VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Belleville, IL Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET [Ecumenical News International, London] Faith leaders and community groups in London are promoting “One Hundred Days of Peace” — an initiative to develop a “peace legacy” for the London Olympic Games this summer.Churches, schools and colleges, together with a coalition called London Citizens that includes more than 300 faith and community groups are organizing ecumenical programs of prayer and a range of activities linked to the Olympics to promote peace. These include a campaign called City Safe, which aims to build a network between shops and businesses across London to fight crime. Other activities involve street vigils, talks, discussions and the creation of several peace gardens.Organizer noted that London has experienced violence and trauma in recent years. “The Olympic bid was won in July 2005 amidst great rejoicing across London. The following day the [terrorist] London bombings took place. Last summer, London experienced dramatic outbreaks of rioting and looting. The need for peace in our city has never been greater,” said Barbara Kentish, Justice and Peace fieldworker with the Catholic Diocese of Westminster. In the 2005 bombings on the London Underground and buses, 52 people were killed and 700 injured.In the Athletes’ Village at Olympics Park, a six-room multifaith space has been created to serve Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Jewish, Bahá’í , Jain, Buddhist and Zoroastrian athletes and their supporters. During the Games more than 200 volunteer chaplains will be on duty. Volunteers from all faiths will also be assisting as guides and first aiders, supplying refreshments and counseling.The tradition of an Olympics truce was established in 9th century BC to enable competitors and spectators to travel safely to and from the games through ancient Greece’s warring city-states. The International Olympic Committee decided to revive the ancient concept of the Olympic truce with the view to protecting the interests of the athletes and sport in general, and to encourage the search for peaceful and diplomatic solutions to conflicts around the world.For more information see: http://www.peacelegacy.org.uk/ and http://www.citizensuk.org.

This house was designed for an international couple based in Japan, France, and the United States – a French artist and his Japanese wife – who are keenly interested in the aesthetic of Japanese gardens, as well as Japanese culture and architecture. The house is nestled quietly atop a hill in the historic Japanese city of Kamakura, a wonderfully scenic location overlooking the Shonan coastline, with distant views of Japan’s iconic peak of Mount Fuji. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe clients, who first became interested in Japanese culture through the traditional tea ceremony, have for a long time cultivated a growing interest in Japanese gardens. Having finally decided to settle permanently in Japan, they intend the house to be a place for them to live out their dream. In addition to their own domestic comfort, it was important for them that the house be equipped to host guests from overseas as a guesthouse that will also provide an architectural feast for the eyes.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraIn response to the clients’ requests, we identified the following architectural themes:– To incorporate the symbolic beauty of the surrounding nature and available lines of sight into the architecture so that the structure is in harmony with the site– To adopt a modern Japanese style while simultaneously incorporating traditional methods, practices, and materials– To enable guests to experience a comforting Japanese aesthetic through architectureSave this picture!© Koichi TorimuraSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe façade is designed so as to be completely closed off from the street side by a concrete wall, emphasizing privacy, while the rest of the house opens out as much as possible on the surrounding scenic landscape. The architectural layout and open-close study make it possible to block distracting structures from field of view, drawing exclusive focus on the majestic nature and wonderful scenery.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraA celebrated hallmark of Japanese sukiya architecture is the beauty of continuous eaves, which marry design with function to protect from rain and direct sunlight. We adapted the traditional design of continuous eaves in a modern way, maintaining their sharp, delicate beauty while boldly adopting new materials such as steel plate in their structure and finish.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Koichi TorimuraDrawing on the inherent potential of these materials highlights the strength and delicacy of Japanese architectural design. The use of industrial finishes and plastics characteristic of recent houses has been minimized, with priority instead being given to the coordinated use of traditional Japanese building materials (including granite, Japanese paper, black plaster, wood lattice, and louvers) as a means of showcasing Japanese features and communicating a Japanese aesthetic to foreign visitors.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraWe hope this hybrid of modern and traditional Japanese design will integrate seamlessly with the surrounding nature and facilitate deep and meaningful exchanges with visitors.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraProject gallerySee allShow lessExtension in Burned Wood Shou Sugi Ban / Clément Bacle ArchitecteSelected ProjectsAnas Babu Residence / 3dor ConceptsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/938306/t3-house-cubo-design-architect Clipboard T3 House / CUBO design architectlast_img read more

San Diego airport protest demands ‘No ban! No wall!’

first_imgOver 2,500 San Diegans came to Terminal 2 of the city’s International Airport on Sunday, Jan. 29, to protest Trump’s ban on immigration. Local residents were there who originated from countries all over the globe: Africa, the Caribbean, the Near and Middle East, Asia, Europe and all across the Americas. Sunday was the second day of protest, and the crowd swelled from about 1,000 the day before. The overall theme was “No ban! No wall!” The most repeated chant was “No hate! No fear! Refugees are welcome here!” There was drumming, chanting and lots of moving from one side of the airport entrance to the other. Cars began to circle the airport’s arrivals and departures road with passengers holding out signs, and drivers blowing horns, expressing unity with the protesters. We would be remiss to leave out another crowd favorite: “Hey hey! Ho ho! Donald Trump has got to go!” Now the question is “What’s next?”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Journalist wounded in kidnap attempt, organized crime suspected

The attempted abduction appears to have been prompted by a story he wrote last month October implicating the local police in contraband activities.“We hope there will be a thorough investigation into this attack and that, until it is completed, Gutiérrez will be given effective protection,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is hard not to suspect organized crime’s involvement and its possible infiltration of the local government apparatus. For this reason, and because of the stories Gutiérrez have been covering, the police themselves must also be investigated.”Gutiérrez was approaching his home in the company of fellow journalist Lourdes Torres Calla on the evening of 5 November when two gunmen got out of a parked car.“The first one told me to say nothing while the second grabbed me by the neck and then by the leg,” Gutiérrez told the local press. “It looked as though they wanted to kidnap me, but as I resisted, they shot me in the thigh and started to leave. They fired at me again when I managed to grab one of them, who was injured, and I pulled off his mask.”A month ago, Gutiérrez reported that a gang of smugglers known as “La Culebra” (The Snake) had bribed members of the local police to look the other way whenever contraband goods were move through Juliaca. On the basis of judicial reports, he also revealed several cases of irregular practices by the local police, including forging of certificates and use of a police vehicle for illicit activities. TV reporters were threatened after repeating Gutiérrez’s allegations.Another 60-day extension was declared yesterday to the state of emergency that has been in force for the past two years in several regions – Ayacucho, Cusco, Huancavelica and Junín – on the grounds of the need to combat organized crime and the remnants of the Sendero Luminoso guerrilla group. The state of emergency suspends or restricts several fundamental freedoms, including freedom of assembly and freedom of movement. “It must not, however, limit the media’s ability to provide the necessary investigative coverage of subjects of major public interest such as organized crime and smuggling,” Reporters Without Borders added.Read the Reporters Without Borders report on organized crime.

Celebrating 180 Years of Love and Caring at Hillsides Foster Care Charity

first_img Business News Make a comment Top of the News Community News More Cool Stuff Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Six of Hillsides long-term employees celebrate a total of 180 years on the job.The foster care field is currently in the midst of a dramatic change. While children used to spend years in therapeutic residential homes, today, due to recent legislation, they stay for much shorter durations, with the emphasis on reunification with a child’s family and community.While children come and go at Hillsides Pasadena Residential Treatment Services, which serves 125 children in foster care annually, one thing stays the same: a committed core group of long-term staff members.Research shows that some agencies see a worker turnover rate of as high as 90 percent per year. At Hillsides, however, 100 of the 416-person staff has been here for 5 -10 years and 86 have been on staff for 10 – 30 or more years.Such employees are also the “extreme exception,” in the child welfare industry, according to Bruce Saltzer, the executive director of the Association of Community Human Services Agencies, which represents more than 85 nonprofit community agencies in child welfare, mental health, and juvenile justice services. These jobs are a huge responsibility, a lot of stress, and typically low wages, he said. “To stay this long, people really have to care about what they do and be good at it.”What keeps long-term employees committed and engaged at Hillsides? How have they been able to avoid burn out, which according to an article in Administration and Policy in Mental Health and Mental Health Services Research, may affect 21-67% of mental health workers?Recently six staff members celebrated a combined 180 years of service to the agency. Here, they share their thoughts on what has kept them dedicated to Hillsides all these years.Melvyn Washington, a school liaison with 32 years at Hillsides who advocates for the education rights of Hillsides children, explained his commitment to Hillsides this way: “I’m an overachiever. Everyone always says, if you can save one kid, you’ve done your job. Well, I am going to save as many kids as I can.”He regards each child as the most important one on the planet, and he expects the same from everyone else when negotiating a child’s educational plan. “I always tell the schools, you treat my kids like Sasha and Malia [President Obama‘s daughters], and we’ll get along just great,” he said.Childcare counselor Lucy Garabedian, who the children call “Momma Lucy,” credits her long tenure of 35 years as a childcare worker in the residential cottages to her ability to continually care for each child who comes her way. “I love them on the good days, I love them on the bad days,” she said. “I always make them feel special.” She knows that for many children, she is the first nurturing adult they have had in their lives, and she takes this responsibility seriously.For Hillsides teacher Rob Wherley, who has been at Hillsides for 23 years, it’s his “heart” for vulnerable children that keeps him on the job. “Kids in foster care have such a need; they deserve everything we can give them,” he said. He has used his talents as a singer/songwriter to develop a music program for Hillsides and he also runs a one-on-one reading program, Reading Rocks, for low-achieving readers where some 35 – 40 children participate and have seen their reading levels improve by at least one grade level.Carolyn Clegg, a resource assistant with 36 years under her belt at Hillsides, who admitted that she once did consider quitting a year into the job because it was hard to witness the pain the children in foster care had been through, credits her desire to create a “safe place” for the children for motivating her all these years. Her cozy office is filled with books, games, and art supplies. Any time children need an extra dose of nurturing, they drop by her room for some “Carolyn” time.Campus Supervisor Joseph (Jo Jo) White, who has been with Hillsides for 28 years, compares the job with combat. “I may not win every battle, but I can win the war,” he said. For him, winning the war means “helping kids get better.” One way he does this is to encourage children to make healthy choices even when they’re feeling frustrated or angry at what life has thrown at them. What has sustained him throughout the years is the “reward of the little things,” he said, “like “being able to see the kids drop their walls and allow people to help them.”Another way the staff stays engaged with their jobs is by finding new challenges on the job. “The kids are always changing, so there’s always something fresh and new,” said Rob DaSilva, who started out as a life guard at the campus pool in 1990 and is now a campus supervisor.Looking toward the future, these Hillsides veterans continue to defy the statistics by looking ahead to more years at Hillsides. What keeps them here is the same motivating force that led them to the agency in the first place: “The children,” said Clegg. “It’s all about the children.”Hillsides provides high quality care, advocacy, and innovative services that promote safe, permanent environments where children and youth can thrive. Headquartered in Pasadena, the agency and its affiliation with Bienvenidos serves children and families in Los Angeles County throughout its 35 sites, including school-based mental health offices in Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Baldwin Park. Licensed resource homes, formerly known as foster homes, serve families in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties.

Maybe make a call to the landowners, and see if tests can be started this week or next week.“This is important. When ye are buying land, but it big. Two acres will see us out of trouble, but if we had a 10-acre site we wouldn’t have to worry about graveyards dotted all over the place.”Sinn Fein councillor Seamus Browne told the council executive that the urgency on this matter had not dissipated.“If anything it is more urgent. I would like to see a bit more progress on this. Time is running out. We do need a contingency plan because there is no guarantees these sites will pass the percolation tests and there are now less plots available in Abbeyfeale cemetery,” said Cllr Browne.by Alan [email protected] WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR NewsLocal NewsCouncil seeking site for new Abbeyfeale cemeteryBy Alan Jacques – April 13, 2017 1067 Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Linkedinlast_img read more
