The Task Group was set up by the Synod to facilitate the outworking of the priority of “Intentional Evangelism.”Members of the Archbishops’ Evangelism Task Group have put together printed and online prayer resources, which are available at www.usewords.org. There is also a short video, which explores the question: “What is evangelism?”The archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, said: “The task before us cannot be overestimated. We could easily be disheartened. We cannot do it alone. But. . . Allelulia! For we are not thrown back on ourselves, but in, by and through the power of the Holy Spirit, God brings forth life. It is right that as the Evangelism Task Group considers how it may resource the Church to bear faithful witness to Jesus Christ, the commitment to pray is the essential first step. Prayer has to be our first priority, if we are to call more people to follow Christ, and to invite others to share in the story of God’s love for the world. The wonderful news is God is always ready to hear our prayers and to send his Spirit that we may proclaim the good news afresh. I urge every church community and individual to set aside time to pray and to share God’s heart for all his people.”The archbishop of York, John Sentamu, said: “Recently all the Bishops of the North of England met with a group of young adults from across the Province of York to pray and take counsel together ‘towards the re-evangelisation of the north of England’. It was wonderful to tread in the footsteps of St Aidan and St Cuthbert, who in their time told the people of the north the good news of Jesus Christ, rooting their proclamation in the practice of fervent prayer and praise. Praying for others to come to know Christ is a privilege and a joy – and loving our neighbours and making disciples of Jesus is exactly what we are called to do. At Pentecost we recall the wind and flame of the Holy Spirit coming upon the disciples, so let’s commit ourselves afresh to pray, for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and for boldness, simplicity, wisdom, and compassion in the proclamation of the Gospel.”In calling the church to pray the archbishops are reaffirming, for all Christians in all times and in all places, the priority of prayer for new disciples of Jesus, and encouraging many ways in which this prayer takes shape.For the Task Group this is just the beginning of a process to encourage everyone in the church, young and old, to consider how best to witness to the love of God in Christ amongst families, friends, neighbours, colleagues, and to hold them before God in prayer.The call to prayer is not a one-off, but a call to a continuing openness, dependence upon, and imploring of God to work among us for the sake of others. Rather than launching a programme or a campaign, the Church is seeking to respond obediently afresh to the last words of Jesus, in both the Great Commission (Matthew 28: 16-30) and his charge to wait on the empowering presence of the Spirit (Acts 1:8).

Rev. Pinkney: ‘I am still standing’

first_imgAs the Rev. Edward Pinkney approached the start of his second year in prison, a powerful show of support was displayed in Detroit on Dec. 12 for Michigan’s political prisoner. The Emergency Conference to Save Rev. Pinkney drew over 70 participants from across Michigan and several other states. Longtime supporters of Rev. Pinkney were joined by many who had only recently heard about the jailed Benton Harbor civil rights activist. Many were meeting each other for the first time.Dorothy PinkneyWW photo: Bryan G.PfeiferDorothy Pinkney opened the conference. This is the second time in eight years that she has been separated from her spouse due to totally outrageous frame-up charges. She inspired the crowd by reading from Rev. Pinkney’s message to the conference: “They tried to destroy me, but I am still standing. They attempted to silence me by taking away my telephone rights, but I am still standing. They tried to harass me, they tried to intimidate me, they tried to threaten me, but I am still standing.”Attorney Tim Holloway, Rev. Pinkney’s appeals lawyer, exposed the wildly unconstitutional procedures used by the prosecutor, Michael Sepic, and allowed by Berrien County judge, Sterling R. Schrock, to get the all-white jury to convict Rev. Pinkney despite having, admittedly, “no evidence” linking him to the charges of altering five dates on a mayoral recall petition.Longtime supporter and organizer Marcina Cole linked Rev. Pinkney’s ordeal to the regime of racism, police misconduct and mass incarceration of African Americans across the country. A call to elevate the profile of Michigan’s political prisoner in the media nationally and internationally was made by Abayomi Azikiwe, a leader of the Moratorium NOW! Coalition and the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War and Injustice. He reported that radio shows had recently given substantial coverage to Rev. Pinkney in San Francisco, Milwaukee and Washington, D.C. The Final Call newspaper and CounterPunch online magazine have also given coverage to this case. Regular coverage of the struggle to free Rev. Pinkney is found in Workers World newspaper and the People’s Tribune.Send a greeting to Rev. PinkneyA widespread campaign was launched to show support for Rev. Pinkney and let Marquette Prison officials know that they are being watched by many. People are being urged to send a holiday greeting card to Rev. Edward Pinkney #294671, Marquette Branch Prison NE-93, 1960 U.S. Hwy. 41 South, Marquette, MI 49855. A table at the conference had dozens of holiday cards laid out so people could sign them or send a brief message on the spot.An open microphone allowed widespread discussion. A woman who explained that she was a dues-paying member of Amnesty International let people know she was pressing the London headquarters of AI to take up Rev. Pinkney’s case. Lamont Lilly from North Carolina, the Workers World Party candidate for vice president in the 2016 national elections, promised to raise Rev. Pinkney on the campaign trail as he travels the country. A young autoworker, Tom Michalak, reported on important trade union support coming for Rev. Pinkney. A taped message of support was shown from the Baltimore People’s Power Assembly.In the days following the conference, an important development emerged that may add to the efforts to keep Rev. Pinkney safe from vindictive and racist prison officials at the remote Marquette prison. Several Michigan state legislators, pressed by their constituents, have agreed to contact the Michigan Department of Corrections director to express their concern for the health and safety of Rev. Pinkney. They also have approached the legislative corrections ombudsman to ask him to look into the concerns that Rev. Pinkney has expressed about abusive treatment. It is hoped that such inquiries will, at the very least, make officials more cautious about how they treat this embattled political prisoner.Calls to the Michigan legislative ombudsman, Keith Barber, expressing concern for Rev. Edward Pinkney, #294671 at Marquette Branch Prison, can be made to 517-373-8573. PayPal donations to help finance the defense of Rev. Pinkney can be made online at bhbanco.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Police arrest leading suspect in attack on newspaper reporter

first_img Receive email alerts Organisation News May 29, 2019 Find out more RSF_en Nepal: RSF’s recommendations to amend controversial Media Council Bill News June 8, 2020 Find out more August 25, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Police arrest leading suspect in attack on newspaper reporter to go further Newscenter_img Reporters Without Borders congratulates the police in Chainpur, capital of the northwestern district of Bajhang, for today’s arrest of Vikash (Bikash) Rai, the leading suspect in the 11 August attack on Himalayan Times and Annapurna Post reporter Kishor Budhathoki.Another suspect who was arrested on 19 August, Rupak Rai, is still being held at Chainpur police headquarters.“We salute the efforts of the police and we urge the authorities to pursue this investigation in order to bring all those involved in this brutal attack to justice,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We also hope that a visit by a team from the office of the UN high commissioner for human rights will help to establish guarantees for journalists’ safety.”Vikash Rai was arrested at the home of a relative early this morning by 13 policemen led by Deputy Inspector Mahendra Raj Karki. Rai, who is known to the local police and has served several prison sentences, was taken to district police headquarters.Doctors say Budhathoki will have to spend another three weeks in Biratnagar’s Nobel Medical College in order to fully recover from the injuries he received in the attack.————————–08.18.2011 – Sharp fall in ability of Nepalese journalists to work freelyReporters Without Borders has noted an increase in threats and attacks against journalists since the start of the year in Nepal. After an apparent improvement in the situation in 2010, political instability and an increase in activity by several political parties and armed groups are threatening media freedom and the safety of journalists, especially in the districts.“Some political leaders are providing political protection to people who are threatening and attacking journalists and media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This encourages a climate of impunity that is endangering all the achievements of previous months regarding press freedom.”The authorities were unable to bring the Youth Force leader Parshuram Basnet to justice for allegedly masterminding the beating of the journalist Khilanath Dhakal in the southeastern city of Biratnagar. Basnet is a leading member of a youth group affiliated to the Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist), the party of Jhala Nath Khanal, who has just resigned as prime minister. Several members of the Morang District police, including a deputy superintendant, have been relieved from duty for helping Basnet and his accomplices to escape.“The Nepalese government must adopt measures to stop any collusion between officials and people who are wanted by the judicial authorities,” Reporters Without Borders added, “The government must also protect journalists from the activities of politically-motivated groups.”Physical attacksIn one of the most recent cases of physical violence, Kishor Budhathoki, a journalist working for the Himalayan Times and the Annapurna Post, was brutally attacked at his home in the eastern district of Sankhuwasabha on 11 August by 10 armed men led by Vikas Rai, a notorious criminal in the region, police said.Budhathoki was taken to Nobel Medical College hospital in Biratnagar with serious injuries to the head, legs and hands. Doctors described his condition as critical. The attack was prompted by a report on domestic violence carried by radio Khandbari FM, in which Budhathoki referred to Rai’s violence against women.Six teams consisting of members of the regular police and the Armed Police Force (APF) are reportedly looking for Budhathoki’s assailants, who are still at large. Sankhuwasabha Chief District Officer Kailashnath Kharel said: “All the political parties in the district have expressed willingness to help the administration to arrest the attackers.”Manoj Ghimire, a journalist with the national daily Rajdhani, was manhandled by police inspector Hari Bashyal while trying to cover a sports event on 6 August in Kathmandu. Security officials then prevented him from entering the sports stadium.Fourteen journalists were roughed up by employees of the Aaptari road toll during an informal meeting at a police station in south-central Chitwan district on 19 June, when the employees became angered by questions about their levying illegal supplementary tolls. They later apologized to the journalists.An unidentified group threw Bimal Hamal and Suman Malla, journalists based in mid-western Himalayan District of Mugu, off a cliff on 2 June. On the same day, Rajendra Awasthi, the executive editor of the local daily Angel Times, was injured in an attack by three unidentified gang members in the far-western city of Mahendranagar.ThreatsMahesh Basnet, the president of the Youth Association Nepal (YAN), threatened to close the daily Nagarik and jail its editor, Narayan Wagle, during a meeting of young activists in Biratnagar on 13 August. “The day a new constitution is drafted in our favour, we will close down Nagarik daily and send its editor Narayan Wagle to jail,” he said.He also threatened to target journalists who criticize fellow youth leader Parshuram Basnet. “We will settle scores with everyone sooner or later, if not tomorrow. We have made a list of all the names.” Referring to the journalist Khilanath Dhakal, he added: “We will show what happens when a nonentity takes us on.”Santosh Yadav, a reporter for Rajdhani national daily in southeastern Siraha District, was threatened on 8 August by the Rajan Mukti Faction, a clandestine armed group similar to Janatantrik Terai Mukti Morcha (JTMM). He said that Vaskar Mukti, a key member of the group, posted this message on Facebook: “Mr. Santosh, I’ve heard that you are working for the police administration. It was sure you had a role in the arrest of Morcha’s leader, Jay Mukti. Contact us soon, otherwise the high command of the Morcha will take physical action against you.”Denying Vaskar Mukti’s claims, Yadav said he had no role in an article about Jay Mukti’s arrest that was published several weeks ago in the local daily Anukalpa, for which he also works as a reporter.Keshav Ghimire, a journalist based in the eastern city of Dharan who edits the daily Fast Times, was threatened by local gang leader Thaman Gurung on 31 July, two days after publishing an article reporting that Gurung was responsible for a recent attack on a youth in the region.Shreeram Sigdel, a correspondent for the Himalayan Times and Annapurna Post in south-central Nawalparasi District, was the target of death threats by Dronababu Shivakoti, a local leader of the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), on 22 July in connection with an article quoting Shivakoti commenting on a case of smuggling involving a Young Communist League member.The businessman Raju Shrestha telephoned Udaya Singh Shrestha, the editor of the daily Nishpaksha Dhwani in the mid-western city of Nepalgunj, on 21 June and threatened to kill him because of an article that supposedly hurt his business interests.Janatantrik Terai Mukti Morcha (JTMM), an armed group that claims to defend the interests of the population in the Terai region, sent intimidatory letters to several local newspapers in the southeastern Janakpur region on 21 June demanding that they begin publishing in the Maithili language within 35 days.Nepal is ranked 119th out of 178 countries in the 2010 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

But not all services are created equal—there are some that you really can’t say no to. Take the example of Facebook. Both landlords and employers in the United States have begun demanding to see Facebook accounts as a condition of housing or employment.”Crapo noted that the use of personal data can “provide value, such as risk mitigation, fraud prevention, and identity verification, or to meet the requirements of laws or regulations.”“However, in many other cases, that data can be used in ways that have big implications for their financial lives, including to market or make decisions on financial products or services that impact a consumer’s access to or cost of credit and insurance products, or in ways that impact their employment prospects.”Watch the complete hearing webcast here.

The Petitioner has submitted that due to COVID19, the communications between the Attorney and the Client are no longer taking place through physical meetings, but instead they are conducted through virtual meetings using third party applications.

Jadestone Energy to acquire stake in Maari project offshore New Zealand

first_imgThe deal is expected to be completed in the second half of 2020 Image: The project comprises the Maari and Manaia oil fields. Photo: courtesy of QR9iudjz0/FreeImages. Singapore-based Jadestone Energy has entered into a deal with OMV New Zealand to acquire an operated 69% stake in the Maari Project in shallow-water offshore New Zealand.The deal is estimated to be worth $50m, subject to customary closing adjustments.Located in permit PMP 38160, offshore Taranaki basin, in 100m water depth, nearly 80km southwest of New Zealand’s North Island, the Maari project is a mid-life producing asset.The project comprises the Maari and Manaia oil fields, produced using a self-elevated jack-up wellhead platform, an FPSO, owned by the joint venture partners Horizon Oil (26%) and Cue Taranaki (5%).According to Jadestone Energy, the fields hold 2P reserves of 13.9 million barrels of oil (mm bbls) of oil, and present production is about 4,000-4,500 bbls/d, both on a net 69% basis.Production of Maari field began in 2009Production of the oil field commenced in 2009 and achieved peak production of 16,400 barrels of oil per day (bbls/d) in 2010.The company said with original oil in place of close to 300 mm bbls in the producing reservoirs and cumulative production of 38.3 mm bbls, the fields have achieved a recovery factor of 13% to date.The fields, based on their current 2P reserves, are expected to produce until 2031, however, the Jadestone believes there is substantial potential for reserves upside not yet captured in the 2P reserves.Jadestone Energy president and CEO Paul Blakeley said: “Adding the Maari Project to our growing portfolio of high-value assets in the Asia Pacific region demonstrates our ability to bolt on new assets and provides more than a decade of additional free cashflow, even in the 2P reserves only scenario, as supported by our external reserves audit.“The Maari project adds both significant additional opportunity as well as diversity to our operations.  New Zealand is a natural strategic fit for Jadestone, where we see many shared values with regards to sustainable energy investment, through maximising recovery of existing resources and world-class expectations for health, safety and environmental stewardship.”Jadestone Energy expects to complete the deal in the second half of 2020, and till then OMV New Zealand will carry on as operator of the assets.last_img read more
