first_img Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group January 12, 2013 at 12:13 pm Yes, quaint indeed. However it has significance for those of us who are part of the Anglican Communion but not part of the Church of England. The Archbishop of Canterbury is ex officio Primate of the entire Communion as well as Primate of England; he is not elected democratically by the clergy and laypeople of his diocese and the church that he leads in his own country is a state church. In the Episcopal Church every lay or clerical official is democratically elected by the elected representatives of the clergy and laypeople of the church and the Constitution prohibits the establishment of a state church.One can–and perhaps should–appreciate the underlying meaning of the ceremonies associated with our heritage through the Church of England of being a continuing Catholic church the foundation of which is not in the 17th century but goes goes back through Canterbury and Rome to the original church of the apostles.Our inheritance of a reformed Catholic faith should not prevent our embracing those progressive changes that allow us to proclaim the Good News of God in Jesus Christ to an ever-changing world. May God bless the ministry of our new ‘first among equals’ Archbishop Welby.

Elect seems to suggest, at least in the USA, there was some open process by which he was elected to his new office. [Lambeth Palace] A medieval ceremony has begun the process of the Rt. Rev. Justin Welby becoming the archbishop of Canterbury.The College of Canons of Canterbury Cathedral has unanimously elected Bishop Justin Welby as the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury.The 35-strong College of Canons, made up of senior clergy and lay people from the Diocese of Canterbury, met at Canterbury Cathedral’s 14th-century Chapter House to take part in the formality, which dates back more than 1000 years.The process of electing the next Archbishop of Canterbury by the cathedral community is enshrined within its constitution and can only take place once a Congé d’Élire and Letter Missive from the Crown has been received.The ceremony was chaired by the Dean of Canterbury, Robert Willis. As is traditional, the candidate was not invited to attend the ceremony, and only one name featured on the ballot sheet for the College of Canons to select.The Dean of Canterbury Cathedral Reverend Dr Robert Willis said: “The decision we made this morning is taken formally to London.“In St Paul’s Cathedral on February 4, I shall present this to the Queen’s commission.“They will say that is valid, legal and right and at that moment Justin Welby becomes in all powers the Archbishop of Canterbury.” Rector Albany, NY Archbishop of Canterbury Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Tags Director of Music Morristown, NJ Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Washington, DC last_img read more

It’s clear that passing the plate through the pews is as outdated as the proverbial buggy whip.  Our parishioners have quit using currency as their primary means of doing commerce, and the proverbial checkbook has all but disappeared.”In August, St. David’s took online giving a step further and unveiled an electronic Giving Kiosk. Placed in the church’s lobby, the Giving Kiosk allows a parishioner or visitor to make an offering despite not having cash or a checkbook. The first time someone uses the kiosk, they are asked to enter their phone number, name and address. (They have the option of skipping this step if they wish to donate anonymously but, if not, their donation can be linked with their giving record.) With the swipe of their bank card, users are prompted to select the giving category and the amount. Receipts are sent via e-mail.The Rev. David Boyd, rector, admits there was initial concern over how modern technology would fare, or clash, with daily prayer and worship, especially in such a historic church as St. David’s.“Some people felt like it was money-changers in the temple, but that’s not what we’re doing here,” Boyd explained. “Just like giving and doing transactions online, we think this will become the norm. It’s a convenient way for people to be faithful in their giving.”St. David’s purchased the kiosk from SecureGive, a company founded in 2003 by a Georgia pastor. The kiosk can also be programmed to accept a pledge or pledge payment, and allows the user to make a donation to a specific project or purchase tickets to a church event. The Giving Kiosk can also be programmed to make direct deposits and generate financial reports.“It is awesome from an accounting perspective,” said Nancy Parish, St. David’s accountant. “It’s easy to get the reports and to change and add giving options. It didn’t get a lot of use the first few Sundays, but I remember when we started taking credit cards 10 years ago– it takes a while for people to catch on.”With heavy advertising, parishioners now know the kiosk is an option and are learning all the different capacities in which they can use it. In the past few months, usage of it has doubled on a weekly basis with positive feedback from those signing in and donating. St. David’s anticipates the Giving Kiosk will become an integral part of giving and giving campaigns in the future, leaving one small problem to be solved: Is there a church out there that would like to buy some well-used, brass collection plates?— Jeanie Sablatura is communication director at St. David’s, Austin.

first_imgWednesday Dec 9, 2009 Matt Banahan red carded for stamping The fate of Matt Banahan will tonight be decided by a three-man RFU disciplinary panel after the Bath wing was sent off for stamping against Northampton Saints in the Guinness Premiership on the weekend.Banahan was shown a straight red card following his stamping on Stephen Myler, and action that could mean he faces a suspension of at least two weeks. Bath will apparently contest the red card and possible ban, as the England wing stands to miss back-to-back Heineken Cup games against Edinburgh.“It didn’t look like a red card,” said head coach Steve Meehan.Myler, the player who was on the receiving end of the 6ft7 wings boot, played down the incident, which will possibly work in Banahans favour when it comes to a ruling.“Myler said that he made contact with his forearm, not his head, but the assistant referee said he made contact with his head. The referee wasn’t influenced by anyone except the assistant referee who told him it was a red card,” he said.While there is a difference between stamping and rucking, many have called for the latter to be brought back into the game, including former players who can see the value in getting a player to release the ball, or get on his side, by administering a bit of shoe-pie.If this were 15 years ago, the incident would go unnoticed, but the rules these days are clear, so Banahan will most likely be facing a couple of weeks on the sideline. Update 10/12/2009: Following the disciplinary hearing late last night, it was confirmed that he has been handed a two week suspension.

first_imgNews News Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says May 3, 2021 Find out more RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan Reporters Without Borders today made available a photograph of slain Afghan driver and fixer Sayed Agha and called on the media to publish it as a tribute to his contribution to press freedom. The photo was obtained thanks to British journalist Thomas Coghlan, who worked with Agha.Taliban under the command of Mullah Dadullah falsely accused Agha of spying and cut his throat after taking him prisoner along with Italian journalist Daniele Mastrogiacomo, for whom he was working. The Taliban returned the body to his family on 24 March. Another Afghan journalist employed by Mastrogiacomo, Adjmal Nasqhbandi, is still being held by the Taliban.”The drivers, interpreters and fixers working for foreign journalists in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan have for years been paying dearly for the cause of press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is important to pay them homage, and one way of doing this is to put a face to those who have died while doing their job in dangerous conditions.”The organisation added: “We appeal to the Afghan and international media to pay tribute to Agha by publishing his photograph.” June 2, 2021 Find out more AfghanistanAsia – Pacific News RSF_en Newscenter_img March 11, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Organisation Receive email alerts to go further Follow the news on Afghanistan Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” AfghanistanAsia – Pacific March 28, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Media urged to publish photo in homage to slain Afghan fixerlast_img read more

The press freedom violations have taken a heavy toll, with a cameraman killed, more than 30 journalists beaten by security forces, local TV stations censored and newspapers unable to publish normally because of a curfew.“The government in New Delhi cannot continue to ignore the fact that the press in Kashmir has been subject to a state of exception that violates the Indian constitution,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call on it to react quickly to ensure that the violence stops, that the censorship is completely lifted and that the local media are given full guarantees. The police violence in which a cameraman was killed and at least 32 journalists were injured must also be investigated.”Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to carry out a thorough investigation into the death of local TV cameraman Javed Ahmed Mir, 35, who was shot while covering a demonstration near Bagh-e-Mehtab on 13 August. According to the BBC, as well as being a cameraman, he also textile worker to help support his wife and three children.The curfew imposed on 24 August was lifted yesterday after a political agreement was reached about the Amarnath land transfer dispute, which triggered the violent demonstrations. A return to normal should allow the local media to resume operations. But the toll was very heavy. The inhabitants of Kashmir, especially those in the Srinagar region, were deprived of local and national dailies for a week, while local TV stations were forbidden to report news. Some cable TV operators stopped carrying national and international news channels in protest against the censorship. Many people also complained about disruption of their mobile phone texting services.At least 32 journalists have been beaten by members of the security forces since the start of the demonstrations and at least 10 of them were hospitalised. Three journalists – Aaj Tak TV bureau chief Ashraf Wani, NDTV cameraman Amir Bhat and Daily News Analysis correspondent Ishfaq-ul-Hassan – were attacked by demonstrators.According to a press release published by a group of Kashmiri journalists, there are strong grounds for suspecting that the local and national authorities made no attempt to prevent the violence against the press.“When the governor, N. N. Vohra, was informed about these attacks, he pleaded ignorance and, in presence of some members of press and the secretary of information, instructed the Director General of Police not to let such attacks continue,” the release said. “However, to present just one instance, the attacks continued the next day, confirming our suspicion that the attacks are carried out by design.”Members of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), which is under the control of the government in New Delhi, were responsible for most of the police violence. It was CRPF members, for example, who beat Asif Qureshi of Star News on 25 August, and Showkat Ahmed, the Rising Kashmir daily newspaper’s system administrator, when he was on the streets with a pass on 31 August.

Even the charges have not been framed. I am 58 years old and I am seeking your indulgence for interim bail on medical grounds…”, submitted Senior Advocate Vrinda Grover for the petitioner.The bench of Justices U. U. Lalit and Ajay Rastogi made mention of Bhardwaj’s last medical report dated August 21, which had been prepared at the instance of the Bombay High Court.”There is no denial anywhere that I have co-morbidities – hypertension and diabetes…these are co-morbidities for COVID…”, began Ms. Grover.Cutting her across, Justice Lalit noted the blood sugar level in the report- “Yes, but there is a problem only in the case of the severely diabetic. 114 mg is a controlled sugar level, it is actually good for a diabetic person…””Yes, I agree. That is not disputed…I am being treated and given medicines…but there are two diseases that I have developed while in custody- osteoarthritis, which is spreading to the hip region, and Ischemic disease, which is a ticking time bomb in these circumstances…the condition can deteriorate anytime…I need bail to get a cardio profile, a lipid profile, a kidney check-up…Please let me get these check-ups and I will submit to custody. I was granted bail one time when my father had passed away…I have never abused the process of the law…”, urged Ms. Grover.”How many accused are there? And what is your role (in the Bhima Koregaon incident)”, asked Justice Lalit.”It relates to the Bhima Koregaon incident, where the investigation is still ongoing…a criminal conspiracy was alleged to have been hatched… something was said to have been recovered from others’ devices. but nothing has been recovered from me or from my devices…I am a practising lawyer. I was also a teacher for two years at National Law University, Delhi. I am recognised nationally and globally for my work for the marginalised and deprived communities…it is nobody’s case that any incriminating material has been found against me…”, replied Ms. Grover.”Have you filed any applications for bail on merits?”, inquired Justice Lalit.”There were some in the Bombay HC. One was dismissed, but we have not come in SLP before Your Lordships…”, replied Ms. Grover.”If you are approaching us only on medical grounds, we are not with you…you are saying diabetes…”, observed Justice Lalit.”I am not on diabetes, but I am talking of Ischemic heart disease that I have developed while in custody…”, pressed Ms. Grover. Justice Lalit observed that such diagnosis was not part of the medical report on record. “Where does it say (that she is detected with the heart disease)…which hospitals’ report is it?”, asked the judge.Responding that the report is of the Byculla Central Women’s Prison, Maharashtra where Bhardwaj is lodged, Ms. Grover indicated an earlier report of July 20, revealing that the petitioner is a “known diabetic”, also suffering from “moderate depression”, which was the diagnosis on examination by a psychiatrist, and that she is undergoing medication for osteoarthritis.”There is another report of August 3, saying that she has a history of TuberCulosis, that she was detected with diabetes in 2018. It also names the tablets for Ischemic heart disease”, urged Ms. Grover.”That is why the High Court has directed a re-examination. And the later report was found to be in order”, said Justice Lalit.Referring to the latest report of August 21, Ms. Grover submitted, “It says that she is a known case of diabetes, and that she is taking (name of the medicine) which is for heart disease…my condition has deteriorated in the past two years…I can get checked at a hospital – lipid profile, cardio profile are not possible in jail!”At this point, Justice Rastogi cited from the records that Bhardwaj had complained of body-ache, that she is suffering from diabetes and moderate depression, that she is being treated by the visiting psychiatrist. He further pointed out that the names of the medicines being administered to her are also mentioned, that the medicines are available in jail and are being given to her on government cost. “She has no symptoms of cold, cough, fever, breathlessness’,indicated the judge.”Your statement before the High Court was that the report is false”, demanded Justice Rastogi. “No, Your Lordships’…it was argued that it needs to be cross-examined…”, replied Ms. Grover.”The statement before the High Court was that the report is false? Please say ‘yes’ or ‘no’…You have the right to keep silent. But I am requesting…Who made the statement that the report is false?”, pressed Justice Rastogi. ” Please let me explain…I was not the counsel in the High Court…We are not doctors, we are lawyers. We had to check the medicine with the disease. We don’t have an understanding of the medicine but the disease…the name of the doctor who wrote the report was changed…”, replied the Senior Advocate.”You have a good case on merits. Why have you not moved for regular bail?”, asked the bench. “Now that Your Lordships’ have suggested this, we will do so…”, said Ms. Grover.”You may choose to withdraw the plea, or we will dismiss it. Medical condition is not stable, it keeps changing…On this account, you can move the court again…”, said Justice Lalit.Finally, Ms. Grover agreed to withdraw the petitionNext Storylast_img read more

Jennifer Pontius. “There is a lot of planning and preparation that goes into getting a ship ready to forward deploy and to transition a crew and their families overseas; I could not be prouder of this crew and their hard work.”On hand to welcome Milius to their new home Tuesday, were senior members of the naval forces leadership in Yokosuka, including Fleet Activities Yokosuka’s Commanding Officer, Capt. Jeffrey Kim.“Fleet Activities Yokosuka is very happy to welcome the entire Milius team, including their families, to their new home,” said Kim, who oversees the U.S. Navy’s largest overseas installation.“As a community, we look forward to supporting USS Milius as one of 13 Forward Deployed Naval Force ships stationed here in Yokosuka.”USS Milius was originally scheduled to sail to Japan in 2017 reinforcing the navy’s BMD fleet following the USS Fitzgerald collision in June 2017, but was rescheduled so the ship could complete its maintenance and modernization. The destroyer was fitted with the Aegis Baseline 9 combat system during its modernization.Millius is expected to be joined in Japan by the amphibious assault ship USS America (LHA 6) which is scheduled to forward-deploy to Sasebo later this year.Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers perform key roles in support of carrier strike groups, expeditionary strike groups or surface action groups. Destroyers are capable of sustained combat operations supporting forward presence, maritime security, sea control and deterrence.last_img read more

first_img Holcomb’s Supreme Court Pick Will Be A Trial JudgeOlivia Covington for www.theindianalawyer.comWith the Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission’s stamp of approval next to their names, three trial court judges are waiting to learn who among them will be selected as the state’s next Supreme Court justice.At the conclusion of two rounds of interviews that wrapped up Wednesday morning, the JNC, led by Indiana Chief Justice Loretta Rush, voted Wednesday evening to recommend Clark Circuit Judge Vicki Carmichael, Wabash Superior Judge Christopher Goff and Boone Superior Judge Matthew Kincaid as finalists to fill the Supreme Court vacancy that will come open after Justice Robert Rucker retires next month. Gov. Eric Holcomb is now tasked with selecting one of the three finalists to take Rucker’s seat.Kincaid returns to the finalist pool this year after being recommended for the Supreme Court vacancy left when former Chief Justice Brent Dickson retired last year. St. Joseph Superior Judge Steven Hostetler and then-Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP partner Geoffrey Slaughter were also finalists for Dickson’s spot, with former Gov. Mike Pence ultimately selecting Slaughter.If selected as the state’s next justice, Kincaid would bring roughly 14 years’ experience as a judge to the state’s highest bench.  Prior to becoming a judge, Kincaid worked as an associate with Riley Bennett & Egloff LLP, where he primarily practiced civil litigation and workers’ compensation law, according to his application.Asked to describe himself during his Wednesday interview with the JNC, Kincaid said he is a father, a thinker and a confident person. Additionally, Kincaid said he is also frequently the judge of himself as he reflects on his life and work.Just days shy of his 45th birthday later this month, Goff, if chosen to replace Rucker, would be a decade younger than his colleagues on the bench; Slaughter is the next-youngest justice at 54 years old.Goff has served on the Wabash Superior Court since July 2005.Prior to ascending to the bench, Goff wrote in his application that his general law practice “was typical of a county seat practitioner.” His work focused largely on domestic relations and criminal cases, as well as collections, wills and estates, personal injury law and work with small businesses.Asked during his interview about some of the greatest obstacles to justice facing Indiana litigants, Goff said equal access to justice. Without that access, Goff said citizens’ trust in the legal system will begin to erode.Like her fellow finalists, Carmichael has been on the trial court bench for more than 10 years, first taking a spot on the Jeffersonville City Court in 2000 then moving to the Clark Circuit Court in 2007. Prior to that, she was a self-employed practicing attorney in Jeffersonville and previously clerked for the Kentucky Supreme Court in the 1980s.Carmichael was elected to the bench as a Democrat, a fact that differentiates her from Republican Gov. Holcomb. Yet she repeatedly told the JNC that when she is in her role as a judge, politics have no place in her decision-making process. Instead, the judge said she looks solely at the facts of the case, and further said she believes her track record indicates that she is worthy of being a justice, regardless of political party.The JNC’s next step is to send a formal report on the three finalists to Holcomb, who will then have 60 days to make a selection. Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathryn Dolan said the letter would be sent to Holcomb in the “very near future.” A representative from Holcomb’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the finalists or when he might make his decision after receiving the letter.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

first_imgWhen the electric light was invented, education reformers thought the school day would be transformed. After all, that new technology offered the possibility to educate students at any time of the day or night.Not much has changed on that score since Thomas Edison’s creation, however — nor since the invention of the automobile, the telephone, television, or any other transformative technology of the past 100 years. For all the hopes of technophiles, most children’s school days still follow the agrarian calendar and run from 9 to 3.It’s easy to get excited about the possibilities afforded by 21st century technology, from mobile phones to cloud computing to social media. But when it comes to truly transforming broken education systems at home and abroad, said IBM Foundation President Stanley S. Litow, one thing is clear: “We need a little humility.”“You open one great restaurant, and everybody will want to copy you,” said Stanley S. Litow (right), former deputy chancellor of the New York City schools. “You have one terrific school, and everybody will give you 10 or 20 reasons why it won’t work for them.” Seated to the left is David Barth of the U.S. Agency for International Development.“Technology is a critical tool,” Litow said Thursday (March 31) at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE). “It’s people who make the change.”With that in mind, Harvard’s Advanced Leadership Initiative (ALI) brought together dozens of education leaders and entrepreneurs, including Litow, for a three-day think tank, “Educational Innovation and Technology: Leveraging Technology to Enhance the Relevancy and Quality of Education,” held March 31 through April 2.Technology’s ability to transform education “is still very much a promise,” said the event’s organizer, Fernando Reimers, Ford Foundation Professor of International Education and co-chair of the Advanced Leadership Initiative. To explore that promise, more than 40 speakers convened to talk about everything from online learning to training teachers in technological tools to the role of gaming and “edutainment” in the classroom.In many places, technology, particularly widespread Internet access, has “opened up the world,” Reimers said, by helping people to access information about how their school compares with others by allowing students, parents, and activists to organize to demand improvements in their school districts.But in some ways, “technology and innovation [in education] have had a very long infancy,” Reimers said. Most school systems lack the revenue to experiment with innovative technological tools in their schools, and few high-profile leaders have stepped up to show the way to the schools of the future.Fernando Reimers, Ford Foundation Professor of International Education and co-chair of the Advanced Leadership Initiative, organized the three-day think tank, “Educational Innovation and Technology: Leveraging Technology to Enhance the Relevancy and Quality of Education.”The think tank will help build a community of leaders and ideas by allowing business leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, and activists to collaborate, said Rosabeth Moss Kanter, HBS’s Ernest L. Arbuckle Professor of Business Administration and the chair and director of the initiative.“Just as ‘health’ isn’t just the hospital, or the ‘city’ isn’t just city hall, ‘education’ isn’t just the school,” Kanter said.America can’t simply bulldoze every public school and start from scratch, Kanter said. Modern technology, with its ability to connect students, teachers, and ideas across continents in an instant, “gives us a chance to do some reinvention without having to tear down the whole system.”The conference is using technology to take its ideas global. In the run-up to the think tank, Harvard Business Review hosted a three-week series on the topic of innovations in education, which drew 27,000 readers. The public can also watch the conference live on the ALI website and participate in a real-time discussion on the ALI’s Facebook page.Building a collaborative atmosphere around issues in education is the first step, many participants agreed, in overcoming the bias against experimentation that can pervade schools. Often the most innovative and creative schools, such as the highly individualized, technology-laden School of One in New York, become “islands of excellence,” Litow said, rather than successes that can be replicated and taken to a larger scale.“You open one great restaurant, and everybody will want to copy you,” said Litow, former deputy chancellor of the New York City schools. “You have one terrific school, and everybody will give you 10 or 20 reasons why it won’t work for them.”When it comes to mobilizing support for change, he said, “technology might be the answer.”U.S. Deputy Secretary of Education Tony Miller offer the introductory remarks at the three-day Advanced Leadership Initiative think tank at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.last_img read more
