Wood/Diocese of Massachusetts[Diocese of Massachusetts] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry joined retired Massachusetts Bishop Suffragan Barbara C. Harris and House of Deputies Vice President Byron Rushing on April 28 at Grace Church in New Bedford, Massachusetts, for a candid panel conversation about racism and about who is on the inside, who is on the outside and who is still on the margins of the church and society.The program, “Our Episcopal ‘Big Tent’: How Big Is It?” was the culminating public event of Curry’s April 26-29 visit in the Diocese of Massachusetts that included preaching at a “Way of Love” rally on Boston Common and gatherings with numerous ministries, groups and congregations from the Merrimack Valley to Cape Cod.“I think the reality is we are not as big a tent as we sometimes think. We’re not as small as we once were,” Curry said, in terms of inclusion, “and I suspect that the tension is that we are somewhere between who we actually are, which is a mix. It is a mix. …“You think the tent is bigger when you’re at the center, but when you’re on the edge, it’s not that big because it doesn’t feel like there’s room for you,” Curry said, adding, “I’ve gotta tell you, it’s work to be a minority in the majority culture, whether that’s racial, or whether that’s gender, or that’s orientation, or whether that’s political.”Rushing, who is serving a third term as vice president of the House of Deputies and is a former Massachusetts state representative, said it is essential to understand that the call to be a church for everyone is a countercultural idea, given that most Americans still live in segregated communities.He described growing up in a Bronx, New York, neighborhood where the majority non-black population was Jewish. “And so when I looked around when I was growing up, I thought all Christians were black and all white people were Jewish,” he said.“The biggest problem of any kind of openness to everybody is that we expect people to arrive some place. And so the people who are in the middle of that place are the most comfortable in that place,” Rushing said. “Sometimes you can be on the edge but you have made a middle for yourself, which is what black people have done in The Episcopal Church. And sometimes even then, there is no place where certain people can have a middle.”Harris, who this year marked the 30th anniversary of her consecration as the first female bishop in the worldwide Anglican Communion, said she is “not as sure the tent is as big as we proclaim it to be, or we may have inadvertently closed some of the flaps by which people can meaningfully come in,” she said. “I think for this really to be a big tent, we have to more fully live into the words: Come in under the broad umbrella of faith. Period.”All three shared personal stories of answering a call to act for justice when there was personal or professional risk involved, and all three pointed to Jesus in their closing words of challenge and encouragement for these divided and partisan times.Harris said she wouldn’t deal in words of woe, but left the audience with this advice: “My mother used to say to me, growing up, ‘Pray to God and ask people.’ So that’s my word of weal,” Harris said. “Pray to God and ask people, and some right will come out of it.”“I’m with Barbara in this,” Rushing said. “I think most of us in this room could give the woe list real fast. I am convinced that the authority is Jesus. And I am more and more convinced that he is with us for this one reason: To have us understand that we are all human beings and have to love each other. That there is no love if we can figure out ways of having some list of people that we don’t have to love.”“Amen and amen to them,” Curry replied. He recalled the previous day’s meeting with young adults in their 20s and 30s. “The only word I can think of to describe it, it was holy,” he said. “They were asking about how do you run the race and keep running because it’s hard, and opposition within and without is real. And it’s like you say, Byron, you’ve got to keep looking at Jesus.”“Keep eyes on him, because Palm Sunday is real and everybody’s happy,” Curry said. “And Good Friday is real, and ain’t nobody happy. But Easter’s always coming.”Video of the full “Our Episcopal ‘Big Tent’: How Big Is It?” program and video of the “Way of Love” rally on Boston Common, are available here.– Tracy J.

Speculatively built by 19th Century developers, it has been adapted and distorted over time to suit circumstance – acquiring a single storey shop and basement, an extra storey, a cantilevered lavatory and a garage. Of more immediate concern was the basement, where the floor had been dug out and the corbels sheared off the party walls, to provide extra space. These circumstances led us to think of the house as both metaphorically and literally floating. Conceptually, therefore, the project becomes about re-founding the house and in doing so, offering a measure of it – an ordering which allows it to be understood materially, spatially and temporally. The project has a complex programme. The client, an artist, wished to create a living space, a studio space which might be at least partially public, accommodation for long term guests, a garden and a space to sell or rent. The concrete, material fact of the new foundation is extended to become a physical entity within these new spaces, re-establishing their relationships. Both materially and programmatically dense, it allows the spaces around it to become ambivalent. Described topographically rather than as cellular, domestic rooms, they are at varying levels which accommodate the adjustments in the section of the building over time. The concrete element allows this to happen not only programmatically but structurally. It picks up the load of the party walls at first floor level and partially transfers it, allowing the removal of existing cross walls. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsWoodAccoyaAccoya® CanalsPanels / Prefabricated AssembliesULMA Architectural SolutionsMIS Facade PanelWoodEGGEREGGER Surfaces in EDEKAWe wished to establish a material quality between interior and exterior, between city and domesticity. The concrete is poured in situ against douglas fir shuttering and oscillates between rawness and sensuality, the brutal and the precise. The shuttering marks rescale the building, establishing a dimensional rhythm throughout the new spaces. The relationship of the concrete to the timber linings recalls the process of the shuttering and establishes a conversation about time which begins to expose the larger conversation of the history of the house at one scale and everyday acts of inhabitation, at the other. Elsewhere in the building, white wall linings are placed against the existing brickwork of the party wall, allowing the ghosts of previous and current interventions to be partially exposed upon its surface. These new wall planes fold and move to allow the space to be transformed through use. Save this picture!The building becomes finer in relation to its proximity to the body. Furniture becomes 18mm douglas fir ply, an engineered version of the joinered timber wall linings, while the kitchen is formed from a yet finer lining, a 12mm corian piece which floats above the bench. The steps in floor level are carefully scaled to relate to the dimensions of the body. The concrete step of the foundation in the basement, from which the project grows, finally becomes an impromptu seat.Project gallerySee allShow lessPolyclinic / 3LHD ArchitectsArticlesMahaNakhon / Ole Scheeren, OMAArticles Share Khan house / drdh architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officedrdh architectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationRefurbishmentHousesPublished on July 24, 2009Cite: “Khan house / drdh architects” 24 Jul 2009.

The view, through the river, is the skyline of the city of Porto Alegre, but is blocked by the mass of vegetation of the reserve. However, from 2.5m height the view is completely clear. Since the area of greatest permanence of the house is the social one, the solution adopted was to reverse the uses – social area above and intimate area below.Save this picture!© Pedro KokIn the main access of the house, a hall creates the separation of the spaces. In the ground floor we have five suites plus service area.

Rain Returns Next Week

first_imgAudio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.We’ve had a great stretch of harvest weather of late, but that might be coming to an end. That according to HAT Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin in our first harvest weather forecast of the season. It’s brought to you by Beck’s, dedicated to serving a community of farmers who love what they do and are proud to be farmers at heart; First Farmer’s Bank and Trust, proudly serving local farmers and agribusiness for 135 years; and by the Indiana Corn Marketing Council and Indiana Soybean Alliance.Martin says we should have a dry weekend, but an active precipitation pattern is developing in the Canadian prairies that will eventually head our way.“The clouds increase ahead of this front as we move through the Sunday night period. We’re looking at a few scattered showers Monday and then we see the biggest rains coming up from thunderstorms that develop along the tail end of that front in the plains and shoot towards us on Tuesday. All told, I think we can pick up anywhere from probably a tenth or two on the low end to maybe three quarters of an inch or more on the high end. It really comes down to where the thunderstorms breakout.”Behind that system comes cooler temperatures.“I think as we move through the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday timeframe this week coming up, you’re going to see a marked change in air mass; one that’s much cooler. I will even say for Thursday and Friday below normal. Now, that still doesn’t impact us too badly. As long as the air is dry, we should see good evaporation. But remember, cool air cannot hold as much moisture as warm air, so how much can you evaporate in a given day? I think that’s going to go down as well here for the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday period with the cool air in play. The one thing that may help is I think we will see an uptick in winds.”Martin says he is not worried about a freeze event.“There is some concern about frost and freeze a little bit farther north up into Michigan. That’s right where the high-pressure dome is going to be sitting, but I think Indiana southward, the worst we’re going to do is 40 degrees.”Martin’s Indiana Farm Forecast can be heard daily in the HAT podcast (found below) and you can have it e-mailed to you in our daily newsletter.

In order to compensate, TCU will be giving out more scholarships,” said Boschini. “TCU is also dedicated to working with students and their financial aid to make the school affordable.”Another focal point for the board next week will be whether the university decides to opt out of the Texas state campus carry law.The law has spawned numerous debates and forums on the TCU campus, with members of the TCU community passionate on both sides of the issue .A decision on whether TCU will opt out of the law is expected to be announced at the conclusion of the trustees’ full meeting next Friday.Stay connected with TCU360 for updates and breaking news coverage of next week’s trustees’ meeting.

Dissidents and families targeted, covert harassment and reprisals

Accused of causing a traffic accident, they were held for several hours.”We condemn the increase in repression in Vietnam, which we thought had already reached its peak, and the harassment of the families of dissidents,” Reporters Without Borders said. “In particular, we deplore the two-fold method of coercion consisting of reprisals against dissidents themselves together with surreptitious harassment and violent intimidation of their relatives and supporters.” The three people arrested yesterday in Bac Lieu were treated violently by the police before being released. Ta Phong Tan’s sister, in particular, was slapped and punched several times and her face was swollen and bruised when they emerged from the police station.A support committee that had been protesting against their illegal arrest greeted them outside. The protesters also marked the 49th day since the death of Ta Phong Tan’s mother, who set fire to herself in despair at the way the judicial proceedings against her daughter were going.War on blogsThe three dissident news blogs named in the prime minister’s 12 December directive – Dan Lam Bao (“Citizen Journalists”), Quan Lam Bao (“Senior Officials Working as Journalists”) and Bien Dong – have revealed several political and financial scandals involving the Communist Party’s various factions.Citing article 88 (a) of the criminal code, the prime minister accused the blogs of anti-government propaganda, “fabricating and distorting information and agitating against the Communist Party and state.” The day before he issued the directive, the authorities banned civil servants from reading the blogs. Although reading them is not illegal, the government’s firewalls block access.The three detained bloggers who were the subject of yesterday’s incidents in Bac Lieu – Phan Thanh Hai (also known as Anhbasaigon), Nguyen Van Hai (also known as Dieu Cay) and Ta Phong Tan – founded the Free Journalists Club in September 2007.They are still facing the possibility of up to 20 years in prison for anti-government propaganda under article 88 and, after several postponements, their trial is now scheduled for 24 September.Two other bloggers were given jail terms last month on the same charge – Dinh Dang Dinh, who was sentenced to six years on 8 August, and Le Thanh Tung, a member of Bloc 8406, who was sentenced to five years on 11 August.Reporters Without Borders had already condemned the growing crackdown and the continuing convictions of journalists and, above all, bloggers. At least five journalists and 19 netizens are currently held for expressing their opinions freely, which makes Vietnam the world’s biggest prison for bloggers and cyber-dissidents, after China and Iran.Vietnam is ranked 172nd out of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and is one of the 12 countries that Reporters Without Borders has identified as “Enemies of the Internet” because of their systematic use of cyber-censorship.last_img read more

Two Chadian editors detained illegally for defamation

first_img Abderamane Boukar Koyon, the editor of the satirical newspaper Le Moustik, and Martin Inoua Doulguet, the editor of the quarterly Salam Info, have been held in the capital’s Amsinéné prison since 16 August – in violation of Chad’s print and electronic media law – because of a defamation suit by former health minister Toupta Boguéna.The former minister sued them in connection with their coverage of her recent trial on a charge of “sexual assault on a minor,” which was the result of a complaint brought against her by her niece.Issue no. 84 (19-26 June) of Le Moustik alluded satirically to the case without naming those involved. In a 14 July post on the Salam Info Facebook page, Doulguet quoted the comments made by the lawyer representing Boguéna’s niece when he announced that he intended to appeal against Boguéna’s acquittal.Doulguet’s lawyer, Olivier Gouara, told RSF that the detention of the two journalists “violates the law governing the press.” He also accused the prosecutor of committing “a procedural irregularity” by ordering their summary arrest for offences not punishable by imprisonment when “the normal procedure would be to issue a summons to appear in court.”Koyon and Doulguet are due to be brought before a judge on 22 August.“As defamation has not been punishable by imprisonment in Chad since 2010, detaining these two journalists preventively is not only completely absurd but also illegal and shows what little attention the authorities pay to the press law,” RSF’s Africa desk said. “These journalists must be freed at once, without waiting for this case to be heard.”Two days after launching his newspaper in the capital, Doulguet had already been detained in February 2018 on the grounds that his publication permit covered only the south of the country.Despite the decriminalization of press offences, journalism is often obstructed in Chad. Recent major obstacles have included the disconnection of social networks, which continued for more than a year and was ended by President Idriss Déby Itno only last month.Chad is ranked 122nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.
