seen on surveillance video inside the convenience store at the same time as Blanchard, and a witness outside the store saw him force Blanchard into her black 2017 Honda CRV, according to charging documents.He was arrested on Nov. 7 in Escambia County, Florida, and was initially charged with kidnapping in the first degree, a designation that includes the intent to inflict physical injury.Blanchard’s remains were found in a wooded area in Macon County, Alabama, about 40 miles east of the convenience store, on Nov. 25. Her car, which had blood evidence “indicative of someone suffering a life-threatening injury,” was found abandoned at an apartment complex in Montgomery, Alabama, about 50 miles away from the convenience store. The blood was later determined to be Blanchard’s.Two other people have been arrested in Blanchard’s disappearance.Antwain “Squirmy” Fisher, 35, was arrested on Nov. 22 and charged with first-degree kidnapping. He is accused of “providing transportation to Yazeed, and disposing of evidence,” according to a charging affidavit.David Johnson Jr. was arrested in Montgomery, Alabama, on Nov. 25 and charged with hindering the prosecution in Blanchard’s disappearance. Yazeed was allegedly at Johnson Jr.’s home Nov. 7 before he left for Florida, ABC Birmingham affiliate WBMA-TV reported, citing court documents. Authorities allege that Johnson Jr. knew that Yazeed was wanted by police at the time.Yazeed is the “lone person” responsible in Blanchard’s murder, Hughes said, promising that while justice for Blanchard would “not be swift,” it would “be thorough.”“This case has absolutely shaken this community to its core, he said.Harris took to Instagram last week to describe the “unbearable” pain he felt after losing his stepdaughter.“Right now nothing makes sense and I’m so lost,” Harris wrote. “I just want you back.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

‘We’re not apologising’: Novatek exec says oil and gas needs to change climate change narrative

first_imgThe Russian natural gas giant’s deputy chairman says the oil and gas sector doesn’t get enough credit for delivering economic prosperity Novatek exec Mark Gyetvay on why oil and gas industry deserves more creditAccording to Gyetvay, more than 900 million people don’t have access to electricity and 500 million are without any means of cooking food.The International Energy Agency (IEA) also estimates that 450 million more people in India and China have gained access to clean cooking since 2010 and the Novatek exec believes this highlights another “tremendous job” by the industry in bringing people out of poverty.He said the high number of people still without access shows there is a big challenge to meet great demand for power rather by increasing supply, rather than decreasing it as many green groups have suggested must happen.Gyetvay was also keen to address the role society can play, adding: “The energy transition is real – we’re moving away from the idea that we’re wasting – but you walk into every house and you expect that when you turn on the light switch, the lights go on.“If you need to charge your iPhone or Samsung phone, the moment that power goes off, the dialogue changes and there’s a different problem.“Society needs to understand this. We can’t live today without energy. Why not turn off the power grid for a month and then we’ll see a different set of dialogue.“When we look at this whole carbon emissions problem, the energy industry is responsible for about 20%. So 80% comes from the consumer side and we need to look at the whole picture.“Let’s not just focus solely on oil and gas companies as a culprit, and instead see where we can make a difference in that 80% – within areas that people don’t want to talk about despite it being a major part of the problem.” Novatek exec Mark Gyetvay says oil and gas industry needs to have better communication with environmentalistsReferring to US Democratic nominee hopeful Bernie Sanders’ plans to place heavy taxes on energy companies, Gyetvay said: “We have the energy industry on the right and the green movement on the left. Without doubt, the energy industry has moved to the middle.“We’ve made a significant amount of effort to clean up our business. The investments we’ve made are enormous.Novatek deputy chairman Mark Gyetvay (Credit: Oil and Gas Council)“We have to stop and look at this from a realistic perspective and take a more aggressive stand in how we deliver our message because the industry has done a tremendous job and we’re not getting recognised for it.“There are too many CEOs sitting in front of people on stages like this and apologising.“Well we’re not apologising – we need to fight back and show the world we’re taking these steps so that when we talk to the left and the green movement, we don’t get shouted down.“There’s no dialogue today. There’s just shouting from one side.” Oil and gas industry needs to change narrative around its role in climate changeThe unapologetic tone was mirrored by Steve Holliday, president of the UK-based Energy Institute professional body that organised the conference, when opening the event on Tuesday.He spoke about his pride in what the energy industry had achieved in changing the world – something he believes it could do again.“There’s a widespread – and to my mind misguided – view that the oil and gas sector can only ever be the problem.“It’s wrong because the sector is capable of incredible things.“Over this coming decade, as the impacts of climate change bite harder and the calls for action grow louder, the credibility of this sector will be tested.“To pass that test, the industry needs to show demonstrable, rapid change, now.”In the same panel discussion as Gyetvay, Katie Dourian, the World Energy Council’s regional manager for the Middle East and Gulf states, pointed out how oil and gas wouldn’t simply be removed from the global energy mix.But she admitted that “changing the narrative” was crucial for the oil and gas sector to show the public it isn’t just polluting the atmosphere but also developing carbon capture and storage technology that is already reducing emissions in some areas.Kate Dourian, the World Energy Council’s regional manager for the Middle East and Gulf states, speaking at IP Week in London, alongside Mark Gyetvay, left (Credit: Twitter/Energy Institute)“It’s about bringing society into the conversation because at the end of the day, they are the shareholders but don’t really have a voice,” she said.“They have people at Davos talking down to them, screaming and shouting about how bad it is.“Apart from a few areas where you are getting a lot of emissions like US methane, they are trying to do something about it.”center_img Mark Gyetvay’s comments about how the oil and gas sector hasn’t been recognised for the economic prosperity it’s created were greeted with mass applause at IP Week in London Oil and gas companies need to stop apologising for their role in climate change because they’re already doing a “tremendous job” in cutting emissions, claims the exec of an industry giant. Mark Gyetvay, deputy chairman of the management board at Russia’s second-largest natural gas firm Novatek, believes the sector hasn’t had a chance to demonstrate environmental changes it has already made because it instead gets “shouted down”.His comments about how society also needs to take more responsibility for reducing carbon emissions were greeted with a large round of applause yesterday (26 February) at energy industry conference IP Week in London, where many of his views were backed up by other speakers. Society’s contribution to climate change needs emphasising moreOil majors like BP have been the focus of protests by environmental campaigners in recent years due to their perceived lack of interest and investment in decarbonisation.But Colette Cohen – CEO of the Aberdeen-based Oil & Gas Technology Centre, a publicly-funded group that aims to transform the North Sea oil basin into a net-zero energy producer – believes society needs to take a look at itself rather than just propose shutting down oil and gas.“There’s a very naïve conversation in the UK about oil and gas,” she said. “Ultimately, people want to live the lives they currently have and it’s okay if the pain comes from large industry, but not from their personal lives.“The reality is that oil and has enables more than 17,000 daily products, from your phone and holidays to shampoo and PCs.“Oil and gas isn’t just going to disappear in the next five or 10 years – it’ll probably be more like 20 or 30 years. So this is truly a transition.”last_img read more
