“I really do believe that what you are doing, that this ministry … gathering the Asian-American community wherever you may be, gathering together as part of the Episcopal-Anglican way of being Christian – that this gathering together has more significance than just coming to a church meeting,” said the presiding bishop during his sermon at the opening Eucharist.“We are about the business … of real evangelism. That is not sectarianism; real evangelism is not about making a bigger church. Real evangelism is about being a better world. Real evangelism is about what our slave ancestors were talking about when they used to sing, ‘Oh there’s plenty good room, plenty good room, plenty good room in the flawless kingdom.’Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preaches during the Sept. 27 opening Eucharist of the Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries National Consultation in Honolulu. Photo: Christopher Sikkema“Plenty good room for all God’s children. Real evangelism is about changing this world from the nightmare it often is into the dream that God intended from the time God first said let there be anything at all,” Curry said.Curry referenced June’s royal wedding, where he preached about Jesus’ love for the world, and how the love of two people brought together an audience of 2 billion people to witness that love.During the service, the ANDREWS program and its first group of mentors were introduced.ANDREWS, an acronym for Asiamerica Network of Disciples, Revivalists, Evangelists, Witnesses and Servant Leaders, is a mentoring program of the Asiamerica Ministries Office in partnership with Episcopal Asiamerica Ministry Council and the Thriving in Ministry project of Virginia Theological Seminary.ANDREWS’ goal is to develop a network of well-trained mentors and disciple-makers from among the EAM ethnic convocations – Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, South Asian, Southeast Asian and Pacific Islander. “Rice and Sing,” an anthology of diverse, Asian-cultural hymns and spiritual songs; in-person training; and a virtual classroom are in development.“We have big plans for the mentoring program. We want to develop 70 well-trained Asian-American Episcopalians to do evangelism, church planting,” and revival of churches, said Vergara – topics that were explored through the lens of the Jesus Movement and the Way of Love on Sept. 28 during the opening plenary session.The Rev. Stephanie Spellers, canon to the presiding bishop for evangelism, reconciliation and stewardship of creation, talked about her own journey to reclaiming Christianity, a path that took her into Eastern religious philosophy before she returned to Christianity and reclaimed Jesus, something the Episcopal Church is now doing, she said.Growing up, she didn’t want to have much relationship to Jesus or Christ, Spellers said. “Christianity was exclusive and filled with doctrines, rules, rigid belief systems, and Jesus was sort of the king and judge lording over all of that,” said Spellers. “There was no other way of presenting it.”The Rev. Stephanie Spellers, canon to the presiding bishop for evangelism, reconciliation and stewardship of creation, talks during a Sept. 28 plenary session about her own journey to reclaiming Christianity. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceThen, she ended up studying in the religious department at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, a Southern Baptist school. Her studies started her on a different spiritual path, one focused on practice and a way of being and living. Eventually, after going deeper into Eastern traditions, she came back to Christianity, when a Buddhist nun in San Francisco told her to reclaim Christianity.“It feels like that’s what we are doing as an Episcopal Church right now,” Spellers said. “We are reclaiming Christianity not as only a rigid belief system, a set of doctrines and dos and don’ts; we are certainly reclaiming Christianity as a community that raises all the people, not just some of the people, but I think what we are doing especially today is we’re reclaiming the way of being Christian as being a follower of Jesus in a way, on a path. And that’s the understanding … I have of what is the Jesus Movement.“And actually, the Jesus Movement is simply the community of people who say, ‘I’m following Jesus, I’m following on his path. I’m following his way.’ He has shown us a way – a way of love – and I want that way to be my way. And I want to change, I want to see my own life changed, and then I want to be a part of changing this world because of that way.”The consultation includes two days of workshops, which are livestreamed and can be viewed on demand here.Workshop topics include Issues in Hawai’ian Sovereignty, Identity and Reconciliation, Living into a Healed Community Through Hawai’ian Dance, Anti-Human Trafficking (Mission to End Modern Day Slavery), Evangelism in the New Community, and Toward Peace in Community. The two additional plenary sessions topics are Becoming Beloved Community and Caring for the Earth and All Creation.

Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Honolulu] The Asian diaspora isn’t easily defined; “Asia” can mean anything from Chinese to South Korean to Filipino to Indian. Each ethnicity has its own rich cultural identity, with many having diverse dialects and cultures within that identity.As evidenced by the opening Eucharist of the Sept. 27-Oct. 1 Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries National Consultation, many of those cultures and identities are present in the Episcopal and Anglican Churches.“There are almost 300 people coming here from various Asian constituencies, not only in the United States, but we have representatives from Vancouver [British Columbia] who are inspired by the work of Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries,” said the Rev. Winfred Vergara, the Episcopal Church’s Asiamerica missioner and the consultation’s co-dean. “We have formed an ACAM, Anglican Canadian Asian Ministries, and there’s a representative from the Church of England and they want also to have a similar organization like we do in England.

The programme in the context of the Zac de la Courrouze, at Rennes: The BH2 programme is located at the north-east end of the ZAC mixed development zone, in the “Bois Habité” area. It is bounded by the Rue Claude Bernard to the east, and by the Boulevard de Cleunay to the north.Save this picture!site planRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – BrickworkPorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles – 20MMCoffee tablesBoConceptMadrid Coffee Table AD19The immediate vicinity: To the south of the programme there is a recent housing estate made up of small collective housing units of between R+1 and R+3. There is a difference of about one metre between the levels of the existing housing estate and the land.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architect To the west of the land, the existing sports ground is being kept, and included in the public parkland bordering the operation, and linked to it by footpaths. To the north, the shale wall left standing defines a solid, enclosure-type boundary with the Boulevard de Cleunay. On the other side of the Boulevard de Cleunay there is a railway line, which is a source of noise pollution near to the land. To the east, the shale wall demolished during the work to widen the Rue Claude Bernard will be rebuilt along the new boundary. As former military wasteland occupied by large workshops, the current land is flat overall and the landscape elements and the vegetation existing on the land are of no particular interest.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectThis project offers morphological and typological diversity around a large shared garden. The great height of some of the buildings means that ground can be made available for a garden that federates all the constructions. The free layout obtained through the “campus” concept is used to optimise the environmentally-friendly quality and performance of the adopted solutions, and in particular the layout of the constructions with respect to their orientation, the treatment of the well exposed frontages, and the urban composition with respect to the urban landscape both in the immediate vicinity and further afield.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectThe taller tower block is located in the northern part of the land and does not cast a shadow on the other buildings. Its position on the edge of the site justifies the building’s outline as a tall signal. The two high-rises share a semi-underground car park and are joined together by its terrace roof forming a common plaza. The terraced houses are set on this walkway slab. This architectural and urban arrangement made up of the two towers and the terraced housing forms a constructed sequence between the large central garden and the landscaped area of the former stadium. These two broad open landscaped spaces leave a clear view from the lower housing units.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectEach building offers a particular typology suited to its location, orientation and height, so as to get the best out of it in terms of housing unit comfort. The freer layout of the two tall buildings makes for highly effective optimisation of the orientation and exposure of the frontages. The north front is the narrowest exposed surface area and the south front is the widest.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectIn the two tower blocks, whose south fronts are spiked with protruding boxes, the living rooms of the housing units open up broadly to the south of the ZAC through loggias/terraces. These excrescences are veritable outside extensions to the living space, protected on the sides with walls up to half-height to cut down noise, wind and sunlight. The treatment of the three other facades and the top is handled in different ways from one tower to the other, taking into account their height and site location and with respect to the surrounding landscape:Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectThe North tower block, the taller one, is the most imposing in the distant urban landscape, in particular from Rennes city centre. This is why the top section is different, the last two floors having special volumetry: pulled back from the main body, creation of a kind of parapet walk. These architectural arrangements assert the desire to turn towards the city and its centre, even though due to the orientation and the noise pollution from the railway line the north facade is less opened up and more height is given to the south facade, thereby giving the tower a rather unusual skyline.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectThe tower’s main body is wrapped on the north, east and west facades in a smooth, shiny mantle of vertical metallised ribbed cladding covering insulation on the outside of the building structure, in contrast with the more sculptural, mineral appearance of the south facade. On the ground floor, the tower fuselage is set on a brick base on the plaza ground or on the slightly sloping ground of the grassy areas.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectThe South tower block, which is lower and less slender in its proportions, has a dissymmetrical fuselage, thinner to the east on the inner garden side, broader to the west on the ZAC park side. This differentiation between the east and west facades is also emphasised in the colour of the casing of vertical ribbed cladding which wraps around and insulates the north, east and west facades. The treatment of the south facade, and the ground floor base, are the same as on the first tower block. The rake on the fuselage is continuous all the way up to the sloping ridge. Any different treatment on the last two storeys would have had the effect of making the tower look stockier, being less tall than the other.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectThe volumetry of the six housing units at the foot of the tower blocks is similar to a typology of houses grouped in threes. They are one-storey houses with sloping roofs opening widely onto the ZAC park, with an east-west exposure so that the two towers bookending them to the north and south will not spoil the view or block the sunlight.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectAlong the Rue Claude Bernard the housing units between the central garden and the old shale wall left standing have continuity of scale with the existing programme to the south, and a degree of volumetric freedom with respect to the other buildings in the operation. It is a predominantly horizontal construction comprising a strip of terraced, superimposed duplex apartments. Sited at the interface between the street and the inner garden, the small block is set away from the noise of the street and the new shaft, opening up broadly onto the garden. On the second floor level, a succession of gabled volumes, slightly set back from the main R+1 building, produces an effect of houses set on a shared terrace roof. Likewise, on the west side, on the ground floor of the private gardens, the coloured boxes of the kitchens projecting out from the linear volume give a homely scale to the whole.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectThe two ends of the small block have been given unusual volumetric treatments, with corner articulation for the north part, and the operation’s entrance door for the south part, according to their special siting with respect to the urban context and their position in relation to the other buildings.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectThe building materials and colors. We chose to restrict the number of materials used, chosen for their aesthetics and durability, and their ability to blend together inside the operation and with their nearby urban setting, as well as their potential technically to meet the targets of passive insulation and long-term economy set for this project. The colours associated with these materials tend to set them off against each other, and to emphasise to a greater or lesser degree certain special features linked to use (loggias) or to volumetric and architectural expression (the tower facades).Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectThe facades on the north tower are covered on the north, east and west sides from the first to the eighth floors with vertical corrugated metallised cladding, and the same cladding for the last two floors. The ground floor base is lined with black brick. The entire height of the south front is in surface coated concrete, its taupe colour verging on rust, likewise on the outer faces of the terraces – projecting loggias. The inner faces of the loggias are in brighter colours, greens, yellows, pinks and reds, to make these “outdoor rooms” feel more like part of the home. On the top floors the solid breast walls on the projecting boxes are replaced by coloured glass guard rails.Save this picture!Courtesy of philippe gazeau architectFor the cladding covering the south tower, the colours are treated dissymetrically: dark green on the inner garden side, metal grey on the west side. The south facade is handled in the same spirit as the other tower. The sloping roofs over the volume of the stairwell on both towers are fitted with solar panels. The duplexes on the top floor are used to build all the technical aedicules into the tower volumes (on the non accessible landing). Only the stairwell volume is extended to offer easy access for maintenance of the roof and solar panels. The six housing units at the foot of the two towers are sheltered by surface coated concrete shells in the same colour as the towers. Their sloping roofs consist of dark green steel deck. The kitchens projecting out on the west side are covered with dark green and anthracite ribbed metal cladding.Save this picture!section 03The small block on the Rue Claude Bernard uses the same materials and colours. Surface coated concrete for the first two floors, metal grey cladding for the second floor houses, dark green and anthracite for the projecting kitchens on the west side ground floor. The south side of the slopes on the two roofs on the houses on the terrace roof are completely covered and sealed by a set of built-in solar panels. The north slopes are made from dark green steel deck. The rendering from the facade to the corner extends that of the rebuilt shale wall.Save this picture!section 01Project gallerySee allShow lessMetro Station 20 Proposal / NC-OfficeArticlesConvida Suape Masterplan / Broadway MalyanArticlesProject locationAddress:Rennes, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

We have been listening to the recent anonymous testimonials of sexual harassment in the fundraising sector collected by Ruby Bayley-Pratt.“We want to actively encourage people to come forward and report complaints if they have experienced sexual harassment by a member of the Institute or at an Institute event, no matter when that incident happened. Those incidents will be investigated fully, even if the person complained of resigns their membership of the Institute.“We expect our member organisations to tackle sexual harassment in the workplace, to create an environment for fundraisers to share their experiences and to protect those who are affected. Harassment will not be tolerated, no matter whether this comes from an employee, board member, a beneficiary or a charity’s most important donor.“We are setting up a Taskforce on Sexual Harassment in Fundraising led by two of our trustees, Claire Rowney and Isobel Michael. They will be joined by an HR and legal expert. This review will be used to inform a sector-wide approach to tackling sexual harassment in the fundraising community.“The Taskforce will also look at how we can strengthen the IoF’s Code of Conduct and existing complaints policy, to ensure they are fit for purpose and provide an open and safe space for people to report complaints.“I am grateful to Ruby Bayley-Pratt for agreeing to join the taskforce.“Fundraising is a profession for everyone. We do brilliant things that raise vital funds for good causes. All this should be done in a safe and respectful environment. We will work to clamp down on unacceptable behaviour and ensure our fundraising community is a safe space for everyone.”People can find out how report sexual harassment by a member of the Institute or at an Institute event, no matter when that incident happened, through its complaints policy. It is also encouraging people to familiarise themselves with its guidance on safeguarding and whistleblowing and with their rights as fundraisers. 383 total views, 2 views today The Institute of Fundraising has today (28 March) announced that it is setting up a taskforce on sexual harassment in fundraising, following a discussion held yesterday by its Board of Trustees on the issue and the role it can play in dealing with it.A recent article by Ruby Bayley-Pratt, Fundraising Policy and Research Manager at the British Red Cross in Fundraising magazine highlighted the prevalence of the issue in the sector, with many fundraisers responding with their own experiences of sexual harassment.

Organisation May 17, 2019 Find out more Help by sharing this information October 2, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Maoist unionists told to stop using violence against Kantipur press group RSF_en Receive email alerts to go further News Follow the news on Nepal Reporters Without Borders is outraged by violent physical attacks on the Kantipur press group by unions affiliated to the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), which have obstructed distribution, threatened journalists and carried out serious acts of sabotage. The group publishes the Kantipur and Kathmandu Post daily newspapers.”We are in complete solidarity with the Kantipur press group, which is once against being harassed by a union linked to the Maoists,” the press freedom organisation said. “Wage disputes must be resolved through dialogue, not by such illegal means as sabotage, threats and blockades. It is clear the dispute is not just about wage demands. The Maoist unions are displaying a high level of intolerance and their actions are a complete violation of the undertakings the Maoist leaders gave to support press freedom.”Members of the Maoist-affiliated All Nepal Communication, Printing and Publications Workers’ Union (ANCPPWU) sabotaged electrical installations at the Kantipur group’s printing press on the evening of 30 September. A member of the Kantipur staff told Reporters Without Borders that unionists also tried to set fire to one of the group’s buildings in the capital. Distribution of the 1 October issues was severely disrupted and a return to normal could take several days.After unionists vandalised the car of the group’s managing director, Kailash Sirohiya, on 30 September, the management fired nine unionised employees who allegedly took part in some of the Maoist union’s activities. The next day, a Maoist member of the interim parliament, Shalik Ram Jamkatel, who also heads a Maoist union, threatened to kidnap a Kantipur executive, accused the group of violating workers’ rights and re-issued a call for an advertising boycott of its two dailies.In the same speech, Jamkatel also threatened to attack the group’s TV station, Kantipur Television Network. “The Nepalese will not die from a lack of news from Kantipur,” he told the unionists blocking the entrance to the group’s main building. “We don’t need their news. Or their journalists either. We are ready to muster 100,000 workers in an hour to attack Kantipur.”These acts of sabotage have taken place despite a ruling issued by a court in the city of Patan on 28 September ordering the Maoist union to stop harassing the press group. Kantipur has also received the support of Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala, while the Editor’s Alliance circulated a statement condemning “the Maoist attacks on Kantipur Publications.”Maoist activists prevented distribution of regional editions of the dailies on 1 October in the central city of Bharatpur and the eastern city of Biratnagar, burning hundreds of copies as they left local printing centres. Maoists also torched more than 2,000 copies of the newspapers in the central city of Pokhara.The Maoist unions previously disrupted distribution of the Himalayan Times and Annapurna Post in August. The Maoists launched their latest offensive against Kantipur shortly before an agreement was due to be signed between the management and the unions on 9 September.

According to the ATTOM Data Solutions Q3 2019 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report, there were a total of 143,105 U.S. properties with foreclosure filings in Q3, down 6% year-over-year.“Foreclosure activity continues to decline across the country, which is a good sign that the housing market and the broader economy remain strong – and that the lending excesses that helped bring down the economy during the Great Recession remain a memory,” said Todd Teta, Chief Product Officer at ATTOM Data Solutions. “This is not to say that everything in the latest foreclosure picture is rosy. Some states have seen their foreclosure rates increase this year, which could cause some concern. But overall, the foreclosure numbers reflect a market in which buyers can afford their homes and lenders remain careful in loaning to home buyers who have little chance of repaying.”Running contrary to the national trend, 14 states posted year-over-year increases in foreclosure starts in Q3 2019, including Montana (up 33%); Georgia (up 32%); Washington (up 16%); Louisiana (up 15%); and Michigan (up 12%).By state, the highest foreclosure rates were in Delaware (one in every 415 housing units with a foreclosure filing); New Jersey (one in every 436); Maryland (one in every 500); Illinois (one in every 517); and Florida (one in every 577).By metro, the top two with the highest foreclosure rates were in New Jersey: Atlantic City (one in every 269 housing units with a foreclosure filing) and Trenton (one in every 312).On a national level, despite the reduced foreclosure rates, bank repossessions saw a slight uptick in Q3. Lenders repossessed 34,432 U.S. properties through REO in Q3 2019, up 6% from the previous quarter but down 33% from a year ago. However, 16 states posted quarter-over-quarter decreases in REO activity in Q3 2019, including Maryland (down 37%); Tennessee (down 19%); Delaware (down 16%); New Jersey (down 13%); and Arizona (down 11%).

Year-over-year, delinquencies declined by over 12%.Additionally, Black Knight found that there are now 2.05M loans in some stage of delinquency, including active foreclosures down 236K from the same time last year and the lowest year-end volume since the turn of the century. The strongest declines were primarily in the east and southern portions of the country and in areas heavily impacted by the 2017 and 2018 hurricane seasons.Southern states including Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and Arkansas held some of the largest volumes of non-current loans in the country. As of December 2019, Mississippi holds the highest volume at 9.99%, though this is a month-over-month decline from November’s 10.44%, and a 0.93% decline year-over-year.All top five states in non-current percentages have seen marked declines over the year, with the biggest decline in Louisiana, where the non-current percentage fell by 6.81% from December 2018.The lowest non-current percentages, meanwhile, remain concentrated on and around the East Coast, with Colorado still holding the lowest rate at 1.74%, down from November’s rate of 1.81%. Behind Colorado falls Washington (1.77%), Oregon (1.84%), Idaho (1.91%), and California (2.01%).Black Knights report also covered home price growth. Growth fell from nearly 7% in early 2018 to 3.8% in August 2019, but it gained almost a full percentage point over the last four months of 2019—reaching 4.7% to close the year.“Still, even with home price growth accelerating, today’s low-interest-rate environment has made home affordability the best it’s been since early 2018. At that time, the housing market was red-hot, with national home price growth at 6.6% and climbing—before rising rates and tightening affordability triggered a pullback in growth rates,” said Black Knight Data & Analytics President Ben Graboske. “That’s not the case today. Despite the average home price increasing by nearly $13,000 from just over a year ago, the monthly mortgage payment required to buy that same home has actually dropped by 10% over that same span due to falling interest rates.” Previous: Why GSE Advisor Represents an ‘Important Milestone’ Next: FEMA Funding $2M Wildfire Mitigation Program in California in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Market Studies, News February 3, 2020 1,437 Views Eastern U.S. Dominating Delinquency Declines Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

A division bench of Justices SS Shinde and Manish Pitale was hearing a petition by Usmani seeking quashing of the FIR filed against him at Swargate Police station, Pune, under section 153A (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place..) of the IPC on a complaint by the secretary of the Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha, Pradeep Gawade. Gawde is a former member of ABVP. During the hearing on Monday, senior advocate Mihir Desai submitted that Sharjeel had appeared before investigators, as promised in the last hearing. He said Sharjeel was not denying his speech, but the question is, would it constitute an offence u/s 153A of the IPC. “He has used some harsh words in his speech, words I would not have used. But the speech needs to be seen as a whole,” Desai argued. Justice Shinde then began reading from a translated copy of the speech, in which Sharjeel says he doesn’t have faith in the judiciary and that the country is in a State of war. “I started by saying the speech has certain harsh words…” Desai said. Justice Shinde then said the court is open to criticism. “There were three pillars of democracy, the legislature, the executive and the judiciary. Now there is a fourth pillar, the media. We are open to criticism. The speech needs to be read in its entirety.” Desai said it may take time for the court to apply its minds to the entire speech and suggested the case be kept for hearing on another date. “Three aspects need to be considered; What is the message sent by the speech? Who it was addressed to? And the context in which it was made.” The bench then asked the prosecutor if they required Usmani for further investigation and if he would make a statement not to take coercive action till then. Public Prosecutor JP Yagnik said Usmani would be required for further investigation. He refused to make a statement against taking coercive action but assured the court that the investigating officer was aware of guidelines for arrest as laid down in Arnesh Kumar vs State of Bihar on the rules of arrest and there would be no breach. The Supreme Court had observed that there must be strict compliance of 41(1)(b) of the CrPC if a person is accused of an offence punishable with imprisonment, less than seven years, and she/he cannot be arrested by the police officer only on its satisfaction that the offence was committed. “Police officer before arrest, in such cases, has to be further satisfied that such arrest is necessary to prevent such person from committing any further offence; or for proper investigation of the case; or to prevent the accused from causing the evidence of the offence to disappear; or tampering with such evidence in any manner; or to prevent such person from making any inducement, threat or promise to a witness so as to dissuade him from disclosing such facts to the Court or the police officer; or unless such accused person is arrested, his presence in the court whenever required cannot be ensured,” the SC noted. Yagnik then submitted that Usmani could appear on a preferred date to which Desai said he will join in the investigation on March 18. He assured the court that Usmani would make statements in the media after a question fell from the court. The case was then adjourned for hearing to March 22, 2021Next Story
