South Carolina bishops join ecumenical letter to lawmakers urging action…

first_img Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Washington, DC Course Director Jerusalem, Israel [Episcopal News Service] The bishops of the two Episcopal dioceses in South Carolina have joined four of their counterparts from other Christian churches in signing a letter to the state’s General Assembly urging lawmakers to join with the educators, advocates and the faith community in working to improve public education.“Inequity in education delivery in our state cannot be remedied by the Legislature alone,” the bishops say in their letter, released this week. “The Courts cannot correct this injustice alone. Only together can we make a difference for the children of South Carolina.”Diocese of Upper South Carolina Bishop Andrew Waldo, left, speaks Jan. 17 about an education initiative involving several Christian denominations in the state. Waldo was part of a panel discussion during the All Our Children conference held at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Columbia, South Carolina. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceBishop Andrew Waldo of the Diocese of Upper South Carolina and Bishop Skip Adams of the Episcopal Church in South Carolina have been working on the issue of education equity with other Christian churches in the state since 2014, when they formed the Bishops’ Public Education Initiative. The initiative aims to encourage church-school partnerships while providing a collective voice to speak out for public policy changes to benefit all children, regardless of race or economic status.Waldo and Adams were joined in signing the recent letter to the General Assembly by bishops from the state’s Lutheran, Roman Catholic, United Methodist and Christian Methodist Episcopal churches.The letter references the bishops’ initial 2014 “Statement on Public Education” and it comes two months after the South Carolina Supreme Court said it was up to lawmakers, not the courts, to set education funding levels, despite evidence that the state had failed to ensure students in 30 or more poor school districts were receiving “minimally adequate education.”The court’s November ruling essentially reversed its own 2014 ruling that ordered the General Assembly to develop a plan for fulfilling the state’s obligation to all its students.The bishops’ new statement on the issue comes a week after the Episcopal Church helped convene a conference in South Carolina on education equity through the All Our Children network. The conference, held Jan. 16-18 at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Columbia, drew more than 100 educators, advocates and church leaders from multiple denominations. Some of them cited the court decision as a call to action, as did the bishops in their letter this week.“In light of the recent Supreme Court decision to end oversight of progress made, especially in rural schools, we renew our call to people of faith to join us in support of flourishing education for all children,” the bishops’ letter reads. “It is now time for us to act where progress is on hold or stalled.”The bishops reaffirmed their commitment to South Carolina’s children, including through tutoring and mentoring programs, and they pledged to support efforts to bring more qualified teachers to the state’s classrooms, including through better pay. The letter also emphasizes the need to address the “uneven” availability of technology from district to district.“We commend those who work across district lines to collaborate and consolidate resources,” the letter concludes. “We stand ready to encourage these efforts in any way possible. We know this work will require all of us. We are here to work with you. We are calling on you to give this issue your greatest attention. We invite you to call on us.”Read the full letter here.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The All Blacks win the series with convincing victory over France

first_imgSunday Jun 16, 2013 The All Blacks win the series with convincing victory over France The All Blacks kept France tryless as they sealed the Test series with an emphatic 30-0 victory in Christchurch on Saturday. It was the All Blacks’ 500th Test, and skipper Kieran Read’s 50th, leading to a special night for the 21 000 fans in attendance. The home side scored three tries as they claimed the Dave Gallaher Cup with one match to go in the series. It’s the first time they’ve ever kept France scoreless, so it was a deeply satisfying performance for coach Steve Hansen. “It was a performance that we expected. We felt at training we’d gone up about nine or 10 cogs. The accuracy was there, the sharpness was there and that’s just spending time together.”Flyhalf Aaron Cruden kicked 15 points while great tries were scored by Julian Savea, Ben Smith and Beauden Barrett. The last time France were kept scoreless was a 21-0 loss to Scotland in 1990.“It was a great standard for us to set,” said skipper Kieran Read. “Defence really shows the character of a side and your willingness to put your body on the line for each other.“We really stuck at it when they brought it to us around the rucks. We’ve got to build from that. It was certainly a great effort. It’s awesome to put in that effort and then get the reward at the end.”The two sides meet again next weekend in New Plymouth, where France will want to make things right, while the All Blacks will no doubt be looking for a clean sweep and win the series 3-0.Highlights and clips from the other games will be archived and shared soonADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks , Midyear Tours Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

The project consists of 736 housing units organized in six 5-story blocks with interior courtyards in a former industrial site of 16,000 sq. meters in Iztacalco, a poor borough in the Federal District, less than a quarter of a mile from both a Metrobus (BRT system) and a subway station.

Save this picture!© Rafael GamoBy incorporating mid-rise/high-density (500 units per hectare), mixed use (retail on the ground floor of one of the blocks) and semi-public spaces like the courtyards in each block as well as ‘hiding’ the cars in a basement, the project offers a real alternative for social housing ‘inside the city’ and close to public transportation.

It may have become fewer these days, but many people still have experiences of eating or relaxing with families beneath a tree, or climbing trees to find their own space to play. It is just a metaphor, but the desirable place for a family to gather and spend time may be somewhere like beneath a tree, laid-back, with moderate sunshine and comfortable breeze. Save this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesTo create your own space around the trunk, keeping the distance and each doing one’s own thing, seems to be more contemporary and realistic than a decade-ago concept of a living room where a whole family members spend time together watching TV. To have a space surrounding the trunk means, putting it the other way around, to have something to block the view in the center of a space. Your view may be blocked, but the distance from the center or relationship between positions will be clearer than one-room space with an overall view. That means your own position becomes clearer. The circulatory nature of the space would also enable to amplify the distance within a room without being restricted by dimension lines on the plan. Save this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesThe space inside a tree is a special one for children. They don’t mind it being small or care about climbing up and down. Those factors are rather necessary to feel it as their own place. Just like such a space found during climbing up a tree, it is nice that each family member has a position connected to the whole without being isolated. As the time passes, those positions can be exchanged to allow more ways of having fun. Save this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesWhat happens when light and wind comes in? Not a direct and strong sunlight but soft, processed light or layers of reflected light to lighten up the space fluffily, which should be comfortable. Small light or soft breeze coming in one place could affect the surroundings, be shared and work on the whole space. You can have a glimpse of a relaxed family through the gap (hole) where light and breeze come through. Family gathering beneath the tree, or spending time above the tree are such primitive models but could certainly be applied to the contemporary life.

Unforgettable: Natalie Cole (1950-2015)

first_imgTaken from a Jan. 2 audio column recorded by prisonradio.org.Her voice, rippling like warm lake water, has been moving through my memory for hours now, ever since I heard of her shocking passing.How many hours had I enjoyed her playful, enchanting, enthralling alto, contralto, her soprano peaks? Countless. How many times had I stared at her photos, emblazoned on album covers, a beaming smile in a pecan-colored face, caught in a moment of sun-touched beauty, her eyes ablaze like a laughing lioness?Natalie Cole. “Unforgettable.” … Yes. But also, unbelievable.When she, the daughter of the dazzling dark crooner, Nat King Cole, was able to sing a duet with her long-dead father, a thing of magic and beauty was born. Daughter and father, joined across time: “Unforgettable.” It won her a Grammy in 2008, but, more importantly, it won the hearts of millions to hear the two united in song. “This Will Be” and “Our Love” were some of her biggest hits.Natalie Cole suffered for years from hepatitis C and its side effects. She even had a kidney transplant.Her remarkable voice will now, like her father’s, echo through time.Natalie Cole, “Unforgettable Still,” joins the ancestors, after 65 winters in America.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Bottom Dog actress nominated for top award

TAGSartsBottom Dog TheatreBridge Clearyfeaturedfull-imageIrish Times Theatre AwardsJoanne RyanLiam O’BrientheatreWhat Happened Bridgie Cleary Advertisement AN ACTRESS with Limerick theatre company Bottom Dog Theatre saw her work recognised with a nomination for a prestigious national award this week.Joanne Ryan was shortlisted for the leading actress category in the Irish Times Theatre Awards for her performance in the title role in ‘What Happened Bridgie Cleary’, which Bottom Dog Theatre ran for 11 nights last autumn.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Producer Liam O’Brien described the nomination as “a huge honour and testament to Joanne’s talent”, as well as giving credit to everyone involved in the production.He said: “This is great news for Joanne and for the company. We put a lot of work into it and the judges came down to see it, so it’s great to get that recognition.“It was up to me as the producer to go after the judges and it was hard to get them down to Limerick. I had been in contact with them but I had no feedback from them after their visit, although I knew we were being considered seeing as they were there.“We had a cast of three and a creative team of nine involved. It was a real team effort and we didn’t have a huge budget. In fact, we had a fairly small budget.”Bottom Dog Theatre’s adaptation of ‘What Happened Bridgie Cleary’ received funding from Limerick Arts Encounter and it was staged for an 11-show run last October at the Victoria Snooker Club in Hartstonge Street. It was directed by John Murphy and, along with Ms Ryan, starred Pius McGrath and Myles Breen.It is based on the true story of Bridgie Cleary, a Tipperary woman who was murdered by her husband in 1895 after he believed that she had been abducted by fairies with a changeling left in her place.
