Heather VanDeventer representan a la iglesia de Cristo en Alexandria en una protesta el 29 de enero frente a una casa donde el nacionalista blanco Richard Spencer se instaló recientemente .Foto de David Hoover.[Episcopal News Service] Una iglesia episcopal de Virginia se ha pronunciado contra la supremacía blanca luego que una figura emblemática de lo que se conoce como el movimiento “alt-right” se residenciara a pocas cuadras de la iglesia en el histórico barrió de “Pueblo viejo” [Old Town] de Alexandria.Miembros de la iglesia episcopal de Cristo en Alexandria [Christ Church Alexandria] se unieron a otras iglesias locales el mes pasado en una protesta pacífica frente al apartamento donde se reportó que Richard Spencer ha instalado un comercio, y se ha programado otra protesta para más adelante este mes.Entre tanto, la iglesia, que se encuentra en la zona suburbana de Washington, D.C., , emitió un comunicado la semana pasada en que dejaba claro que está contra la supremacía blanca y que apoya la inclusión, con lo cual se hace eco de declaraciones semejantes hechas por funcionarios municipales de Alexandria.“Nosotros, la junta parroquial de la iglesia de Cristo [en] Alexandria, reafirmamos por este medio nuestro pacto bautismal de respeto a la dignidad de todo ser humano”, dice el comunicado. “En convergencia con la Iglesia Episcopal en Estados Unidos, la Diócesis Episcopal de Virginia y la comunidad de la ciudad de Alexandria, rechazamos la supremacía blanca en todas sus formas. La supremacía blanca es un pecado y en antitética a las enseñanzas y ejemplo de Jesucristo. Continuaremos esforzándonos mediante nuestros ministerios y nuestro culto para amar a nuestros prójimos como a nosotros mismos”.El comunicado de la iglesia no especifica ninguna motivación ni menciona a Spencer por su nombre, pero la Rda. Noelle York-Simmons, rectora de la iglesia, confirmó la presencia de Spencer en su comunidad como parte del contexto en el cual se redactó el comunicado.“Decidimos que debíamos expresar lo que creemos teológicamente respecto a lo que somos y a quienes y cómo damos la bienvenida”, dijo ella, añadiendo que los puntos de vista de un supremacista blanco “no reflejan lo que muchos de nosotros creemos que son los valores norteamericanos”.Spencer ha sido descrito por el New York Times como un “líder nacionalista blanco que es figura relevante en el movimiento alt-right, el cual ha atraído a elementos supremacistas blancos, racistas y antiinmigrantes”. Su perfil se realzó después de la elección presidencial cuando él instó a un grupo de asistentes a una conferencia en Washington a que corearan “¡Hail Trump!”, lo cual suscitó titulares en todo el país por su semejanza con el saludo nazi.Él también provocó titulares por haber sido golpeado en la cara el día de la inauguración, un momento que fue captado en vídeo y luego ampliamente discutido y debatido.Su mudanza para Alexandria puede haber llamado menos la atención nacionalmente, pero ha sido un tema candente en la localidad. Al parecer  se reportó por primera vez en The Atlantic, que dijo el 12 de enero que Spencer estaba interesado en “establecer un centro de operaciones en el área de Washington”.Spencer y su compinche Jason Jorjani “conciben el espacio como una especie de híbrido de oficina y salón para el alt-right, un espacio privado donde la gente del movimiento pueden hacer vídeos, montar fiestas (hay un patio exterior) y trabajar en una página web naciente”. El artículo también destacaba que Spencer planeaba vivir en el último piso de la casa.La reacción de los nuevos vecinos de Spencer fue inmediata y decididamente negativa, según AlexandriaNews.org que reportó que la casa está a unas seis cuadras del ayuntamiento en la calle King, la principal arteria comercial del Old Town de Alexandria.En respuesta a llamadas a las oficinas municipales, el director de comunicaciones de Alexandria, Craig Fifer, publicó un comunicado en que decía: “No hay lugar para el odio y la intolerancia en Alexandria. El alcalde y el Concejo Municipal han reafirmado sistemáticamente que la diversidad y la inclusión son partes integrantes de nuestra comunidad”. Él citaba “declaración sobre la inclusión” de noviembre de 2016”  emitida por los líderes municipales.“El municipio no tiene autoridad para controlar a los propietarios o inquilinos de propiedades residenciales o comerciales que compran o alquilan espacio conforme a la ley” dijo Fifer a AlexandriaNews.org. “Pero en tanto defendemos el derecho de la Primera Enmienda a la libre expresión, no permitiremos acoso o delitos de odio en nuestra ciudad”.The Washington Post también informó de la reacción del barrio a la mudanza de Spencer, en una columna del 17 de enero titulado  “Para un barrio de Alexandria, el alt-right está del todo mal”, [For one Alexandria neighborhood, the ‘alt-right’ is all wrong]”“Yo creo que el primer paso es dar testimonio”, le dijo al Post  Dennis Maloney, un consultor vecino de Alexandria. “Tal vez se trate del sencillo expediente de que conseguir gente que se pare fuera del edificio con pancartas que digan: ‘No toleramos esto. No son bienvenidos’. No hay ninguna razón por la cual no podamos ejercer nuestra libertad de expresión. Eso podría invitarles a participar”.Aproximadamente unas 100 personas se reportó que se habían congregado para protestar el 29 de enero frente al edificio de la calle King. Esta planeada otra protesta para el 19 de febrero.La iglesia de Cristo fue una de las varias congregaciones en llevar a cabo ese plan, hacer una protesta pacífica frente al edificio el 29 de enero. David Hoover, uno de los organizadores de la protesta y miembro de la iglesia de Cristo, sostenía un cartel que decía: “Dios ama a todos”. Su marido, Bill Roberts, sostenía otro que decía: ¡El racismo afecta a todos!”.“Cuando los episcopales somos bautizados prometemos renunciar al poder del mal en la tierra”, dijo Hoover a AlexandriaNews.org. “Y la supremacía blanca corrompe a las criaturas de Dios. Es por eso que estamos aquí”.Los comerciantes vecinos también han puesto carteles en sus escaparates con mensajes que se oponen a la intolerancia, dijo York-Simmons, rectora de la iglesia de Cristo, y otra protesta ya se ha programado para el 19 de febrero.Sirve como un recordatorio a la comunidad, afirmó. “No hay lugar en nuestra ciudad para el discurso del odio”.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

The Contree experience room arises from the need of creating a sales space for a residential condominium project, it’s site being a priviledge location in the city of Medellín, Colombia, surrounded by forests and with beautiful views over the city. The requirement was also a space that could be easily disassembled and reused according to the client’s changing needings.

While the failed high-profile dot coms in the UK have collapsed suddenly, some of them failing to pay off or even tell staff, Charitableway’s behaviour seems quite different. Their chief executive Chris Montanos has opened into a dialogue with users and other non-profit staff via the ePhilanthropyFoundation’s e-mail discussion list. If future non-profit sector Internet start-ups fail, let’s hope they can match this level of professional and ethical respect for their former clients.

Fancy dress charity runners accused of ‘choking’ running events

first_imgFancy dress charity runners accused of ‘choking’ running events Dr Alan Buckingham, a lecturer in sociology at Bath Spa University College, has criticised running event organisers for allowing them to be dominated by fancy dress charity runners at the expense of serious runners.Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s the Today programme yesterday, two days before the London Marathon, Dr Buckingham said: “the sheer number of people running the London Marathon for charity are really crowding out the runners who want to run to run.”Dr Buckingham told The Bath Chronicle: “When I tell people that I’m running a marathon, they ask which charity I’m running for, as if running and charity are synonymous.” He compared the influence of charity participants in running to that in football: “Why don’t we have Michael Owen dressing up as an orange kicking a football around? You wouldn’t accept that, so why do we have to accept that in running?” Advertisement  14 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1center_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_img SHARE SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Jun 27, 2018 Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA Provides Funding for Three Indiana Projects to Improve Quality of Life Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development Anne Hazlett announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is investing $237 million in 119 rural community service facilities in 29 states.“At USDA, we believe in rural America and in the promise of small towns and the people who call them home,” Hazlett said. “Under Secretary Perdue’s leadership, we are committed to being a strong partner to local leaders in building healthy, prosperous futures for their communities.”USDA is supporting these quality-of-life projects through the Community Facilities Direct Loan Program. Three projects in Indiana have received funding.Pulaski County Memorial Hospital is receiving a $11,789,500 loan to allow for the demolition of two sections of existing health clinic facilities, construction of a 24,000-square-foot structure and parking lot, and to upgrade an existing medical office building and hospital including fire protection. The hospital is located in Winamac and serves several surrounding counties in and out of the state. Additional funding is a $1 million Rural Development loan guarantee.SMWC Real Estate Foundation, LLC is receiving a $13,897,000 loan to acquire the buildings and land that are currently owned by Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College. The acquisition will allow the college to improve cash flow and to focus plans to grow and to upgrade buildings and facilities. The investment will also assist SMWC to purchase additional land for future housing growth. The school expects to expand its enrollment. This investment will lead to continued economic opportunities in the Saint Mary-of-the-Woods and West Terre Haute areas; while saving jobs for the college. Additional funding is a $1 million Rural Development loan guarantee.Vermillion Parke Community Health Center is receiving a $2,931,000 loan to enlarge the Valley Professionals Community Health Center in Clinton.

There are no federally qualified health centers or rural health clinics located in the service area. The project will enlarge the clinic by more than 15,000 square feet and will provide additional space for behavioral health group therapy. An additional 8,500 patients will be served, resulting in 21,000 additional visits. Parke County has the second highest suicide rate in Indiana, with a reported suicide rate of 20.6 percent. Vermillion County has a reported suicide rate of 15.7 percent. Both rates are higher than the state average of 14.2 percent. A behavioral healthcare treatment team will provide a full spectrum of behavioral health services to patients. The Health Resources and Services Administration is providing a $1 million grant for this project.The projects that are being announced today will help improve the quality of life in rural communities in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.More than 100 types of projects are eligible for USDA Community Facilities funding. Eligible applicants include municipalities, public bodies, nonprofit organizations and federally and state-recognized Native American tribes. Applicants and projects must be in rural areas with a population of 20,000 or less. There is no limit on the size of the loans. Loan amounts have ranged from $10,000 to $165 million.The 2018 Omnibus bill increased the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 budget for the Community Facilities Direct Loan program to $2.8 billion, up $200 million from FY 2017.USDA Rural Development provides loans and grants to help expand economic opportunities and create jobs in rural areas.

Imprisoned “freedom lawyer” Mohammed Abbou begins hunger strike

first_img December 26, 2019 Find out more TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa News Reporters Without Borders called for the immediate release of Tunisian lawyer Mohammed Abbou today after Abbou, who has been in prison since 1 March for daring to express his views online, yesterday announced that he had just begun another hunger strike.”It is absolutely unacceptable that going on hunger strike has become the only option left to Abbou,” the press freedom said in a message to Tunisian President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali, adding that it was “outraged” that the president chose to pardon common criminals instead of Abbou for the national holiday.Abbou said he began the hunger strike with the intention of pursuing it for several days “in order to inform national and international public opinion (…) and draw attention to what is happing in my country as regards the repression against all those who voice their dissent.”He said he also wanted to draw attention to “the hatred and complete intolerance towards all those who dare, even if only implicitly, to expose and criticise the ‘mafia families’ who are destroying the Tunisian economy and endangering the safety of all Tunisians.” His wife also began a hunger strike yesterday in solidarity.Abbou is serving a total of three and a half years in prison terms that were imposed at a trial on 29 April which Reporters Without Borders denounced at the time as a sham. The sentences were upheld on appeal on 10 June.He was given two years for a supposed physical attack on a woman lawyer at a conference in 2002, although no evidence was presented for the attack apart from an unsigned medical certificate. And he was given a year and a half for an article posted on the Tunisnews website in August last year that compared the torture of political prisoners in Tunisia to that perpetrated by US soldiers at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. But many observers believed he was in fact being punished for another article posted a few days before his arrest which criticised an invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to attend the UN-sponsored World Summit on the Information Society in Tunis in November, and which commented ironically about corruption within President Ben Ali’s family.

PWP customers were the beneficiaries of these actions, which also included the suspension of utility service shut-offs as a consequence for nonpayment of power and water bills.The city was hoping to receive some federal or state assistance to directly reimburse water or power utilities, but no proposal to this effect has been included in COVID-19 stimulus funding.At the same time, while the suspension of late fees and utility shut-offs provided a temporary measure of relief, it does not relieve customers of their obligation to pay utility bills, PWP said last month.“Since the end of March 2020, the amount of unpaid utility bills has increased from about $1.3 million to over $8.4 million as of March 31, 2021,” PWP said. “These arrears are over five times higher than that was experienced in pre-pandemic times and are still increasing considerably.”The Finance Department said approval of the recommendation to reinstate late fees and penalties would maintain a balanced operating budget for fiscal year 2022 without the need to draw upon reserves. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimescenter_img Community News CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community News City Council Reinstates Late Fees Waived During COVID-19 Pandemic STAFF REPORT Published on Monday, May 10, 2021 | 5:28 pm HerbeautyInstall These Measures To Keep Your Household Safe From Covid19HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyTop Important Things You Never Knew About MicrobladingHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?
