Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Jobs & Calls Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Comments (9) By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Jan 6, 2017 Rector Hopkinsville, KY [Episcopal News Service – Decatur, Texas] The story of the Episcopal Church of Wise County is rooted in Ellen and Mark Whitley’s search for a good place to worship. As Ellen tells it, the couple moved to the area north of Fort Worth, Texas, just before the diocese’s 2008 split and found the local Episcopal congregation. However, when she asked if she could be a lector, she was told, “the men would have to agree to it.”“We left and I had a sour taste in my mouth,” she said. “And I didn’t look (for another church) for quite a while.”But at the end of 2014, she wrote to then-Bishop Provisional Rayford High, saying God had “smacked me up the back of the head” and told her to do something about the lack of a place for Episcopalians to gather in Wise County. High came to their house to discuss the need and the Rev. Tracie Middleton, a deacon with the diocesan staff, helped support their effort.“Within a year, we were here,” she recalled, during a November 2016 interview with Episcopal News Service in the sanctuary of what is now the Episcopal Church of Wise County.In between, there was morning prayer and Eucharist at the Whitleys’ house and, when there got to be too many people for that, the budding congregation moved to the community center in Boonville in March 2015. Episcopalians in Wichita Falls donated prayer books, an altar book, a Gospel book and two candlesticks. St. Stephen’s in Hurst sent hymnals.That same month Sweetie Pie’s Ribeyes restaurant entered the story. Episcopalians and other interested people gathered there for lunch and to talk about finding a more permanent place. After lunch at the Decatur restaurant, the group took a short trip of a few blocks to see the historic Episcopal Mission of the Ascension, which was then functioning as a wedding chapel.They peered in the windows, liked what they saw and gathered for noonday prayer in the small grassy parking lot next door. Soon, the Episcopalians came to an agreement with the owner of the building that dated to 1889 when the Rt. Rev. Alexander C. Garrett, the noted missionary bishop of northern Texas, founded it. The small white building had been deconsecrated in the 1940s, sold and used as a mattress factory.The church was dirty and cluttered the first time they walked in but “we knew this was where we wanted to be,” Mark Whitley said. The congregation banded together to spruce up the place. In addition, Whitley, who was about to be confirmed, built the altar with no screws or nails, instead fashioning pegs to hold all the pieces together. He also made the Paschal candleholder, credence table, baptismal font and altar bookstand.When the Episcopalians began worshipping in the building just after Ascension Day in May 2015, representatives of the Episcopal Church of Wichita Falls, who brought along some more prayer books as gifts, joined them.“This place is an outward and visible sign of God’s action in your life as a community of faith,” said the Rt. Rev. J. Scott Mayer, during a November 2016 Eucharist to reconsecrate the building. Mayer was elected the Diocese of Fort Worth’s fourth provisional bishop in May 2015.And that community of faith reaches beyond the small church with the white pews and the flyswatter hanging on the wall next to an Episcopal calendar in the tiny narthex. It has instituted what it calls “Mission of the Month,” highlighting a different organization to help each month. Examples of the members’ efforts include helping a battered women’s shelter, collecting food for the school children who will not be eating at school because of holidays and weekends, and helping a pet shelter collect supplies.“Even though we’re a very small community we’re being recognized as a worshipping community that is reaching out to the people here in Decatur and in Wise County in general,” said the Rev. Anthony Hiatt, priest-in-charge.Two leaders inthe congregation have been elected to serve the wider Episcopal Church. Senior Warden Jill McClendon was recently chosen as the diocese’s lay trustee for the University of the South and Hiatt is first clergy alternate in the diocese’s 2018 General Convention deputation.Hiatt, a bi-vocational priest who also designs rail cars for Trinity Industries Inc. in Dallas, has been with the Wise County church since Aug. 1, 2015, in what is his first solo assignment.The members make wise use of social media for keeping in touch with their communities and each other, including having an internet-based book club.The Wise County Episcopalians can show the rest of the church “what we can do from the ground up, building from nothing by people who are committed,” said Hiatt, adding that they are learning that what they receive in return from giving is great. “That’s what seems to keep us going and keeps us coming back and keeps us doing more.”– The Rev.

New Zealand Maori All Blacks start tour well with good win over Canada

first_imgTuesday Nov 5, 2013 New Zealand Maori All Blacks start tour well with good win over Canada Canada hosted the New Zealand Maori All Blacks on Sunday as part of the latter’s tour of North America. Despite Canada scoring first, the visitors scored six tries to win 40-15 in front of over 20 000 fans in Toronto.Halfback Jamison Gibson-Park scored twice after a late switch to the starting lineup after Piri Weepu was ruled out with a knee injury shortly before kickoff (but still led the Haka).Weepu has since returned home, as has hooker Hika Elliot, who picked up a neck injury midway through the first half. Tasman hooker Quentin MacDonald will replace Elliot, while Wellington halfback Chris Smylie will come in for Weepu.Canada were expected to play a tighter game but surprised the Maori side by spreading the ball at every opportunity, and managed to score early on. They couldn’t maintain it though.“When they got an opportunity, they converted it. When we got an opportunity, we didn’t quite nail it,” said Canada coach Kieran Crowley, whose team now heads to Europe to meet Georgia, Romania and Portugal. The Maori team will play the United States in Philadelphia next weekend. The official highlights below cover the Haka, some of the chances and all the triesCredit: rugbycanadacommTime: 7:58ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

RFI returns to the airwaves after a week of radio silence

first_img RSF_en Help by sharing this information Reporters Without borders is relieved to learn that the broadcast signal of the French public radio station Radio France Internationale, switched off on 31 December on the orders of the Congolese communications minister, Lambert Mende, was restored today.The suspension of broadcasts by the station, which was criticised for its coverage of the events since the disputed presidential election last month, had aroused international protests, notably from France and the United States. The news is tempered, however, by a 45-day closure order issued three days ago against the radio station Radio Communautaire du Katanga by Mukanya Ilunga, head of communications in Katanga province.The station was criticised for re-broadcasting RFI programmes in defiance of government orders. Reporters Without Borders deplores this illegal action and calls on the appropriate authorities to restore RCK’s broadcasts immediately. 06.01.12 – Regulators to decide RFI’s future after government orders it off the air News February 24, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts February 18, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders condemns the shutdown of broadcasts by the French public radio station Radio France Internationale ordered by the authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo and calls for their immediate restoration.The press freedom organization also condemned the government’s failure to follow correct procedures and the methods used to take the station off the air.It is the official responsibility of the Higher Council for Broadcasting and Communications (CSAC) to inform the political authorities of any decision to halt broadcasts by any media outlet. In the event, it was the authorities themselves who took the first step before asking the regulatory body to take up the case. “Switching off the RFI signal demonstrates once again the unease and tension on the part of the Congolese authorities over how the international media treat current events in their country,” Reporters Without Borders said.“The latter are all too often pilloried for merely doing their job of informing the public.“The switch-off also raises serious questions about the independence of the CSAC. How are we to interpret this precautionary measure taken by the information minister, followed by the transfer of the case to the Higher Council, when the CSAC itself is the only body competent to take up such a case and order a closure?” asked the organization, which recalled that its partner in the DRC, Journalist in Danger, had recommended the abolition of the CSAC in its report published on 28 December.On 2 January, communications minister Lambert Mende announced he had ordered the temporary suspension of RFI’s frequencies as a “precautionary measure” until the CSAC ruled on the case.The shutdown is linked directly to the radio station’s coverage of the disputed results of the presidential election last November. The government accused RFI of trying to “trivialize the anti-constitutional comedy of Mr. Tshisekedi”, a reference to opposition leader Etienne Tshisekedi who stood against President Joseph Kabila in the election.The French minister for co-operation, Henri de Raincourt, reaffirmed France’s “commitment to freedom of the press and freedom of information” at talks with his Congolese counterpart.Two days ago, the United States called for the immediate restoration of RFI broadcasts in the country. The Congolese authorities suspended RFI transmissions between July 2009 and October 2010, when they accused the radio station of conducting a campaign to demoralize the country’s armed forces.At the instigation of Journalist In Danger, a campaign and a petition were launched in February 2010 for the resumption of RFI broadcasts. It returned to the airwaves after intense negotiations between the government and the station’s managers.RFI’s special correspondent in the DRC, Ghislaine Dupont, was expelled in 2006.

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Subscribe Los Angeles is notoriously a car city – it’s the home of the drive-through, the land of monotonous freeways and it’s probably the traffic capital of the nation. But that may be changing.There really is a big shift in the public transportation mindset,” said Peter Lee, CEO and Co-founder of Pasadena-based Urb-e. “People are looking to use public transportation more and millennials are more interested in using public transportation than buying a car.”Despite the expansion in Southern California’s Metro lines, there is still a problem with “the last mile.” This “last mile” can be the distance between your home and the bus stop or your workplace and the bus stop.Urban 626, a Pasadena design collective, has a solution to “the last mile.” They are bringing a revolution on wheels. This team of creative entrepreneurs has a laundry list of accomplishments but are all connected by their passion for Pasadena. Peter Lee, Sven Etzelsberger and Grant Delgatti are the trio behind the Urb-e.“Our goal is to help you live a little more efficiently,” said Lee. This zero-emissions personal transportation vehicle won Innovate Pasadena’s “Most Fundable” award this year.This lightweight, deceptively elegant electric personal transportation vehicle is the solution you have been waiting for. This 35-pound, foldable electric scooter may look like a toy but appearances can be deceiving. The Urb-e is a revolutionary personal transportation vehicle.Each Urb-e has over 200 parts but is designed to look seamless, explained Lee. The Urb-e is manufactured from extruded aircraft-grade aluminum and carbon fiber. Lee lovingly explained that each component is like a work of art, “we want to make it beautiful from the inside out.”“There’s a real value behind the design. It’s designed in Pasadena and manufactured in California. We all live here, we work here and we feel we have a responsibility to this [community],” said Lee.The machines are assembled by hand in the back of the Urb-e’s store on Colorado Boulevard, which is something rare nowadays. Builders, Junior and Carl, sign each one after the scooters undergo three quality assurance checks.“There are plenty of naysayers out there,” said Lee. “People say we’re building with too expensive materials, that people won’t use the product…”. The team feels the best remedy for this skepticism is to take one for a spin because riding the Urb-e is an experience unlike anything else.The Urb-e has a lower center of gravity than a bicycle, which makes for a more stable and comfortable ride. It has a surprising amount of maneuverability and reaches speeds of up to 15 miles per hour and has a range of 20 miles on a single 4-hour battery charge. It’s just low enough to the ground that you can put your feet to the road if needed but there’s also a rear wheel brake. Urb-e is a smooth ride that puts you in the center of your city and reinvents the way you move.“Everybody rides it and they just smile,” said Lee. The entire staff rides Urb-es to work, so if you see someone zip by you while you’re stuck in traffic, you know what they’re riding.Don’t just take Lee’s word for it, take an Urb-e out for a spin and start the transportation revolution.Urb-e is located at 235 East Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena.

St Enda’s future remains uncertain

first_imgNewsLocal NewsSt Enda’s future remains uncertainBy admin – January 20, 2011 658 THE St Endas Sports Complex controversy rumbles on, with confirmation from Tony O’Gorman, chairman of the Board of Management, that it is to close for a three week period for a further Health and Safety audit.However, the long term future remains uncertain.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up According to an informed source,  when it reopens, staff will have to reapply for their jobs at reduced pay.Last week, Mr O’Gorman told the Limerick Post that behind the scenes talks had produced a survival plan for the complex. By Monday afternoon, however, it emerged that a second Health and Safety audit was to be conducted and that a reopening of the complex could be expected in September. In another twist, it is now confirmed that a rescue plan is again being implemented.Board member, Cllr Jim Long told the Limerick Post that they have received a pledge of €200,000 from Limerick Regeneration to refurbish the complex.“We are getting €100,000 from the Board of Management and €55,000 each from Limerick City Council and another Limerick Regeneration fund, as well as €44,000 from the Department of Education and a very real possibility of €130,000 from Limerick City Council that has been allocated to sports by the council“That gives us a total of €584,000 and we will also be launching a fundraising campaign and  implementing a streamlining of the complex.“I’m now confidently putting it out that this is  a rescue plan and there should be no more talk of St Enda’s Sports Complex going out of business”.
