Photo: Leigh Anne Williams[Anglican Church of Canada] The national office of the Anglican Church of Canada in Toronto was abuzz with excitement as staff welcomed Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and his wife, Caroline, for a brief stop in a tightly scheduled visit to Canada from April 7 to 9.Following a morning worship service and a meeting with Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, then a private luncheon in support of Canterbury Cathedral, the Welbys came to “Church House” in downtown Toronto, where there was a brief meeting with General Synod directors and management and reception with the staff.Sharing her impressions from the meeting with management, Monica Patten, interim director of the Resources for Mission department, said, “There’s a sense of humility about him and clarity about what he sees and what his vision is and the areas of priority that I think he intends to work on.” She added that she was struck by the impression that “in a relatively short time he so deeply understands the Anglican Communion — both the opportunity and the potential as well as the challenges and he doesn’t actually seem to shy away from either of those.”Henriette Thompson, director of public witness for social and ecological justice, who was also in the meeting, said, “One of the things that I am taking away from this archbishop’s visit is the wonderful degree of commitment he has to the Anglican church as a church of reconciliation and bridge-building. From his visits around the Communion, he described how the church is building bridges in so many different contexts.”National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald, who had met Welby previously in South Korea during the World Council of Churches meeting, said he appreciates Welby’s focus on reconciliation, particularly looking at the effects of colonization. “It was really gratifying to see his enthusiasm and excitement about what’s happening in the Anglican Church of Canada. I think he’s really aiming in the right direction. I think he’s going to have a big impact.”Following the meeting, the primate introduced the Welbys to staff at a small reception in the lobby of the national office, and they gamely dove into the crowd to meet as many of the staff as possible in the brief time before they were due at an ecumenical vespers service at the Cathedral Church of St. James.“I think it’s really admirable of him to spend a year traveling around the Communion meeting all the primates,” said Simon Chambers, communications coordinator for the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF).  “The travel must be exhausting and grueling, but he’s been very gracious.”Many staff commented on the archbishop’s friendly and humble manner.PWRDF public engagement coordinator Suzanne Rumsey said she and her late father, who was an Anglican priest, used to discuss brushes with fame. “He’d be very pleased about this one,” she said after meeting both the archbishop and his wife.“We’re really grateful that he chose to come,” said Evelyn Hinchcliffe, after she and her pension office colleagues Kathy Edgar and Sonia Bernard chatted with the archbishop.

Ocho de los diez profesores a tiempo completo han enviado carta a la junta de síndicos protestando por el estilo rígido del deán, su hábito de “usar lenguaje vulgar” y utilizar amenazas de dejar cesante a los que no estén de acuerdo con sus decisiones. Varias reuniones entre las partes litigantes no han producido resultados positivos. Los cinco profesores han sido avisados de que sus servicios ya no son necesarios. La situación es tal que posiblemente el asunto sea llevado a la corte. Observadores de la escena dicen que la cuestión de la sexualidad humana es parte del problema. “No queremos que este seminario sea conocido como un seminario gay”, dijo un profesor. El seminario ha graduado unos 7 mil estudiantes desde su fundación.Katharine Jefferts Schori, obispa primada de la Iglesia Episcopal, ha anunciado que no tratará de servir otro mandato de nueve años, aunque los cánones lo permiten. Ella fue electa en el verano de 2006 por la Cámara de Obispos y ratificada por la Cámara de Diputados en la misma Convención General celebrada en Columbus, Ohio. La obispa tiene 60 años de edad. Desde ya se están haciendo los preparativos para elegir a su sucesora o sucesor.Un año después de la masacre se ha sabido que una bomba explotó en la Iglesia Anglicana de Todos los Santos en Peshawar, Pakistán, matando a 127 personas e hiriendo a 170. Las víctimas fueron principalmente mujeres y niños. El obispo Samuel Azariah dijo que se cree que los autores fueron extremistas religiosos. Añadió que pese a la situación y las amenazas la iglesia sigue creciendo. Los cristianos constituyen el 1.5 por ciento de los 189 millones de habitantes de Pakistán.Una sentencia judicial que ordena en Sudán la flagelación y pena de muerte para Meriam Yehia Ibrahim Ishag ha suscitado una ola de protestas alrededor del mundo. La mujer de 27 años ha sido acusada de convertirse del islam al cristianismo y haber cometido adulterio al casarse con un hombre cristiano. Uno de los signatarios de la protesta es el Secretario General del Consejo Mundial de Iglesias, Olav Fykse Tveit.Que una aerolínea atrase la salida de un vuelo no es noticia. No así lo que le pasó a un vuelo de El Al la aerolínea israelí saliendo de Tel Aviv. Un pasajero judío rehusó sentarse porque iba a tener de compañera de viaje a una mujer y eso era contrario a su religión ultra-ortodoxa. Después de una discusión la azafata logró encontrarle un asiento al caballero que no quería contacto con las mujeres. Hay de todo en este mundo.Kieran Conry, obispo católico romano de 63 años de la diócesis de Arundel y Brighton en Irlanda ha sido destituido por el papa Francisco por su propia admisión de que tenía amores con una dama de su diócesis. “Siento mucho que he faltado a mis promesas de ordenación”, dijo el obispo. Semanas más tarde el tabloide The Mail publicó fotos del prelado vestido de civil y de brazos con una dama 20 años más joven que él. Tan malo es pasarse como no llegar.Recientemente, Ronald Gainer, obispo católico romano de Harrisburg, Pensilvania, decretó que en su diócesis “no están permitidos” juegos de fútbol entre equipos masculinos y femeninos de colegios católicos porque esto da “la posibilidad de contacto físico inmodesto”.El prefecto de la Congregación para la Doctrina de la Fe, cardenal Gerhard Müller, ha dicho que la Conferencia de Liderazgos de Mujeres Religiosas (LCWR, por su sigla en inglés), que promueven el feminismo radical y posturas contrarias a la doctrina católica en Estados Unidos, podrían extinguirse si no cambian de actitud.El dictador haitiano Jean-Claude Duvalier ha fallecido a la edad de 63 años en Puerto Príncipe de un ataque al corazón. Gobernó al país caribeño con mano dura desde 1971 hasta 1986, cuando fue derrocado por una revuelta popular. Antiguo estudiante de Medicina, heredó el poder de su padre, el dictador François Duvalier, a los 19 años, lo que le valió el sobrenombre de ‘Baby Doc’. Regresó por sorpresa a Haití en el 2011 después de 25 años de exilio en Francia. Estaba acusado de crímenes de lesa humanidad y desvío de fondos públicos entre 300 y 800 millones de dólares.MANDAMIENTO DIVINO. No robarás.

Habits of Grace: Meeting Jesus

In Luke 24, for example, some of the followers of Jesus are traveling from Jerusalem itself to the small village of Emmaus a few miles down the road. A stranger comes up to them, walks with them and carries on a conversation with them and all along, the stranger was Jesus raised from the dead. They didn’t recognize him. They didn’t see that it was Jesus until, as the Bible says, their eyes were open as if they turned and actually saw him in the breaking of the bread and saw him alive.A similar thing happened to Mary Magdalene in the 20th chapter of John’s Gospel, where she is frantically running around looking for his body, and she comes up to someone she mistakes for the gardener in the cemetery. It’s actually Jesus raised from the dead. But again, she doesn’t recognize him until he speaks, “Mary,” the way he always said it and he says though she stopped, and you know how we say did a double take, turned and saw that it was Jesus and cried out, “Rabboni!” That pattern may well be reminding us who hear those stories generations after it all happened that the risen Christ, that the Lord Jesus, that our God, is actually walking with us even when we cannot see, feel or sense his presence. Sometimes we just have to stop, be still, and turn and behold.Psalm 46 says, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. . . Though the mountains be toppled into the midst of the sea, God is our stronghold.”Be still and know that I am God.In a prayer in our prayer book, says much the same thing:Oh God of peace who has taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved in quietness and in confidence shall be our strength. By the might of thy spirit, lift us we pray thee to thy presence where we may be still and know that thou art God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.Jesus said at the end of Matthew’s Gospel, at the end of the messages about the resurrection, “I will be with you always, even to the end of the age.”God love you, God bless you and may God hold us all in those almighty hands of love.

Casco Loft is an interior design project developed by FABRICations for one of the Superlofts Houthaven, in Amsterdam. The three stories dwelling takes advantage of the flexibility of the structure to deliver an innovative experience of a housing interior, in line with the resiliency principles of FABRICations. The design relies on a range of strategies that aim to privilege interaction and flexibility, encouraging shared activities and free use. Enclosed spaces, like the bedrooms, are minimized and strategically placed to leave visual and physical proximity of common spaces.Save this picture!© Jansje KlazingaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Jansje KlazingaIn essence, the shell (in Dutch “Casco”) is treated as an open space, where suspended boxes are fitted in. The upper floors are retracted to generate voids and double heights in the proximity of the façades. Such design increases not only the amount of sunlight in the living areas of the house but also allows for more cross ventilation, hereby ensuring a high degree of passive environmental control while simultaneously generating an unconventional spatial experience.Save this picture!© Jansje KlazingaFurthermore, each space has its own characteristic visual identity, relying on a wide range of colors, textures, and materials. Different levels of transparency, reflectivity and separation are achieved by the use of metal meshes, wood, resin paint, and methacrylate panels. The choice of unconventional materials for interiors, like the metal mesh normally adopted in armored concrete, brings to the construction added value also in terms of cost-effectiveness, lightweight and space occupation.Save this picture!© Jansje KlazingaThe flexible layout was designed to allow for a variety of visual and personal interactions. The dominant colors of the staircases and their prominent positioning within the house turn the act of moving through the house into an adventurous journey. By creating multi-functional areas that can change use according to the needs of the user, the design maximizes the value of every single square meter. The entrance space, for example, can be turned into working space or additional living space, since it is located on a separated level from the rest of the house. In the meantime, a guest bedroom is hidden in the colored volume at the entrance, ready to be used during night time.Save this picture!© Jansje KlazingaProject gallerySee allShow lessGammel Dam / CCY ArchitectsSelected ProjectsBlue Bottle Coffee Kanda Manseibashi Cafe / Schemata ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

FIRE: Live from the U.S./Mexico border

first_imgFIRE delegation with Eddie Camales of South Texas Human Rights Center (second from left) in Falfurrias, Texas, June 30.The FIRE delegation (Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere) reported live from the U.S./Mexico border to a June 28 Workers World forum in New York City. WWP Secretariat members Sara Flounders and Monica Moorehead commented from NYC. This is a lightly edited transcript.Sara Flounders: This is a moment of crisis for millions of migrants around the world — adults and children — forced to flee their homes because of poverty, violence and wars imposed by the U.S. and European imperialists. That’s why we’re launching a new national organization to amplify the struggle of migrants and refugees: FIRE — Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere.FIRE’s goal is to connect all the issues that face workers here in the U.S, and build the greatest unity to create a broad movement that will take direct action against the horrific crimes of ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and the Border Patrol.A FIRE delegation of eleven activists is on the border tonight in Brownsville, Texas. Their goal is to mobilize activists, primarily young LGBTQ people of color and working-class organizers, to travel to the border, learn about the struggle there, do support actions and eye-witness tours, and then come back and help organize resistance.Speaking live from the Border are FIRE delegation members Teresa Gutierrez from New York City, Gloria Rubac from Houston, John Parker from Los Angeles, Joe Piette and Steph Davies from Philadelphia, and Nat Heathman from Boston.Gloria Rubac: Today, a few miles from the Mexican border, we participated in a demonstration, “Families Belong Together,” in Brownsville at the very tip of the state. It was a huge demonstration, at least by Texas standards, with 1,000 people who came on buses from Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, Laredo, as well as people living here in the Rio Grande Valley.The participants and the protest’s sponsors were extremely diverse: United We Dream, the South Texas Civil Rights Project, the Children’s Defense Fund, National Domestic Workers Alliance, Rio Grande Equal Voice Network, We Belong Together, Fuerza del Valle, Proyecto Azteca, La Unión del Pueblo Entero (LUPE) and the ACLU [American Civil Liberties Union] Border Rights Center.Tonight our delegation is going to a vigil for Claudia Patricia Gómez Gonzáles, the Guatemalan Indigenous Maya-Mem woman who was murdered [May 23] by the Border Patrol. The vigil is in San Juan, about 4 miles from here. Tomorrow morning we’re speaking at a community college to a class we were invited to.Then Saturday, June 30, like everywhere, there will be demonstrations here — one in McAllen and one in Brownsville.We hope to also take our delegation to the South Texas Human Rights Center in Falfurrias, where the Border Patrol has a checkpoint. When migrants cross the border, since they know where the checkpoint is, they go inland to go around. Every year probably hundreds of people die on the inland ranches because of the heat.Until Houston activists opened this human rights center, the ranchers would find the dead, their bodies, their bones, throw them in a plastic trash bag, and then the county would put them in a cemetery, taking no information on what they were wearing, tattoos, whatever — and no DNA. We found out that was illegal, so now we have forced them to document, to take DNA. We are working with pathologists and anthropologists from one of the universities to match the people with families, wherever they might be.Families look forever to find out why they have not heard from their missing loved one — the person who has crossed the border. So this identification is important, even if the person has died.John Parker: At today’s rally a freelance journalist told me that this area of the Valley experiences some of the highest homelessness and unemployment. This is where some of the first maquiladoras [U.S.-owned, low-paying factories] started across the border in Mexico. There is a long history of repression here, and people are angry and fed up. There is a lot of humidity and heat in the air today, amplified by the heat of the rage of people fed up with the situation.Shocking things are coming to light, things that happened in previous U.S. administrations. Folks are not going to be willing to have the same old solutions. There’s a lot of talk about “we need to go vote” and sometimes organizers steer things in that direction. But a lot of people, including at this demonstration, won’t accept that. People are calling for the abolition of ICE, but the Democrats are saying they are just going to “reform immigration.” People aren’t going to accept that.I think one of the reasons our banner was so popular at the protest is that FIRE is making a militant call, including for the abolition of ICE.People know the causes of migration and immigration are U.S. economic and military wars — in Central and South America, in Libya, Iraq, Syria — that these are causing the refugee crisis. And the border is tied to the attacks by police in the U.S. on Black and Brown people. In fact, one of the chants today was “No justice, no peace, no racist police!”Nat Heathman: At the rally today, yes, there were a lot of liberals there, but also there were people with more militant politics. We can be proud of how we represented FIRE.Steph Davies: It was an impressive crowd today and a very striking event. The organizational leadership was definitely trying to keep things in a more liberal, moderate direction, with the speakers talking about voting. But once the momentum of the people built and the crowd had control of the situation, how powerful their politics were! It was a striking overture for FIRE’s launch. It showed that conditions are in place for change because people want to abolish ICE, people want to prosecute the crimes that are being committed against migrants.Joe Piette: Today, first there was a rally, and then the marchers lined up in twos and converged on the courthouse where deportation hearings were happening. The crowd surged to the doors, but the lead organizers urged them back. There is militancy here.There were some workers’ organizations, including the Fuerza del Valle and the Texas teachers’ union. Evidently, last week they organized their own rally. It’s an important development to have workers here.Yesterday, a few of us protested during the execution of Danny Bible in Huntsville, Texas. [Ed.: Since 1976, Texas has executed more than one-third of the national total of prisoners victimized by capital punishment.]Teresa Gutierrez: What FIRE aims to do is be the left flank of the movement supporting migrants who are under attack.We don’t want to leave the issue in the hands of liberals. We don’t want to fight the liberals — they are doing important work, taking cases and saving lives. What we do want to do is influence the movement, and not have the movement’s direction determined by liberal politics.Some speakers today gave militant talks, about fighting back, taking it to the next level, and got great applause — but they also got great applause when they said, “Register to vote in the November elections.”But we know that there are tens to hundreds of thousands of people fed up with the Democratic Party machine, who know that the November elections are nothing to set their sights on, that Democratic President Obama was the deporter in chief, that the Democrats always sell out the struggle.Here in the Valley is a conservative place, where it is hard to fight back, and the police are all over the place. FIRE came to a demonstration and people took our militant literature and talked to us. It really speaks to what people are ready for.FIRE can be the left flank of this movement.FIRE can expose what it means that a white supremacist, wannabe Nazi is at the head of the government. We are going to take that on.FIRE needs to continue to push the momentum that exists for abolishing ICE and link this to abolishing the police. This would make a tremendous contribution to the class struggle.FIRE should raise the death in ICE custody of Roxana Hernández, the trans sister who crossed the border in a caravan from Mexico, and link her case to that of Antwon Rose, the African-American youth who cops killed in Pittsburgh.FIRE should equally push to close both the migrant detention centers and close U.S. prisons.Monica Moorehead: This is such an important crisis that the international working class is facing. Trump as a white supremacist representative of the ruling class is attempting to divide the working class by targeting migrants. We must do everything we can to be the left flank of this movement, to show that independent fightback is the only way to fight the crisis and unite our class. To call for abolishing ICE along with the police, as part of the oppressive class apparatus, and also unite with the other people of color being targeted — Muslims, Black people, Indigenous people. We are all workers, fighting together.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

TCU is offering to send items such as laptops and notebooks to U.S. addresses at no cost to students. Students are required to fill out a form to request this service. The measurements of the box are 12 inches by 12 inches by 5.5 inches.Many students have left campus.

Though students can fill out a request form if they need to stay on campus, TCU is suggesting students leave campus to slow the spread of the virus, said Craig Allen, the director of Housing & Residence Life, in an email. “By asking students to go home, we can limit exposure from having thousands of students on campus every day,” he said.With over 319 international students, that isn’t an option for everyone.Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoTCU is not alone in encouraging its students to go home; many universities and school districts have closed for the rest of the school year. Schools such as Harvard University, for example, forced students to move out March 15. Earlier this week, Baylor University restricted access to housing for most students through the end of the semester, allowing only certain students to remain in on-campus housing. Allen said he doesn’t know if the school will reopen for classes April 3.“This virus and the impact on our university, our state, country and the world is changing,” he said. “The safety of students and all employees is of the utmost importance. If we do not return to regular instruction after April 3rd, I imagine there would be a good reason.” Previous articleHoroscope: March 15, 2020Next articleHoroscope: March 17, 2020 Drew Mitchell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Facebook Linkedin Linkedin Drew Mitchellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/drew-mitchell/ Drew Mitchellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/drew-mitchell/ Facebook Drew Mitchellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/drew-mitchell/ The Office of Religious & Spiritual Life to host eighth annual Crossroads Lecturelast_img read more

She has worked as a freelance for all of the national newspaper titles and a staff journalist in Limerick, helping to launch the Limerick edition of The Evening Echo. Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. Vicky PhelanPhotographer – Paul Sherwood [email protected] LIMERICK woman who exposed the CervicalCheck scandal says that new laws are needed to enshrine management-level accountability in the public service.Vicky Phelan was speaking at the launch this week of a new support group set up with Lorraine Walsh and Stephen Teap, named 221+ after the number of women who have been affected by false-negative smears and withheld information.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The three were on hand for the launch of the new group at Farmleigh in the Phoenix Park, Dublin.Ms Phelan said she did not want to see a commission of investigation “as it would drag on for years and no-one would be accountable in the end. “We’re living in a country where people can get away with things at a management level and not be held accountable,” said Ms Phelan, who exposed the issue by refusing to sign a confidentiality agreement on getting a court settlement against the US laboratory which read the failed smear tests.“Until we start fighting and jumping up and down to try to get it, we’re not going to get accountability. We can’t sack people in this country.”The mother-of-two said that if the campaign she started helps other victims, that gives her a sense of purpose.She also paid tribute to her fellow campaigners. “There isn’t a chance in hell that I would be standing here without Stephan Teap and the other women and families who have been affected by this”, she said.  221+ will offer an opportunity for those affected by the scandal to support each other as well as advocate for change in the health service. “One of the things I will be looking at is legislation for accountability, not just in the health sector but across the public sector and the civil service because we just don’t have it in this country,” she said.Meanwhile, the proposed establishment of a private tribunal to deal with claims arising from the CervicalCheck scandal received a cautious welcome from the 221+ group although it was disappointed Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s commitment to a “totally non-adversarial” process was not followed through.The tribunal, similar to court proceedings but held behind closed doors, was proposed by Judge Charles Meenan in a Government-commissioned report.Ms Phelan urged Health Minister Simon Harris to provide assurances on how the adversarial nature of such a process can be minimised.”Her solicitor Cian O’Carroll, who is also representing several other of the women affected by the scandal, said it added to the choice of options open to his clients.“The problem is the tribunal is in private and it shields the State and labs from the public knowing about negligent errors. Women must also prove their case in an adversarial system,” he said. Limerick on Covid watch list Advertisement Local backlash over Aer Lingus threatlast_img read more

‘Mortgage Choice Act of 2013’ Passes House Vote

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: Bill Huizenga Mortgage Choice Act of 2013 QM The United States House of Representatives  Print This Post ‘Mortgage Choice Act of 2013’ Passes House Vote Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago A bill designed to amend mortgage fee calculations under new industry rules cleared a major hurdle Monday, passing the House despite reservations from critics who say it may reopen the door to irresponsible lending.Introduced last year by a bipartisan group of representatives led by Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-Michigan), H.R. 3211 (the “Mortgage Choice Act of 2013”) would amend the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) to exempt fees from affiliated title companies from counting toward the 3 percent point and fee threshold established in the Qualified Mortgage (QM) rule implemented earlier this year. It would also clarify the treatment of insurance and taxes held in escrow.In a speech before the House vote, Huizenga argued the current definition of points and fees used for the QM test is “confusing and problematic,” asserting, “[M]any affiliated loans, particularly those made to low and moderate-income borrowers, would not qualify as QMs [as a result] and would be unlikely to be made or would only be made available at much higher rates due to heightened liability risks.”Not everyone agrees with the bill’s approach. In a statement released Monday, the Center for Responsible Lending (CRL) said H.R. 3211 could “upset the careful balance struck by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau” in its creation of mortgage rules designed to protect consumers.”It’s deeply concerning how quickly we forget the devastating impact that abusive lending practices had on the housing market and the larger economy,” said Kenneth W. Edwards, VP of federal affairs at CRL. “Countless houses lost, innumerable families affected—and after a long, hard-fought battle to pass the necessary reforms to protect our homes, we find ourselves here again.”Still, Monday’s news garnered praise from industry groups, including the National Association of Realtors, the National Association of Federal Credit Unions, and the Mortgage Bankers Association, among others.center_img Home / Daily Dose / ‘Mortgage Choice Act of 2013’ Passes House Vote The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Bill Huizenga Mortgage Choice Act of 2013 QM The United States House of Representatives 2014-06-10 Tory Barringer Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: Is there a Housing Bubble Ready to Burst?
