first_imgMujeres anglicanas y episcopales concurren a la reunión anual de la UNCSW Curry y Jennings dicen que el activismo de las mujeres es la obra de Dios orientada por el Espíritu Santo. Submit a Press Release Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Curate Diocese of Nebraska Featured Events Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Hopkinsville, KY Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Belleville, IL El obispo primado Michael Curry y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados Gay Clark Jennings escuchan cuando Lynnaia Main, representante de la Iglesia Episcopal ante las Naciones Unidas, formula una pregunta presentada por un participante el 21 de marzo durante una sesión en la capilla de Cristo el Señor del Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ ENS.[Episcopal News Service] El obispo primado Michael Curry y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados Gay Clark Jennings les dijeron a mujeres provenientes de toda la Iglesia Episcopal y todo el ámbito de la Comunión Anglicana reunidas para asistir a la Comisión de Naciones Unidas sobre la Condición [Jurídica y Social] de la Mujer [UNCSW por su sigla en inglés], que su activismo es obra de Dios.Las mujeres están en Nueva York para asistir a la 61ª. sesión de la UNCSW que tiene lugar del 13 al 24 de marzo.La UNCSW promueve los derechos de las mujeres en los terrenos político, económico, civil, social y educacional y hace recomendaciones sobre problemas urgentes respecto a los derechos de las mujeres. La conferencia se ha reunido anual o bianualmente desde 1946 y alcanzó un punto de inflexión en Pekín [Beijing] en 1995 cuando adoptó un marco de política global en pro la igualdad de género y el empoderamiento de las mujeres que identificó 12 áreas de interés fundamental.En su sermón, durante el oficio eucarístico el 21 de marzo en el Centro [Denominacional] de la Iglesia Episcopal, Curry dijo que la UNCSW hace más que “suscitar consciencia e inquietud” acerca de los problemas que enfrentan las mujeres.Las participantes también aspiran, dijo él “a alentar a las potencias que [operan] en el mundo a promulgar legislaciones, a comprometerse en la acción política, a hacer cambios que promuevan la igualdad que Dios se propuso desde el comienzo, promover los medios de emancipar a las mujeres de manera que puedan, a su vez, emancipar a sus hijos y no sólo a sus hijos, sino a sus comunidades y a sus naciones”.“Cuando ellas [las mujeres] se liberan el mundo entero se libera”, afirmó él.“Se trata de la supervivencia de la raza humana. Vuestra labor de promoción social, de aliento, de amable impulso, o de un poco de presión, esta labor es nada menos que la obra de Dios”, dijo Curry durante su sermón.Curry alentó a las participantes de la UNCSW a no descorazonarse cuando la labor resulta ardua, sino, por el contrario, a recordar a Ester, la heroína bíblica que salvó a su pueblo. “Aunque ustedes no lo sepan, hay un Dios y hay un Espíritu que se deja sentir en los círculos del poder siempre que surge una Ester”, afirmó.Lupe Ayllon Ruiz, de la Diócesis de Florida Central, que sostiene el micrófono, habla de su experiencia en la 61ª. sesión de la Comisión de Naciones Unidas sobre la Condición de la Mujer mientras el obispo primado Michael Curry y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados Gay Clark Jennings la escuchan. Angela Smith, de la Diócesis de Kansas Occidental, a la izquierda, está traduciendo. Ambas mujeres son parte de la delegación de la Iglesia Episcopal a la reunión de la ONU. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ ENS.Curry and Jennings, que presidieron el oficio eucarístico, celebraron una sesión de una hora de duración con las delegadas ese mismo día.El problema de los refugiados y los inmigrantes surgió más de una vez durante la sesión de la tarde con Curry y Jennings. Una pregunta se refería específicamente a la respuesta de la Iglesia Episcopal a las personas, especialmente niños, que huyen de la violencia en el [llamado] Triángulo Norte de Centroamérica, formado por El Salvador, Honduras y Guatemala. Algunos de ellos han terminado en centros de detención en Estados Unidos.“Estos son nuestros prójimos. Sus derechos humanos están siendo violados en sus países, en la migración y luego en nuestras comunidades”, replicó Jennings.“Adoramos a un niño que huyó de la violencia en su propio país”, dijo ella. “Y en consecuencia, eso está en el corazón de nuestra historia de fe y discipulado cristianos, y en el corazón de nuestro discipulado está el llamado a acoger a nuestro prójimo”.Advirtiendo que su respuesta podría sonar política, dijo ella. “Construir un muro no nos volverá a hacer grandes”. Recibir “a todos los que llegan hasta nosotros huyendo de la violencia y la degradación; eso es lo que nos hace grandes, no sólo como cristianos, sino como ciudadanos”,  afirmó Jennings.Muchas congregaciones y diócesis episcopales están intentando “proteger a miembros de sus congregaciones y de sus comunidades para garantizar que no se produzcan deportaciones inapropiadas”. Los problemas “pesan en los corazones y mentes de todos, y las personas están a la búsqueda de respuestas creativas”, subrayó ella, instando a las mujeres a llevar de vuelta a sus colegas en el liderazgo percepciones e ideas tomadas de las conversaciones que se han producido en las reuniones de la UNCSW.Una mujer dijo que acababa de aprender acerca de la labor presupuestaria sensible al género, una herramienta para evaluar como las opciones presupuestarias contribuyen a alcanzar los objetivos de la igualdad sexual. Ella le preguntó a Curry y a Jennings si la Iglesia Episcopal contemplaba sus compromisos económicos a través de esa lente.“Lo primero que voy a hacer es ir a Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas y preguntar: ‘¿Han oído la frase labor presupuestaria sensible al género?’”, dijo Jennings  provocando un aplauso. “Y si no, ¿tendrían la bondad de designar a unas cuantas personas para encontrar lo que es esto y cómo afecta a nuestro desarrollo presupuestario?”Ella hizo notar que Barbara Miles, una mujer laica, preside Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas, el comité responsable de proponer el presupuesto trienal ante cada reunión de la Convención General.El tema para la 61ª. Sesión de la UNCSW es el empoderamiento económico de la mujer en el mundo cambiante del trabajo. El “tema a revisar” de la conferencia es el de “retos y logros en la implementación de los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio para mujeres y niñas”, lo cual fue el título de las “conclusiones acordadas” de la 58ª. Sesión de la UNCSW . Esos objetivos se conocen ahora como los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible. Un énfasis importante seguirá siendo la puesta en práctica de la Agenda 2030 y de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible.Cada sesión emite un documento de “conclusiones acordadas”. Las delegadas abogan por cambios al anteproyecto para esta sesión que se publicó el mes pasado. Los negociadores han instado a las delegadas a presentar sugerencias e ideas prácticas que puedan funcionar sobre el terreno. Los acuerdos finales van a las Naciones Unidas. Si resultan aprobados, la Asamblea General espera que los estados miembros los pongan en vigor.Invitaron a representantes de estados miembros, entidades de la ONU, y organizaciones no gubernamentales acreditadas ante el Consejo Económico y Social de Naciones Unidas a asistir a la sesión. La Iglesia Episcopal es una de las numerosas organizaciones no gubernamentales acreditadas, también llamadas organizaciones de “la sociedad civil”, dedicadas a la labor de promoción social y activismo, representadas en las Naciones Unidas.Curry presentó una declaración oficial a la sesión en nombre de la Iglesia Episcopal, la cual destaca tres áreas prioritarias para mejorar el empoderamiento económico de las mujeres en el mundo cambiante del trabajo: promover el acceso de mujeres y niñas a la educación y la educación de igualdad sexual para todos; expandir los beneficios socioeconómicos que apoyan las contribuciones de las mujeres en el trabajo y priorizar recursos  y programas para grupos marginados de mujeres y niñas.La declaración y sus prioridades son el fundamento por el cual las delegadas abogan y comparten sus propias historias, reflexiones y preocupaciones.Participantes de la UNCSW prestan atención, el 21 de marzo en la capilla de Cristo el Señor del Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal, mientras la presidente de Empoderamiento de Mujeres Anglicanas, Christina Hing, de la Diócesis de Nueva York, hace una pregunta sobre cómo responder a la “política del momento”. La sesión contó con la participación del obispo primado Michael Curry y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados Gay Clark Jennings.

There’s a Grant for thatNext articleApopka Burglary Report and Map Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Budgeted for 10 new officers in 2017The Apopka Police Department began its 2017 hiring campaign today with a goal of reaching a standard of three officers per 1,000 residents.

The grant is being offered through the 2016 COPS Hiring Program (CHP). The estimated amount of Federal funds to be awarded over the three year grant period is $625,000; the local match to the City of Apopka will be $339,800 over the same period.The APD was already scheduled to hire five additional officers in the 2016-17 budget, but the CHP grant is in addition to those new hires.“We are excited to be able to continue to provide the level of service the community deserves,” said APD Chief Michael McKinley. “The department has been falling behind due to the growth within the city of Apopka. The five officers the council approved in this budget, along with the five additional officers we were able to get with the Federal grant, will allow us to continue to serve the community at a high level.”Today, McKinley began the APD’s hiring campaign with this flyer posted on his Facebook page:If you are looking for a career in law enforcement, the Apopka Police Department currently has open positions for sworn police officers and is looking for qualified candidates.

The Rugby Club Plays of the year 2010

first_imgFriday Sep 10, 2010 The Rugby Club Plays of the year 2010 As the Tri Nations comes to a close tomorrow in Sydney with the final game of the tournament, it signals the end of another season of Plays for the Rugby Club team at Fox Sports. This is their Plays of the Year compilation.Sean Maloney takes us through their pick of the greatest moments – both on and off the field from the start of the year as we get to see the usual mix of the best hits, great tries, and a fair smattering of good looking girls.Speaking of girls, the hit of the year comes from none other than Wallaroos winger Nicole Beck, who made one of the hits of the Womens Rugby World Cuptournament recently.In the tries category theyve got big Victor Matfieldand his neat chip and chase, as well as Corey Jane setting up Mils Muliaina for a fantastic try, but theres no surprise in the best try award going to Quade Cooper and the Reds from the Super 14 a few months back.Kurtley Beale, seen earlier today on the Friday Funniespost, makes an appearance in this clip too, for both his header and his sensational winning penalty kick.All in all, its a great video with plenty of laughs and loads of top rugby action.

Traidcraft’s cheeky pitch for charity of the year deal fails

first_img Traidcraft has made an amusing but unsuccessful attempt to be chosen as one of the beneficiaries of The Guardian’s Christmas appeal.The Guardian’s Christmas appeal is a valuable prize for any charity. In 2002 WaterAid received £437,280 as a result, together with extensive coverage.As well as submitting its application form, Traidcraft decided to try to influence The Guardian’s staff directly. Working with its agency Feel, it used a variety of inventive devices to bring the charity’s work to the attention of Guardian staff. Banners and bananas outside the Farringdon Road office of the newspaper all contained messages for the staff. In the third week of the campaign the charity sent a fake Guardian payslip to 30 senior editors, demonstrating the average monthly salary of a tea worker. Advertisement The agency even set up a Web site to promote the charity’s campaign at naidraug.co.uk (‘guardian’ spelled backwards) and promoted the address with a banner outside the newspaper’s offices. Finally the agency created a four-page tabloid newspaper promoting the charity’s desire to be chosen, and distributed it amongst Guardian staff.Such creative pushiness sadly did not pay off. Traidcraft did not get chosen.Still both charity and agency should be congratulated for such a novel and creative approach to seeking corporate support. Another time and another place, it might just work.  26 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Digital Giving/Philanthropycenter_img Howard Lake | 21 November 2003 | News Traidcraft’s cheeky pitch for charity of the year deal fails About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Cuba rebuilds despite U.S. blockade

first_imgVenezuela’s first Hurricane Irma aid to Cuba is mattresses, water supplies and canned food. Armed with rubber boots and gloves, 68 U.S. activists will join the Che Brigade in Cuba on Oct. 1. Their voluntary work includes hurricane clean-up.Revolutionary Cuba’s record of mobilizing to defend its population from natural disasters was put to the test when, starting on Sept. 8, Hurricane Irma ravaged more than 200 miles of its north coast for three days. Hitting with 185-mph winds, Irma devastated the provinces of Camaguey, Ciego de Avila, Sancti Spiritus, Villa Clara, Matanzas and Havana.With Irma originally forecast to narrowly miss the island, the socialist government and its popular organizations placed more than 2 million people, including 14,000 tourists, into shelters in government buildings, schools and even mountain caves.The Guardian newspaper reported on Sept. 13: “The week before the storm hit, the island’s pharmaceutical industry was instructed to put other medicines on hold so as to manufacture and distribute hydration salts.“Tons of extra flour were distributed to state bakeries in the days before the hurricane struck. Authorities cut gas and electricity before the storm hit, but bakers in Havana’s Vedado district worked through the night, using a petrol generator and sometimes even firewood to keep production going.”Ten people were killed by the worst storm to hit the island since 1932. In Ciego de Avila province, a storm surge of 16 to 23 feet was recorded. (cnn.com, Sept. 9) Thirty-six-foot-high waves crashed over Havana’s Malecón seawall and sent rivers of seawater through wide swaths of the city.The storm severely damaged Cuba’s electrical network, water supply system and large parts of the island’s agricultural sector. It damaged 4,000 buildings, partially or totally destroying 1,200.Because of the U.S.’s 57-year unjust blockade imposed on Cuba, the country has inadequate resources to build sufficiently sturdy homes, let alone reinforce existing buildings enough to withstand these terrible storms — storms made more powerful by imperialist-spawned global warming. It will take time and tremendous effort to rebuild.Displaying international solidarityYet in a tremendous show of international solidarity, Cuba has already dispatched 750 doctors and other medical personnel to other hard-hit island nations in the Caribbean impacted by hurricanes Irma, Jose and Maria. To combat earlier disasters, Cuba sent hundreds of medical professionals to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake and to Liberia to help control the 2014 Ebola outbreak.Cuba’s offer to send medical assistance to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 was rejected by Washington.Hours before Hurricane Irma struck Cuba, Trump renewed part of the U.S. blockade against it for another year. U.S. imperialism has refused to offer any kind of assistance to Cuba. And several days after the hurricane, on Sept. 19, Trump slandered the Cuban government in the U.N. General Assembly, calling it “corrupt” and “destabilizing.” He said that the U.S. will not lift its sanctions until Cuba undergoes “fundamental reforms,” which means, of course, regime change and the restoration of capitalism.The Cuban Foreign Ministry posted a statement denouncing and protesting Trump’s attack as “disrespectful, unacceptable and meddling statements.” (­reuters.com, Sept. 20)Although the Cuban government has created a special bank account to accept donations for hurricane relief, the blockade makes it difficult or impossible for people to donate, even from outside the U.S. The U.S. government has fined European banks for conducting financial transactions with Cuba, which has hampered previous donation efforts.Venezuela was the first country to send humanitarian aid to Cuba. Bolivia, China, Japan, Russia, Panama, Vietnam and Colombia, among others, have also sent assistance. (periodico.cu, Sept. 19)“During a speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Friday [Sept. 22], Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez said he wanted to express ‘profound gratitude for those who have offered to assist Cuba’ and offered to help hurricane victims in neighboring Caribbean islands to ‘the extent of our modest possibilities.’“‘I want to convey the testimony of the people of Cuba, who are currently carrying out a colossal effort to recover from the severe damages caused by hurricane Irma to housing, agriculture, the power system and other services,’ Rodríguez said.” (miamiherald.com, Sept. 22)It will be a critical task for activists in the U.S. to provide the best aid to Cuba in the face of the Trump regime’s hostile attacks against its people. Now is the time to use every effort to end the U.S. blockade once and for all.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
