Los participantes llevaban pancartas con las fotos de las víctimas del atentado, cuyos nombres se leyeron en voz alta durante la vigilia. Foto de Sharon Sheridan.[Episcopal News Service] Con oraciones y cánticos, un diverso grupo de feligreses se reunió en la iglesia episcopal del Redentor [Episcopal Church of the Redeemer] en Morristown, Nueva Jersey, el 15 de junio para honrar a los que murieron y resultaron heridos en una masacre a tiros que tuvo lugar en un centro nocturno de Orlando, Florida, tres días antes.Mark Beckwith, obispo de la Diócesis de Newark, se unió a los oradores de varias denominaciones y religiones que ofrecieron sus reflexiones durante el culto. Luego él y los miembros del Consejo Clerical de la Zona de Morris condujeron a los participantes en una caminata con velas hasta el parque del pueblo donde alrededor de 500 personas escuchaban atentamente mientras leían los nombres de las 49 personas muertas [en la masacre] al tiempo que distintos individuos sostenían carteles que mostraban los rostros de las víctimas.Los oradores pidieron solidaridad frente a la violencia armada y todas las formas de odio, incluidas la homofobia, el racismo, la islamofobia y la misoginia, a raíz del asesinato de los clientes de un centro nocturno gay, puertorriqueños en su mayoría, cometido por un musulmán estadounidense que fue abatido por la policía al final de la masacre.Fiona MacLachlan, a la derecha, de la iglesia episcopal de San Pedro [St. Peter’s] en Morristown, Nueva Jersey, sostiene la foto de una de las víctimas de la masacre a tiros en un centro nocturno de Orlando, Florida. Foto de Sharon Sheridan.“Como madre de un transexual, siento un dolor de corazón por los padres de las víctimas, dijo Yolanda Baker, miembro [de la iglesia] del Redentor, que es puertorriqueña y quien compartió su meditación en español e inglés. “Estoy por la unidad… Haremos duelo juntos y nos recuperaremos juntos”.La Rda. Cynthia Black, rectora de El Redentor, le agradeció a la comunidad su participación.“Nuestra congregación, que es substancialmente, pero no exclusivamente, LGBT, probablemente pudo haber tenido su propia vigilia y haber compartido su pesar entre nosotros”, dijo ella. “La realidad es que no sólo 49  personas murieron en Orlando… una parte de cada hombre o mujer homosexual, bisexual, transexual, raro, en transición o no conforme con su sexo en Estados Unidos murió en Orlando. Una parte de cada puertorriqueño murió en Orlando, y una parte de todos los que nos aman murió en Orlando. Es por eso que es importante que toda nuestra comunidad saliera esta noche”.Beckwith habló de la devastadora “maldición” —el deseo de disminuir, agredir e incluso matar a otros— que “se ha disparado por todo el mundo, creando una oleada de conmoción, de temor, de cólera y de duelo”, Cada vez más, se ensaña con los marginados, o con aquellos que la gente quiere hacer invisibles, dijo él, nombrando a las víctimas de múltiples masacres en los años recientes: sijs en Wisconsin, niños escolares en Connecticut, afroamericanos en Carolina del Sur y ahora personas LGBT en Florida. Cuando esto sucede, recalcó, “queremos responder del mismo modo”.Debemos enfrentar ese deseo, afirmó, y convertirlo en una bendición. [algo] fundacional para nuestra fe, dijo él, es que “la bendición vence”.Como uno de los coordinadores de Obispos Unidos contra la Violencia Armada, Beckwith sugirió acciones concretas para reducir la violencia armada —incluido el usar términos tales como “trabajar por la seguridad de las armas de fuego”, en lugar de la frase “control de las armas de fuego”, que resulta polémica.“No es un problema de la Constitución. Es un problema de seguridad pública”, dijo él.“No hay ninguna razón en la buena tierra de Dios… de que alguien pueda usar un [fusil de asalto] A-15, afirmó, provocando un aplauso. “Dispara ocho tiros por segundo. Nadie necesita esa arma de fuego”.Él llamó la atención sobre el creciente movimiento de “No te Quedes de Brazos Cruzados [Do Not Stand Idly By] (de Levítico 19:16  KJV) que está ejerciendo presión en los fabricantes de armas para que dejen de fabricar esos fusiles.El Rvdmo. Mark Beckwith, obispo de la Diócesis de Newark, destaca su estola naranja, hecha por la feligresa Colleen Hintz, en una vigilia por las víctimas de la masacre de Orlando, Florida, que tuvo lugar el 15 de junio en la iglesia del Redentor en Morristown, Nueva jersey. Beckwith es uno de los coordinadores de Obispos Unidos contra la Violencia Armada, que se unió a 85 otras agrupaciones a través del país en pedirle a la gente que usara alguna prenda color naranja el 2 de junio como un testimonio contra la violencia armada. Foto de Sharon Sheridan.En los próximos días, le dijo Beckwith a ENS, él espera que aquellos que participaron en la vigilia continuarán ejerciendo presión —política, moral y testimonialmente”— para producir un cambio.A través del país, los episcopales están manifestándose en oración y testimonio en memoria de las víctimas de Orlando y haciendo un llamado a la acción. La vigilia de Morristown fue una de más de una docena que aparecen programadas en la página web de la Diócesis de Newark (los lectores deben chequear con sus iglesias y diócesis locales las noticias de vigilias y otros actos próximos).“He estado en vigilias de oración en estos últimos dos días”, dijo el Rvdmo. Prince Singh, obispo de la Diócesis de Rochester, en un anuncio  que publicó en Facebook el 15 de junio. “Haciendo duelo por el crimen de odio de Orlando y elevando [nuestras] oraciones por todas las víctimas de la violencia, especialmente nuestros hijos de Dios LGBT”.Otro servicio interreligioso de “oraciones, esperanza y fortaleza” estaba programado para esa noche en la iglesia episcopal de Cristo [Christ Episcopal Church], en Pittsford, Nueva York.En Manhattan, alrededor de 130 personas asistieron el 14 de junio a una vigilia de oración interreligiosa en la iglesia episcopal de San Felipe  [St. Philip’s].La catedral de La Trinidad [Trinity Cathedral] en Portland, Oregón, planeaba una eucaristía y una vigilia de oración para el 15 de junio “para orar por todas las víctimas de la masacre de la noche del sábado, para expresar el pesar y el dolor que experimentamos y pedir la sabiduría y la presencia de Dios mientras discernimos un camino a seguir”, escribió el Muy Rdo. Nathan LeRud, deán de la catedral en la página web de esa iglesia. El 19 de junio, luego del oficio dominical que incluirá conmemoraciones, oraciones y música especiales, el obispo diocesano de Oregón Michael Hanley y miembros del grupo AFFIRM de La Trinidad marcharán bajo el estandarte de la catedral en el Desfile anual del Orgullo Homosexual, dijo él.“Los homosexuales saben lo que se siente siendo un chivo expiatorio de la sociedad”, escribió LeRud. “En el mundo actual, esa [condición] de chivos expiatorios se extiende a muchos otros grupos: transexuales, musulmanes, inmigrantes ilegales, propietarios de armas, miembros de la NRA. Pretender ser ‘abiertos y acogedores’ como se nos manda significa comprender no sólo a las personas que me caen bien, la gente que concuerda con mis opiniones y puntos de vista, sino, y muy especialmente, a los que no las comparten. Significa esforzarse en entender e incluso amar a personas como [el asesino de Orlando] Omar Mateen. Nadie —absolutamente nadie— está fuera del alcance del amor de Dios”.La Rda. Elizabeth Morrison (a la izquierda) y la Rda. Linda Gaden, ministras presbiterianas en Whippany y Port Murray, Nueva Jersey, respectivamente, miran las fotos de los que fueron asesinados por un pistolero en un centro nocturno de Orlando, Florida, antes de participar en una vigilia interreligiosa en la iglesia episcopal del Redentor en Morristown, Nueva Jersey, el 15 de junio. Foto de Sharon Sheridan.En Kansas City, Misurí, el director de Servicios Comunitarios Episcopales organizó una manifestación —“una especie de vigilia relámpago”— que reunió a varios centenares de personas e incluyó a oradores de diferentes religiones, dijo el Muy Rdo. Peter DeVeau, deán de la catedral de la Gracia y la Santa Trinidad [Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral] en esa ciudad. El 19 de junio, el oficio de Vísperas, que mantiene su programación habitual, incluirá lecturas especiales, seguidas por “más de un momento de apertura”, dijo él. “Es tiempo de duelo, de reflexión y de resolver lo que sigue a la masacre de Orlando”.Habrá oración con imposición de manos y unción. Los feligreses serán invitados a escribir “compromisos a realizar acciones amorosas y restauradores en nombre del pueblo de Dios y del mundo” en papeles de colores e insertarlos en una especie de biombo para crear una suerte de “muro” de resoluciones.“Va a llevar a todos nosotros a abordar los problemas que crean estos asesinatos en masa”, dijo. “En verdad tenemos que abordar, creo yo, lo que está causando esta clase de ira en nuestra sociedad”.La Diócesis de Chicago brindó oportunidades tanto para la oración como para la acción en su vigilia del 15 de junio en la catedral de Santiago Apóstol [St. James Cathedral]. El oficio concluyó “con una invitación a actuar en contra de la violencia armada, la homofobia y la islamofobia”, según su boletín digital. Después del himno final, invitaron a los participantes a “quedarse para oración, unción y consejo con el equipo pastoral o de diálogo de Santiago Apóstol”.En la Diócesis de Luisiana Occidental, el obispo Jake Owensby predicó en una misa de réquiem en Santiago Apóstol [St James], Alexandria.El ataque perpetrado en Orlando, “fue un ataque a la humanidad misma”, dijo él. “En respuesta a la violencia que asedia nuestra nación y el mundo, algunos buscan sus propias armas, buscan levantar muros y rechazar a los refugiados que procuran asilo en nuestras costas. Esas son respuestas humanas comprensibles… Pero no nos engañemos. No hay nada en los Evangelios respecto a encontrar soluciones matando a los malos. Por el contrario, Jesús explícitamente nos enseña a amar a nuestros enemigos y a poner la otra mejilla”.“El amor es costoso”, concluyó él; “pero la resurrección nos asegura que el amor vence… Insto a que honremos a los que cayeron en Orlando dedicándonos a ser los instrumentos de la paz en nuestras propias vidas, en nuestros barrios, en nuestra nación y en el mundo”.— Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS y cursa una maestría en teología en la Escuela Teológica de Drew, en Madison, Nueva Jersey.

The main source of inspiration for the project was the geometry and height of the apartment. In addition, the house is located near Malevich village – not far from the places where the artist Kazimir Malevic worked and rested. The black and red features in the interior were inspired by his heritage.Initially, we set out to equip the kitchen with space for a recreation area, create a large bedroom, and make a mezzanine above the entrance and bathroom.Save this picture!© Luciano SpinelliInitially the apartment had a kitchen area of ​​9 square meters, the hallway corridor around 8.3 square meters, the loggia was 3, the bathroom was 4 square meters, and a mezzanine.Save this picture!© Luciano SpinelliThe kitchen was originally a small space, with significant space occupied by gas tubes and communications. To beat this, we decided to add even more industrial elements.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe overall style emphasizes the black color in the kitchen appliances. The kitchen was designed by Sergei Semenov of the design studio Fineobjects. It was revived with small tiles, Highlighting the geometry and shape.

London Councils commit to static budget

first_img Howard Lake | 4 November 2006 | News London Councils commit to static budget London Councils (formerly the Association of London Government) has agreed that the grants budget for 2007/8 should remain the same as the previous year, despite fears of cuts.The organisation has been through a major consultation to see how best to distribute funds which has caused it to review the way this is done. Instead of an ‘open bidding’ system, London Councils will ‘commission’ services from the voluntary sector from now on.There had also been a suggestion earlier this year that some money should be returned from the pan-London funds to individual London boroughs to fund local schemes, but this was never carried out.

London Councils Leaders Committee is meeting on 14 November to decide what the actual priorities are for next year. A spokesman for London Councils said: With a £28m pot we will not be able to fund everything. This is not to say that some of the causes are not worthy, but that we have some tough choices to make.UK Fundraising understands that organisations currently receiving funding but which will not receive funding under the new regime will be given a six-month grant to ease the transition to further funding from other organisations.

Five Turkish journalists wounded in Aleppo, latest danger zone for media personnel

first_imgNews February 3, 2021 Find out more SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts Read in Arabic / بالعربيةFive Turkish journalists were wounded two days ago while covering fierce fighting in the northern city of Aleppo. Three of them, working for the Turkish news agency Anadolu, were hit by sniper fire while the other two, employed by the Qatari satellite TV channel Al-Jazeera, were hit by shrapnel from a shell that exploded nearby (video link).“Journalists are now falling victim to violence in Aleppo, Syria’s latest war front,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This week’s incidents join a long list of attacks and cases of abusive treatment of journalists since the start of the uprising in Syria. They fuel concern about the danger for media personnel in the north of the country.“The location of the most intense fighting has been moving around for the country for more than a year but one characteristic remains the same: journalists are very exposed and no one seems to be trying very hard to protect them. The safety of these foreign and Syrian news providers –reporters and their support personnel – must be guaranteed not only by the government forces but also by the rebel Free Syrian Army.”Anadolu photographer Sinan Gûl sustained serious leg injuries from sniper fire while covering the Syrian air force bombardment of the Salah al-Din neighbourhood of Aleppo. (video link) The two other Anadolu journalists with him, reporter Samet Dogan and cameraman Kenan Yesilyurt, sustained less serious injuries. The three were able to return to Turkey yesterday.“We went to the region to cover the military operations,” Gül said. “When the snipers began firing at us, there were no longer any soldiers from the opposing side with us. I thought the neighbourhood was safe because the soldiers had begun to advance. I nonetheless told Kenan not to move. I crossed the road in order to take cover behind a car and, at that moment, I was the target of intense gunfire. The snipers were aiming at me. I was hit in the foot and leg. They kept on firing at me. As I was protected by the car, I was not hit in the head but I lost a lot of blood.”After being taken to Aleppo’s Sifa Hospital, Gul was evacuated to the Sehit Kamil state hospital in the south-eastern Turkish city of Gaziantep, where a bullet was removed from his right leg. Late yesterday afternoon, he was transferred to Istanbul’s Bahçelievler Hastanesi medical complex for a tissue graft.The other two injured journalists, Al-Jazeera reporter Amr Khachram and cameraman Hakan Bayginer, are currently been treated in a hospital on the Turkish side of the border for the injuries they received from a shell while interviewing rebels. Doctors said that their condition was stable and that they would be able to leave the hospital in a few days.These latest incidents involving journalists came three days after Dutch photographer Jeroens Oerlemans and British photographer John Cantlie were released by the foreign “jihadis” who had held them in their camp for a week after kidnapping them in Aleppo on 19 July.The Free Syrian Army has a duty to protect journalists and their assistants and to ensure that there is no recurrence of the kind of incident experienced by British reporter Alex Thomson in June, when he says that rebels deliberately led him and other journalists into an area where the Syrian government soldiers were shooting everyone on sight.

first_imgCommunity News L.A. County Department of Public Social Services Launches Virtual Campaign to Serve New CalFresh Customers The need to provide information in order to prevent food insecurity has never been greater STAFF REPORTS Published on Tuesday, May 12, 2020 | 11:14 am Make a comment Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community News Top of the News STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy More Cool Stuff 23 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Photo courtesy LA County DPSSThe Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) is using virtual outreach strategies to promote its annual CalFresh Awareness Month campaign and help more people enroll. In April 2020, according to data received from the State, DPSS received 126,875 CalFresh applications, which is a 179% increase in comparison to April 2019. CalFresh is known federally as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP.“There are thousands of County residents who have never depended on public benefits to put food on the table before. They are facing food insecurity and will need CalFresh Program as well as other DPSS services,” says Director Antonia Jiménez.Ten years after this awareness campaign launch in May 2010, CalFresh food assistance is needed more than ever to help individuals and households who have just lost jobs, businesses, homes and other financial resources. The Department will use this year’s campaign to help new customers apply for CalFresh benefits and introduce them to other assistance programs offered.Helping those impacted by the COVID-19 crisisAccording to the State of California’s Employment Development Department, the county’s March 2020 unemployment rate increased to 6.3 percent from 4.3 percent in February 2020. This is a significant increase from 4.6 percent the previous year.The COVID-19 crisis caused DPSS to close its doors to the public on March 16 to help slow the spread of the deadly virus. The Department encourages customers to apply for benefits online at www.dpss.lacounty.gov or at www.getcalfresh.org.“In difficult times like this, we are the safety net for millions in L.A. County,” said Jiménez. She added that many have turned to DPSS as a result of the temporary economic downturn.Information about applying for CalFresh, produced in multiples languages, will be shared on all DPSS communication platforms, including social media and website. The department is urging the public to follow the activities and share the information with those in their community who need it most.Celebrating 10 Years of CalFresh Awareness MonthNow implemented statewide, CalFresh Awareness Month in L.A. County has been recognized by the California Department of Social Services as a “best practice” to connect with diverse and hard to serve communities through strategic and culturally sensitive outreach.This year’s campaign will also celebrate new partnerships with the County’s Office of Immigrant Affairs and community-based organization and media outlets that serve the county’s hardest to reach communities and populations. The department is also partnering with all 88 cities in the County and local school districts to share information with residents and students during virtual council meetings and other communication platforms.

DS News Webcast: Wednesday 9/3/2014

first_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: Jordan Funderburk Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Is Rise in Forbearance Volume Cause for Concern? 2 days ago The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced in a report released last week it has sold $15.8 billion dollars in nonperforming loans since 2010, cutting losses to its insurance fund and saving thousands of homeowners from foreclosure. Since the inception of the Single-Family Loan Sale program four years ago, HUD has sold approximately 91,000 loans, approximately 38,000 of which had been sold through the second quarter of 2013. About half of those 38,000 had been resolved, meaning they were either foreclosed upon or reached some other solution and are no longer nonperforming loans.HUD stated in the report that foreclosure was averted in about 34 percent of those loans that were resolved, which comes to about 6,400 homes, and that those properties would have been foreclosed upon had it not been for the sale of those loans. Meanwhile, sales of the loans resulted in reduced overall losses to HUD’s Mutual Mortgage Insurance fund. Losses to the fund declined from 63.5 percent in the first quarter of 2010, when the SFLS program began, down to 52.9 percent in the second quarter of 2014The U.S. is not prepared to accommodate its rapidly growing older population where housing needs are concerned, according to a report by Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies and AARP Foundation released on Tuesday. The report estimates that the population of adults age 50 and above will reach 133 million by 2030, a jump of more than 70 percent since the year 2000. But while their numbers are rapidly increasing, the amount of housing that is affordable, physically accessible, and located well is not. The rising cost of housing often forces older adults to cut back in other areas such as food, health care, or retirement savings.
