Kameron Carter, and Racism and Racial Justice with Eduardo Bonilla-Silva.Curry has made racial reconciliation one of the priorities of his ministry as presiding bishop.  He has said, “The choice is ours: chaos or community. That work is the work of finding ways for people to come together to really create and be what Dr. King called the ‘beloved community.’ That’s not just some Utopian ideal. That, frankly, is the difference between life and death for the world.”A preview of Curry’s class is here.Trinity Institute is an annual conference in its 45th year that presents emerging and inclusive theological and social perspectives and engages participants in inquiry, dialogue, and reflection.

Diane Dulin has written a series of meditations for the Episcopal Peace Fellowship based on the lectionary readings for each of the six Sundays of Lent. They are offered, writes Dulin, “to those who live under the yoke of oppression in Palestine and those who work tirelessly for justice and refuse to give up.”The reflections can be used in worship, study groups, organizational meetings and individual time. These reflections delve deeply into the occupied villages and besieged cities of the West Bank and the agony of Gaza, and the struggle for equality, dignity and freedom on the part of Palestinians. The stories found there will inspire readers “for the ongoing struggle for equality in our own society and for freedom from fear and want across the world in these increasingly urgent times,” the group says.Dulin’s meditations can be found by clicking here.Get your 2016 Saintly Scorecard, a guide for Lent MadnessInspired by college basketball tournaments, Lent Madness pits 32 saints against each other in a bracket, as each saint seeks to win the coveted Golden Halo.

first_img Something Fishy supports two Apopka CharitiesIf you love seafood, you need to check out Apopka’s newest seafood restaurant, Something Fishy.Something Fishy is owned and operated by Patrice and Terence Phillips.  The Grand Opening Fish Fry is set for April 23-24.Something Fishy is a reflection of the Phillip family’s gatherings and celebrations over the years.  The menu offers a variety of selections including Fish Tacos and Crab Cakes.Terence said “We wanted our menu to be a little bit different,  we add a little flair and offer some salads,  fresh seafood that’s grilled, seared and of course fried. We are also looking to add gluten free options to our menu as well.”This a new endeavour for the entire Phillip’s family. Terence and Patrice have been married for 21 years. They moved from Buffalo, New York to Apopka 9 years ago with their three children Gabrielle 25,  Kenneth 21,  and Christopher 13.  Terence and Patrice are originally from Bayside, New York. Terence worked at the Greater Orlando Airport in Telecommunications, but always had the desire and dream to own his own restaurant. After 8 years of working at the airport, Terence resigned from his job.With love, encouragement and help from family and friends, Terence is now living his dream by opening Something Fishy. Patrice works at Grace Medical Home which is a for non-profit organization that specializes in providing medical care for the working uninsured. Their three children work for Dad at the restaurant.Something Fishy has selected two local charities to support. The New Journey  Youth Center in Apopka and Lift Disability Network will receive a portion of their monthly sales for the entire year.  Patrice Phillips said ” Our restaurant allows us the opportunity to give back to the community.  We will be hosting meet and greet networking events at Something Fishy so we can connect with the community and showcase the charities we support.”Stop in. Enjoy Something Fishy. And support a local charity.Something Fishy is in the Wekiva Riverwalk (2107 E Semoran Blvd, Apopka, FL 32703). April 12, 2016 at 7:14 am Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. 1 COMMENT Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Congratulations to the owners for opening a restaurant in Apopka! Welcome! I like some fish. I like fried flounder, and I like white cod fish batter fried. I also like fried drum. All fish have to be fried for me. I’m from the south, and you know what they say about the south, everything is fried! Not so, but a lot of things. I always liked Arthur Treachers. That was my favorite fish place, and they went out, as I don’t know of any still around. I loved their fish. I like Long Johns too. I think this new place is for people who like more fish choices, cooked different ways. My husband is a big fish dish lover. He likes them fried, baked, whatever, and eats seafood wherever he can get it, as I don’t cook seafood for him, hardly ever. He will probably come and order something. I love the name of your restaurant, Something Fishy!

Paul Williams red card for strike on Heinrich Brussow

first_imgThursday Oct 6, 2011 Paul Williams red card for strike on Heinrich Brussow There’s only been one red card at the World Cup so far, so here’s another look at the sending off of Samoan Paul Williams during their 13-5 loss to South Africa last week. A few days back it was confirmed that Williams would face no further punishment. Anyone who watched the game live will acknowledge that it was a fantastic match but was ill-tempered and poorly managed by referee Nigel Owens and his assistants. Owens unsurprisingly received heavy criticism post match, particularly from the Samoan camp.Flanker Heinrich Brussow had been held back and after repeated attempts to get free by swatting at Williams’ arms, he was then struck with an open hand by the fullback. It wasn’t the first off the ball incident of the match, with Owens taking a lenient view on at least two other incidents. Assistant referee Stuart Terheege described this one as a deliberate strike to the face though, hence the red card for Williams.Replays showed that it wasn’t a punch, and Brussow had stayed down for longer than he possibly should have. All things considered, it wasn’t a huge surprise to see someone receive a red card. Owens evened things up a minute later by yellow carding John Smit for a deliberate knock down.Williams faced a disciplinary hearing on the weekend and admitted his guilt, and received no further punishment based on the mitagating factors, which included the nature of the strike and the lack of injury that was caused from it.There’s a few things to note from this incident. Firstly, players who hold back other players should be dealt with more severely. Sure it has always been a part of rugby, but when it’s deliberate and stops a player like Brussow from getting to the next breakdown, it becomes a serious problem.The second point is that often we see players get away with striking the arm or hand of the player in an attempt to be freed from their grip. Surely both aspects should be addressed and stamped out if we want a cleaner, fairer game. Take a look at the related posts below they video. They’re good examples of similar incidents, although the difference there is that they show the player being held back striking out.

New footage shows moment Owen Farrell pushed Scotland players in the tunnel before kick-off

first_imgMonday Feb 26, 2018 New footage shows moment Owen Farrell pushed Scotland players in the tunnel before kick-off While losing to Scotland for the first time in ten years will weigh heavily over the England squad, they now have to wait and see if Owen Farrell will face punishment for the scuffle in the tunnel before kick-off. We’ve got new footage of the incident.  Six Nations Rugby will investigate what actually happened after BBC cameras picked up on the pre-match skirmish and it was then shown and discussed in studio at halftime.“Six Nations Rugby will be writing to the unions to request clarification on what happened in the tunnel,” said a statement on Sunday. The explanations from the Rugby Fooball Union (RFU) and Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) will determine the next steps.Farrell could be seen charging into the tunnel after both sets of players had completed their warm-up prior to the match, that Scotland won 25-13, kicking off.In this new footage that we’ve kindly been sent, you can see how Farrell tried to weave through the Scotland players, but then appeared to push them aside with little respect. Unfortunately that’s when the video ended, but it gives you an idea of how it looked from that angle, as Scotland’s Ryan Wilson in particular took exception to what went on.England coach Eddie Jones commented after the match that he did not know about it, while Scotland skipper John Barclay played down the incident, saying that he had only heard about it.“I heard about it but I am always the first off the pitch after the warm-up and I was in the toilets. It is one of those things that gets built up into something more than it was. It is a big game and a big rivalry. It was niggly and physical with a lot on the line.”credit: rawrugby/bbc/davejamiesonADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

House 1 / Namelok

first_img The Netherlands Manufacturers: Trespa, VELUX Commercial, Bulthaup, Formani, SensoSave this picture!© Christian van der KooyText description provided by the architects. The first house designed by Namelok is inspired by liberal theories of mid-century architects like Lina Bo Bardi and Aldo van Eyck. The design of House 1 serves as a perfect base for a young and modern family where three design principles are at the base: the kitchen as the beating heart, openness through horizontal and vertical connections and visible constructions versus tangible textures.Save this picture!© Christian van der KooyThe house is situated at a new building site at the edge of Rotterdam, where it overlooks a typical Dutch polder landscape and where the skyline of the city centre is visible at the horizon. The landscape and beautiful view can be seen from the spacious and naturally exposed kitchen which extends all the way up to the roof, through the wide vide. However, the living room is completely different: a dim lighted room for more quiet and intimate moments with the family. The chimney separates the rooms, functions as a natural backbone throughout the house and also connects the garden area to the living area with its in- and outside fireplace.Save this picture!© Christian van der KooyThese important features all revolve around the concept of maximizing human potential, which both Lina Bo Bardi and Aldo van Eyck used in their architectural concepts. The separation of the living areas with functional and natural features creates a different purpose for all rooms in the house. “We tried to create the home in such a way that all of the rooms have a different atmosphere for varying tendencies. It takes the concept of the two famous architects to adhere a different character to every space in the house as to make the family feel at home during any part of the day.”Save this picture!© Christian van der KooyThe materials used go together to form a minimalistic yet warm feeling for the design. The coarse plaster and frost grey bricks have a minimalistic design but add tangible textures to the inside and outside of the house and chimney. The vertical western red cedar slats add warmth, yet also define and unite the different parts of the house because of the difference in colour and texture.Save this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!© Christian van der KooySave this picture!1st FloorSave this picture!© Christian van der KooyThe architectural label Namelok takes a lot of inspiration from fashion and therefore divides their projects in collections. House 1 was part of the AW17 collection ‘Playtime’ which is a tribute to Lina Bo Bardi and her radical and playful designs at the concept’s base. Every collection offers a new vision for coming projects.Save this picture!© Christian van der KooyProject gallerySee allShow lessNew Ateliers University of Fine Arts / ANDREAS SCHÜRING ARCHITECTSSelected ProjectsThe 2018 EyeEm Photography AwardsCall for Submissions Share CopyHouses•Rotterdam, The Netherlands House 1 / Namelok House 1 / NamelokSave this projectSaveHouse 1 / NamelokSave this picture!© Christian van der Kooy+ 24Curated by María Francisca González Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895616/house-1-namelok Clipboard Architects: Namelok Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Projects Area:  230 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895616/house-1-namelok Clipboard 2018 Houses Photographs Year:  Photographs:  Christian van der Kooy Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeNamelokOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRotterdamRotterdamThe NetherlandsPublished on June 11, 2018Cite: “House 1 / Namelok” 11 Jun 2018.

Bay Area shows support for Caravana 43 from Mexico

first_imgSan FranciscoWW photo: Terri KayBerkeley, CaliforniaWW photo: Terri KayBerkeley and San Francisco, Calif., April 6 — Parents and students with the Caravana 43 traveled to the Bay Area, where supporters organized five days of rallies, marches, forums, vigils and press conferences April 2-6. The visit will culminate this afternoon with a picket line at the Mexican Consulate in San Francisco. Hundreds of supporters turned out in both Berkeley and San Francisco with signs and banners in support of this grassroots struggle, led by the parents of disappeared Normalista students in Mexico. The disappearance of these youths has shaken the Mexican government to its core.The group’s website states: “Caravana 43 is a project developed with the purpose of bringing to the United States parents and classmates of the 43 Normalista students who disappeared on September 26, 2014, in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico. There are three Caravanas covering over 40 cities from the U.S./Mexico border along the Pacific, Central and Atlantic region states. The main aim is to provide an international forum for the parents who have lost their children in a government of systemic violence and impunity.  Another important goal of the Caravana is to shed light on U.S. foreign policy, specifically the Mérida Initiative and its connection to socioeconomic conditions and violence in Mexico.” (caravana43.com)At the April 2 opening rally, one of the parents requested that supporters “ask the U.S. government to stop sending weapons to Mexico. … If the government must fall, so be it!” The next day, at a forum on the University of California at Berkeley campus, a parent, referring to Mexico, said: “If you vote, you should burn your ballot. … The people put the government in and can take it out.”Included in the group were a Normalista student who escaped, joined by his brother and father. These family members had originally gone to the town of Ayotzinapa to bring him home, but wound up joining with him and others in their six-month struggle to find the missing students and get justice. The Normalista student challenged the Berkeley students not to “rest on their laurels,” referring to the radical reputation of the university, but to challenge the government here regarding all the police violence he had heard about in the U.S.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Some Internet cafés ordered to close

first_img December 28, 2020 Find out more News News Help by sharing this information News CambodiaAsia – Pacific RSF decries Cambodian plan for Chinese-style “Great Firewall” News to go further Follow the news on Cambodia Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and the Cambodian Center for Independent Media (CCIM) raise their concerns about online freedom in Cambodia as the Minister of Telecommunications, So Khun, signed a circular on November 16th, 2012, to regulate the use of Internet in the country.According to the decree issued by the ministry, Internet cafes cannot be located within 500 meters of a school or allow their clients to gamble, porn surf, visit websites selling drugs or commit crimes that threaten national security or “traditions”. The Minister of Telecommunications also stated that “students can learn new technology as long as (it) is legal”. “The lack of definition of the notions of “entertaining website”, “game” or “traditions”, leaves a wide interpretation of the decision if applied. This is a step towards a tighter control of the Net in Cambodia”, said Christophe Deloire, RSF’s Secretary-General and Pa Nguon Teang, CCIM’s Director. “It is a decree, meaning that there is a will to impose a decision to Cambodian citizens on their use of the Internet. We have seen this happening in neighboring countries such as Vietnam and Burma and are very concerned about Cambodia ignoring its international human rights obligations. We are therefore encouraging the UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Cambodia to investigate further the situation during his stay in the country ”, they continued.The news was published by local media on Friday, December 7th before Dr. Subedi, the United-Nations Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Cambodia arrived in the country where he will stay until December 15th. It is its eighth mission in the Kingdom since he took office in 2009. The year 2012 is known to have been bad in terms of human rights violations in Cambodia. On December 9th, the local NGO Licadho published a report in which it states “Recent threats and attacks against HRDs have been overwhelmingly targeted at four main groups: community representatives entangled in land disputes; factory workers and union leaders; NGOs and NGO staff; and journalists”. Pa Nguon Teang insisted that Cambodian authorities are aggressively closing all means for freedoms of expression in the country.” If this decree is applied, it will help the government to introduce a law to control the internet use”, he concluded.In February 2012, a decree had already been imposed on Internet and telephone service providers to install surveillance cameras in order to “promote protection of national security, safety and social order for the country”.

To contact Casperson, e-mail: [email protected] Fannie Mae’s Economic and Strategic Research Group (ESR) released its November 2017 Economic and Housing Outlook, which includes monthly updates on economic development, economic forecast, multifamily market commentary, and housing forecast.This month, economic developments reported the first print of Q3 economic growth showed surprising resiliency—as the expected economic hit from the recent natural disasters either failed to materialize or was drowned out by business optimism.“Recent data showed a stronger pickup in domestic demand than anticipated, leading us to increase our growth forecast for the final quarter of this year and coming quarters,” said Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan.The economic growth forecast report revealed an increase by two-tenths to 2.4 percent following a stronger-than-expected estimate of Q3 real GDP growth and an improvement to the Q4 outlook.“We also revised higher our 2018 growth forecast to 2 percent,” Duncan added. “Tax cuts, if enacted, present upside risk to our growth forecast for next year but could also lead to more aggressive Fed action. Housing still remains a drag on the economy, as shortages of labor and available lots, coupled with rising building material prices, further complicate existing inventory, affordability, and sales challenges.”The group’s housing forecast outlook reveals that housing remains a soft spot, and is expected to “subtract from GDP growth for the third consecutive quarter” as low housing inventory continues to provide challenges to home prices at the expense of affordability.In addition, Fannie Mae announced on Thursday that it will resume low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) activities in an effort to provide a reliable source of capital for affordable rental housing and underserved markets.According to the release, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) approved Fannie Mae’s re-entry into the LIHTC market as an equity investor effective immediately.Jeffery Hayward, EVP, Multifamily at Fannie Mae said this is a significant step forward for the enterprise to better serve the multifamily market and play an integral role in addressing America’s affordable housing crisis.“The LIHTC program has long been the most effective tool at driving housing supply for low- and very low-income families,” Hayward said. “Fannie Mae’s renewed participation in these business activities will support the LIHTC market by providing a reliable source of capital and a stabilizing influence on affordable housing throughout diverse economic markets and cycles.”Since its beginning, the LIHTC program has built nearly 3 million apartment units, housing about 6.7 million low-income families, and currently finances the construction and rehabilitation of almost all subsidized housing in the U.S. Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agocenter_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save November 16, 2017 1,628 Views Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agolast_img read more

The suggestion was made by a division bench comprised of Justice Siddhartha Varma and Justice Ajit Kumar, after it was informed that the residents are “freely mixing” with each other and are not taking precautions like wearing of masks and washing of hands etc. “Though we see that the economy is reviving, we are also seeing from the various news reports that the infection of Covid-19 virus is speedily rising. This probably is because of the fact that the denizens of the State of Uttar Pradesh do not understand the concept of “Unlock-2″ Somehow because of the Unlock-2, our people have got a wrong impression that they can now freely mix with each other and move around,” the bench observed. It therefore directed the State Government to “chalk out” a plan to see how the concept of physical distancing can be implemented in letter and spirit. “We would not hesitate in suggesting that incarceration and high fines be thought of. We cannot understand why the Uttar Pradesh Epidemic Disease Covid-19 Regulations, 2020 is not being implemented properly which clearly envisages action under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code. Also we cannot understand why Section 144 of the Cr.P.C., which we are told is in force, is not being used,” the bench added. In these circumstances, Additional Advocate General Manish Goyal assured the Court that a decision on this issue will be taken by a high level committee. “We expect that the denizens of the State of U.P. become sensitive to the issue of physical distancing. We expect that not only would they maintain physical distancing but would also help the administration by providing information about persons who come from out of State and were not observing physical distancing and were not quaranting themselves,” the Court said. Inter alia, it directed the State Government to devise a blue print indicating: The policy to make available Corona treatment in private Nursing Homes; The plan regarding Plasma treatment;Detailed plan for systemic disposal of used masks. As of date, the state of Uttar Pradesh has 38130 confirmed Covid case and has recorded 955 deaths due to the infection. Keeping in view the worsening conditions, the state Government has decided to impose lockdowns on every weekend.
