Our behavior mocks the gospel. The only person who wins is the last one any of us wants to win. Bruce Green says: November 1, 2012 at 9:20 pm I find myself asking a strange question: Can one be reconciled with someone who has no interest in being reconciled? Do these bishops want to be reconciled? This reminds me of some horrible marriage counseling sessions when one of the parties has already gotten a lawyer. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Albany, NY Daniel Berry, NYC says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC October 26, 2012 at 5:32 pm Actually, “expressing personal opinion on an issue” is exactly what this is not. In both complaints, the bishops charged entered into legal action against those in the Episcopal Church. When they were merely expressing their opinions–as they have done, for years–they were within their rights. For any bishop to participate in legal action against the church violates their ordination vows and cannot go unchallenged. October 26, 2012 at 5:03 pm The Presiding Bishop did what she is supposed to do…uphold the Canons of the Church.

As a lay person who lost her home parish near four years ago due to greed of dissidents, I would expect all bishops to either uphold the Constitution and Canons of The Episcopal Church or to quietly depart – without attempting to take the property – as did Jeffrey N.

Those three hundred are .01 % of the total members of the Diocese of SC. What does that percentage tell you about Bishop Lawrence? It tells me that 99.99 percent of the Diocese of SC supports Bishop Lawrence. I would say that one tenth of one percent does not constitute a diocese that is unhappy with their Bishop, but the exact opposite. Tom Downs says: October 26, 2012 at 4:33 pm Ms. Anderson, your pain speaks to the unnecessary collateral damage caused by this entire process. While I’m sorry for your pain, I note that the Episcopal Church has, in large measure, left the so-called “dissidents” rather than the other way around, and the “greed” you mention isn’t limited to the “dissidents”.If over 90% of a parish votes to leave, being forced to leave the property and endowments behind is a hardship to them, as well as to the remnant who are forced to maintain buildings and ministries beyond the capability of the smaller group – in both cases working against the ability to continue and grow the ministries which are the reason for the Church in the first place. While there have been exceptions in which the remnant grew sufficiently to stay viable, this is far from universal.The Presbyterian Church USA is taking a more enlightened and conciliatory approach, working toward offering conservative congregations the opportunity to leave PCUSA and join other Presbyterian denominations more in line with their theology, and doing so in a structured way, “decently and in order”. Perhaps it’s time for ECUSA to evaluate this possibility. October 27, 2012 at 1:10 am Tom Downs, “discipline” most certainly includes obedience to canon law, but you will search the canons in vain to find any provision that allows the Presiding Bishop, or anyone else in the Church, to speak by themselves what you call “the official legal position of this church” in secular courts. General Convention has no authority to interpret the Constitution and Canons, and the Presiding Bishop has still less. Moreover, Canon IV.19.2 prohibits any member of the Church, “whether lay or ordained,” from seeking “to have the Constitution and Canons of the Church interpreted by a secular court,” or to “resort to a secular court to address a dispute arising under the Constituttion and Canons …”.So why does the Presiding Bishop get to speak her views of the Constitution and Canons in court, but not other bishops in the Church? The truth is that the Presiding Bishop is making up that so-called “official position” out of whole cloth, and is letting her own personal Chancellor run wild with litigation — all to his personal benefit.This is a disgrace which would not be tolerated in any public corporation or charity — so why should we Episcopalians accept it in our own Church? Reference panel recommends conciliation with 9 bishops Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Submit a Job Listing October 26, 2012 at 4:24 pm The ordinary for a Bishop includes faithfulness to the discipline and doctrine of the Church but does NOT include unconditional acquiescence to the Presiding Bishop, who is merely primus inter pares (if even that).These Bishops are under fire for expressing personal opinion on an issue before civil courts – where the Bible says disputes between Christians should NEVER have been taken in the first place. Daniel Berry, NYC says: Rector Belleville, IL Moputo Jones says: [Episcopal News Service] An Episcopal Church reference panel has apparently recommended seeking “conciliation” with nine bishops (five active and four retired) after two complaints were filed earlier this year about their involvement in property litigation in two dioceses.According to information circulating on some blogs, the reference panel unanimously decided that the complaints would proceed with conciliation pursuant to Canon IV.10 of the Episcopal Church’s Constitution and Canons.Conciliation, according to the canon, calls for seeking a resolution “which promotes healing, repentance, forgiveness, restitution, justice, amendment of life and reconciliation among the complainant, respondent, affected community, other persons and the church.”A conciliator will be appointed to assist in the process towards reconciliation. That person, according to the canon, should be skilled in dispute resolution techniques and without conflict of interest in the matter.“If conciliation cannot be achieved within a reasonable time, the matter will be referred back to the reference panel,” the canon states.Episcopal Church Public Affairs Officer Neva Rae Fox told ENS that the information about the reference panel’s recommendation is based on private letters that Bishop Clay Matthews, who heads the church’s Office of Pastoral Development, sent to the nine bishops.“As with similar letters, they are considered private and, therefore, we will not be making them public,” she said.Matthews also serves as the “intake officer,” the person designated to receive complaints alleging offense and refer them for further action or investigation if necessary. Matthews was appointed to that role by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori.The complaints against the nine bishops surfaced in June.In one instance, the complaint concerns the fact that seven bishops endorsed an amicus curiae or “friend of the court” brief prepared by the Anglican Communion Institute, Inc. in the pending appeal of a court ruling involving the Diocese of Fort Worth and the bishop, clergy and laity who broke away from that diocese in November 2008.The brief objects to the trial court’s ruling that told the dissidents to return “all property, as well as control of the diocesan corporation” to the Episcopal leaders of the diocese.Those named in the Fort Worth complaint are retired Diocese of Texas Bishop Maurice M. Benitez, retired Diocese of Central Florida Bishop John W. Howe, Diocese of Dallas Bishop Suffragan Paul E. Lambert, Diocese of Albany Bishop William H. Love, Diocese of Western Louisiana Bishop D. Bruce MacPherson, Diocese of Springfield Bishop Daniel H. Martins, and Diocese of Dallas Bishop James M. Stanton.MacPherson is also named in the other complaint, along with retired Diocese of South Carolina Bishop Edward L. Salmon, Jr. and retired Diocese of Springfield Bishop Peter H. Beckwith. Matthews e-mailed them to say that a complaint has been received against them because they signed affidavits opposing to a motion for summary judgment made by representatives of the Diocese of Quincy and the Episcopal Church in the fall of 2011 to secure diocesan financial assets from a group that broke from the diocese in November 2008.The motion for summary judgment in that case was rejected in December 2011 and the case is due to go to trial in April 2013.As per canons, the reference panel is composed of the intake officer, the presiding bishop and the president of the Disciplinary Board of the House of Bishops (IV.2). The reference panel is charged with the duty of reviewing information to determine how to refer the matter (IV. 6.sec. (8)). The referral options are (a) no action is required other than appropriate pastoral response pursuant to Canon IV.8; (b) conciliation pursuant to IV.10; (c) investigation pursuant to IV.11; or referral for possible agreement regarding terms of discipline pursuant to IV.9.

Things don’t shake down in quite that way in the polity of TEC. thomas mauro says: Featured Jobs & Calls Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Washington, DC An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET November 13, 2012 at 11:46 pm Colossians 2:6-10 (ESV) Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.Father in heaven, We give You thanks that Christ transcends all dimensions and realms, seen and unseen. We pray that each of the ten bishops found guilty by TEC’s disciplinary apparatus will walk in Jesus, rooted and built up in Him. Christ Jesus is the head of all rule and authority, all principality and power. At the name of Jesus, every principality, power, ruler of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places must bow its knee. Christ before the bishops, Christ behind them, Christ to their right, Christ to their left, Christ above them, and Christ beneath them. Christ over their time. Christ! Christ! Christ for Mark, Peter, Maurice, John, Paul, William, Bruce, Daniel, Edward, and James. Amen. October 26, 2012 at 10:03 pm This has nothing to do with Bishop Lawrence. However, making a disciplinary matter out of a difference of opinion about legal matters–however wrong they may be– is ridiculous. I doubt seriously that ordination deprives one of their First Amendment rights to express their opinions about matters in the secular courts. These complaints should have been dismissed on their face. And that is true even though ECUSA and the respective dioceses should win the cases in question.last_img read more

You all have such dangerous jobs, OMG, but you all handled it, and got him off the street and in jail fast! Great job! One less bad character to worry about around here.

It’s the perps who do the crimes but notice where these robberies and carjackings happen. If you look on a recent burglary map it’s the area surrounding 441/sheeler road. Rundown places tend to attract crime. The Discount Liquor store/bar., bravo, save a lot, and big lots shopping plazas are gross and so outdated. It makes me ashamed to live near them. The Apopka Police Department responded to a carjacking call on Orange Blossom Trail yesterday. By its conclusion, it involved over a dozen APD officers including a Captain, a fleeing suspect firing a shot at officers, members of the APD drawing weapons, pursuit of a dangerous suspect both in vehicles and on foot, and the apprehension and arrest of the suspect.It was quite a dramatic event, but the truly remarkable takeaway from this incident was the length of time it took from the time of the call until the arrest.Jeremiah JohnsonAccording to APD reports, it all began around 1:30 yesterday afternoon…Kenneth Franklin and James Matesevac were standing outside of the Surplus Warehouse on South Orange Blossom Trail. Franklin sat down in his Silver Toyota Camry and started the engine when suddenly a man wearing a mask and carrying a pistol approached them. He ordered Franklin out of the car and Matesevac to back up. Both men complied with the order and the masked gunman entered the vehicle. In his haste, he struck a concrete pole before he fled the scene.Three minutes after the call, APD officers responded.In route, Corporal Reagan Rizo observed the vehicle less than a half-mile from the scene at Alabama and 6th Street being driven by a black male with a white T-shirt over his head as he passed. Rizo attempted to stop the vehicle, which fled at a high rate of speed. Rizo gave pursuit, but terminated it a short time later due to the reckless nature of the suspect’s driving.APD K-9 Officer Paul Rehn was in the area of the vehicle pursuit, and was advised by a person on the roadway that the vehicle was seen in the area of the Bike Trail and 13th Street. Quickly thereafter the Florida Highway Patrol advised another officer that the vehicle was observed going west on Cleveland Street. Multiple units arrived in the area. APD officers located the vehicle abandoned in the wood line of 1900 S. Hawthorne Ave.The vehicle was unoccupied, and a perimeter was quickly established around the woods where the vehicle was located.APD Sergeant Kim Walsh, assisted in setting up the perimeter and observed the subject continuing east across Long Lane pushing a child’s bike with training wheels. She noticed he was breathing hard and sweating profusely. He glanced at her patrol vehicle and looked away continuing to walk away. Walsh exited her vehicle and called out for him to stop. He continued walking away pushing the bike. She told him to stop again. Instead, the suspect threw the bike to the ground and ran through a side yard on Long Lane. Walsh pursued him on foot. During this time a home owner on Long Lane came out of a house and told Walsh ‘He ran through the back yard and jumped over the chain link fence! He fell!’Walsh lost sight of the subject, but continued through the open yard advising other units on her radio of the continued flight and direction of the suspect.After shaking Walsh, the suspect continued east and crossed South Washington Avenue in front of APD Captain Randall Fernandez’s vehicle. Fernandez exited his unmarked patrol car and pursued the subject on foot. During this time Rehn was approaching in his marked patrol vehicle. While the subject was fleeing he fired a round from his handgun.Fernandez got behind Rehn’s vehicle as Rehn continued to chase the subject. The subject then turned back towards Rehn’s vehicle, pointed the handgun at Rehn and Fernandez, and then fled into a woodline.Rehn stopped his patrol vehicle and exited it with his K-9. Both Fernandez and Rehn had drawn their weapons before pursuing with the aide of Rehn’s K-9 officer.  Moments later the suspect was taken into custody by Lt. Kennedy.Before 2:00 PM, the suspect had been arrested. The entire incident officially took 24 minutes according to APD reports. Fernandez praised the APD for its performance under dangerous conditions.“The response time shows tremendous teamwork,” said Fernandez.”We like to serve the citizens of Apopka and be responsive when it comes to taking a bad guy off the streets.”Fernandez is one of three captains at the APD, which makes them effectively second-in-command. So what is a high-ranking officer doing in the middle of a dangerous pursuit call?“When a big call comes in, we all answer it,” said Fernandez. “I happened to be at the right place at the right time. We all have our roles, but we are all police officers. We’re all cops at heart.”Once at the Apopka Police Department, the subject was identified as Jeremiah Johnson, 23 of Apopka. He is being charged with Armed Carjacking, three counts of Aggravated Assault with a firearm, Attempted Murder of a Law Enforcement Officer and Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding.Johnson is currently in the Orange County Jail.

AD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & Greene

first_imgArchDaily Projects Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses AD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & Greene Year:  “COPY” Copy+ 17Houses•Pasadena, United States United Statescenter_img Architects: Greene & Greene Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” 1908 Photographs:  Alexander Vertikoff, Mark FiennesText description provided by the architects. The essential nature of architecture by Greene & Greene begins with intense attention to detail and craftsmanship, as their bungalows mark the height of the American Arts and Crafts style. The brothers were inspired by the concept of total design, or gesamtkunstwerk, which was stressed in the German-designed rooms at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase International Exposition in St. Louis. When they met David and Mary Gamble, they already had developed a list of rich couples who commissioned them to design their houses, with generous budgets and relatively free reign.Save this picture!© Alexander Vertikoff”An architect is a builder employing the process of art,” Charles Greene once wrote. This is proven to be their governing belief, not only in the final product but also throughout the process. The brothers were known to veer from the initial blueprints, showing that they were enthralled with transition and process, the blueprints as a point of departure rather than a set of instructions.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffThe drawings of the house were completed in February of 1908, the site ground-broken in March, and ten months later the house was completed and the first custom-built piece of furniture delivered. The family moved in immediately, and the house and all of it’s specially-designed furnishings were officially finished in 1910.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffThe early projects of Greene and Greene reflected the traditional tastes of their clients, but in time they achieved recognition for developing the California bungalow to a high art, as well as for creating houses with the quality of fine furniture. The Gamble House represented an American-style which sat amidst an abundance of imitations and interpretations of classical European buildings, the influence for many mansions at the time. It was designed to be very suitable for the southern California climate, with a sleeping porch and beautiful transition spaces from the inside to outdoor patios, a garden and a pond.Save this picture!Courtesy of Tim Street-PorterThe developed style of Greene and Greene is very distinguishable in the design world, as their Japanese inspirations are incorporated into stain glass windows, details carved and formed with wood, joinery and joint pieces traditional to architecture in Japan. The emphasis on the horizontal line, the use of modular units, a taste for the asymmetrical, the absence of clutter, extensive areas of unpainted wood, a preponderance of natural and subdued colors, a close relationship with the outdoors were all key elements of Japanese architecture that are incorporated into the Craftsman style.Save this picture!Courtesy of Tim Street-PorterThe strong ties to the outdoors are brought to the interior as well, through flowers and trees which are engraved in the windows, doors and lanterns. Indigenous Japanese shapes appear throughout the house, in the contour of the dining room table, the cloud lift in the transom bar of each window, the recessed handles on drawers and the ebony frame of the master bedroom furniture.Save this picture!© Mark FiennesThere are also European inspired aspects to the design; the cantilevered second story over the front terrace, window boxes and shingles on exterior walls, the long roof lines and Swiss-like exterior elevation south of the front door, the living room inglenook, and the Gothic fireplace in the den.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffThe original patrons lived in the house until death, and it was continually passed down through the Gamble family until 1966, when it was almost sold to a family who intended to paint the interior teak and mahogany woodwork white. They immediately realized the artistic and architectural importance of this home and deeded it to the city of Pasadena in a joint agreement with the University of Southern California Department of Architecture. Tours are offered now, as the Gamble House is both a museum and a National Historic Landmark.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffProject gallerySee allShow lessWestern Red Cedar Architectural Design Awards WinnersArticlesThe Atmosphere of Paris Cafes / Nicolas Dorval-Bory + Raphaël BétillonArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffWritten by Megan Sveiven Share AD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & GreeneSave this projectSaveAD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & Greene CopyAbout this officeGreene & GreeneOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsArchitecture ClassicsResidential ArchitectureHousesPasadenaHousesUnited StatesPublished on November 24, 2010Cite: Megan Sveiven. “AD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & Greene” 24 Nov 2010.

Demonstrators support ICE hunger strikers in Batavia, N.Y.

first_imgIn November 2020, immigrants imprisoned at Bergen County Jail in New Jersey began a hunger strike to protest the filthy and inhumane conditions they were being housed in. Prisoners were experiencing a denial of access to water, medical care, heat and cleaning supplies. The facility had a rodent infestation that prisoners were forced to live with. And staff at the facility had blocked windows, limiting fresh air flow. The Bergen County Jail is used by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to incarcerate arrested immigrants.Demonstrators support ICE hunger strikers in Batavia, N.Y.       WW PHOTO: Arjae RedSupport for the hunger strike grew in and around Bergen County, with a call for the release of prisoners. In retaliation for this solidarity, prison authorities split up the hunger strikers and transferred some to other prisons.Rather than stopping the hunger strike, these transfers caused it to spread to the Essex County and Hudson County, N.J., and Batavia, N.Y., ICE facilities. Hunger strikers transferred to Batavia were forced into solitary confinement. Although some prisoners have decided to end the strike, many still persist as support for the prisoners grows and reaches across multiple states.The transfer of prisoners to break up the strike not only damages the mental and social health of the prisoners, but also facilitates the spread of COVID-19 from prison to prison and into the surrounding communities. The virus hits prisoners particularly brutally, because of the lack of sanitary equipment, the unclean environment and overcrowding.In upstate New York, two protests were held by Justice for Migrant Families, Rochester Rapid Response Network and Abolish ICE NY-NJ and were attended by members of Workers World Party-Buffalo. On Jan. 14, demonstrators gathered outside the Buffalo ICE field office, raised the demands of the strikers and played the voices of the imprisoned over a loudspeaker.On Jan. 19, another demonstration was held at the ICE facility in Batavia, N.Y. Protesters from Buffalo, Rochester and surrounding areas gathered to demand the release of the hunger strikers, abolition of ICE and a closure of the immigrant camps.Kawiye Jumale, local immigrant activist and member of the Somali Bantu community — whose own brother was locked in the Batavia ICE facility — spoke out about the injustices of the U.S. government against immigrants and refugees: “We came here thinking that we were gonna have a chance at the ‘American Dream.’ . . . There ain’t no such thing as the ‘American Dream!’ We came here, and we are in the same oppressive environment.

first_img Paris, 17 October 2002 Help by sharing this information Reports News BrazilAmericas RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America RSF_en Dear Candidates,Ten days before the second round of the presidential elections, Reporters Without Borders calls on both of you to give an undertaking to fight against the impunity enjoyed by those who kill journalists in Brazil. Our organisation urges you to undertake, if elected, to do everything possible to ensure that proposed constitutional amendment No. 29/2000, concerning judicial reform, is adopted as soon as possible. This includes a proposal to put the federal judicial authorities in charge of prosecuting all serious human rights crimes and violations including the murders of journalists, and would allow the federal police to investigate these cases. Passed on its first reading by deputies in Brasilia, this reform must now be approved by the senate.Reporters Without Borders believes that such a transfer of authority to the federal police, known to be better equipped and less tied to local political interests, could alone constitute an effective measure to combat impunity.Most of the murders of journalists have occurred in the provinces where local caciques do not always tolerate the countervailing power of the press, so this struggle against impunity would constitute a commitment on your part to consolidate local democracy, still fragile in many regions of Brazil.Fifteen journalists have been killed in Brazil since 1991. Most of them worked for small publications or provincial radio stations, and paid with their lives for their reports on the misdoings of local politicians or local police abuses. Although investigations have been carried out, almost all these murders ended up being unpunished.It is this impunity that has led Reporters Without Borders to question the way judicial authority is organised in Brazil, a federation of states. Under this federal system, the murder of a journalist falls exclusively within the competence of the state judiciary, which is more susceptible to local pressure, and the civilian police, which is controlled by local elected officials.On 3 October, our organisation published a report pointing out serious irregularities in the investigation into the murder of Manuel Leal de Oliveira, editor of A Região, a weekly published in Itabuna (Bahia). Leal was killed on 14 January 1998 after criticising Itabuna mayor Fernando Gomes, an ally of former state governor Antonio Carlos Magalhães, who heads the right-wing Liberal Front Party (PFL).In our view, the Leal case highlights the limits of a system which puts a local police force controlled by local elected officials, in this case the state of Bahia civilian police, in charge of investigating the murder of a journalist who had criticised one of these local elected officials.The two murders of journalists that have taken place in 2002 sadly confirm our analysis. In the murder of Tim Lopes, a TV Globo journalist who was killed by drug dealers on 2 June, the arrest of the presumed perpetrators was delayed because of the complicity they enjoyed within the state police force, which was in charge of the investigation.In the 30 September murder of journalist Sávio Brandão, the main suspect is Hercules Araújo Agostinho, a corporal in the military police, which is also under the control of local authorities. Following this murder, it emerged that Araújo Agostinho is suspected in the killings of 11 other persons during the past six years and that he was never detained because of the protection he apparently received from some of his superiors. The owner of the Folha do Estado, a daily published in the state of Mato Grosso, Brandão was killed after publishing reports on the spread of organised crime in region.Our organisation looks forward to responses from you, the candidates, before 26 October and we undertake to publish your responses as soon as they are received.Sincerely,Robert MénardSecretary-GeneralRead the report on the murder of Manuel Leal de Oliveira BrazilAmericas 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies to go further April 15, 2021 Find out morecenter_img May 13, 2021 Find out more October 17, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter to the two candidates in the second round of the presidential elections Organisation Receive email alerts April 27, 2021 Find out more In an open letter to the two candidates, Reporters Without Borders calls on them to pledge to combat the impunity enjoyed by those who murder journalists.

We also call on the government to make an effort to be transparent and facilitate reporting during the elections.”The two organizations added: “We also urge information minister Kannarith Khieu to rescind his ban on publishing opinion polls in the five days before the elections, which has no legal basis, and to explain an order forbidding radios to ‘broadcast information about the activities of foreigners based in Cambodia in support of or opposition to any political party or individual’.”On 24 June, Reporters Without Borders submitted a contribution on Cambodia to the United Nations Human Rights Council, which will examine the situation in Cambodia during the Universal Periodic Review’s 18th session, next January and February.The Reporters Without Borders contribution voices concern about the lack of media independence and restrictions on access to information, which limit transparency during elections, as it did, for example, in the 2012 commune elections (see the Reporters Without Borders contribution below).On the pretext of safeguarding neutrality, the information ministry issued a directive on 25 June banning local radio stations from retransmitting the Khmer-language programmes of foreign radio stations during the campaign.The directive was rescinded five days later, following protests by the foreign broadcasters affected, such as the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), the agency that oversees Radio Free Asia, and the US State Department, which described the move as a “serious violation of media freedom.”With an eye on the 28 July elections, Reporters Without Borders urges politicians, government officials and other authorities to:- Implement the recommendations that Cambodia accepted at the end of the 2009 Human Rights Council session.- Draft laws on access to information and freedom of information in consultation with civil society, in order to improve media transparency and professionalism.- End impunity for physical attacks against journalists and other media personnel and set up a commission to identify those responsible for journalist Heng Serei Oudom’s murder in 2012 and other cases of violence.- Lift the restrictions on radio and TV broadcasting and reform the frequency allocation process so that independent and community broadcasters can operate.- Publish the draft cyber-crime law and allow civil society to suggest changes to the draft.- Repeal the law criminalizing denial of the Khmer genocide.Cambodia is ranked 143rd out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Read the Reporters Without Borders contribution on Cambodia to the Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review: News Google experiments drop Australian media from search results December 28, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information News February 24, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Murphy rallies support for AAA in Limerick

He also hailed the huge turnout and reception Paul received as “a sign that the people of Limerick stand shoulder to shoulder with Jobstown and against political policing”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up During his visit Murphy spoke about the Jobstown arrests, the future for the anti water charges movement and the need for a strong anti-austerity political alternative. “Imagine, for a second, if rather than being the Irish State arresting opposition members of parliament and protesters, this was instead taking place in Greece, under the Syriza government. Police being sent on dawn raids into a community every morning to arrest teenagers, teachers, councillors and TDs for their involvement in a sit down protest,” said Deputy Murphy.“The papers would be full of news of it, and editorials decrying it as an attack on democracy. This is part of a concerted effort to try to discredit and criminalise the water charges movement, and the AAA in particular, in the eyes of ordinary people,” he claimed.“This is a sign that we have them worried. They are scared of the AAA. They know we are not like the others. We don’t simply talk the talk, we walk the walk. The establishment are used to parties speaking out against the rule of the one per cent, but then going along, abiding by their rules and forming some rotten coalition. They know we will not do that, instead we will fight tooth and nail for the 99 per cent – and that scares them.”Deputy Murphy also appealed for people who support the ideals of the AAA to get involved. “Now is not the time for staying on the sidelines. We need people to get active, get involved, and help us to build a major political alternative. We have to think big. Here in Limerick, ye need to be making plans to ensure that the AAA win a Dail seat here in the next election. That requires a lot of work, but I believe it can be done. Right across the country, we need anti-water charge groups standing candidates, and building a principled anti austerity alternative. We need people to get involved with us in building that alternative,” he concluded.center_img Linkedin WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Print Facebook WhatsApp Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Advertisementlast_img read more

How COVID-19 Is Driving Migration Trends

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: The Industry Pulse: Changes at Five Star, ATTOM, Home Point Next: Lowest Unemployment Rate in Months, Continuing Gradual Recovery According to a recent report published by, Americans are on the move amid the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. The website’s report lays out which locations are seeing inbound migration as Americans put down new roots.It is no surprise that the arrival of COVID-19 has put a pinch on many Americans’ wallets, as well as being a catalyst for moves driven by health or economic realities. The report reveals that 15% of all moves occurring between the months of January and June of this year were directly attributed to pandemic-related pressures.Among these findings, 37% of movers were recorded as taking the plunge due to the fact that they simply could not afford to remain living in their current abodes. Regarding the areas that experienced the most migration (the most residents who chose to move to other locales), the previously trendy and popular enclaves of San Francisco and New York were among the top. Specifically, each of these metros saw 80% more people moving away than relocating to them.On the opposite end of the spectrum, the city that saw the most new residents to arrive and put down new roots within it was Scottsdale, Arizona. It was recorded that an impressive 68% more people moved to the area versus moved away.The report also studied the numbers broken down by states, with the title for top destination (according to the number of overall move-ins ) being sunny Florida and Nebraska. A noteworthy factor that most likely contributed to Nebraska’s specific draw was the fact that it is one of the few states that did not issue a statewide stay-at-home order. A final state that drew Americans to it was Idaho, which reported a staggering 194% more people moving into it versus moving out.Safety was a primary factor cited by the survey, unsurprisingly. A third of those surveyed said they had moved to shelter in place with loved ones, while 24% reported that they did not feel safe in their home prior to the move. Twenty-three percent said they were moving to a destination with fewer COVID cases.As for the study’s methodology, the report explains that “HireAHelper examined the origin, destination, and distance of each moving job since the official declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic on March 11, 2020. The study also compares year-over-year moving activity between 2020 and 2019 covering the period of March 11 to June 30. Additional data sources include PEW Research and a HireAHelper user survey carried out in July 2020.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago August 13, 2020 1,580 Views COVID-19 relocating 2020-08-13 Christina Hughes Babb Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Andy Beth Miller Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Andy Beth Miller is an experienced freelance editor and writer.
