Violent, detestable and racist actions do not just affect those who were physically present; they ripple across the country and around the world and continue to wound us physically, mentally and emotionally. And, regrettably, we have not had the reassurance of a strong moral voice from the “Leader of the Free World” unequivocally denouncing those whose main focus is prejudice, intolerance and narrow-mindedness. What a disgrace!In light of this news and the current state of our nation, it may feel to some that all is lost. Others may believe that we are too divided to ever become the Beloved Community we strive to be. Yet, as Jesus’ disciples, commanded to bring God’s love and justice to the oppressed; to speak the truth of God’s love, and to pray for those with hate and violence in their hearts.When we see these evil acts of violence and intolerance, ours must be the voices and actions of protest and prayer. We must know that we have the ability and the responsibility to change the world and to change the hearts of the hateful. Together can begin to heal our wounds: to listen to each other and to create a future of hope, compassion and love. The dreams of those who have marched and protested and cried out for justice in the past require our action – our labor – to become reality. All is not lost!As Nelson Mandela has written and President Barack Obama has quoted: “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”We have work to do teaching love: from the mansions of the State to the houses of the poorest among us. It is not going to be easy, and it is work that must be done for the cause of justice and because it is the work of the Jesus Movement.May there be peace among us.The Rt. Rev. Wendell N.

The Harold Street Residence is a new two storey dwelling located in a heritage overlay area of Middle Park. The brief called for a new residence for a couple with university age children that would accommodate their evolving family needs. The ground floor provides the primary residence for our clients, engaging both with the street and garden, whilst the upper level provides more flexible living areas and bedrooms for their children, visitors and grandchildren. Save this picture!© John GollingsThe site is the north-west corner of the Neville and Harold Street intersection. The buildings on the other three corner sites are built hard to the Neville Street edge and are typical of the surrounding context – red brick single storey Victorian terraces. The original building on the site was a double storey 1930’s cream brick apartment building that sat as an island on the site and within its’ wider context. Our response attempts to engage with the site’s heritage context through its architectural form and detailing, to explore the public/private nature of the corner site, and to complete the ‘fourth corner’ of the intersection. Save this picture!© John GollingsThe siting strategy locates the building along the Neville Street edge of the site, effectively mirroring the other three corners of the intersection. This enabled the creation of a long garden on the northern and more private half of the site. On this northern facade, a more sculptured interface is created, providing a varied engagement between the garden and living areas. Save this picture!© John GollingsThe twisting form of the zinc clad roof was chosen to reconcile the building with its single storey surrounding context and the requirements of the clients brief. To the Harold Street frontage, this form can be viewed as an abstracted version of the pediments and gables of surrounding roof scapes, and allows the house to be perceived as single storey at the corner entry. The roof sweeps upwards from the corner along the Neville Street frontage following both the natural movement through the house and the programmatic requirements of the internal spaces. Save this picture!© John GollingsThe choice of pressed red brickwork to the external facades reinforces its presence as part of the surrounding context. The brickwork along Neville Street provides a robust public edge to the house. Articulation is added to the surface through ‘hit and miss’ brick detailing and Webforge screening. These gestures are complimentary to the Victorian fretwork and decorative detailing that defines the ambience of the site location. They provide scale and articulation to the wall plane, screening and security to the street edge, cross flow ventilation and cooling, and diffuse light to the internal spaces. At night this condition reverses and the building glows invitingly to the street. In summary, the building is a sculpturally engaging family home that acknowledges its heritage context in a positive way.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow less’Arte s’ Residential Tower / Spark ArchitectsArticlesWorld Stage Design 2013 Festival: Sustainable Theatre Design CompetitionArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/321753/harold-street-residence-jackson-clements-burrows-architects Clipboard Australia CopyAbout this officeJackson Clements BurrowsOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMiddle ParkHousesAustraliaPublished on February 06, 2013Cite: “Harold Street Residence / Jackson Clements Burrows Architects” 06 Feb 2013.

Manchester joins 39 other UK towns and cities including Leeds and Sheffield in having a street fundraising agreement.The agreement, which has been approved by Manchester City Council, sets out four dedicated zones in the city centre where face-to-face fundraising activity can take place and will take effect from 28 February 2011.The number of fundraisers is limited to five per zone and they will only be allowed to fundraise on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 9am and 6pm. No fundraising will be permitted in the city centre at weekends or evenings.Manchester has set up a reporting facility to help monitor street fundraising activity, the first city to do so. Anyone can report any fundraisers who appear to be breaking the agreement by emailing [email protected], if members of the public feel that fundraisers are not adhering to the established national code of professional conduct, they can can contact the PFRA directly on 020 7401 8452 or through the ‘complaint’ button on the website www.pfra.org.uk.Councillor Pat Karney, Manchester City Council’s city centre spokesperson, said: “We believe we have achieved a breakthrough agreement that is acceptable to all parties concerned. We know there was a lot of debate about this issue last year and we have worked hard to address it. It’s important that Manchester city centre remains a pleasant place to work, live and visit but we also recognise charities have the legal right to fundraise on our streets. Working closely with the PFRA and regulating the practice seems the sensible way forward”. Manchester has yet again led the way by offering a dedicated reporting channel to help us monitor the practice.”Dr Toby Ganley, PFRA’s head of policy, added: “CityCo staff and council officials have put in a lot of time and effort into getting this agreement with the PFRA right and we believe it will be effort well spent… Face-to-face fundraising is a valuable income source for many charities, bringing in about £10 million a month.“But no-one should feel guilty about not stopping to talk to a fundraiser. If you don’t want to give, just walk on by. People have a right to decline to give to a charity – but a charity has an equal right to ask them to support their cause and their beneficiaries and this is what the new agreement with Manchester City Council and CityCo enshrines.”www.pfra.org.uk Tagged with: face-to-face Individual giving Law / policy PFRA PFRA and Manchester sign street fundraising regulation agreement

Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Year-round E15 One of Many Topics Taking Center Stage at Classic Year-round E15 One of Many Topics Taking Center Stage at ClassicCommodity Classic officially got underway with a welcome reception Wednesday evening. Indiana Corn Marketing Council President Mike Beard from Frankfort, IN told Hoosier Ag Today in Orlando that one of the issues that will keep coming up this week is the possibility that the year-round E15 waiver will not happen in time for the summer driving period because of the recent government shutdown.“For things to get done people have to show up to work and that didn’t happen in DC. So, we know the opportunity that exists from having that waiver in place. Trump’s behind it, he’s instructed the EPA to initiate it, it just needs to get done.”Trade is the hot topic here in Orlando. Obviously, Beard is hopeful for good news about China soon, but he said corn growers also want to see the steel and aluminum tariffs levied against Canada and Mexico removed prior to the signing of USMCA, which is still not a done deal.“We think that we would move forward faster, at least with those two countries, if we drop those tariffs. Don’t forget, there are still retaliatory tariffs from Mexico in the form of pork tariffs, so our pork industry is suffering from not being able to quite as much product as they could.”Beard is looking forward to hearing from Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue Friday morning to address these issues, among others.“He’s always pretty upbeat. I’m sure he’ll still be upbeat, and he’ll tell us how we’re going to get there. Big question mark is when.”In remarks to the House Agriculture Committee today, USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue said the final rule allowing year-round E15 may not be done in time for the start of the summer driving season. Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Geoff Cooper had the following statement:“We were very disappointed to hear that the regulatory fix allowing year-round E15 may not be completed by the beginning of the summer driving season. The American ethanol industry and farmers across the country have suffered greatly as a result of former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s efforts to destroy demand for renewable fuels and undermine the effectiveness of the Renewable Fuel Standard. That is why President Trump’s promise last October to allow year-round sales of E15 by this summer was met with such enthusiasm and appreciation, and why the suggestion today that EPA will break that promise represents such a gut punch, if it is indeed true.“We have no doubt that the so-called ‘RIN reforms’ sought by oil refiners are bogging this rulemaking down. Thus, I reiterate the request we formally made last month to split RIN reform and year-round E15 into two separate rulemakings and expedite the E15 rule. The year-round E15 provisions are straightforward, and there is no reason they could not be promulgated by this summer, particularly as President Trump made the commitment to resolve this red-tape regulatory barrier nearly five months ago. Ethanol plants are shutting their doors and laying off workers, while farmers are facing the worst market conditions in more than a decade—we need EPA to honor the President’s promise to allow year-round E15 now!”Source: Renewable Fuels Association Home Indiana Agriculture News Year-round E15 One of Many Topics Taking Center Stage at Classic By Eric Pfeiffer – Feb 27, 2019 SHARE Previous articleIndustrial Hemp Likely Coming to Hoosier FieldsNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for February 28, 2019 Eric Pfeiffer
Uganda urged to free two journalist held since last week on libel charges Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders welcomes CBS radio’s resumption of normal broadcasting at 9:30 a.m. on 23 October after being closed for a year. Its return to the air turns the page on the government’s closure of four radio stations amid rioting in Kampala in September 2009.The press freedom organization nonetheless remains concerned about the climate for the media in Uganda. After the murders of two journalists last month in still unclear circumstances and other cases of physical violence and intimidation, we urge the authorities to do everything possible to protect the media and respect free speech in the run-up to next February’s elections.CBS and three other stations, Suubi FM, Radio Two Akaboozi Kubiri and Radio Sapienta, were shut down in September 2009 amid rioting that caused dozens of deaths. Accusing them of “inciting revolt,” the authorities claimed they had encouraged supporters of the king of the traditional kingdom of Buganda to attack members of the Ankole ethnic group, to which president Yoweri Museveni belongs. The stations denied the charge.CBS was the last for the four stations to resume broadcasting. The others managed to get the suspension order lifted more quickly.More information Organisation June 4, 2021 Find out more October 26, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 CBS radio station allowed to resume broadcasting after year-long closure Uganda blocks social media and messaging apps, isolating election UgandaAfrica Ugandan president threatens to “bankrupt” leading daily January 13, 2021 Find out more News News RSF_en to go further News Follow the news on Uganda March 12, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information UgandaAfrica News
July 24, 2003 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Reporters Without Borders suspended for one year from UN commission on human rights News – Download the report Organisation Help by sharing this information Related documents Report_ONU_gb.pdfPDF – 47.21 KB – Read the report Reporters Without Borders’s consultative status with the United Nations commission on human rights has been suspended for one year on Cuba’s initiative. The organisation condemns this “unfair decision” and proposes a radical overhaul of the commission in a report entitled Wheeling and dealing, incompetence and “non-action.” Reporters Without Borders’s consultative status with the United Nations commission on human rights was suspended on July 24 for one year at the request of Libya and Cuba because activists with the organisation staged a protest during the inauguration of the commission’s last session in March against the decision to let Libya chair the commission.Reporters Without Borders insists that granting the chair to Col. Gaddafi’s regime has been a disgrace to the commission.The UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the body that took this decision, never invited Reporters Without Borders to explain its action. The failure to respect sanction procedures has been criticised by the French government, which lodged a request for a postponement of any decision to suspend the organisation. This suspension of one of the few press freedom organisations to have consultative status with ECOSOC is farce of the kind that increasingly characterizes the commission on human rights.Reporters Without Borders today publishes a report which details the excesses, shortcomings and accelerating decline of this commission, which dictatorships such as Cuba and China have taken over in order to strip it of all substance.The reports proposes a series of reforms that are essential if the commission is to be rescued: limiting the right to vote to those states that have ratified the main international human rights covenants, naming an independent human rights expert to chair the commission, and abolishing the so-called “non-action” motions that have repeatedly been used to block debates.The results of the vote on the suspension of the consultative status of Reporters without borders:In favour (27): Azerbaijan, Benin, Bhutan, Brazil, Burundi, China, Congo, Cuba, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Iran, Jamaica, Kenya, Libya, Malaysia, Mozambique, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe.Against (23): Andorra, Australia, Chile, El Salvador, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Peru, Portugal, Republic of Korea, Romania, Sweden, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and United States.Abstentions (4): Argentina, Ecuador, Japan, and Senegal.
