El nuevo arzobispo tiene en su responsabilidad primera trabajar por la reconciliación dentro de la Comunión Anglicana que se ve amenazada por diferentes interpretaciones en temas bíblicos, teológicos, sociales y de  sexualidad humana. Welby que fue ejecutivo en una compañía petrolera antes de ir al seminario, está acostumbrado a lidiar con diversidad de opiniones. “Este es un ministerio en el que todos tenemos que tomar parte”, dijo en una entrevista televisiva. A este fin nombró al canónigo David Porter de la Catedral de Conventry como director de reconciliación, cargo que será parte de sus oficinas.A la ceremonia asistieron miembros de la realeza, oficiales del gobierno británico, miembros del cuerpo diplomático, líderes ecuménicos y religiosos y obispos anglicanos de varias partes del mundo. El nuevo arzobispo tendrá amplias responsabilidades como obispo de una diócesis, pastor y consejero de la nación y presidente del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano que incluye representantes de las provincias anglicanas alrededor del mundo. Desde hace años los arzobispos de Cantórbery tienen dos residencias, una en Cantórbery y la otra en Londres en el antiguo Palacio de Lambeth en las márgenes del río Támesis.Informes periodísticos recientes en Venezuela informan que el difunto presidente Hugo Chávez durante su mandato de 14 años visitó 180 de los 199 países del mundo usando modernos aviones adquiridos por el gobierno. Uno de sus favoritos era un Airbus con capacidad para 90 pasajeros. ¿Quiénes lo acompañaban? Comitivas que incluían funcionarios del estado, intérpretes, familiares, personal de seguridad, médicos y cocineros.El papa Francisco continúa dando muestras de simpatía y humildad. Sólo usa anillo y estola como símbolos de su jerarquía. Su mitra es bien sencilla. Recibe a los visitantes en una silla a nivel del piso en lugar de un alto trono y recuerda a los pobres en sus homilías. El muchacho que le traía el periódico a su casa en Buenos Aires dice que lo llamó por teléfono desde Roma diciéndole “te habla Jorge y quiero suspender la entrega del periódico por ahora”.Minerva Carcaño, obispa de la Conferencia California-Pacífico de la Iglesia Metodista Unida, ha surgido en los últimos meses como una gran defensora de la reforma migratoria. Nacida en Edinburg, Texas, tiene 59 años, es la mayor en una familia de siete hijos y es graduada de la Escuela de Teología Perkins en Dallas. Su interés por la reforma migratoria tiene relación con el hecho de que su padre cruzó la frontera ilegalmente en los años 40. Carcaño defiende a los inmigrantes en importantes reuniones de carácter nacional y en lugares como el Congreso y la Casa Blanca.Rosa María Payá, hija mayor del activista cubano Osvaldo Payá fallecido en un accidente de carretera el pasado julio 22, pidió una investigación independiente de la muerte de su padre en el Consejo de Derechos Humanos de las Naciones Unidas en Ginebra. Su familia cree que el informe oficial de la muerte de Payá es confuso y contradictorio. Fue fundador del Movimiento Cristiano Liberación que sigue luchando por cambios políticos legales para que en Cuba se respeten los derechos humanos. El gobierno cubano trató de interrumpir su presentación y alguien le gritó “mercenaria”.La situación económica de Chipre es tan crítica que la Iglesia Ortodoxa está dispuesta a hipotecar todos sus bienes para apoyar la economía del país. Así lo dijo el arzobispo Crisóstomo II tras una reunión con el presidente chipriota Nikos Anastasiadis. El arzobispo añadió que la iglesia tiene el deber de apoyar al pueblo, evitar el colapso del sistema bancario y poder mantener el país en pie “en lugar de caer en manos extrañas”. A última hora un préstamo fue aprobado a cambio de la reestructuración del sistema bancario.La prensa de Caracas informa que la familia del difunto presidente Hugo Chávez “no está muy contenta” con la petición de que en un plazo razonable debe abandonar la residencia oficial que ocupa actualmente.VERDAD.

A loving tribute to Milton Vera, Puerto Rican revolutionary

first_imgMilton Vera 2003I met Milton roughly 30 years ago when I was working at Casa Nicaragua, during a time of tumultuous revolutionary struggles throughout Latin America and the world. I would always see Milton at organizing meetings, but we didn’t get to know each other better until Comrade Rafael Ramos formally introduced us.Milton was a revolutionary and strong advocate for his beliefs. He joined Workers World Party because he wanted to make the world a better place and was optimistic that it could happen. He was convinced that socialism was the path through which the working class, and by extension the world, would improve.Milton was warm, generous and empathetic. He loved life and wanted to spread his optimism to others, and his outgoing nature made it easy for him to do so. I was here illegally at the time and was very shy, but Milton made it easy to become close. I found that he understood the struggles of undocumented people, and he would go out of his way to help me, even going so far as to assist in legalizing my status.I was not the only one he helped. Milton would try to get people jobs, give them money in their times of need, and always had his apartment door open, making sure people felt at home. He would listen to anyone who would come to him for help, be it emotional or physical. This was particularly true with party members, who he considered his second family.Milton was a family man who was always concerned about the well-being of his children. He visited them often and made sure they were both financially and emotionally cared for. He tirelessly advocated for family unity, so that all branches of his family loved and respected each other.Milton’s impact on our lives cannot fully be described in words. He will live on through the lessons he taught, the jokes he made, the love he provided and the concern he showed for his fellow human beings and his commitment for social justice and equality. Our memories of him serve as the best testament of the kind of man he was, and our actions moving forward are the best way in which we can honor him. While he will be missed, I know that more than sorrow from his death, he would want us to remember the joy that he spread in our lives. Milton Vera ¡presente!Workers World Party will be holding a special memorial for Milton Vera.

Vilsack: No Land Grab or Beef Diet Limits

first_img SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Vilsack: No Land Grab or Beef Diet Limits By NAFB News Service – Apr 27, 2021 Vilsack: No Land Grab or Beef Diet Limits Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says there’s no truth to the talk that the Biden Administration wants to take land away from people and discourage consumers from eating beef to help fight climate change.Vilsack says the president wants to protect 30 percent of the nation’s land by 2030 but doesn’t plan to use eminent domain to take possession of that land. The Hagstrom Report says Vilsack told ag journalists that the talk of a land grab is really off base.“There’s no intent to take away land from farmers,” he says. “The goal is to give farmers more opportunities.”Vilsack also talked about rumors that the Biden Administration plans to limit how much beef Americans eat. Vilsack says there is no effort in place to limit the intake of beef coming out of the White House or USDA.“In the political world, games get played, and issues get brought into play,” Vilsack says.The rumor seems to have started thanks to a University of Michigan study on beef. The study says cutting the intake of all animal-based foods by 50 percent and replacing that with equivalent quantities of plant-based food would decrease greenhouse gas emissions by 35 percent.“There’s no policy paper in the administration suggesting that people eat less meat,” he adds.

European funding required to aid Abbeyfeale residents

first_imgAbbeyfeale water supply gets the all clear Advertisement RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick Clubs in Munster Junior Cup action live up to expectations At the Abbeyfeale town park were Celine McNally, Cllr Seamus Browne, Liadh Ni Riada MEP, and James Hartnett.THE Government has been urged to make more use of European funds available for flood relief programmes, which could benefit communities like Abbeyfeale in County Limerick where erosion is posing danger to homes and public facilities.Ireland South MEP, Liadh Ní Riada, made the call during her recent visit to the West Limerick town where she saw firsthand the damage caused by the River Feale. The Ireland South MEP deemed it “deeply frustrating that both local and national government always seems to be on the back-foot when it comes to issues like flooding and erosion”.“We are all aware of these issues, aware of where they are likely to happen, aware that they are, at certain times of year, a regular occurrence and yet there seems to be no plan of action. They always appear to be reacting to events rather than putting the structures in place to prevent them,” Miss Ní Riada commented.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Both the OPW and Limerick City and County Council are well aware of the issues along the River Feale. My colleague Cllr Séamus Browne has been very vocal on the issue and yet they do not seem to have the foresight to act now rather than having to spend much more later on in response to an event.“Similarly, there are huge amounts of money available in Europe for projects such as flood relief and yet the government is either unaware of them or unwilling to apply for them and draw them down,” she claimed.Cllr Séamus Browne told the Limerick Post this week that river erosion in Abbeyfeale is a real issue for the community.“The response to date from the State agencies including the OPW has been less than helpful. No State agencies are willing to take responsibility for the issue and this is a completely unacceptable position. The River Feale is changing course and this is going to cause more erosion over time,” he warned.Director of Abbeyfeale Town Park, James Hartnett, pointed out that while erosion along river banks is a national problem caused by climate change and global warming, some areas are in more urgent need of intervention than others.“EU projects generally take a long time to establish and our fear is that we may lose much more to erosion while we are waiting,” he concluded.by Alan [email protected] Twitter Print WhatsApp Abbeyfeale company getting back to work €1.5 million boost for five County Limerick towns from Rural Regeneration and Development Fund center_img TAGSAbbeyfealeAbbeyfeale Town ParkCllr Seamus BrowneJames HartnettLiadh Ni RiadaLimerick City and County Councilriver erosionSinn Fein Homelessness is a real worry in Abbeyfeale Linkedin Email Facebook Previous articleLittle Hours play shows over the weekendNext articleMotorcyclists urged to “Bike Safe” over the summer months Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Abbeyfeale’s Munster Football success can inspire any team NewsLocal NewsEuropean funding required to aid Abbeyfeale residentsBy Alan Jacques – April 19, 2018 1897 last_img read more

Marfa Public Radio brings storytelling event to Odessa

first_img WhatsApp Twitter What: Marfa Public Radio live storytelling seriesWhen: 6 p.m. Monday happy hour event, 7:30 p.m. storytelling beginsWhere: The Rose Building, 415 N. Grant Ave. Marfa Public Radio brings storytelling event to Odessa Pinterest Twitter Marfa Public Radio logo All across the Permian Basin, from under pumpjacks and between the mesquite, West Texas has its stories to tell.Marfa Public Radio wants them to be heard.The station is set to host a live storytelling event and happy hour April 2 at The Rose Building downtown, continuing an ongoing event series with its first stop in Odessa.The theme for the Odessa event is ‘All or Nothing,’ with participants encouraged to take to the microphone to share stories with the room about taking risks and going for broke.Events are recorded with stories broadcast on air, and uploaded to Marfa Public Radio’s website.“We see storytelling as one of the most democratic arts,” station producer Diana Nguyen said over the phone Monday. “The whole point of the storytelling event is to bring people closer together.“You find out things about your neighbors, or people you see every day, that you don’t necessarily know about them. We get people to tell true stories about themselves, and it’s really fun.”This event will mark the third of its kind in 2018, after events themed around love were held in Midland and Marfa in February. Last year, the station held storytelling events in Alpine and Marfa, plus a ‘Ghost Town Ghost Stories’ event on Halloween in Terlingua.“We’re trying to do them all over West Texas. The idea is to get a really diverse range of experiences, because people are different all over West Texas,” Nguyen said, adding that the series is hoping to return to Alpine and get to Fort Davis.“We want to do them in as many places as we can.”But now, Nguyen said she is excited to see the event push into Odessa.“It’s a good way for us to connect with our listeners, but a way for us to kind get people to connect with each other,” Nguyen said. “We’re really excited to have it at the Rose Building.“We have a grant from Odessa Arts, and they help sponsor these events that happen in the Permian Basin,” she added. “What it’s kind of turning out to be, every couple of months, or every few months, we’re trying to do one in either Midland or Odessa.”For Monday’s event, doors are set to open at 6 p.m. for the happy hour party featuring a live DJ, with stories beginning at 7:30 p.m. Beer will be provided by program sponsor Big Bend Brewing, Co.The event is free with donations encouraged, as the event runs in conjunction with the start of the station’s spring membership drive.“We are hoping to get some new members and meet some more people,” she said.Those interested in the series can listen in on past events HERE.

It violates Article 19(1)(a), is unconstitutional and incurably vague, and is manifestly arbitrary”, reads the petition filed through Advocate Kamini Jaiswal.Incidentally, Advocate Bhushan is facing two criminal contempt proceeding from the SC. On August 4, a bench led by Justice Arun Mishra is set to hear a 11-year-old contempt case take against him over his comments against former Chief Justices of India in an interview given to ‘Tehelka’ magazine in 2009. Last week, the SC had taken another suo moto contempt case against him over two of his tweets about SC and CJI, which is listed on August 5.The provision defines criminal contempt as the publication(whether by words, spoken or written, or by signs or by visible representations or otherwise) of any matter or the doing of any other act whatsoever, which – scandalizes or tends to scandalize, or lowers or tends to lower the authority of the court.The petitioners argue that the provision :fails the test of over-breadth.abridges the right to free speech and expression in the absence of “real and tangible” harm.creates a “chilling effect” on the free speech and expression.”…by criminalizing criticism of the court in sweeping and absolute terms, the impugned sub-section raises a prior restraint on speech on matters of public and political importance”, the plea states.It is contended that the offence of “scandalizing the court” cannot be considered to be covered under the category of “contempt of court” under Article 19(2) of the Constitution, which permits reasonable restrictions on free speech.It is further stated that the provision is “rooted in colonial assumption and objects”, which have no place in a democracy.The provision is highly subjective, inviting greatly different readings and application. Thus, the vagueness of the offence violates Article 14 which demands equal treatment and non-arbitrariness.”For instance, in P N Dua vs P. Shiv Shankar , the respondent was not held guilty of scandalising the court despite referring to Supreme Court judges at a public function as “antisocial elements i.e. FERA violators, bride burners and a whole horde of reactionaries” on account of the fact that he was Law Minister. However, in D.C. Saxena vs Chief Justice of India, the respondent was held guilty of criminal contempt for alleging that a Chief Justice was corrupt and that an F.l.R. under the l.P.C. should be registered against him”, the plea states.The provision is also challenged on the ground of “manifest arbitrariness”, on the basis of principles laid down by the SC in Shayara Bano (Triple Talaq case) and Navtej Johar (decriminalization of homosexuality).Contempt By ‘Scandalizing The Court’ : A Battle Of Perceptions On An Uneven Field The petition narrates that the petitioners had to face criminal contempt proceedings at various stages.N Ram had to face a criminal contempt proceedings in Kerala High Court over a publication of court proceedings in Kollam Liquor tragedy case, which was later closed.Shourie had to face contempt proceedings over an editorial written about the functioning of Justice Kuldeep Singh Commission. In 2014, the SC held that the publication did not amount to contempt, accepting the defence of truth raised by him (Subramanian Swamy v Arun Shourie (2014) 12 SCC 344).In 2013, the United Kingdom, had abolished the offence of scandalizing the judiciary as form of contempt of court based on UK Law Commission’s recommendation that the law was vague and not compatible with freedom of speech.Click here to download petitionRead PetitionNext Storylast_img read more

Brundidge native Felton meets President Obama

Robert Austin Barr, 28, pleaded… read more Latest Stories Brundidge native Felton meets President Obama Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Published 10:07 pm Thursday, February 19, 2009 Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration “The military has provided me with many opportunities,” she said. “I have met lifelong friends and worked with some phenomenal people.”These opportunities, these experiences are something that Bryant never expected when she sat in on a presentation by an Army representative who visited Pike County High School during her junior year.“He spoke about the opportunities in the Army and the Army ROTC scholarship,” Bryant said. “I discussed the scholarship with my family and decided that it wouldn’t hurt to apply so I did.”During her senior year, Bryant was notified that she had received an Army scholarship and decided to try the program “for one year.” Bryant attended Tuskegee University and majored in marketing. She graduated in 1994 with a bachelor of science degree.“What was supposed to be a one-year ROTC trial turned into a commission as an Army officer,” Bryant said. “Initially, I planned to do four years, but I’m still in 14 years later with a goal to make it 20 years.”Bryant heard Army opportunity knocking but leaving family and home behind wasn’t an easy door to pass through.“In May 1995, my sister, Valerie, and I left Alabama and drove over 1,300 miles to the far west city of El Paso, Texas where I was stationed on Fort Bliss military reservation,” Bryant said.“When Valerie flew back to Alabama, I didn’t know how I was going to survive being that far from home, but I quickly adapted by focusing on my new job. Fort Bliss eventually grew on me and I began to appreciate the gorgeous sunsets, the warm climate and the southwestern cuisine. I never quite got use to the 21 hour drive home though.”While stationed at Fort Bliss, Bryant became proficient as an air defense officer.“As an air defense officer, I learned the PATRIOT missile system and deployed twice to Saudi Arabia, in 1996 and 1999,” Bryant said.“I spent seven years in El Paso and left in May 2002 to become an assignments officer at Personnel Command in Virginia.”As an assignment officer, Bryant was responsible for coordinating assignments for Air Defense lieutenants and captains. In 2004, she transferred to the Pentagon where she worked for the Secretary of Defense and Deputy Secretary of Defense as an executive support officer.“Executive support officers lead a crew of personnel that handles all forms of communications to and from the Office of the Secretary of Defense,” Bryant said. “This was truly an exciting job as I had the opportunity to meet and interact with many key civilian and military leaders in the department of defense including Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Deputy Secretary Paul Wolfowitz and Deputy Secretary Gordon England and many of the senior military officers leading Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom at the time.”After Bryant was promoted to the rank of major in 2005, she was reassigned to the Joint Staff Manpower and Personnel Directorate. She is currently serving in this position as a joint personnel readiness planner.In this assignment, she is primarily responsible for providing the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff with personnel accountability information of all military personnel worldwide. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Book Nook to reopen Troy falls to No. 13 Clemsoncenter_img Next Up“As I stood out on the Mall during President Obama’s inauguration, there was truly a sense of unity and camaraderie,” Bryant said.“The crowd was composed of people from varied backgrounds, but everyone seemed to be filled with hope and a common purpose. The Obama administration has many tough tasks ahead and, although I don’t expect change overnight, I do believe we will come out of this crisis a better nation.”Bryant said, as a military service member, it is her duty to obey the orders of the Commander-in-Chief regardless of her own political affiliation. By The Penny Hoarder Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Sponsored Content Print Article Email the author Letitia Felton (Bryant) didn’t exactly apply for an Army ROTC scholarship on a lark but then she didn’t expect to be with the program more than a year either.On January 28, 2009, Major Letitia Felton Bryant spoke to President Barack Obama one-on-one on his first visit the Pentagon.For Bryant meeting President Obama was an honor and somewhat of a thrill and it also placed her at a special time in history. She had been on the National Mall for Obama’s inauguration and found it an awe-inspiring experience.
