Photo/Lambeth Palace[Lambeth Palace] Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams last weekend praised young people in Christchurch, New Zealand, who volunteered after the devastating earthquake in February 2011, calling them “a flash mob of grace.” Speaking to the student ‘volunteer army’ at a concert thrown in their honor on Nov. 3, the archbishop celebrated the 75,000 hours of work they contributed to help their stricken city in New Zealand.Nine thousand volunteers worked with contractors to clear 360,000 tonnes of silt and sludge caused by the earthquake, and provided meals, clean water and guidance to residents.Reflecting on the concert, Williams said he was struck by “a vivid sense that things could be different.”“I was surrounded by people who were in their own way, though they would all have been deeply embarrassed by it, showing holiness,” he told a congregation at St. Christopher’s Church, Avonhead, the next day. “That is, they were showing that something could be different. They were trusting in the belief that they would see something change.”Another mark of a holy person is someone who brings joy to those around them, Williams added.On his final international duty before standing down, the archbishop was visiting Christchurch to learn how its people are faring almost two years after a magnitude-6.3 earthquake killed 185 people, injured thousands, and left the city partially ruined.Kicking off the weekend at the Marae diocesan centre, Williams set the tone for his visit by saying that Christians ought to embody God’s promise “to recreate lives that have been scarred and shaken and broken.”“We are promising ourselves as church to this place, this soil, this community, these people,” he said. “Christ’s body on earth, his people, his family are here to make real Christ’s testimony, Christ’s witness to the God who promises to re-settle and rebuild. Christ’s body on earth is here to announce its commitment to every part of the community, every dimension of its life.”The archbishop added that disasters challenge those who go through them. “They challenge our hearts and our imagination. They challenge us not to fall apart as individuals or as communities. They challenge us to find ways of being together more deeply and more faithfully than ever.”The Christchurch visit took place during the mission weekend in the program for ACC-15, with other Anglican Consultative Council members joining parish services across New Zealand.“This is the beginning of a vision for the whole of this country and I’d like to think…a vision for the whole of the world,” the archbishop said. “If anybody doubts for a moment that it’s worth doing something small for the sake of the community, they can think again. We see how something small can make a big difference. I’m a Christian priest and I believe in a God who starts small and ends big. So, start small. Whatever you can do… that makes a little bit of difference, that’s your part in making a big difference.”On Sunday morning, Nov. 4, the archbishop presided at a service of choral Eucharist at Christ’s College chapel, which has been a temporary home to the Christchurch Cathedral congregation since the earthquake.He then visited the city’s Red Zone where ruined buildings – including the cathedral – await demolition or repair.The mayor of Christchurch, Bob Parker, who accompanied the archbishop, said planners wanted not just to rebuild, but to re-imagine the city for the people of Christchurch.The archbishop also met with parishioners of Avonside in the city’s badly damaged eastern suburbs, where one of New Zealand’s oldest Anglican churches was reduced to rubble. Church members now meet and worship in an office space, but are determined to rebuild and continue their ministry to the neighboring retirement home and local community.Williams said he was stunned by the scale of destruction. “Driving around I thought the only thing I’ve seen like this really is when I was in Beirut a few years ago.”“I’ve seen pictures, but it’s different when you see a great historical building very much loved in ruins like that.”The archbishop gave a message of hope on his final international duty. “I really hope and pray that the strength and imagination that is obviously around here will contribute to make this city something of a beacon.”Diocese of Christchurch Bishop Victoria Mathews said: “To be doing this when we’re all exhausted and just wondering where we’re going to get the strength to continue on the recovery process, is just wonderful.”Deepening his contact with local young people, the archbishop also spent time with members of the Christchurch diocese’s young adult movement, the Society of Salt and Light. Sitting on the steps of the dais, he spoke on the topic of “holiness.”“The way that Jesus talks about [holiness] in the Last Supper is helpful. Holiness there is seen as going into the heart of where it’s most difficult for human beings to be human. So Jesus goes outside the city to the place where people suffer and are humiliated. He goes to the place where people throw stuff out including other people. Outside the camp—in the language of the old Testament—outside the settlement. And that’s the first thing to bear in mind of the Christian idea of holiness. It’s something to do with going where it’s most difficult in the name of the Jesus who went where it was most difficult. And he wants us to be holy like that.”The archbishop added: “We start then on the path of holiness by two very simple things…that is looking at Jesus, looking at what God is like, looking at the gospel and looking at what all of that means and by exploring. Exploring where human beings are, what their needs are and what they’re calling you to do; how you may help make them more human.”Williams returned to Auckland Sunday evening to rejoin the Anglican Consultative Council for its final three days.

This house was designed to function as a “club”, according to the premises of the owner, who lives in it with his two children – teenagers at the time. Located in a condominium in Piracicaba, Sao Paulo, the residency program was developed around the passions of residents, wine and music. Arranged along a site of 808,92 m², the project was planned on 3 floors, in order to take advantage of the natural slope of the land. On the lower floor – ground floor for the garage entrance, there are the service equipment, sauna and locker room for the pool, as well as a mechanical workshop / home office and a wine cellar. In the owner’s words “a cave”.Save this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioSave this picture!ColagemThe social access is through an internal garden, with a small lake, protected by a pergola. The architects’ intention was precisely to create a transition area, just after the entrance, to reveal the huge living room, which works in a hybrid way: with all the doors retracted inside the walls, it becomes a huge veranda, surrounded by a tropical garden. The integration of spaces is discreetly ordered. Two cubes lined with panels hide toilet near the entrance and the kitchen, just behind the bar counter. A vintage table was transformed into a DJ table, receiving pick-ups and other equipment. The granilite floor was prepared at the time of concreting the counterfloor and subsequently polished, giving an industrial and stripped appearance. The kitchen has a terrace, where barbecues are prepared in a parrilha. Complementing the leisure program, there is a home theater and a guest room on this floor. The intimate sector is on the upper floor, a block of exposed concrete, supported on the long social area.Save this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioDuring the beginning of the works, a series of rocks were removed from the ground to make the foundations. The black granite was blown up, and with these rocks, all the perimetral walls of the house were covered. “Coincidentally, it was the exact number,” says GT. To contrast with the dark stone, the idea came to change the specification of the room’s brise soleil, which were originally made of wood, to orange-colored metal protection. This tone ended up becoming the signature of this project, being replicated on the dining table, one of the architect’s most iconic designs, and produced especially for him in orange corian.Save this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioProject gallerySee allShow lessLakeview Wine Co.

Anthony Nolan receives its largest trust grant to date

first_imgAnthony Nolan receives its largest trust grant to date The Jack Petchey Foundation is to give £619,000 to Anthony Nolan, the charity that saves the lives of people with blood cancer who need a blood stem cell, or bone marrow, transplant. The grant represents the largest single charitable trust donation that the charity has ever received. It marks the beginning of an ongoing partnership between the two organisations.The Foundation, founded by businessman Jack Petchey CBE, encourages young people to realise their potential and contribute to society. The Foundation decided to support Anthony Nolan after it learnt that the charity is urgently trying to recruit more young donors to its stem cell register.Trudy Kilcullen, Chief Operating Officer at the Foundation, said: “We want young people to play a full part in society, and signing up to donate their blood stem cells is one of the greatest things they can do, as they could help save somebody’s life. We also know that there is a shortage of young donors, especially young men and those from different ethnic backgrounds, so we hope that this donation will harness the energy of our young people and enable the charity to save even more lives.”There are currently over 425,000 people on the Anthony Nolan register, but the charity can only find a match for half the people who come to them in need of a potentially lifesaving transplant. Anthony Nolan aims to grow the register to one million potential donors so they can help save more lives.www.jackpetcheyfoundation.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 19 June 2011 | News Tagged with: Funding  18 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.

Stop execution of Rodney Reed

first_imgRodney Reed’s mother, Sandra Reed, opens rally on July 24.WW photo: Gloria RubacBastrop, Texas — After Texas death row prisoner Rodney Reed’s family and supporters rallied and marched at the Bastrop County Courthouse and then took over Main Street for an impromptu march on July 24, they met in a community park to make more plans to stop Reed’s scheduled execution date of Jan. 14, 2015.The goals of the trip to Bastrop were to demand that District Attorney Bryan Goertz drop the execution date and test all the crime scene evidence for DNA.“By the time we left Bastrop, we were optimistic that we can stop this miscarriage of justice,” said Allison Hubbard, a member of the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement.The day began with a rally that heard encouraging words from Sandra Reed, Rodney Reed’s mother, who told the crowd: “We are not giving up! They know Rodney is innocent and so do we. We will fight until my son is home with us. This district attorney needs to withdraw the date and decide to test all the evidence so Rodney’s innocence can be proven.”Supporters included the spouse and mother of Juan Balderas, sent to death row in March after a farce of a trial in Houston. His mother, Maria Reyes, shared in Spanish that as a mother she knew what Reed’s mother was feeling, but “together we can fight for what is right.” Balderas’ spouse, Yancy Escobar, translated for her.Another man who fought to prove his innocence for many years is Hank Skinner, who finally got some DNA testing even though the crucial piece of evidence had “disappeared.” His spouse, Sandrine Ageorges-Skinner, spoke about how having a decent judge is crucial to receiving justice.Visiting judge sets execution dateJust one week earlier, visiting Judge Doug Shaver callously set an execution date for Reed even though both the prosecutors and defense agreed to DNA testing. Now Reed must live on the “Death Watch” section of an already repressive and isolated death row.Roderick Reed, one of Rodney’s five brothers, told the demonstrators at the rally that the corrupt system must be replaced with justice. He declared, ”Let’s march on Main Street!” Shoppers in the quaint specialty stores that have become a tourist attraction in this small town just 30 minutes from the state capital came out to see the protest with its banners and signs held high, and many indicated their support. There were resounding cheers and words of encouragement from onlookers, many of whom were familiar with the Reed case.Reed, who is African American, was sent to death row in 1998 for the crime of raping and killing Stacy Stites, a young woman he was having a secret affair with. Stites was white. The only physical evidence connecting him to Stites’ murder was a semen sample because he had a consensual sexual relationship with her. There were no fingerprints in her vehicle, no murder weapon or other evidence. Reed was tried by an all-white jury from this small town, which still has a monument to “Confederate heroes [sic]” on the courthouse lawn.After the successful morning protests, bolstered family members and supporters met in the park for lunch and to strategize further activities. Film showings of “State v. Reed” in Houston, attending the prison board meeting in late August and holding a community meeting in Austin were put on the map.The Jim Crow justice system in Bastrop is beginning to crumble. More and more people do not want to have a Troy Davis in Texas. Just a few days before this event, eight retired federal and state judges filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court asking them to accept the appeal from Reed and return his case to trial court.Bastrop District Attorney Goertz, Judge Doug Shaver and the cops are sticking to their racist application of what they call justice. But those supporting Reed are determined to have his name added to the growing list at the National Registry of Exonerations so he can come home to his community.Current information can be found at facebook.com/texasinjustice.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

In Los Angeles, unionists support Puerto Rico recovery

first_imgThe Latino Caucus of Service Employees Union (SEIU) Local 721 held a rally and “die-in” Oct. 5 to protest the genocidal-like neglect of the U.S. government against the people of Puerto Rico who are suffering from the effects of Hurricane Maria. The suffering is compounded by the Trump administration’s sabotage of relief efforts and denial of assistance offered by other countries such as Cuba.Lawrence Reyes, an SEIU Latino Caucus member as well as a member of the Puerto Rican Alliance, was one of the key organizers of the event. Reyes told Workers World, “We know that the reason Puerto Ricans are being neglected in the USA is because most Puerto Ricans are Indigenous, Black or Brown and also because they are subjects of U.S. colonialism. So, as a result they are not respected, have no economic sovereignty and have been blocked by the Jones Act.”Reyes pointed out the cost of U.S. citizenship: “Due to the Foraker Act the Puerto Rican people had to fight in World War I and all the subsequent wars that the U.S. empire has started. In other words, that act allowed the Puerto Rican people to become citizens, then cannon fodder in their wars.”Like many progressive people and organizations that have held protests and given aid in solidarity, SEIU and other unions were quick to respond to the recovery effort. “The SEIU Latino Caucus International Conference got together in New York City on Sept. 28,” said Reyes, “and representation from Puerto Rico was not there because of the disaster of Hurricane Maria. All the locals that were represented there raised $100,000 in 15 minutes for disaster relief, with other unions donating as well. It was an international effort.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

National Food and Ag Business Conference to Dive Deep into Data…

Purdue University’s Center for Food and Agricultural Business is hosting the conference in West Lafayette on November 6-7.“This isn’t big data, this is looking at how data is evolving,” said Purdue’s Brady Brewer, assistant professor of agricultural economics. “One of the key findings from the research that we’re looking at is how data is shaping the farmer of tomorrow.”He said Purdue will share research about that evolving value chain. It was pulled from two different surveys they conducted.“One was directed at the farmer and then the survey was at five various levels of the ag value chain,” he said. “So, we go to farmer all the way to the ag retailers to as close to the consumer as we can get. The farmer survey is focused on what the farmer of today is using data for, are they collecting it, how they’re analyzing it, and then what decisions they’re making from that data and also where they’re seeing data going into the future.”The post-farm gate survey questioned first handlers of ag input providers all the way to the ag retailer.“We looked at where they’re using data, how much they’re using data, are they sharing data across the value chain and then what decisions do they think they’re going to be making from data in the future.”Panel discussions will include farmers and professionals from across food and agricultural business, “speaking on their perceptions on data within their company, how they’re using it, where they see it going in the future,” Brewer told HAT. “We have a farmer panel with some leading farmers from Indiana and Minnesota sharing their insights about how their data is driving what they do on the farm. We have representatives from John Deere, Syngenta, from Ceres coming to share their insights from how their companies are using it and how it’s shaping what they do within the ag value chain.”Brewer said agriculture is very competitive and advantages over competition in many cases are available with data analytics. The recent research is the first comprehensive look at the entire data environment from farmer to consumer and they will share detailed results at the conference.Brewer along with Dave Downey, Scott Downey, Michael Gunderson, Jayson Lusk, and other faculty members will present at the conference. Research results will be shared by value chain segment, followed by a panel debrief with those industry experts.The program registration fee is $1,395 per person. Attendance in teams of three or more participants from an organization is strongly encouraged.

€476K approved for Donegal projects under LEADER programme

first_img €476K approved for Donegal projects under LEADER programme Homepage BannerNews News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Facebook WhatsApp Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Donegal’s Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) has this week approved €476,000 for 14 new projects under the LEADER Rural Development Programme.The projects funded this week range from festivals to arts, sport and heritage projects to capital works type initiatives in community centres.Chair of the Donegal LCDC Cllr Martin McDermott believes that these funds are instrumental to support development in rural areas in Donegal saying “we have identified a number of objectives in Donegal that we want to see achieved through the LEADER Rural Development Programme including rural tourism, enterprise development, rural towns, broadband, basic services targeting hard to reach communities, rural youth, sustainable use of water resources, improvement of local biodiversity and the development of renewable energy.”The LEADER Rural Development Programme which runs from 2014 to 2020 aims to improve the quality of life in rural areas and to encourage diversification of economic activity in rural areas and almost €13m has been allocated to Donegal under this Programme. In Donegal three key themes have been identified in the roll out of this programme including Economic Development, Enterprise Development and Job Creation, Social Inclusion and Rural Environment.This funding programme is administered by four implementing partners in Donegal including Donegal Local Development Company (DLDC), Inishowen Development Partnership, Údarás na Gaeltachta and Comhar na nOileán and the final decisions on project funding rests with the Donegal LCDC Local Action Group which is supported by Donegal County Council.Cllr McDermott is urging local community groups and businesses to continue to come forward with applications to the LEADER programme saying “this funding presents a great opportunity for groups and businesses across Donegal to deliver innovative and meaningful projects in their local areas and I would encourage any group or business with an idea to engage with the implementing partners to see how the ambitions for their area or business can be supported.” Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA center_img Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme Pinterest DL Debate – 24/05/21 Facebook Previous articleMan charged in fatal Bundoran charge to be returned for trialNext articleDonegal & Tyrone Ladies name 15 for Mullingar battle News Highland By News Highland – July 19, 2019 Google+ Twitter Google+ Pinterestlast_img read more
