VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 [2 de noviembre de 2018] El departamento de Formación de la Fe, junto con la oficina del Ministerio Latino de la Iglesia Episcopal y la oficina de Alianzas Globales, y la participación de las siete diócesis de la Provincia IX, se complacen en anunciar el Evento de Jóvenes Episcopales (EJE19) que tendrá lugar del 17 al 20 de julio de 2019 en la Ciudad del Saber en ciudad de Panamá, en Panamá.El evento, auspiciado por la Diócesis de Panamá, recibirá a jóvenes entre 16 y 26 años que viven y rinden culto en la Provincia IX, quienes compartirán varios días de culto, música y talleres y para ayudar a estrechar lazos comunitarios.

E. Revdmo. Michael Curry, al Presidente de la IX Provincia S. E.  Revdmo. Víctor Scantlebury y al Comité Organizador de EJE19, por haber seleccionado a la Iglesia Episcopal de Panamá, República de Panamá, otra Rama del Movimiento de Jesús, como sede del primer Evento de Jóvenes Episcopales,” dijo Murray, el obispo de Panamá y obispo primado de IARCA. “Hoy se habla mucho de Panamá por ser uno de los países con el mayor crecimiento económico de la Región, pero también se hace referencia a que las inequidades y desigualdades sociales siguen desafiando la Misión de la Iglesia. El trabajo con jóvenes es fundamental para nuestra Iglesia pues nos da la oportunidad de influenciar, capacitar y motiva al liderazgo de la próxima generación, de forma integral, en los temas emergentes que desafían la Evangelización, el Discipulado Intencional y nuestra respuesta en materia de justicia social en favor de construir el Reino de Dios ir en medio de las realidades donde hemos sido llamados a ser Iglesia. Es un placer y un honor ser la sede para EJE19 y trabajar juntos con la pastoral juvenil”.“EJE19 será un extraordinario encuentro de la juventud para aprender y reclamar su lugar como miembros del Movimiento de Jesús” dijo el obispo primado Michael B. Curry. “Somos la Iglesia Episcopal, pero el Señor a quien seguimos quiere que seamos más que eso. Somos discípulos bautizados de Jesús de Nazareth y por lo tanto no somos solamente la Iglesia Episcopal, somos la rama episcopal del Movimiento de Jesús. Somos un pueblo comprometido a vivir un amor desinteresado y sacrificado. Estoy ansioso de reunirme con esta comunidad en Panamá el próximo mes de julio”.Inscripción y costoLas diócesis de la Provincia IX están invitadas a enviar delegaciones de hasta 15 participantes formadas por 13 jóvenes entre los 16 y 26 años y dos chaperones de 27 años o mayores.

Precision Ag Connectivity Bill Moving Forward

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Precision Ag Connectivity Bill Moving Forward Previous articleAmerican Soybean Association Joins Farmers for Free TradeNext articlePurdue Report: Better Water Management and Infrastructure Needed to Cope with Climate Change Hoosier Ag Today By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 1, 2018 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Precision Ag Connectivity Bill Moving Forward SHARE Legislation to help farmers stay connected in the field is advancing toward the finish line. The Precision Agriculture Connectivity Act is included in both the House and Senate versions of the farm bill and was passed as a standalone bill by the House of Representatives last week. The legislation would lead to better connectivity in the field for precision agriculture uses, according to American Farm Bureau Federation Congressional Relations Director RJ Karney.“The Precision Ag Connectivity Act will direct the Federal Communications Commission [and] the U.S. Department of Agriculture to establish a task force of public and private sector members for meeting the technology needs of precision agriculture.”The task force will be responsible for developing specific steps federal agencies can take to address gaps in coverage with a goal of achieving 95 percent coverage of crop and ranch lands by 2025. This will allow more farmers to use precision agriculture technology and be more efficient, economical and environmentally friendly.Karney says, “Many of the latest yield-maximizing farming techniques, they do require broadband connections, specifically for data collection and analysis, both performed at the farm level but also at remote data centers. So, this Precision Ag Connectivity Act is critical for farmers and ranchers who want to utilize precision ag technology as a tool in their toolbox.”Karney says moving the bill across the finish line is becoming more certain, saying, “Farm Bureau is extremely optimistic that the Precision Agriculture Connectivity Act will be signed into law. Rural broadband, it’s a critical pathway for global markets for agriculture and other industries. And, farmers and ranchers, they rely on broadband as another vital tool in the infrastructure to deliver food, fiber and energy across the country.”Source: American Farm Bureau Federation SHARElast_img read more

New light on death in detention of blogger Sattar Beheshti

first_img Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders, intent on ensuring the death of the blogger Sattar Beheshti does not go unpunished, awaits with great interest the final outcome of the investigation by the Iranian justice authorities. State prosecutor’s investigation On 22 November, the Tehran prosecutor’s office published a statement on “progress in the investigation and identification of those responsible for the death of Sattar Beheshti, and its responsibility regarding citizens’ rights”. It described the sequence of events, from the day of his arrest to the discovery of his body in his cell at the headquarters of the FTA, Iran’s cyber police. “Since the first day of the investigation, the prosecutor’s office has questioned officers implicated in the case and the victim’s fellow prisoners … A number of people, including police officers, those responsible for interrogating him and warders at the detention centre have been charged and placed in custody to enable further investigations to reach a clear conclusion,” the statement said. These comments mirror those made in the past two weeks by various government leaders but the statement also gives new information about the cause Beheshti’s death: “The latest opinion of the medical commission published on 20 November 2012 indicates, at the current stage of the investigation and with the available information, that determination of the definitive cause of death is not possible, but as no reason or evidence of illness leading to death was observed during the examination of the corpse and the supplementary investigations, the most likely cause of death can be the phenomenon of shock, which if verified, could be caused by a blow or blows on sensitive areas of the body or through severe psychological pressure.”Reporters Without Borders acknowledges that the latest statement by the prosecutor is a step forward. However, the organization deplores the lack of clarity and transparency. “Vital elements of the case are still missing, and too many questions remain unanswered concerning the cause of his death and the part played by the police and the Iranian justice system,” the press freedom organization said.“We are afraid that the results of this investigation will be a disappointment and will not lead to the identification of those implicated in the death of Sattar Beheshti. The final result must not reiterate these half-truths with the aim of appeasing national and international pressure. The justice system must allow his family to speak and to attend hearings and the trial must be held in public. The courts must allow the truth to come out.” Contradictory statements The prosecutor’s statement was published after a series of statements and denials by various government officials.Ahmad Shojai, a representative of the Iranian Legal Medicine Organization, said in an interview for the Mehrnews agency on 19 November that “although we have not reached a final conclusion, the results of several examinations carried out on Sattar Beheshti’s body indicate no trace of poison or any suffocation (…) In our view this individual died a natural death.”These comments were initially contradicted by the journalist Abolfazl Abedini Nasr, one of his fellow inmates in Section 350 of Tehran’s Evin prison. Nasr said Beheshti “complained of having been beaten and tortured by the police.” In reprisal, Nasr was placed in solitary confinement in Evin’s high security wing, Section 209.In a statement issued on 21 November, the Iranian Legal Medicine Organization, distanced itself from the comments of its leader, Shojai, saying “the organization has submitted its report to the justice authorities and denied all statements made in its name about the results of the inquiry”.Mehdi Davatgary, a judge appointed by Parliament’s national security commission to conduct his own inquiry, told the Mehrnews agency on 19 November: “Even if Sattar Beheshti died of natural causes, those responsible for assaulting him will be prosecuted.” The Tehran state prosecutor announced on 13 November that several people had been arrested in connection with the investigation into the blogger’s death but did not identify them. The next day, General Esmaïl Ahmadi Moghadam, the chief of police, said they had been brought before the public prosecutor for questioning.Mohammad Hossein Asfary, a member of parliament’s national security commission, nonetheless told the official news agency Irna the same day that, while seven people had been arrested by the Tehran military prosecutor’s office (in charge of prosecuting crimes by members of the army and police), some had been released on bail of 50 million toman. Beheshti’s family under pressure Reporters Without Borders is concerned by the treatment of Beheshti’s family and deplores the vile methods used to silence them and deny them their legitimate right to file a complaint and have access to legal advice. In an interview posted on the Sahamnews website on 21 November, Beheshti’s mother clearly confirmed that the family was being subjected to pressure and she requested justice for her son.“They came with an arrest warrant for my daughter,” she said. “They told us to say nothing or she would be arrested. I know that my son was not suffering from any ailment … He was in good health when they arrested him and he was dead when they brought me the body. I ask international authorities and organizations not to leave me on my own. The people responsible for my son’s death must be punished.”Nasr, the journalist who denied that Beheshti died from natural causes, has been detained since 2 March 2010 and was sentenced in April 2011 to 11 years in prison for his journalistic activities.He is one of the inmates who saw Beheshti during the 12 hours the blogger spent in Evin prison’s Section 350 on 31 October. After being questioned by a member of the investigation into Beheshti’s death, Nasr was transferred to Karon prison in Ahvaz (in Khuzestan province) on 15 November. He was transferred back to Evin on the Tehran prosecutor’s orders the next day but was placed in an isolation cell in Section 209.According to his family, he has been on hunger strike since 15 November in protest against these punitive measures. He was moved back into section 350 of Evin prison on 22 November.

Two Atlantic coast journalists under paramilitary threat

first_img ColombiaAmericas News News May 13, 2021 Find out more RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia Reporters Without Borders is deeply concerned by the climate of threats and intimidation towards the press in the Atlantic coast departments, where there is a high concentration of paramilitary groups, which have supposedly been disarmed.Robinson Ruz Ruz, of Radio Piragua and José Ponce Obispo, news editor of Radio Galeón, recently received repeated death threats for reporting on links between local politicians and paramilitaries.“The paramilitaries, whose demobilisation should have been completed this year, remain the most dangerous press freedom predators”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “The ‘Águilas Negras’ (Black Eagles) group which has just made death threats against José Ponce Obispo, did the same thing against another Radio Galeón journalist in October this year. We urge the government to promptly investigate these threats and to continue dismantling these paramilitary groups so that they are disarmed,” it added.Robinson Ruz Ruz, 45, head of the programme “Noticiero del Medio Día” on Radio Piragua, based in Sincelejo, northern Colombia, received a ‘condolence’ message at his office on 28 November. An anonymous caller phoned two days later to say he was glad he had received the message two days previously. The journalist, who has since been under police protection, made the decision to quit his job at the radio. He had reported criticism against brothers Jairo and Jaime Merlano, respectively senator for the Sucre department and mayor of Sincelejo. Merlano is under judicial investigation for alleged collusion with the “demobbed”.On 30 November 2006, one of the sons of José Ponce Obispo, news editor on Radio Galeón in Santa Marta, northern Colombia, received a text message saying that his father’s days were numbered, Three days earlier, the journalist received an anonymous tip-off that a paramilitary group had met to plan his murder. Two men on a motorbike had turned up at his home while he was out on 14 November and told his wife, “Tell that stupid son of whore that we know where he lives and he should be prepared for the consequences.” Fifteen minutes later, Ponce Obispo received a phoned threat at his office in the same terms. A source confirmed to the journalist on 1st December that the Black Eagles were behind the threats. This same group made death threats against Radio Galeón journalist Camilo Munive (See press release of 25 October 2006). Ponce Obispo, now also under police protection, had also exposed links between local politicians and paramilitaries. Around a score of journalists working in the coastal departments of Sucre, Magdalena and de Córdoba have received death threats from suspected paramilitaries over the past months. One of them was forced to flee the area. Since the start of the year, three journalists have been killed in Colombia, including one, Gustavo Rojas Gabalo, by the “demobbed” in Montería in the north-west in February. The Uribe government and his parliamentary majority are currently reeling from a major scandal over links with the paramilitaries.Reporters Without Borders has also learned that Marino Pérez Murcia, 58, former reporter on radios Todelar and Caracol, has been gunned down in Bogota, but there is nothing yet to suggest that his murder was linked to his work.

Governor Won’t Appeal Parole Decision for Pasadena Man Convicted in Diplomat’s Murder

first_img Make a comment Public Safety Governor Won’t Appeal Parole Decision for Pasadena Man Convicted in Diplomat’s Murder Published on Thursday, March 11, 2021 | 5:21 pm Top of the News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Subscribe Hampig “Harry” Sassounian, at left, was convicted in 1984 for the shooting death of Turkish Consul General Kemal Arikan, at right. (Images courtesy Change.org)Gov. Gavin Newsom will not appeal a Los Angeles Superior Court judge’s decision allowing the parole of a local man convicted in the 1982 Westwood murder of a Turkish diplomat, a governor’s office spokeswoman said Thursday.Hampig “Harry” Sassounian, an Armenian immigrant who lived in Pasadena, was convicted in 1984 for the shooting death of Turkish Consul General Kemal Arikan.The 54-year-old victim died shortly after two armed men approached his car from both sides while he was waiting for a red light at the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Comstock Avenue on Jan. 28, 1982, and fired several rounds that hit him in the head and chest.At trial, a jailhouse informant testified that Sassounian told him he killed Arikan to “get revenge on what the Turkish people did to his people,” referencing the deaths of more than a million Armenians from 1915 to 1918 in their historic homeland in eastern Turkey.Sassounian, now 58, was initially sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. But a federal appeals court subsequently overturned the jury’s special circumstances finding of murder because of national origin.In 2002, Sassounian signed a statement renouncing terrorism and the prosecution agreed not to go forward with a retrial on a special circumstance allegation. Sassounian was re-sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.He has been denied parole four times and granted parole twice, with then-Gov. Jerry Brown and Newsom each reversing parole.A spokeswoman for Newsom noted that the governor reversed the parole grant last May, but a Los Angeles Superior Court judge last month vacated the governor’s parole reversal.“The governor has carefully weighed the factors in this case and will not pursue an appeal,” the spokeswoman said.In a statement posted on Twitter, the Republic of Turkey’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, “We strongly condemn this approach that deeply hurts the conscience of the Turkish nation.”“This grave decision, that could not be reversed despite all attempts of the U.S. Administration, is in conflict with the universal principles of law and the understanding of justice,” according to the statement.The statement said Sassounian “has never shown a sign of remorse during his 38 years of conviction” and the crime “will never be forgotten as a crime that represents a sick and distorted ideology.” 16 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News Business News Community Newscenter_img Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday More Cool Stuff First Heatwave Expected Next Week Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Plea Against Overcharging For Ambulance Service, Cremations Amid Covid-19: Delhi High Court Asks Govt To Consider Representation

first_imgNews UpdatesPlea Against Overcharging For Ambulance Service, Cremations Amid Covid-19: Delhi High Court Asks Govt To Consider Representation Akshita Saxena6 May 2021 8:37 AMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court on Thursday asked the Delhi Government to consider regulating ambulance charges and the rates of cremation/ burial of those who have died due to Covid-19. A Division Bench comprising of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Jasmeet Singh passed the order on a PIL filed by NGO Distress Management Collective. The Court directed the Government to consider the PIL as a representation. The plea filed through Advocates Robin Raju, MP Srivignesh and Deepa Joseph alleged that there is a growing practice of charging unreasonable amount for cremations of Covid-19 victims. “It is distressful to note that the charges levied are manifold times for more than what was levied for cremations and burials during normal times,” the plea stated. It also drew the Court’s attention towards unjustified fare charged by ambulance service providers across Delhi for even short distances and urged that a distance-based rate chart be prescribed for ambulance service providers. “The growing incidents of extorting money from hapless people by many essential service providers in Delhi and the sudden spike in matter of days indicate that there is a need for stringent measures to control the charges and bring it back to the times pre-covid times,” the Petitioner-organization urged. It was argued that the malpractice of undue profiteering in these difficult times aggravates the financial burden of the ordinary citizen and thereby hinders his right to life, liberty and livelihood under Article 21 of the Constitution.In related news, the Telangana High Court recently took exception to the mess that the families of victims of Covid-19 are being made to undergo for cremation of their loved ones. “Even in death, human bodies are not being treated with the dignity they deserve” observed a Division Bench comprising of Chief Justice Hima Kohli and Justice B. Vijaysen Reddy on being informed that ambulances, that are otherwise available free of cost, are “ripping the public” by demanding illegal gratification for transportation of COVID-l9 infected patients from their homes to hospitals or from hospitals to homes.To curb the practise of overcharging by private ambulance service providers, Delhi Government today capped maximum prices that private ambulance services can charge.

It’s an accurate barometer of the market at the point of sale; if you offer a property for sale to an audience of competitive bidders, you will secure the best price.“When I conducted my first auction there were no guide prices and this introduction has definitely improved the understanding and trust in our industry.”The Parliamentary Review is a series of independent publications covering a range of sectors, including housing.

Student dies day after wedding

first_imgA Brasenose student has died from leukaemia the day after marrying his university sweetheart.Matt Carver, a 22 year-old History student, was diagnosed with acute leukaemia in January, just weeks after he proposed to Nicola Godfrey, 21.The couple had planned to be married in two years’ time but decided to bring the wedding forward after discovering Matt’s illness.Matt and Nicola were both students at Oxford University, where they were married in the chapel at Brasenose College.Nicola, a Maths student from New College, said she drew comfort from the commitment she and Matt made to each other before he died.“It was a true celebration of our love and was everything that we had dreamed of since we decided to get married,” she said today.“Matt was desperate to get married and it was such a relief to get through the day and become his wife but obviously we would have wanted more time together.She added, “He appeared to be in the best health he had been in for a long time.“He looked fantastic, dressed up to the nines in his top hat and tails.”However, after one night as husband and wife, Matt’s condition worsened and was taken to the city’s John Radcliffe Hospital, where he died later on Friday.Matt, originally from Newport, South Wales, had been a member of Brasenose’s rowing, cricket and football clubs prior to his illness. The College has lowered its flag to half-mast out of respect.Chaplain the Rev Graeme Richardson said, “He was an outstanding all-round student, who was involved in many aspects of the college.”Nicola, a maths student at New College, said, “Matt was the kind of person who put his heart and soul into everything they did. He was a fantastic man and I will miss him very much.”Brasenose College issued a statement today which said, “He was a bright and enthusiastic student, passionate about the study of history; and also a popular and talented all-rounder. He contributed to all aspects of community life.“Matt bore his illness with great fortitude and cheerfulness, supported by his fiancée Nicola, his two younger sisters, and his loving parents.”last_img read more
