Foto de Meghan McConnell[Diócesis de Indianápolis] La Rda. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows fue ordenada y consagrada como el onceno obispo de Indianápolis el 29 de abril, convirtiéndose en la primera afroamericana que preside una diócesis en la historia de la Iglesia Episcopal y la primera mujer que sucede a otra como obispa diocesana.El obispo primado Michael Curry presidió la ceremonia como principal consagrante junto con más de 40 obispos de todo el ámbito de la Iglesia. Cerca de 1.400 personas participaron en el oficio que se celebró en Clowes Hall en el campus de la Universidad de Butler. El obispo de Chicago, Jeffrey D. Lee, fue el predicador. De 2012 hasta su elección episcopal, Baskerville-Burrows prestó servicios en el personal de Lee como directora de interconexiones en la Diócesis de Chicago.“Indianápolis, has llamado a una pastora fuerte, amorosa y sabia para que sea tu obispa”, dijo Lee en un sermón que fue interrumpido varias veces con aplausos. “Ella te amará, te retará, te dirá la verdad tal cual la ve y te invitará a decirla de la misma manera. Orará contigo en la primera ocasión que sea menester y cuidará de ti de manera que no disminuya tu propio empeño. Te facultará. Te dirigirá. Cuenta con eso”.La obispa Catherine Waynick entrega el báculo a la obispa Jennifer-Baskerville Burrows. En la consagración del sábado fue la primera vez en la historia de la Iglesia Episcopal que una mujer le transfiere la autoridad episcopal a otra. Foto de Meghan McConnell.Entre los coconsagrantes en el oficio se encontraba la Rvdma. Barbara Harris, la primera obispa de la Comunión Anglicana.  Antes de su consagración, Baskerville-Burrows le dijo al Indianapolis Star, “Lo primero que me viene a la mente es lo agradecida que estoy a las mujeres que me han precedido. Barbara Harris estará en mi consagración, y cuando pienso en lo que ella ha hecho por mí y como incluso me he encontrado a niñitas que decían ‘oh, Dios mío, ¿podré un día percibir ese llamado?’ Eso sencillamente lo es todo”.Harris se jubiló en 2003 como obispa sufragánea de Massachusetts y fue sucedida por la Rvdma. Gayle Harris (sin ningún parentesco con ella), que también fue una de las consagrantes de Baskerville-Burrows.  Los otros principales consagrantes fueron la obispa Catherine Waynick (su predecesora), el obispo de Indiana Norte Douglas Sparks, el obispo de Atlanta Robert Wright y William Gafkjen, obispo del Sínodo Indiana-Kentucky de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América.El orden del oficio para la ordenación y consagración se encuentra aquí.Ella fue entronizada al día siguiente en la iglesia catedral de Cristo [Christ Church Cathedral] en Indianápolis.Baskerville-Burrows fue electa en octubre por el clero y los líderes laicos de la Diócesis Episcopal de Indianápolis para dirigir 48 congregaciones que cuentan con cerca de 10.000 episcopales en el centro y sur de Indiana. Sucede a Waynick, que dirigió la diócesis de Indianápolis durante 20 años y que fue uno de las primeras obispas de la Iglesia Episcopal.“Situada en la encrucijada de Estados Unidos, esta diócesis tiene un llamado especial a restaurar, esperanzar y amar a un mundo que con demasiada frecuencia está temeroso, herido y polarizado”, dijo Baskerville-Burrows antes de su elección. “Veo a la Diócesis de Indianápolis como una comunidad inclusiva de esperanza que lleva la luz de Jesucristo al sur y centro de Indiana y al mundo”.Antes de su trabajo en Chicago, Baskerville-Burrows fue rectora de la iglesia episcopal de la Gracia [Grace Episcopal Church] en Syracuse, Nueva York, donde también sirvió como capellana de la Universidad de Syracuse. Ella obtuvo una licenciatura de Smith College,  una maestría en planificación de la preservación histórica de la Universidad de Cornell y una maestría en teología de la Escuela de Teología Eclesiástica del Pacífico. Ella y su marido, Harrison, se conocieron en su ordenación al presbiterado en 1998 y se casaron en 2003. Tienen un hijo, Timothy, de 6 años, que asiste al kindergarten en la escuela episcopal de San Ricardo  [St. Richard’s Episcopal School] en Indianápolis.

This project began with an e-mail and a meeting in fall of 2008 for a house in Yucca Valley, which is located near Palm Springs, east of Los Angeles in the high desert near the Joshua Tree National Park. We had completed two projects in Yucca Valley and occasionally received inquiries about projects in the desert.  In the midst of the economic downturn typically these inquiring led nowhere.  We had just had our second child and things were looking rather uncertain. Save this picture!© Marc AngelesSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Marc AngelesWe decided to meet with Marc and Michele Atlan to see if their project was a reality.  Even from the first communications, Marc’s enthusiasm was noticeable. After the first meeting, we found that we shared a common aesthetic and process and after seeing the property we knew this was a project like nothing else we had done, really almost a once in a lifetime opportunity.  There was no looking back, we immediately began work on the house.Save this picture!Sketch 2Beyond the technical and regulatory challenges of building on the site- several previous owners had tried and given up there was the challenge of how to build appropriately on such a sublime and pristine site.  It is akin to building a house in a natural cathedral. Our client had given us a brief but compelling instruction at the start of the process- to build a house like a shadow.  This had a very specific relevance to the desert area where the sunlight is often so bright that the eye’s only resting place is the shadows.Save this picture!© Marc AngelesUnfortunately, the site had been graded in the 1960’s when the area was first subdivided for development.  A small flat pad had been created by flattening several rock outcroppings and filing in a saddle between the outcroppings.  To try to reverse this scar would have been cost prohibitive and ultimately impossible.  It would be a further challenge to try to address this in the design of the new house.  The house would be located on a precipice with almost 360 degree views to the horizon and a large boulder blocking views back to the road.Save this picture!© Marc AngelesA long process of research began with the clients showing us images of houses they found intriguing- mostly contemporary houses that showed a more aggressive formal and spatial language than the mid-century modern homes that have become the de-facto style of the desert southwest. We looked back at precedents for how architects have dealt with houses located in similar topography and found that generally they either sought to integrate the built work into the landscape, as in the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and later Rudolf Shindler or to hold the architecture aloof from the landscape as in the European modernist tradition of Mies van der Rohe. Save this picture!© Marc AngelesWhile on a completely virgin site, the lightly treading minimalist approach would be preferred, here we decided that the Western American tradition of Land Art would serve as a better starting point, marrying the two tendencies in a tense relationship with the house clawing the ground for purchase while maintaining its otherness. The house would replace the missing mountain that was scraped away, but not as a mountain, but a shadow or negative of the rock; what was found once the rock was removed, a hard glinting obsidian shard.Save this picture!© Marc AngelesSave this picture!East ElevationSave this picture!South ElevationSave this picture!© Marc AngelesConcept in place, we began fleshing out the spaces and movement through the house.  We wanted the experience of navigating the house to remind one of traversing the site outside. The rooms are arranged in a linear sequence from living room to bedrooms with the kitchen and dining in the middle, all wrapping around a inner courtyard which adds a crucial intermediate space in the entry sequence and a protected exterior space in the harsh climate.Save this picture!© Marc AngelesThe living room was summed up succinctly by Marc as a chic sleeping bag.  The space, recessed into the hillside with a solid earthen wall to lean your back against as you survey the horizon is a literal campsite which finds its precedent in the native cliff dwellings of the Southwest. The dark color of the house interior adds to the primordial cave-like feeling.  During the day, the interior of the house recedes and the views are more pronounced.  At night the house completely dematerializes and the muted lighting and stars outside blend to form an infinite backdrop for contemplation.Save this picture!© Marc AngelesThe project would never have come about without the continued efforts of the entire team.  The design was a collaborative effort between Marc and Michele and the architects.  The patience and dedication of the builder, Avian Rogers and her subcontractors was crucial to the success of the project.  Everyone who worked on the project knew it was something out of the ordinary and put forth incredible effort to see it completed.Save this picture!© Marc AngelesOriginally published on February 07, 2013. Project gallerySee allShow lessPrototype for UDEM Polytechnic / Bernardo HinojosaSelected ProjectsSandibe Okavango Safari Lodge / Nicholas Plewman Architects in Association with Mich…Selected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/474086/black-desert-house-oller-and-pejic-architecture Clipboard “COPY” Photographs:  Marc Angeles Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project last_img read more

They survey 163 not-for-profit organisations.Many charities surveyed are of course still experiencing difficulties: 36% reported a drop in donations during 2012/13 and 8% reported a significant decrease.Online and mobile giving income was “stable”. Gift Aid was actively promoted by 72% of the organisations.Although the majority of charities (66%) surveyed were exploring and testing new ways to generate income, 44% of respondents admitted that they had not considered the VAT implications of new income generation streams.Eileen Houghton, Head of the Not for Profit sector team at Carpenter Box  said: “Maybe, unsurprisingly, the majority of charities surveyed are looking for new and unique ways to generate income, suggesting that the drop in donations is triggering imaginative solutions to new challenges. However, charities should not ignore the importance of researching the VAT and tax rules, the legal aspects and the governance issues before implementing any strategy.”She added that, even though few respondents had undergone a HMRC Gift Aid audit in recent years, there was a chance that, with returns now being filed online, “charities may see an increase in this type of check from HMRC.”Photo: Sussex coast by Floradora1 on Flickr.com Howard Lake | 16 October 2013 | Newslast_img read more

Ayuda rusa en Siria posterga planes EUA de ‘cambiar régimen’

first_imgLos planes de EUA / OTAN de derrocar al gobierno sirio y reconocer a un régimen disfuncional de colaboradores imperialistas han sufrido un serio revés.Bajo el pretexto de luchar contra la fuerza terrorista llamada Estado Islámico, el Pentágono ha involucrado a otros 13 países para efectuar bombardeos y acciones militares en Siria. Con la coordinación de EUA, aviones bombarderos de los miembros de la OTAN Gran Bretaña, Francia, Turquía, Canadá, Bélgica y Países Bajos, han llevado a cabo acciones militares en Siria el pasado año.Además, Israel, Qatar, Emiratos Árabes Unidos, Arabia Saudita, Jordania, Bahréin y Australia, también han utilizado sus aviones para bombardear adentro de Siria.Todos estos países se encuentran frustrados ante el continuo crecimiento del Estado Islámico. Todos están decididos a derrocar al gobierno de Siria. Mientras tanto, el pueblo sirio ha quedado devastado por esta guerra impuesta desde el exterior, con 12 millones de los 23 millones de habitantes de Siria desplazados y sin hogar.Ha habido intensas discusiones sobre la imposición de una zona de exclusión aérea y también de acciones en el terreno, pero ambas se han encontrado con intensa oposición en los países imperialistas de Europa y EUA.Sin embargo, la destrucción apenas comienza. Combatientes de 80 países, incluyendo mercenarios, organizados en 1000 grupos armados de oposición y que alcanzan más de 100.000 combatientes reaccionarios y fanáticos, están ya operando en Siria.El que el dinero saudita los equipa y les paga no es un secreto. Unidades operan abiertamente desde bases en Turquía y Jordania. Caravanas de cientos de camiones abastecen a estas unidades. Sin embargo, a pesar de toda esta asistencia durante más de cuatro años, estas fuerzas mercenarias no han logrado derrocar al gobierno sirio.Las zonas de exclusión aérea en discusión tenían la intención de crear una zona de seguridad para que un ejército de oposición organizado por EUA se reforzara. Decenas de miles de refugiados sirios serían conglomerados en esta “Zona Protegida”.En el 2011, la máquina guerrista del Pentágono y sus conspiradores de la OTAN declararon una zona de exclusión aérea en Libia con el fin de autorizar siete meses de bombardeo incesante contra ese país, lo que llevó al brutal derrocamiento del gobierno libio. Han sido incapaces de repetir esto en Siria.Ayuda de Rusia e Irán, cambio de juegoEn medio de toda esta intervención externa, la intervención de Rusia e Irán y los ataques aéreos de Rusia contra el Estado Islámico, repentinamente han levantado protesta y gritos entre los imperialistas. Esto se debe a que Rusia e Irán, junto con las fuerzas del Hizbolá del Líbano, tienen como objetivo defender la soberanía de Siria, no de derrocar al gobierno de Bashar al-Assad. La entrada de Rusia a la guerra ha cerrado los planes occidentales de  crear una zona de exclusión aérea en Siria.Un artículo publicado el 8 de octubre en el New York Times, expone el pensamiento de Washington y la UE detrás de la publicidad masiva dada a la crisis de las/os refugiados y su enorme frustración ahora con la ayuda de Rusia a Siria. “En primer lugar, [el presidente ruso Putin] ha cerrado las opciones occidentales que podrían haber amenazado al actual régimen en Damasco, la capital siria.El gran flujo de refugiadas/os este verano procedentes del conflicto sirio, había comenzado a centrar las mentes europeas sobre cómo resolver el problema de fondo. Bretaña, Francia, Jordania, Turquía y Washington habían empezado a hablar en serio sobre la creación de las llamadas zonas de exclusión aérea sobre Siria. “Esas zonas fueron pensadas para crear zonas de seguridad dentro de Siria para las fuerzas de la oposición y para miles de personas desplazadas, reduciendo el flujo de refugiados. La táctica fue pensada para evitar que la fuerza aérea siria atacara a los rebeldes y sus partidarios opositores al presidente Bashar al-Assad, quien iba perdiendo terreno mientras sus funcionarios admitían la escasez de personal.“La presencia de sofisticados aviones de combate rusos y personal ruso en el terreno, hace que sea casi imposible para los EUA y sus aliados arriesgar tal zona de exclusión aérea”.¿Qué puede estar más claro?Este artículo expone el pensamiento cínico de Washington y los planes militares de la OTAN. Esto también pone en perspectiva el aluvión de medios corporativos que repentinamente se compadecían de la ola de desesperadas/os refugiados. El flujo de refugiadas/os pretendía romper la resistencia en Europa y promover la participación de la OTAN.El drástico recorte de la magra asistencia alimentaria de la ONU a las/os refugiados de guerra en los campamentos en Jordania, Turquía, Irak y Siria también impulsó a la desesperada gente a la peligrosa huida hacia Europa. La agencia de la ONU necesitaba solo $236 millones para mantener el programa financiado hasta noviembre, pero no los consiguió. Según NationalPriorities.org, el gobierno estadounidense ha gastado esa cantidad en las guerras en Irak, Afganistán y Siria cada 28 horas desde el año 2001.¿Tenía este recorte prevenible en los alimentos a las/os refugiados también la intención de provocar la migración con el fin de “centrar las mentes europeas… a hablar en serio sobre la creación de las llamadas zonas de exclusión aérea sobre Siria”?A pesar de las palabras de los diplomáticos estadounidenses que instan cooperación con las fuerzas rusas e iraníes, es poco probable cualquier tipo de cooperación, porque los objetivos de las dos partes son diametralmente opuestos. Las fuerzas estadounidenses y occidentales todavía están decididas a conseguir “cambiar el régimen” en Siria; Rusia e Irán saben que su propia soberanía y la estabilidad de toda la región están conectadas a la capacidad de Siria para defenderse de la subyugación de estilo colonial.La respuesta de Estados Unidos ha sido aumentar el envío de equipo militar a las diversas fuerzas reaccionarias y escalar la creciente confrontación.La única manera de resolver este conflicto es que ¡EUA, la OTAN – incluyendo Turquía – y las monarquías del Golfo, salgan de Siria y permanezcan fuera!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

This incident made him slip to depression and he committed suicide last year, they said. Through a lawyer’s notice address to Government of India, the mother and sisters of Prijin claimed that Prijin A was engaged as a crew onboard the fishing vessel St. Antony by its owner so as to help other fishermen and also for cooking. “He had witnessed firing by MT Enrica Lexie on 15-02-2012, Prijin was terrified and he had some minor injuries in the mayhem caused by firing. He was sent to the Kerala coast urgently in another fellow Indian fishing boat which came alongside on knowing the firing incident.”, they said.They further state that the name of Prijin was intentionally kept away from the criminal proceedings by boat owner Fredy fearing actions under Juvenile Justice Act and also by the enforcement authorities so as to protect the interests of Italian government and Italian marines. “The lack of fair and effective investigation in the Enrica Lexie incident also affected the rights of minor child Sri Prijin A. as guaranteed by Indian constitution and International child rights instruments to which Republic of India and Republic of Italy have respectively ratified.”, the family said. This representation is submitted before Republic of India in order to obtain compensation for my clients for the violation done against Sri. Prijin A, the notice reads. The Permanent Court of Arbitration had held that India is entitled to payment of compensation in connection with “loss of life, physical harm, material damage to property (including to the “St. Antony”) and moral harm suffered by the captain and other crew members of the “St. Antony””. The Tribunal has invited both the countries to consult with each other with a view to reaching agreement on the amount of compensation due to India.  After the award was released by the Tribunal, Union of India has already moved an application seeking disposal of the matters pending in the Supreme Court regarding the criminal proceedings against Italian marines. The Union stated that it has “decided to accept and abide” by the order passed by the Tribunal which held that India is entitled to claim compensation from Italy and that India is precluded from exercising its jurisdiction over the marines. Next Storylast_img read more
